We at Eric Distin have been in the business for 50 years, and have gained a wealth of experience in auctioneering, property surveying, valuing and also estate agency. Our expert knowledge of the local market is second to none, we can provide our buyers and sellers with a truly unique service. As a registered valuer, we are able to not only carry out property valuations and surveys for community homes and other housing associations in Plymouth, but our friendly and professional team also specialise in household clearances and antique auctions. We hold auctions/sales days quite regularly where we showcase and sell a wide range of high-quality items and rare collectables such as antiques, coins, fine art, furniture, books and jewellery. In addition to holding antique auctions, we also sell properties located in and around Devon and Cornwall too.

The wide range of services we provide include:

Our regular auctions are normally held on Saturdays, where viewing starts at 9.00 am, and sales set to begin at 10.30 am. Our auctions are held in a modern auction room based in Callington, Cornwall.

We are specialists in clearing properties and entering items we find of value up for auction. Being based in Callington, we are able to extend our services to those across Devon and Cornwall. All types of house clearances are undertaken so there is no need to look elsewhere. We completely understand that everyone has their own needs and requirements, that is why our expertise and professional experience can be of great benefit to you. We ensure that you are completely at ease and comfort whilst the property is being cleared and then we will valuate the items you would like to take into auction.
