 Home Visits



For whole house contents and larger collections, we are pleased to offer complimentary home visits. One of our valuers will spend as much time at the property as needed with you and produce an inventory of all saleable items together with auction estimates. They will also be able to advise on the next steps including collection, logistics and sale at auction. Please note during the current COVID-19 situation, we are still offering home visits, but whilst following the social distancing guidelines.

Case Study

A Lucky London Surprise



On inheriting a London home from a deceased relative, the family contacted a local ‘man in a van’ to value and remove its contents. After receiving a valuation of just £550, they were ready to sell.


Fortunately, an inquisitive relative sought an expert opinion from Dawsons. Much to the family’s delight, our team of specialists valued and sold the collection for an impressive £86,000.


An important suite of six 17th century colonial Anglo-Indian chairs. Sold for £32,000.
