Generations of professionalism


Auctioneering has been a central part of Longstaff's well established practice since it was founded in the eighteenth century, indeed seven generations of the Longstaff family have been auctioneers in Lincolnshire and that tradition continues today with a wide range of auction services provided. These include regular auctions for all property types, farm machinery and agricultural/plant sales and regular antique and furniture auctions held at our specialist auction hall in Spalding. Our auction department is led by five experienced auctioneers, an auction manager and support staff who deal with all elements of the auction service.

Whether it is a residential property, a farm or a commercial property, Longstaff are delighted to advise where a sale by auction is appropriate and through their range of contacts provide a comprehensive service to vendors of all types of property and equipment.
