2020 – What a Year

Waddington’s celebrates our 170th birthday this year. We have reached this milestone by being fiscally responsible, respecting the needs of our clients, observing the market, and taking care of our staff. These qualities have been foundation of our success, even at this unprecedented time.

While it is still not clear what the next several months will really look like, we are starting to imagine what the remainder of the 2020 auction season could be.  We’ve all learned to be flexible and to adapt to new ways of doing business. Our online auction capability is a core strength for our business and we are excited to find new ways to leverage its potential. We’ll keep you posted every step of the way.

Thank You!
