I lost my mum earlier this year and needed to clear her furniture.

Not knowing who to ask and not really sure who I could trust, I didn’t really want to arrange a house clearance company because I wasn’t sure of the value of the furniture. I was going to contact our local auction rooms, but then I happened to see a post on Facebook from Gordon Brockman of True Values. So, I decided to ring him and we arranged for him to come and look at the furniture.

I could not have asked for a more friendly, knowledgeable and honest person. He has helped me sell some of the furniture and he has kept me updated throughout the whole process.

I can honestly highly recommend Gordon. He has been totally fair and honest with me. He is in fact still helping me with various items.

“It was an easy choice for us to choose Gordon Brockman out of three different house clearance companies. He came across as being totally genuine and honest, with a wonderful sense of spirit. My husband and I had already put the contents of his parents’ house into different piles – one for charity, one for disposal and one for hopeful auction of some questionable pieces. Gordon breezed through the rooms and could see at a glance the pieces that he recommended for auction sales.

“We were bowled over by him pointing out some tatty Japanese tins, which we were going to throw in the bin, to which he replied in no uncertain terms that each could fetch between £65-£80 at auction!

“I could go on about other contents but, suffice to say, we benefitted hugely from his exceptional service. Several years later, we chose Mr Brockman again to value the contents of my parents’ house after probate. Again he came up trumps and, to this day, we have recommended him to friends and neighbours."

“I asked Gordon to provide a valuation of my late mother’s jewellery and cutlery, for probate purposes, towards the end of 2019. Extremely helpful throughout, Gordon guided me through the whole process. He came to the house to assess everything and provided me with a detailed valuation within a few days. He then gave me a very fair price for some of the items and helped me to sell the remainder at auction, using his detailed knowledge of the local markets to place items in the most appropriate sales.”

When my mum passed away in November 2019, she left some jewellery and sovereigns that hadn’t seen the light of day for years. None of the items were particularly valuable in their own right but, together, they were worth a tidy sum. Gordon was very knowledgeable and offered me a really good price for all, while suggesting items I might like to keep for posterity, such as an engraved gold brooch with an inscription dated 1844. With the money, he offered me, I was able to purchase a very nice watch, which I wear everyday and which reminds me of my parents. I would highly recommend him.

“Gordon Brockman is a brilliant auctioneer. He worked incredibly hard during the evening. He had over 80 lots to sell, and had to persuade buyers to part with their hard-earned cash. He did this with humour and professionalism, entertaining an audience of about 100, most of whom went home very pleased to have secured a bargain.”
I am very grateful for all you did to help. To be honest, it was only after all the things had been disposed of that I realised how traumatic the whole experience had been, and how much worse it could have been, but for your kindness and understanding.
