What we do
Operating online since 2002 we now run 4 online marketplaces covering 12 verticals within our Art & Antiques and Industrial & Commercial divisions.
We are bringing our bidders 13,000 auctions a year within an infrastructure that allows secure transactions, easy bidding and comprehensive searching to ensure no opportunity is ever missed.
In doing so, we support our network of more than 1350 auctioneers who vet the quality, estimate the value and ensure professional handling of each item.
Hosting over 5,000 auctions a year, listing 3.5m lots the-saleroom.com holds anything from kitchen tables to Dodo skeletons, Picassos to antiquities, autographs to Diana’s dresses, ‘mantiques’ to teddy bears or classic car or coins.
We cater to anyone, from casual private buyers, to luxury designers or professional art buyers, dedicated collectors or high-end dealers. So whether you’re looking to spend £100 on an out of the ordinary gift or commit considerably more on an exquisite Corbusier coffee table, the-saleroom.com will help you browse, find, bid, win and transport your item.
Transacting directly with the auctioneer through our platform means you are buying at or below trade prices and with all the convenience of online retail shopping. You may browse vast stock and who knows, you may find a hidden gem.
Since 1971 Antiques Trade Gazette, has been the industry bible, providing auctioneers, dealers and collectors with market insight. The Auction Technology Group has been built on an unparalleled foundation of expertise that enables us to provide the best possible services to bidders and auctioneers alike.
The Industrial & Commercial division facilitates the sale of any asset type grouped in 6 key verticals: Consumer goods, industrial machinery, plant machinery and agriculture, cars and commercial vehicles, commercial surplus and insolvency. We run 8,000 auctions per year in this division, listing 4m lots.
Having established our expertise in building auction technology platforms with the-saleroom.com, in 2007 we expanded our portfolio and launched i-bidder.com, pioneering online auctions for the Industrial and Commercial sectors in the UK. Following an acquisition in 2013, Seattle-based BidSpotter.com was added to the group, thereby expanding our reach across the Atlantic and into the US market.
We are proud to be known as auction industry experts with an in-depth knowledge of building successful auction platforms connecting auctioneers with 5 million unique users representing every industry.
We strive to make the Industrial and Commercial division of ATG the single online destination for the procurement of used commercial assets via online auction.
