Want to know exactly who we are? You've come to the right place!

What do we do?

We are industry-leading asset valuers and auctioneers, providing an end-to-end service to organisations across the UK and globally.

We save our clients significant costs, generate unexpected income and help them to deliver sustainability objectives.

Every business has equipment or surplus items in storage or at the end of their lifecycle that are no longer required.

We help extend the life of these assets, diverting them from landfill, reducing storage costs and finding buyers who will re-use, restore or repurpose them. This circular approach drives change and delivers actionable results that benefit the environment, economy and communities.
