Auction Valuations

For those contemplating selling at auction, we accept entries Monday - Thursday from 10am to 3pm. Our valuers are present, and we are delighted to give a verbal appraisal free of charge. If our valuers are not available, then we are content to accept the items for consideration and research by our valuers who will then make contact to discuss values and how to proceed. If it is not possible to visit the auction rooms at these times, then our valuers are happy to visit you at no cost. Alternatively, you can email us photographs of your items and any details to enquiries@mendipauctionrooms.co.uk or using the form below and one of our specialists will get back to you as soon as possible.


Probate Valuations

It can be a difficult and distressing time when arranging the deceased estate of a loved one. A full written probate valuation of the property and chattels is a legal necessity and something that can save you a great deal of money. We have a caring and sympathetic approach and aim to make this as simple as possible. With experts in property as well as antiques and possessions, we can deliver a ‘one stop’ service.

In valuing chattels, we will spend as much time as required at the house and produce a full inventory of all the items within. The values are based on a low and realistic market price. This is important as it is the figure used to calculate any inheritance tax liability. A quick and efficient service is important, and we can usually attend the property within a few days, no matter the location.

Once probate has been granted, we will be able to sell all saleable items for you and dispose of any unsaleable ones. Using our local and reliable carriers, we can collect single items or clear whole properties from small flats to mansions.

Insurance Valuations

We can provide insurance valuations for single items through to whole house contents. Insurers recommend valuations are updated every 5 years, and a recent survey showed 70% of households are not properly insured. Please contact us for advice and to book an appointment.

Divorce, Family Division & Contested Wills

We can also prepare valuations for divorce, family division and contested wills, enabling disputes to be settled based on realistic market values.

House Clearances

Through our recommended providers, we can arrange a full house clearance service from top to bottom, no matter how big or small the property. We can assess the best method of disposal of every item within a property and we can arrange transportation of suitable goods to the Auction Rooms and the clearance of the remaining items. We strongly support recycling and, where appropriate, unsaleable items will be recycled or given to charity to minimise the impact on the environment. Our house clearance partners will leave the property clean and tidy ready to go on the market. If required, through our Killens property teams, we can then advise on the disposal of the property.


We do not offer a packaging and postal service but if you have difficulty delivering or collecting items to and from the auction rooms then we can arrange to have them collected for you at a reasonable cost through our recommended providers.

Property Agency

Our property teams are experts in selling and letting all forms of property and are firmly focussed on delivering a proactive service that maximises sale or letting proceeds and is a seamless as possible.
