Wilsons Auctions’ Unreserved Government Auction takes place fortnightly, with a range of luxury and designer items going to the highest bidder at the fall of the gavel.

These items have been seized from criminals by our police force and government agency clients across the UK, Ireland and worldwide. Wilsons Auctions is proud of the work it carries out in relation to its government asset recovery work, which has seen it responsible for returning over £100 million back into the public purse in recent years. These auctions are available to online bidders through our LiveBid auction facility.
