The Radiophile Auction Service
The Radiophile organises several vintage radio auctions every year. These offer a valuable service to all involved with vintage radio.
We are keen to hear from all sorts of sellers, whether they are collectors looking to thin down their collection, or those who may be responsible for re-homing a collection of wireless items following a bereavement.
Radiophile Auctions are generally held at Gnosall and Cowbit. Details of forthcoming auctions can be obtained from Chas. Miller directly, on 01785 284696 during normal office hours Mon-Fri - or use the 'Contact Us' form on the website. Dealers may also book stalls in the same way.
Radiophile Auctions are run by a trusty band of volunteers, so it is not generally possible to get involved with storing lots before the auction or transporting them to the venue. On the other hand, if you can enlist the help of a man with a van and get the lots to the venue the day before the sale, a Radiophile Auction gives you a pain-free and practical way to re-home even large quantities of vintage wireless equipment.
