Traditionally onsite home contents auctions were a product of necessity, however more recently their popularity is increasing as a lifestyle choice. For example, many clients who are downsizing or redecorating opt to auction the entire contents of their homes rather than facing the trouble of moving or storing their pieces.

Home contents auctions are beneficial for both buyers and sellers. Buyers enjoy the opportunity to view items in a home setting rather than a public gallery and gain first-hand knowledge of the provenance of the pieces. The obvious benefit to sellers is avoiding the costs, risks, and effort of transporting their items to the saleroom, as well as a heightened interest from buyers in collections sold at fine locations. Lawsons live home contents sales are often held on weekends, attracting additional members of the public who are outside the traditional auction room attendees.

More often than not we are able to offer an auction of the contents as a timed online sale utilising our streamlined bidding platform. The digital catalogue is interactive and bidding continues throughout the marketing phase. We are happy to tailor a solution to your specific needs. Please contact Shauna Farren-Price 0413 800 110 | [email protected].


It’s as simple as it sounds. The realisation that you have spent three quarters of your life building a very ornate nest. A worthy achievement, both useful and beautiful, full of memory tokens and must-haves. Then there’s the over-spill, the hidden cupboards, the storage rooms – all testament to the urge to feather the nest. Time to stop, take stock, reverse, divest. The kids don’t want it, they also don’t want to deal with it. Are you ready for a life cleanse?
