Thank you to all at Railtons. An excellent service, and Mr Railton himself dropped off the chair that we wanted back.

We were impressed with Mr Railton’s knowledge of things from the very start, which gave us confidence in clearing Granny’s house with his firm. He warned us that the proceeds from the sale would not be great, but in fact they made more than expected.

Caroline Peberdy, Durham

I wish that I had discovered Railtons before now. When Mum downsized, he was very patient with her, visiting her after we had left. She is now in sheltered housing, with her remaining treasures around about her. The funds from the jewellery that he sold for her, has been given to her grandchildren.

You had so much attention to detail – I was most impressed by your cataloguing. And not being ‘on the spot’, you made it all very easy and sold things quickly.

We managed to furnish our daughter’s house with interesting items for under £500!

Mrs Horsfall, Chester

quote 11

I would not hesitate to recommend Railtons to anyone. They cleared the house swiftly and cleanly, and were a pleasure to deal with. They even took stuff out of the skip, that they sold! The proceeds from the sale far exceeded out expectations, not least the items that we had thought were rubbish!

I had never been to an auction before, and now I am addicted! Jim Railton makes it seem very easy, and I have had some fabulous purchases from his salesroom.
