Lots from across the UK, buyers from across the globe

Gateway Auctions is a UK auction site based in Lancashire, in the heart of the North West. Our sales lots come from across the UK and attract buyers all over the globe, drawn to us by the strong reputation we have developed and nurtured over the years.

We operate in a sector that requires a level of trust, honesty and professionalism, and our team delivers every time. Solid relationships have been cultivated with construction companies and our other clients, as well as the buyers who come back to us time and again.

A great source of pride for us is the site that became our home in 2017. With eight acres of external storage, 25,000 sq/ft of modern warehouse space and a state-of-the-art office block, our auction site fills us with pride at what we have achieved since our foundation. A great deal of planning and hard work went into designing our home to come up with the most effective way of storing and disposing with the broad spectrum of assets we sell and we are proud of the results.

We would love to welcome you for a guided tour, whether you are interested in a particular lot we have on offer or you are just keen to see what we are all about.

“Sunbelt Rentals have been working with Gateway Auctions since 2003. During this time, they have assisted us with many challenges that can arise with the disposal of large volumes of fleet and machinery. David and the team at Gateway always go above and beyond to get the job done, leaving us confident that we and our assets are in safe hands. We have always found their prompt service, honesty, integrity and, importantly, the values attained for assets of the highest standards.”

Wayne Edwards, Remarketing Manager Sunbelt Rentals UK (formerly A-Plant)

“Gateway’s commercial-minded approach to values, and to realising those values, is a breath of fresh air in what can sometimes be a very old-fashioned and depressed view of asset values. We use the business extensively as our valuation and auctioneering agents and I have known David Sunderland for a number of years. We have built up a level of trust and confidence in the way they work, which is paramount in this industry. More recently Gateway has been buying and underwriting assets for remarketing themselves, which shows the confidence they have in their ability to achieve quality values.”

Charles, Insolvency Practitioner

“One of the best things about Gateway is its eight-acre site where assets can be stored free of charge. Add to this their ability to collect assets from across the UK at a moment’s notice, and then realise the best values – why would I use anyone else?”

James Miller, Collections Manager, Bibby Leasing
