What we do

As one of the most reputable auction houses in the South Island, handling the majority of its fine art, antiques and jewellery is such a privilege. McCormack and McKellar’s professional and long trusted reputation is why we are requested by leading legal, accounting, insurance and trust companies across the South Island to manage and disperse Estates. Our clients are highly valued and we make selling with us at auction as easy as possible. Our auction rooms have wonderful and entertaining atmosphere and we are committed to achieving the best results. We would love for you to take the time to visit us. You will find us at 78 Peterborough, Christchurch. You are also welcome to call or email us if you have any questions.

How we assess items

Trusting someone to sell your valued items is a big decision, and we understand that. We will assess and value your antiques, collectables, jewellery and artworks independently, or draw on specialised expertise when necessary. We will ensure that your items will be placed in the most appropriate auction so that they will be marketed accordingly to achieve the best results. Please get in touch if you believe we can be of assistance in selling or if you are just wanting some guidance.
