Kent Online Auctions, currently, only hold regular online auctions. These are either held through our own website for large/heavy items such as furniture, or via a third-party auction house portal which gives us a Worldwide audience for collectable and easily posted items. This will be clearly shown against each auction heading.
We are conveniently located in Kent and can arrange a courier service for any deliveries across the mainland UK. Cost of delivery are paid by the purchaser, unless the seller agrees to cover these costs.
We are located in a 1,200sq ft building so have ample secure storage. Collection of any items is very easy as we have a large hardstanding area and double doors which give ample access for any courier or purchaser to load items easily and we are always available, during office hours and sometimes outside of office hours, to assist with loading.
Our staff are always friendly and professional. Any collections must be arranged with ample notice being given as we cannot accept unannounced collections.
