Throughout our 50-year history, we have adapted and grown with the auction industry, introducing new marketplaces, new technology and new tools to help auction houses grow their businesses, whilst providing new ways for bidders to access auctions across the world.

We now operate six world-leading marketplaces and proprietary auction platform technology for curated online auctions, seamlessly connecting bidders from around the world to trusted auctioneers.

And we are the trusted partner to those auctioneers. We create value for auction houses by providing access to a global bidder base, leading online marketplace capabilities, and a range of value-added tools and services that enable auctioneers to maximise value on lots sold and make their businesses more efficient.

For bidders, we provide access to a curated selection of millions of unique and specialised secondary items in a trusted, simple, sustainable and convenient way.

Our marketplaces & services

Our technology 

We have invested in the development and enhancement of robust, flexible and highly refined auction platform technology that underpins everything that we do.

Our platform technology is at the heart of our business, powering live and timed auctions across our six marketplaces, and a white label offering.

Behind the scenes, our technology enables us to provide auctioneers with e-commerce and auction strategy support, marketing and demand generation, and to provide analytics and insights that help them grow their business.   

It means we can offer a consistent user experience, service support and system delivery through multiple touchpoints, with real-time audio and video broadcast of auctions, across three major sectors: industrial machinery, construction & farm equipment; art, antiques & collectables; and consumer surplus & retail returns.
