Wilsons Auctions is preparing for its monthly Unreserved Government Auction with a selection of luxury items going under the hammer with no reserve on Thursday 31st May.
The popular auction, which is available to online bidders, will feature some 'head-turning' items including a monster-truck style Hummer, an Audi RS6, a variety of high-value watches from Rolex, Audemars Piguet, Breitling and Cartier as well as designer shoes from Gucci, Just Cavalli, Moschino and Christian Louboutin.
Wilsons Auctions recently hit the small screen having featured in the second series of BBC One's documentary, Ill Gotten Gains which reached 1.4 million viewers daily. The programme, which can currently be viewed on the BBC iPlayer, is a great insight into the role the auction company plays, helping various government bodies and law enforcement agencies realise criminal's ill gotten gains through its monthly Unreserved Government Auctions.

We are proud to facilitate these auctions across the group, which are proving more and more popular each month. This is a great opportunity to purchase quality goods for an affordable price so we would advise customers to register ahead of the auction on 31st May," he added.
