Our Story

Darwen Auctioneers distinguishes itself from traditional house clearance a business, by offering a comprehensive service that not only includes house clearance, but also the sorting, cataloguing, photographing, and auctioning of saleable items to a global audience. This approach allows for the repurposing of items that would otherwise be destined for landfill, aligning with the company’s environmentally friendly ethos. Darwen Auctioneers operates as a family-run business, emphasizing customer service and community engagement.

Our services extend to arranging both full and partial house clearances for an initial fee, after which, we handle the sale of items through their auction platform. Unsold items or those deemed not saleable are disposed of responsibly. The unique selling proposition (USP) of Darwen Auctioneers lies in their ability to not only cover the costs of clearance but also to potentially provide a substantial return to the vendors from the auction sales, after deducting commission and lotting fees. This contrasts with the typical model of house clearance businesses, where, owners do not benefit financially from the disposal of their items

Our Obligations

Darwen Auctioneers places significant emphasis on legal compliance, particularly in relation to the sale of regulated items such as knives. It is imperative for vendors to adhere to legal requirements, as they are held accountable for any associated costs related to items deemed unsalable or non-compliant with legislation.

We provide vendors with the opportunity to financially benefit from the sale of their items while ensuring the responsible disposal of unsaleable goods. Our comprehensive service, spanning from clearance to auction, distinguishes us within the industry.

This commitment to legal compliance, environmental responsibility, and comprehensive service provision is swiftly establishing Darwen Auctioneers as one of the premier choices in the Northwest, offering an unparalleled service to our clientele.
