Haddon & James Commercial Auctioneers Mission Statement
"We provide a competitive professional Buying Environment that facilitates the Efficient Disposal of quality surplus stocks to large and small Wholesale Buyers through a managed on-line system."
Auctioneering is an art. It has to be practiced, used, defined, re-defined monitored and improved upon. For generations the Auctioneer was the man (usually, but sometimes woman) who held the gavel. Holding that gavel came with huge responsibility and sense of purpose to achieve the seller’s ambition of selling the product/ asset/ chattel/property to the ‘’Best’’ buyer on the day whoever that might be. Nowadays the gavel is electronic and it’s the buyer who is in control more than ever before. The job of the auctioneer is now focussed on providing a great lot (item, asset etc) , to find the potential buyer and to introduce the two in a way that meets the demands of the seller – to sell his lot.
Today Haddon & James focusses on clearing commercial clearance stocks of all kinds from Ipads and Televisions to Saucepans and Bird Houses. In a world of continuous improvement and product development, stock that was produced last week, last month, last year has been superseded by a newer version, a changed packaging, a new supplier, even an EC Regulation (think of vacuum cleaners).
Sometimes these items are end of lease or ex demonstrator, but more often just brand new unsold stock that has to be cleared to allow for new stock. There are many sources of business stocks but far fewer quality supplies so our challenge is to sort the ‘wheat from the chaff’ and present the ‘’Best Stock on the Net’’ to the Buyer.
Of course it doesn’t end when the electronic gavel goes down: From there our work really begins in making sure the goods arrive with their new owner as expeditiously as we can. Our Business is now geared to serving the Buyer to ensure a smooth, seamless transaction with regular updates on picking, packing, shipping and delivery.
