One of the services we offer is the purchase of tools, machinery and equipment. We deal with clearances from private workshops, garages and Deceased Estates.

A private workshop clearance is usually needed following the death of a family member. It is a daunting task for a relative or Executor of the Will to clear a busy workshop. Maybe you want to sell the property, or simply clear some space. We want to help you avoid tools and equipment going to waste.

In this situation we can help you by either purchasing individual items or by clearing the whole workshop. It is important that you know you are getting the most value for these items, and we can help by explaining each tool’s name, use and approximate market value. We will then provide you with a price based on each item, or for the full clearance including residual items.

If it is your workshop and you are looking to get your affairs in order in the event of your death, you can assign Ostia Tools to undertake the removal of the workshop. In these cases, we would recommend you contact us to inform us that you plan to write it into your Will. It is advised that you inform your next of Kin or Executor of the Will, of you wishes. Providing our company information in the Will can make the liquidation of assets a much simpler task.

Our knowledge of all aspects of wood and metal working makes us the first choice for many people in this situation. If you find you want to compare prices, we will happily point you in the direction of other companies.
