Welcome to Amersham Auction Rooms


The Government has now announced that effective from mid June, auctioneers may resume their activities and we will therefore be holding our first post lockdown auction on Thursday 9 July

The fully illustrated catalogue for this event will be simultaneously posted on this website and that of Saleroom.com during the week commencing 29 June

Meanwhile, key members of staff will continue to handle email communications and telephone calls and will be happy to discuss valuations and associated enquiries: and in the first instance, please ask for Simon Knowles on 07786 836012 or info@amershamauctionrooms.co.uk

The Auction Rooms will open, fully, on Monday 29 June. Please call us to arrange valuations

Please note that for the time being, due to the need to for us to protect our staff and all visitors to the AuctionRooms, in the wake of the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had to introduce certain strict new procedures and protocols which have necessitated changes from some established practices and we ask everyone to be understanding and tolerant in these changed times. Details will be announced shortly and/or will be posted within the premises, as appropriate

Keep safe and we look forward to your return
