Valuation Services


If you would like to sell items by auction with Sworders, the first thing we need to do is to provide you with a complimentary auction valuation, whether you are enquiring about a single item or an entire collection. 

An auction valuation is an estimate usually given as a price range, e.g. £100-150.  This is the range in which our specialist believes the item will sell at auction. It is based upon a range of factors, including past auction results for similar items and market trends. 

There are a number of easy-to-use ways to receive a valuation:

Visit Us

Due to Government guidelines, our offices are now open on an appointment-only basis. We are still able to provide free no obligation valuations. If you would like an item valued, please click here to book an appointment.

Virtual Valuation Service

This service enables you, via a smart phone or tablet ,to show us around an entire property, a collection or single item and enables our valuer to ask questions and highlight specific items.  To learn more about this service or to arrange a virtual valuation, please click here. 

By Email

If you would like us to conduct a valuation via email, please send a description of the item, or collection, with image(s), to us at Please note the more information you can provide, the more accurate our valuation will be. Once we have received your email, one of our specialists will be in touch.
