Downsizing? What to keep, what to sell?

Moving is hard enough, we have all done it, Scammells makes it easier.

Moving into a smaller residence is the perfect opportunity to take a good look at everything you own and decide what you’d like to keep and what you’d perhaps like to move on. This process becomes much easier and assuring when a Scammells team member is there to provide their expert opinion on what your items are worth. Not just what they’re worth now, but what they might be worth in the future if you do decide to hold on to them.
Anything you do decide to sell is then easily managed by the team at Scammells, freeing up space and money for you and your new abode.

We love the discovery of the hidden treasures in your home.

And we have so many stories to share of the “gold” at the back of the cupboard, left forgotten for years.  Our staff are trained and each have their own area of expertise, and together there is little we don’t know of Antiques, Art and the more obscure collectables.

At Scammells, it’s our belief that expectations are managed best with honesty, experience, and knowledge. Our experienced appraisers know what questions to ask and where to research items in order to achieve the best price. This allows them to provide an accurate idea of what the value of your item is before the auction itself reveals the true value.
