Max Blackmore has 40 years experience in the auction business and is a qualified Chartered Antiques and Arts Surveyor. After working in London and Yorkshire, he moved to Cheshire in 1982, establishing his own company in Wilmslow, holding regular auctions at the local rugby club. The auctions proved very popular and successful.
Tom Blackmore joined his father in the firm 3 years ago. He is the saleroom manager and oversees incoming lots and photography.
Andrew McCann also has many years experience in the art and antiques business and oversees our popular Collectors’ Sales, in particular books, coins, stamps and ephemera.
Maxwells took the opportunity of acquiring their own permanent saleroom in Levens Road, Hazel Grove which provide a more efficient service to both vendors and buyers alike. The saleroom is easily accessible from all areas – it is close to motorway -M60 & M56 – and rail networks and has a good car park.
Maxwells are a local family firm and are able to tailor their service to meet their clients’ requirements. They are helped by an excellent team of friendly staff. If you have never been to an auction before or are not sure what is involved entering items into an auction, they will be pleased to help and offer guidance.
Maxwells are regular hosts of ‘David Dickinson’s Real Deal’ TV programme and also ‘Celebrity Antiques Road Trip’.
