Selling At Auctions
We hold four Quarterly Fine auctions each year, 12 monthly Collectors’ auctions and numerous specialist sales. We are well known in Surrey and Hampshire because we have been in business as Ewbank Auctioneers since 1990, occupying prominent high profile premises in probably the best location in the South of England, close to the A3 and M25. The auction rooms are 4 miles from Guildford and the same distance from Woking main line station (London Waterloo 25 minutes).
The building has recently been refurbished with new insulation, new heating and air conditioning, new lighting, a new reception area and additional auction floor space with a second saleroom on the first floor. The new modern interior provides over 6,000 sq feet on two floor and is an intimate and sympathetic setting for the display of antiques and fine art.
Chris Ewbank andd Tim Duggan head up our probate department which deals with probate valuations and sales. In addition we advise executors on security and provide safe-keeping facilities for valuable items. Clients usually come to us because we have acted for them before or we have been recommended by friends or professional advisers.

We specialise in providing a valuation service for executors, including detailed discussions on valuations, security, family division and sale by auction.
Valuable items can be removed to our premises for safekeeping. It is important for executors to be able to show that they have used due diligence in making returns to the Capital Taxes Office.
The basis of valuations is an assessment of market value and as auctioneers who are constantly in the market place we are ideally equipped to carry out probate valuations.
