Richard Winterton Auctioneers Best Kept Village Community Competition

The Winterton name has been synonymous with auctioneering in Staffordshire for seven generations since 1864.

Richard Winterton Auctioneers provides a range of professional services including:

  • House clearances
  • Probate
  • Jewellery valuations for probate
  • Insurance valuations
  • Free auction estimates and free home visits

We run large regular well-organised auctions dealing in anything from jewellery, watches and furniture to specialist items such as coins, medals, vintage toys, rare whisky and even vehicles.

Free home visits to discuss house clearances or larger items are available and we offer free valuations every Tuesday at The Lichfield Auction Centre where our friendly valuers are ready to help you find that hidden gem!

We are hard-working and pride ourselves on our integrity.
