Mrs Betty Bunce

The family could not be happier with the on site auction you recently conducted at Vaucluse for Mum. It was a stressful time for her and you Colleen and the team were most respectful and accommodating. You were professional in every aspect of our dealings, honoured all your commitments and achieved better than expected prices on the day. What more could we ask for!

Dear Colin & Colleen   June 2016

Just like to place on record how happy the family was with the outcome of the Stevens sale. You all put a lot of hard work in and took the burden from our shoulders. Value is not always indicative of effort but we know  a lot of research went into our consignment and we were more than happy with the results so thank you once again.

Best wishes to you all for the future

Philip, Peter and Michele.

PS Nice bunch of people you and Colleen have there as well.

The staff in Vicker's & Hoad are very helpful. We organize the freight service for them every week. Everyone over there are very nice to our courier. And the clients are receiving the top service. I will recommend Vicker's & Hoad auction house to all my friends.

Vickers and Hoad isn't an auction house - it's an addiction.Excellent staff, first rate service - amazing finds, fabulous opportunities.My husband and I have filled our house with unique Vickers and Hoad finds and more than that, we have come to realise just how wonderful and professional the Vickers and Hoad team is - second to none.Vickers and Hoad is without doubt the best Antique Auction House in Sydney - I can't rate it highly enough.Jennine Leonarder-Collins

You are exceptional. Congratulations - the owners of The Hermitage must be very relieved. Firstly, they chose an exceptional auction company, Secondly, they achieved incredible results. You worked hard to get me to drive there and it was worth it! I paid 3 times more than I thought I would, however I am thrilled. Please let them know that their family's treasures will be equally treasured by our family. Love your work.

I would like to thank Colin and Colleen Vickers and their Vickers and Hoad team, for the house contents auction they conducted for the Scobie family, at The Hermitage, Maitland on April 27 2014.

Colin's knowledge of the value of the items we had for sale, from the Australian Colonial antique furniture through to the small collectable items, was extensive. We felt very confident in placing our trust in him.

His advertising was thorough and we had very large crowds for the viewings prior to the auction and for the auction itself.

At all times our family was treated with kindness and consideration by his team.

We are extremely grateful we chose Vickers and Hoad to conduct this auction and would highly recommend them.

Dear Colin,

I most definitely would be very pleased to give my permission for such a sterling job you did for me during my traumatic move.I found that both you and Colleen were not only truly professional in your approach - but the empathy you showed was very much appreciated.

Many people in my position are already dealing with some form of grief - and the mere fact of selling up the family home can be quite devastating.

Hence, your kind and considerate approach was most appreciated.

Have a great Christmas.

Vicki Brown - Wallalong House Contents Auction

To Colin, Colleen and Staff.

InOctober 2015, Vickers and Hoad took on the enormous task of holding an onsite auction of the entire contents of the beautiful and historic Wallalong House. From the initial consultation to the last item removed, the whole process ran like a well-oiled machine, efficient, organized, with helpful, friendly and courteous staff.

The thing I liked the most was the whole process was done without any stuffiness,which created a relaxed and informal environment. Auction day was an exciting one, achieving good results, and a day I will always remember.

Thank you all for a job well done.
