SDL Auctions, one of the UK’s largest auction networks, is to hold auctions at Bolton’s Macron Stadium with the first date set as Thursday 30th March.
The new SDL Auctions North West date will be added to the network’s already 30-strong UK-wide auction calendar which also includes venues in Chester, Derby, Birmingham, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Stoke.
Rory Daly, auctioneer and CEO at SDL Auctions, said, “It’s a very exciting period of expansion for our auction network. We recently held our first auctions in Chester and Stoke and now we’re adding Bolton to our calendar as part of our strategy for the North West.
“To launch our new auction we have established a strategic auction partnership with leading independent estate agency Miller Metcalfe who will be offering sales by auction in our auction room as an additional service to their customers throughout their 10 offices in the North West.”
John Fletcher, MD at Miller Metcalfe, said, “We have held auctions covering Lancashire and Greater Manchester for many years and with much success, however this exciting new partnership allows us to significantly grow our auction presence. In addition, as SDL Auctions is one of the biggest commercial property auction houses in the UK we’ll now also be able to offer better quality and higher value commercial properties for sale by auction.
“By combining the national reach and expertise of SDL Auctions with the regional knowledge and reputation of Miller Metcalfe in the North West we aim to create a highly successful auction proposition.”
SDL Auctions is also in discussions to partner with several other estate agents across the North West in order to allow more agents to offer sales by auction alongside traditional private treaty sales.
