What our customers say

"We were impressed by the energy and enthusiasm we encountered at Holloways and delighted by the amount our furniture achieved."

"I have worked with Holloways for 5 years both as Trustee of the late Amanda Severne, when Holloways sold over 5OO lots from Shakenhurst, as a personal vendor and as purchaser in their sales. At all times I have been most impressed by the exemplary Holloways personal service. The catalogues are well researched and informative, the pre and after sale paperwork is clear and concise. This attention to detail and care of their clients is what sets Holloways apart & I shall continue to buy & sell there as I enjoy the Holloways experience!"

"I used Holloways to help me sell a great deal of furniture that I had inherited after my parents death that I could not fit into our current house.  Under emotional circumstances they could not have made my life easier and were unbelievably efficient.  The furniture was in a storage unit close to our house and they went there to value it and then moved it out to the sale for me.  They made it totally stress free and I had to do very little.  On top of that they sold the furniture very well.  Having used London firms before who charge considerably more without the personal service that I received, I would recommend them most highly."
