About Us At Hansons Auctioneers we thrive on history and making memories. Hansons Auctioneers offers four auction centres, free valuations across the UK and its own bidding platform – hansonslive.co.uk – enabling it to reach an international audience of buyers. Every auction is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience filled with passion, drama, theatre, romance and excitement – from the first bid to when the gavel sounds. For more than 12 years, our team of specialist and general valuers have helped both vendors and buyers embrace this journey and discover something truly amazing. At the heart of Hansons, we are driven by the question, ‘If an object could talk, what would it tell us?’ From truly amazing pieces to family heirlooms and old collectables, every single item is a unique piece of history and we can’t wait to help you discover its story and the memories behind it. Injecting a personal touch – and a little bit of love – into everything we do, we’re passionate about teasing out the sentiment, personal history and emotions attached to every object we auction. By bringing these stories to life, we add a sense of wonder and joy to the mundane and see every day as another opportunity to find something new and unexpected. Whether you want to embrace the story around a cherished family heirloom or rescue unknown treasures from a lifetime of being trapped in a box, we can’t wait to see what might be hidden in your home. By helping to tell forgotten stories, everyone who places a bid at Hansons can guarantee that they’re not just buying an object, but their own little piece of history. We want our clients from all over the world to come to us with a sense of excitement, leave with a smile on their face and be part of the Hansons community, because it’s a very happy place which leaves a positive mark on the world around us.
