Company description
Bedford is unique amongst provincial towns in having a busy and thriving auction every Saturday. In fact it has four auctions all conducted simultaneously in a 30, 000 square foot auction centre. Auctions are changing with the increased use of the internet.
Nowadays a number of our auctions are held ‘live’ with buyers being able to bid live just as though they were sitting in the saleroom, but from the comfort of their home or even the beach! These auctions are linked onto the world wide web via our website allowing the remote buyer to see an image and description of the lot and hear the auctioneer selling. The variety of goods sold has also increased and as well as selling antiques, collectables, furniture, and other effects we now regularly auction plant and machinery, cars, vans, lorries, catering equipment as well as the whole range of modern domestic appliances and modern IT equipment.
In addition we now hold regular specialist auctions including jewellery, rock & pop memorabilia, sporting guns, 20th century design and collectable toys. So why not visit the Bedford Auction Centre or to get a further ‘taste’ of what is on sale this week visit.

Check Goods First!


My feedback here is based entirely on a single buying experience, please be aware. I bought 3 lots from W&H Peacock a few weeks ago in the electrical goods and small items auction running concurrent to other auctions on the same premises (motor vehicles, white goods, industrial equipment, gardening equipment etc). It is clearly stipulated by Peacocks that all items are sold 'as is' i.e. without any sort of warranty. THIS IS FOR GOOD REASON!! I proceeded to bid on and purchase the following: 1 x Tomtom Satnav; 1 x Garmin Satnav, 1 x 8GB iPod Touch. I purchased all without testing and only the Tomtom device has proved functional. Both the others failed to power up and have furthermore proved to be damaged beyond repair after evaluation by specialist repair company (T**** UK). As an aside please be aware of both VAT and Buyers Premium which can significantly add to the price of any purchase.

The only auctioneer I have ever been to where they charge you £5 to bid. Best avoided.
