Our client base is more diverse than just the Veterinary and human medical markets however, and we have been regularly called upon by the television and motion picture industry to act in an advisory capacity and supply equipment for use in their productions, from mainstream Hollywood / British movies, to BBC dramas and even Video Game launch events!


We are also proud to hold the title of 'NHS Approved' for our disposal services to the NHS over the years, which has seen us develop medical auction services and events, both online and physical in an under-represented market.
