Sworders auction salerooms are based four miles north of Bishop’s Stortford in the village of Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex, in purpose-built, environmentally friendly, award-winning premises which provide spacious, comfortable auction rooms, over 200 car parking spaces, loading facilities and a sale day café.
The original auction rooms were designed, built and officially opened in 2008 by HRH Princess Michael of Kent, it remains the largest straw bale building in Europe. However Sworders’ rapid global expansion, especially into the Chinese and Far Eastern market, and the continued development of the auction programme, meant that we soon outgrew it. A recent extension increased the floor space by almost 50%, providing valuable and much needed storage capacity.
As auctioneers we see ourselves as part of the recycling industry. We pass items from people who no longer require them to new owners who will covet and treasure them. Our flagship auction rooms, built in such an environmentally friendly manner, reflect the very nature of our business.
