About our Events

Here’s a few examples of events we have run in the past.   If you are interested in holding an event at your business, library, retirement village or group, please contact .

“Collectables Showcase”

Learn more about the value of your special items.

In the same vein as the well known “Antiques Roadshow” television series, the Abbeys Auctions team provide insights into items brought from home and give an indicative value if the item were to be sold via public auction.

Where possible, the team prefers photos to be sent in prior to give the team time to do some research, but this is not essential.  Typically all items are placed on a table at the front of the room, and our valuers pick an item to discuss in front of the whole group.

Other ways this event can be run are as one-on-one sessions.  This can be worthwhile if attendees have items of higher value, or group lots such as stamps or coins.

Other alternatives include Fine Jewellery valuations, Fine Art valuations, Stamps & Coins showcase – talk to us about your requirements!

“Downsizing: Tips and Techniques”

It’s really hard to know where to start when it comes to letting go of personal possessions. The team from Abbeys Auctions and Classic Moves provide handy hints for starting the process of relocating and give some insights into the types of items you may be surprised can sell at public auction.

“Understanding Retirement Living: Free Information Session”

This session is often held in conjunction with other suppliers integral to a move into retirement living.  Having a panel of experts from Real Estate, Legal and Financial fields in addition to services such as Classic Moves and even residents from Retirement Villages who can talk about their new lifestyle provides attendees with an opportunity to have all their questions about moving into Retirement living answered in one session.   The Classic Moves component includes helpful information to assist people planning to downsize to retirement living or smaller apartments. Dealing with a lifetime of accumulated personal possessions is often a barrier for people who would like to move. The Classic Moves team provides practical tips about how to declutter and prepare the family home for sale.
