A Wiltshire-based business is modernising the world of auctioneering by combining it with 21st century technology.

The Auction Hub in Westbury is helping customers to sell their antiques, art, collectables and other quality items online with the support of auction experts and specialist consultants.

Founded by James Harvey, the company combines the service and expertise you would expect from a traditional auction house with the speed and efficiency of an online platform.

The Auction Hub is selling antique and contemporary items including fine art, furniture, collectables and much more, for customers throughout the region.

Mr Harvey began his career at Phillips Auctioneers, followed by a period working in London and New York for Mallett.

More recently he was the chief executive officer of The Fine Art Auction Group with auction and retail businesses in Berkshire and London.

He is now putting his years of experience to further use, helping those wishing to sell quality items to prospective buyers all over the world.

Mr Harvey said: "All lots are appraised and catalogued by our specialists and the items are then sold via Auctionet.com, Europe’s leading auction marketplace with more than 320,000 registered users.”

This means The Auction Hub can sell items faster than traditional auction houses and, more importantly, it gives sellers access to a very large buyer base.

The company provides services from the sale of single items to complete house clearances, providing a full service from pick-up to pay-out.

Mr Harvey said: “We’re proud to be bringing the high standard of service you would expect at a traditional auction house to online customers throughout Wiltshire.

"Whilst other online auction services exist, what sets us apart is our highly efficient systems, expertise gained from decades of experience in the trade and a sound understanding of what our clients are trying to achieve.

“We offer home valuations and welcome consignments at all price points and of all periods and genres."

This makes The Auction Hub perfectly positioned to provide a bespoke service for those wanting to find a new home for their pre-loved items.
