Incredible Auction Bargains They Don’t Want You to Find … What, Why, Where and When!
We all know that auctions are the best place to bag a great deal but with some 1500 auction houses spread from Land’s End to John O’Groats holding up to 8,000 auctions a month, keeping track can be a veritable pain in the butt!
Even in this age of technology, many auctioneers websites are not all that flash and the critical information you want can be very hard to find … we know because we visit them each month.
Well there’s good news for once!
Since 1999 the nice people at GAUK have spent thousands upon thousands of man-hours honing our service and developing the most comprehensive global auction directory and auction events calendar in the UK.
Did you know that there are literally hundreds of well organised, reputable auction houses selling absolutely anything you can imagine, all over Britain right now? …And you’ve probably never heard of most of them!
We’re talking: Cars, Property, Bankrupt Stock, Proceeds of Crime, Seized Items, Overstock, Liquidated Assets … Anything from Antiques to Battleships … Diggers to iPods … Mobile phones to Turkeys at Christmas …anything you can imagine is being sold right now as you’re reading this.
As Britain is slowly released from the grip of a deep and awful recession there’s good news. There’s more and more items going to auction and you can cash in!
Thousands upon thousands of auction lots flow through the country’s auction houses on a daily basis and come from many different sources …and Government Auctions UK list probably every event!

GAUK Auctions Event Calendar is not only a monster in size, it is also beautiful to use featuring just about every event we can find in the UK, happening right now in a simple, intuitive layout.
Sure, there are a couple of very good ‘specialist’ websites out there but they are ‘specialist’ and only cater for a niche such as antiques. Then at the other end of the spectrum there are a multitude of resources ‘claiming’ to publish auction directories and the like, but in reality this is old, outdated, rehashed misinformation that’s been doing the rounds on the internet and eBay for years … most of it nicked from GAUK!
GAUK has been providing quality information since 1999 and are we are constantly updating.
We’ve been copied, plundered and blatantly had our websites hacked and reproduced in a vain attempt to copy what we do.
BUT… the cold, hard truth is that it takes the participation of auctioneers, a large team of data-input staff, some very sophisticated, proprietary software, a bunch of very expensive, dedicated servers, a number of technical guys and a rather large budget to keep GAUK running!
And we even strive to keep GAUK searches advert free! Yes … a quite, tranquil retreat with none of those annoying, flashing images spoiling the enjoyment of bargain hunting.
You simply cannot find the GAUK information anywhere else in one place and by using GAUK services you enjoy the convenience of having all of it at your fingertips.
Take auctioneers – The full, unlimited service at Government Auctions details over 1500 auctioneers. That’s approximately 8,000 auctions a month, and HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF ITEMS COMING UP AT AUCTION RIGHT ACROSS THE COUNTRY, and a huge selection are uploaded to into a single, easy to search, save and compare database. (see this in action with every car at auction at GAUK Motors)
So why don’t I find this stuff by doing a Google?
Well the fact is that you could probably find a small number auction house websites after a few minutes of searching IF, (and it’s a big if),you know exactly what you’re looking for, you know what the auction house is called, where it’s located and what they specialise in.
That said, you then need to search through each website and find the information you’re looking for, if they publish it online (which many don’t). You would need to spend time to find the auction events, the catalogues, the times and dates and then cross-reference them and save them somehow … Now imagine trying to do that for nearly 1500 auctioneers … you couldn’t because it’s just a plain old fact that over 95% of these auction houses won’t come up on the first ten pages of a Google search.
That’s some 1500+ auctions that just won’t be found on a simple Google search, eBay or Amazon …Why?
- Auctioneers are not geared up for optimizing their websites for search engines so a Google search on ‘auctions’ for instance, brings up all sorts of results, much of it irrelevant rubbish! (Try it!)
- Google isn’t like GAUK because we are a ‘Specialist Auction Engine’ and our information is handled manually by ‘humans’.
- Auctioneers do not list on eBay because the fees are prohibitive
- Many auctioneers do not advertise in traditional press because the costs are prohibitive
- And they certainly don’t list on Amazon because there is not that facility
