The Diss Auction Rooms of TW Gaze is distinctive amongst its genre. Those of us who work here are justifiably proud.
Amongst its best assets, it boasts being a long-established privately owned business providing a traditional service with a 21st Century flourish. It hosts 52 weekly sales of over 2000 lots, plus over 20 special category Saturday sales, every year and incorporates a calendar of diverse specialist auctions run by a team of enthusiastic and knowledgeable valuers and cataloguers; a dedicated staff including leading regional authorities on, among other subjects, Modern Design and Architectural Salvage. It offers competitive commission rates for both buyers and sellers. Vendors' cheques are sent out by post on the evening of the sale.
The Diss Auction Rooms is a large auction site incorporating spacious car park and catering facilities at the Bidders Bistro; ground-floor access to all areas, disabled toilets and baby-change facilities. It offers a full and captivating day out for the whole family; conveniently situated in the historic market town of Diss, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, it is very much on the tourist route. The auction rooms themselves are centrally placed and easily accessible by foot and vehicle.
The thriving auction rooms have been an important mainstay of the town for over 150 years, originating in the farming industry of the area and the historic need for live-stock auctioneers. It subsequently evolved into a vibrant chattels auction house and today, represents a dynamic auction business that serves both the local community and national and international markets.
It is also recognisable to many via its "as seen on TV" claim, having regularly hosted many programmes over the years including BBC television's "Flog It!", "Bargain Hunt", "Cash in the Attic" and "Cash in the Celebrity Attic" and "The Antiques Road Trip". Some avid viewers make special sojourns to the familiar "set", travelling internationally in some cases to savour the experience for themselves!
We hope to be able to welcome you as either buyer or seller, whether local or long-distance, in person or via the web and trust that it may be the first occasion of many.
