Within the UK, the general and collective market account for a huge amount of the total assets sales within the auction industry. This specific market sector covers a broad range of assets that are set for disposal and can include luxury watches, limited edition trainers, electrical good such as TV’s, audio equipment, gardening tools as well as kitchen and bathroom appliances.

It is estimated that in their average lifetime, a member of the UK will spend around £30,000 on their garden including the specialised garden equipment used for basic maintenance. This makes specialised auctions incredibly important, especially for businesses who operate in such a niche market.

In 2016, UK home occupants renovated over 800,000 bathrooms and with the total amount spent on Kitchens being set to surpass £3billion for the first time ever, more and more time is being spent in the auction house with customers wanting to achieve the best ‘bang for their buck’ on items that can run into the thousands.
