Torquay (Devon) Valuation Venue

Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood are the largest fine art auctioneers and valuers in the West Country with a large saleroom complex in Exeter in Devon, which covers the whole of the South West of England. We have an extensive programme of valuation days across Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset.

Our fine and specialist sales attract an international audience by virtue of Internet and telephone bidding, which connect our Torbay based sellers with a much wider audience.

We occasionally hold valuation days in Torquay in Devon which provide an opportunity for clients based in Torbay to have their fine art chattels valued with a view to them being consigned to a future auction.

We usually hold several valuation days in Torquay each year and have seen many valuable lots from Torbay, consigned to our regular and fine sales, achieve very good prices at auction.

If you would like more details of the valuation days we hold in Torquay or other places throughout Devon or further afield, please call us on (01392) 413100.
