Ashby Auction Co.

About Us

We have been in the Antiques business for 15 years.  Chris Bowles is a Licensed and Bonded Auctioneer (VAAL# 2907004394) with a professional background in Information Technology and Business Systems. Auctions can sometimes feel like an "old boys club" and the environment can sometimes seem intimidating or unapproachable to first time sellers and buyers.  Our hope is to make the Auction method of sales more comfortable for our buyers and sellers. We welcome all customers, be they individual consignors with a single item to sell, business liquidations, special collections, large estates and estate downsizing.

We offer pickup and packing services as a part of most of our auction contracts. We now have DELIVERY and PICKUP resources to recommend to our customers.

Our auction house is located in 9221 Elk Run Rd Catlett, VA 20119. All of our auction previews take place in this location. Many auction purchasers make it a rule not to bid on items unless they can physically inspect them. At Ashby Auctions our previews are all open for multiple days and always span a weekend. This makes it much easier for people to inspect the items in our auctions.  Ashby Auction Company offers flexible pickup times. Like our previews, our pickups are multi-day and always span a weekend. Additionally, WE SHIP ITEMS. We charge a $5.00 handling fee for each shipment plus actual insured shipping cost to the buyer. This expands the universe of buyers willing to participate in our auctions. We look forward to serving you and showing you firsthand what makes us different!
