Our Ethos

“Old style values. New style auctions”

Welcome to Atkins Auctions, your local auction house. Based in Axminster, Devon, we are proud to deliver outstanding old-style values and service, coupled with new style, accessible auctions.

Traditionally auction rooms have been considered a place of mystery for a lot of people; too intimidating to enjoy the experience. Many people are confused with how the process works, presuming it to be complicated – and both buyers and sellers can be disappointed with the amount of hidden costs they incur with all sorts of added extra fee’s.

We want to change this! After 30 years in the antiques business we can testify to the fact that auctions are a wonderful process to be enjoyed and should be simple, profitable and enjoyable. Customers will benefit from our extensive experience in the business whilst receiving a friendly, relaxed and efficient family service.

At Atkins Auctions we offer a set 15% commission rate – for buyers and sellers – that covers everything we do. EVERYTHING. There are no extra charges, leaving our customers confident there will be no surprises or disappointments. We believe multiple added extra fee’s should be a thing of the past with total fee transparency you can count on.

Come browse on our viewing days and pick out that special item and own your own antique: it’s a lot of fun. Get our opinion on an item’s valuation. Let us take care of your house clearances with knowledge and speed. It’s what we know and what we love to do.
