Wow!.. that has to be the best condition report I have ever received,, thank you very much for the detail.

Thanks for registering me this morning for Thursday’s sale, and for putting me in touch with Mark Wise. As mentioned, I told him how appreciative I was with the quality of his condition reports, and the overall top-rate service approach by Mitchells

Just a quick note to thank you for the excellent service and quick delivery.
All as described and I’m a very ‘Happy Bunny’.

It is very refreshing to find auctioneers who are willing to pack and post to buyers and I am most grateful for the service. Please pass on my thanks to your packing team. Every item was individually wrapped with care, and then posted at a sensible price.

I wish to thank you very sincerely for packing my item so supremely well (Lot 1175, Mahogany Balloon Clock). It arrived safely today and is absolutely fine, in pristine condition. It has been a pleasure to buy from you from the outset. You supplied an excellent array of clear photographs and it was marvellous to receive my item in expedite fashion, professionally packed and safely delivered via Cumbria Express and Tuffnells. It really was a total auction service at its best. I’m very grateful for your excellent attention throughout.

Yours sincerely,
Walter Beardsley.

“Thank you very much.  This is easily the best condition report I have seen.
It really gives me an excellent idea of the actual condition, plus the photos are good too.  I wish all auction houses were as diligent.”

“I wanted to let you know how delighted and impressed I am with your service.  I left an absentee bid a good deal higher then the purchase price so that was very satisfactory.  All of you staff that I deal with were extremely helpful and business like and are a credit to Mitchells.  To get my purchase delivered so soon after the sale if amazing”.
