Wellington Auctions was formed in 2007, initially it operated from Grays in the Mews Antiques Centre, before moving out of central London to an office in Loughton in 2011, it recently moved again to its current address in mid-2017.
The business is primarily focused on the sale at auction of Military Medals of all nations, with a heavy emphasis on British Campaign and Gallantry Medals, although we regularly offer medals and militaria of other nations as well.
In 2017 it started also selling items in a retail style on a commission basis.
Initially publishing paper catalogues via the publication ‘Medal News’ in 2015 the business changed its method of operation, and now has a focus on e-sales, we currently have an email database of several thousand people and growing, as well as Social Media accounts with over 10,000 followers. We also advertise our auctions via The Saleroom website, ensuring wide exposure of items in our sales.
We seek to offer a low cost auction platform, charging a maximum of 12.5% commission, as opposed to the much higher charges imposed by other auction houses. We also negotiate better rates for larger consignments or for items of a higher value.
