Buying through Stevens Auctioneers

A different approach.

You will have noticed that the auction world has changed thanks to Covid-19.

Lockdowns and restrictions have made matters difficult but we still want to put on the best auction experience we can and ask for your assistance to do so.

Stevens Auctioneers do not have static business premises at this time. That means that ALL bids are taken through the online auction platform and all buyer registrations will be completed through that medium also. You will have the opportunity to leave automatic bids if you are unable to monitor the sale but as the auction will be on a timed basis, please note that a last minute bid will advance the time by five minutes before the auction closes.


  1. We are unable to offer viewing of any lots whilst a lockdown or Tier restrictions are in force, but we will put up to six photographs of each lot on the online auction platform (and can supply others or a viewing video by email if required.) We can also give verbal condition assessments by telephone up to 48 hours before the auction starts. Outside of Covid restrictions, strict diarised viewing in the week prior to the sale can be arranged if requested.

  2. Collection of lots will be by a strict diary booking system and at a location and date(s) designated prior to the auction (North/Mid Devon based). Full Covid protocols will be in effect at all times during collection with face masks being mandatory please.

  3. We offer a full in-house shipping service for all lots that can be posted (noted in each lot description). Our charges (inclusive of postage and secure packaging) can be viewed by clicking on the button below.

  4. We will also deliver up to a fifty mile land area radius of Great Torrington for a fee which is charged once, irrespective of the number of lots being delivered.

Once normality resumes, Stevens Auctioneers will seek suitable fixed premises in order to offer in-person bidding and live auction events.
