Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Government Auctions UK Network of websites (now know as GAUK, pronounced ‘gawk’ and meaning simply ‘to find it cheaper’). GAUK originally featured only auction houses that deal in Government auctions (hence the name) but has grown to cover every auction in the UK.
You’ve found easily the largest, most comprehensive auction directory and auction event alert service of its kind in Britain … GUARANTEED.
The place to track down and be alerted to all the fantastic items being sold right now at prices that would often seem, well frankly absurd!
We all know that auctions are the best place to bag a great deal but with some 1500 auction houses spread from Land’s End to John O’Groats holding up to 8,000 auctions a month, keeping track can be a veritable pain in the butt!
Even in this age of technology, many auctioneers websites are not all that flash and the critical information you want can be very hard to find … we know because we visit them each month.
Well there’s good news for once!
Since 1999 the nice people at GAUK have spent thousands upon thousands of man-hours honing our service and developing the most comprehensive global auction directory and auction events calendar in the UK.
Did you know that there are literally hundreds of well organised, reputable auction houses selling absolutely anything you can imagine, all over Britain right now? … And you’ve probably never heard of most of them!
As Britain is slowly released from the grip of a deep and awful recession there’s good news. There’s more and more items going to auction and you can cash in!
Thousands upon thousands of auction lots flow through the country’s auction houses on a daily basis and come from many different sources … and Government Auctions UK list probably every event!
GAUK Auctions Event Calendar is not only a monster in size, it is also beautiful to use featuring just about every event we can find in the UK, happening right now in a simple, intuitive layout.
Sure, there are a couple of very good ‘specialist’ websites out there but they are ‘specialist’ and only cater for a niche such as antiques. Then at the other end of the spectrum there are a multitude of resources ‘claiming’ to publish auction directories and the like, but in reality this is old, outdated, rehashed misinformation that’s been doing the rounds on the internet and eBay for years … most of it nicked from GAUK!
GAUK has been providing quality information since 1999 and are we are constantly updating.
We’ve been copied, plundered and blatantly had our websites hacked and reproduced in a vain attempt to copy what we do.
BUT … the cold, hard truth is that it takes the participation of auctioneers, a large team of data-input staff, some very sophisticated, proprietary software, a bunch of very expensive, dedicated servers, a number of technical guys and a rather large budget to keep GAUK running!
And we even strive to keep GAUK searches advert free! Yes … a quite, tranquil retreat with none of those annoying, flashing images spoiling the enjoyment of bargain hunting.
You simply cannot find the GAUK information anywhere else in one place and by using GAUK services you enjoy the convenience of having all of it at your fingertips.
Take auctioneers – The full, unlimited service at Government Auctions details over 1500 auctioneers. That’s approximately 8,000 auctions a month, and HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF ITEMS COMING UP AT AUCTION RIGHT ACROSS THE COUNTRY, and a huge selection are uploaded to into a single, easy to search, save and compare database. (see this in action with every car at auction at GAUK Motors)
So why don’t I find this stuff by doing a Google?
Well the fact is that you could probably find a small number auction house websites after a few minutes of searching IF, (and it’s a big if), you know exactly what you’re looking for, you know what the auction house is called, where it’s located and what they specialise in.
That said, you then need to search through each website and find the information you’re looking for, if they publish it online (which many don’t). You would need to spend time to find the auction events, the catalogues, the times and dates and then cross-reference them and save them somehow … Now imagine trying to do that for nearly 1500 auctioneers … you couldn’t because it’s just a plain old fact that over 95% of these auction houses won’t come up on the first ten pages of a Google search.
That’s some 1500+ auctions that just won’t be found on a simple Google search, eBay or Amazon … Why?
We have thousands of enquiries a week from people just like YOU who are interested in what’s being sold across the country at auctions right now … We’ll help you ensure you know exactly what’s coming up at those sales, where they are and when.
GAUK websites are run specifically for dedicated bargain hunters!
They are the first place people come to when looking for a steal. Whether it’s cars or vans, property or investment land, computers or software, linen or silk – it’s all being sold right now somewhere in the UK.
We have developed a revolutionary system that will enable you to receive the most up-to-date, relevant information about the very latest up-coming sales.
It’s reassuring to know that we have been running GAUK Network websites, worldwide since 1999. Although the website name suggests that we deal mainly with government auctions, which we do comprehensively, GAUK has grown into a much bigger beast and now we cover the whole spectrum of sales.
Government Auctions UK, was originally published as ‘an experiment’, a place from where you could enter the ‘secretive’ world of Government and Police Auctions. There were no sophisticated features like now yet it contained everything someone needed to track down No Reserve auctions.
The Government Auctions website took on a life of its own, growing organically through search engine exposure and by word of mouth. It was this demand that drove the site development towards something much more comprehensive and what you see today.
At present you probably hear about sales by word of mouth, by reading an advert, or by requesting a catalogue from an auction you know is about to be held.
MY GAUK: Once you track down those elusive auction lots save them to My GAUK … Here you can keep track of hundreds of items from across a range of auction houses across the length of Britain.
An exciting innovation introduced by GAUK Auctions is that auction houses across the entire country have secure access to their details from any computer allowing them to edit listings and publish their news, ensuring you get up-to-the-minute information.
This unique system ensures our users have the most up-to-date, reliable information available.
With GAUK Auctions, you’ll never miss an event again. The powerful, searchable database can be queried for, either something specific, or an auction in a defined area. If you’re looking for, let’s say property, or computers then filter this into our search facility and those auctions dealing with those items will appear. If you want to find all sales in a specific area then simply choose the county of interest and Hey Presto! they are listed.
Many auction houses post a complete catalogue of lots with a description of what’s being sold, and if they have a web presence already then we provide a link from their listing at GAUK Auctions to their site. If they use a Bid Online service we will link to that service also.
GAUK Auctions site is extremely easy to navigate and simple to use. Clients keep coming back to us because we offer sound, up-to-date information … GAUK Auctions websites are fast becoming the definitive bible for all those looking for a great deal, the first point of contact, the ‘Bible’ of the auction world.
Instead of having to ‘discover’ the latest sale information by waiting for the advert, or by calling in, or faxing (do people still do that?), or by requesting a catalogue (some of which can cost as much as £40), or by searching the net … people simply save the headache, a huge amount of time and expense … and use GAUK!
We strive to deliver the very best auction alert service out there and our goal is 100% coverage of every event across every county in the UK and Ireland, with Europe and even the good old USA coming on board. This is a massive ask and although we don’t always get it completely right, we do a darn good job!
Each and every listing is regularly checked for accuracy – we have checked the links and auction information and even worked with the auctioneers to verify that all is as it should be. If an auctioneer’s website is not up to standard or out of date we simply do not list it!
The GAUK Auctions database is now the ‘definitive’ source for correct information AND IS ACCURATE.
All GAUK Auctions information has been manually checked and verified BY A HUMAN!
So we’re delighted with the results and we hope you will be too … Nothing remotely comes close to the quality and quantity of information we provide…
And rest assured that we’re not resting on our laurels! There’s an intensive programming schedule underway and we’re relentlessly striving to improve with up to 30% of income being reinvested into the site.
