A new Westbury business is bringing 21st-century selling methods to the world of antiques.

The Auction Hub helps customers throughout the region to sell their antiques, art, collectables and other quality items online with the support of a team of auction experts and specialist consultants.

It is the first auction house in the country to offer selling via the Auctionet.com portal, which opens up vendors' antiques to a marketplace of 320,000 registered users across Europe.

Founded by James Harvey, the company combines the service and expertise of a traditional auction house with the speed and efficiency of an online platform, selling antique and contemporary items.

James started his career at Phillips Auctioneers, followed by a period working in London and New York for Mallett.

More recently he was the CEO of The Fine Art Auction Group with auction and retail businesses in Berkshire and London. He is now putting his years of experience to further use, helping those wishing to sell quality items to prospective buyers all over the world.

“Westbury is a fantastic location for The Auction Hub, conveniently located for travel throughout the region to allow us to visit customers and offer expert advice on their art and antiques," said James.
