Client quotes

I just wanted to drop you and your staff a note to say thank you for making me so welcome after I drove up from Suffolk on Friday to view the pewter. It was fascinating to hear more from you about the origins of the pewter and even more exciting now given that we were successful with two of our bids, and are now the proud owners of three Thomas Curtis plates and a Spanish pestle and mortar.

Thank you for your nice reply, I really appreciate it. I want to tell you again how much I enjoy buying from Wilkinson's, you're certainly my favorite auction to deal with, you offer fabulous antiques and are so thoughtful after your auctions as far as packing my items carefully and shipping them to me quickly, you've earned my business

US Buyer

I am most impressed – this is better than being at the view – I can hardly not bid now?! - a response to our condition report and photographs available upon request.

UK Buyer

Can you please ensure that you pass on my thanks to everyone for their help and hospitality too yesterday. It was very much appreciated. - a response to a viewing day visit by one of our customers.

UK Buyer

I wanted to write and thank you, not only for delivering our table so promptly, but for running an auction house that makes the whole buying experience a joy from beginning to end. I've been a regular at auctions since my late teens, but the warmth of the welcome I received at Wilkinsons was a first. I was offered tea or coffee, asked whether I needed a torch before it had even occurred to me that I might, and the porters were more than happy to move things if necessary. You gave me interesting background about one of the pictures, and I was so grateful for the lift to the station - another first.

UK Buyer

Many thanks indeed for sorting this out.

The item arrived this afternoon as promised, really well packed and met all my expectations.

Please pass on my thanks to all helped – you’ve provided a really excellent service – which is wonderful.

US Buyer

They arrived in great shape this afternoon and I thank you particularly for the excellent packing provided by Wilkinson’s almost as a courtesy. Some auctioneers are not so helpful.

Just to share with you my views on my first experience of 'shopping' at Wilkinsons! The mechanics of bidding on line were efficiently dealt with, polite and very business like. My introduction to the premises and staff of Wilkinsons was extremely pleasurable and it was a delight for me to share with Sid some of the showroom examples in an enthusiastic and truly equitable fashion, no lecturing here! A thrill to welcome the van with my purchase, but what a friendly and enjoyable meeting of minds. Over many years of buying, never have I felt so comfortable as I did in my kitchen with you two.

UK Buyer

I thank you and your teams for the auction and the packaging, crating and transport services. I have bought a few paintings from different places, and I must say your help was the best I have ever received.

Australian Buyer

My 2 brothers join me in conveying our heartfelt appreciation to you and your colleagues, Matthew, Robert & Poppy for the exceptional courteous client care we have been privileged to receive at all times in connection with the valuations undertaken yesterday and subsequent collection arrangements for the Auction.

Whilst acknowledging that this continues to be an extremely emotionally challenging period of bereavement, we have all greatly appreciated your excellent professional guidance and client care – thank you.
