Welcome to Badgers Auctions Ltd, the newly established Auction House in Piddington, High Wycombe.
The Story so far
We are the Badgers: Craig, Rob and Roger.
We are long-time friends Craig (left) and Rob (middle). We took a good look at our lives during Covid-19, evaluating our passions, strengths and expertise. With the support of our families and friends we gathered together financial and practical resources to establish “Badgers Auctions Ltd”, an auction house with a mission to focus on a friendly-friendly fun atmosphere, be accessible to all abilities, a Day Out destination and experience for novices and pro’s alike. We are promoting a strong environmental ethos for re-use and up-cycling, discovering the value in good quality lot items.
Craig has a background working in the retail and automotive industries and has worked for manufacturers such as BMW, Volkswagen and Peugeot, it is therefore no surprise that his interests and hobbies are closely associated to motorsports and he enjoys competing in amateur racing at various track days. Craig also has a passion for collectibles and computer gaming so if he is not zooming around a racetrack you will most likely find him at a computer desk!
Robert, a close friend of Craig, and started his career working in retail before becoming self established as a successful eBay trader. Robert has an interest in computer gaming and vintage collectibles (which has turned his home into a small warehouse!) Robert has a wealth of experience with anything auction related so be sure to look out for our hints and tips section where he will add some information on skills and techniques he has acquired over the years.
