This was the first time I had taken anything to an auctioneers.
What initially impressed me was Ben’s ability to show a knowledgeable interest and enthusiasm without being at all pushy; this was important to me.
Communication was excellent, all emails and phone calls responded to really promptly, (usually within a matter of hours), and I was kept informed of any developments and how the process worked all the way through.
Although Ben was the expert, I still felt I was given time and allowed to make the decisions once he had informed me of the options available. “Think on it overnight” he would recommend.
We got more than the results we were hoping for and I felt I was in good hands throughout.
I can certainly recommend them and would use the company again.

We used Rogers Jones for an estate valuation of my parent’s possessions. Ben himself visited the property and was very supportive and honest regarding all aspects, including some valuable paintings. We were so impressed that we used them for all sales, including a LS Lowry painting.
We had initially envisaged selling this and some other well-known artist’s paintings through one of the big national auction houses, however Ben’s personal approach was far more to our liking, and he was able to achieve sale prices which exceeded all our expectations.
I would like to thank you for a successful auction of my late father’s medals. We followed it online and couldn’t believe some of the prices achieved. Again, thanks for your professionalism and work during this process.
I have often used Rogers Jones Cardiff salerooms since their arrival in Cardiff and have absolutely no hesitation recommending them for both the buying and selling of antiques, fine arts. They provide a friendly, efficient service and at all levels of the company are always most helpful.
Their regular Welsh sales are an unmissable event for all who are interested in Welsh antiques, paintings and Welsh pottery and porcelain where the scope and range of items offered are not bettered anywhere
Following recommendations, and acting as Executor of an estate, I have used the services of Rogers Jones & Co. of Colwyn Bay for Probate valuations and subsequently for two auction sales at their Cardiff Saleroom. I found their expert advice invaluable and was thankful for the honest and professional guidance received throughout the process.
The beneficiaries were impressed with the presentation of lots in the catalogues and delighted with the outcome of the sales. They have requested that I thank all concerned and I should also like to extend my personal thanks to the staff at both the Colwyn Bay and Cardiff offices.
I have watched online today’s auction. The results look excellent. I thank you again for all your efforts on my behalf and I am very pleased that I decided to consign the collection of pietra-dura to Rogers Jones & Co. Your estimates, photography and lotting greatly assisted the final sales.
I just wanted to let you know that John Lammin and his family (West Wales hauliers) were so helpful to us in clearing our Aunts house in Swansea. They were so hard working and professional, but also so friendly and helpful making the whole process simple. Working very hard to clear the house within two days. Thank you for your recommendation.
It certainly was a day to remember! I was amazed and thrilled with the results. I hope the collectors are equally delighted with their new medals and will treasure them. I was very pleased with all the results and very much surprised that the small collection of Pembrokeshire Yeomanry items were so well received.
Thank you very much for the time and effort you went to and the professional display of all the items in the catalogue. It was a pleasure to have you come to the house to look at the items in the beginning. Perhaps I’d better go back up into the attic, just in case I’ve missed anything!
My sincere thanks to Charles Hampshire and all the staff at Rogers Jones & Co for the courtesy and professionalism shown in a recent highly effective on-line auction of my painting.
I appointed Ben Rogers Jones of Rogers Jones & Co to sell my father’s precious rugby collection from his playing days with Wales and Llanelli. I was impressed by Ben’s detailed research and cataloguing and the overall professionalism and effort that he put into the entire service. It was proof that Cardiff is a capital for selling rugby antiques as well as the sport itself.
I would like to say a heartfelt thanks for all Stephen’s hard work and support, you really did go the extra mile with your background research (contacting French auction houses etc). It was a difficult time losing my Dad and selling his car mascot collection, but you have done him proud. Thank you! I have no hesitation in recommending your services to others.
Charles and the team at Rogers Jones have been very helpful in assisting us and our clients dealing with possessions for estates. Charles has always answered queries and assisted in a timely manner and with professionalism.
We use Rogers Jones & Co for all auctioneer work and in particular Charles who works from the Carmarthen branch. We have found them very professional, speedy and knowledgeable.
Charles, we thought the sale was fantastic! Thank you so much for all your efforts. We are so happy the story-telling paddles are going to St Fagans Museum, it just seems right, and what a fantastic price for them!
I’m also really happy with the price for the Timor watch, it’s great to see it go to someone who will appreciate it.
Rogers Jones have undertaken a number of contents valuations and sales on our behalf as part of our Administration of Estates service, ranging from standard household contents, to high end antique and specialist items. We have always found them to be very professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. A quality service is always delivered.
Mr David Rogers Jones contacted me last Friday to ask if I could re send my note of appreciation to you for inclusion in your website. Unfortunately I cannot find the original but I send you the following.
I would like to thank Mr David Rogers Jones and all the staff in the company that dealt with the auction sales in Colwyn Bay and Cardiff . I really appreciated the sensitivity and kindness shown to me at a very difficult time , and the respect and knowledge regarding all the items that were included in the auctions. The whole process was amazingly efficient and trouble free . Highly recommend.
Hoffwn ddiolch I Mr David Rogers Jones a holl staff y cwmni oedd yn ymwneud a'r gwerthiant yn yr ocsiynau ym Mae Colwyn a Chaerdydd. Yr oeddwn wedi gwerthfawrogi yn fawr y ffordd sensitif a charedig y deliwyd gyda mi ar amser anodd iawn ,a'r dull wybodus a pharchus wrth ymdrin a'r holl eitemau .Yr oedd y broses yn effeithiol iawn a didrafferth. Cymeradwyo yn fawr.
It was fascinating to watch online as I've never seen an auction. Please pass our thanks on to Charles & Ben, they must have been exhausted. We were particularly pleased with surprise amounts for the refectory table and some of the jewellery lots.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Charles and to use Rogers Jones again in the future. I felt that Rogers Jones are a very trustworthy company and maintained a high level of professionalism whilst also being extremely approachable and a pleasure to deal with.
From the moment David Rogers Jones stepped into the property, it was obvious to us that “he knew his stuff”. Trying to dispose of a distant relatives property and belongings from 300 miles away was very challenging but you made it easy for us. Much praise and thanks are also due to David of White's Removals. Your team put our minds at rest, got on with the job and delivered what you undertook to do. We can’t thank you enough.
