Dreweatts collaborates with CoreLogic UK to develop a 21st century auction viewing experience to help solve current challenges.
We have now launched our new Dreweatts 360 Virtual Auction Tours - just in time for the return of our online sales this month, which start with our Fine Furniture, Sculpture, Carpets and Ceramics auction on Tuesday 19 May 2020.

Together with CoreLogic UK, a leading developer of technological solutions in the property industry, we will now be providing an exciting and immersive new way to view auction lots before sale.
The new service will provide virtual tours that allow you to enter the front doors of Donnington Priory and take a walk-through tour of the lots showcased in our salerooms as if you were here in person. All from the comfort of your own home, at your own pace and at a time that suits you - especially practical under current circumstances.
Jonathan Pratt, Dreweatts Managing Director, comments “Auctioneering is one of the oldest professions and the virtual world is one of the newest technologies. To meet the new challenges facing us in today’s world, Dreweatts are combining the two to create a buying experience that is truly 21st century. Dreweatts 360 virtual auction tours from CoreLogic will allow you to walk through the galleries at our picturesque Donnington Priory, browsing and interacting with the lots as you go.
Alongside our specialists' advice, online lot listing and page turning e-catalogue, we hope the Dreweatts 360 experience will bring sourcing art and antiques from auctions to life in a safe and engaging way and help our clients, near and far, to imagine easily how pieces they see in our roomsets will transfer beautifully to their own home.”
CoreLogic UK have been operating since 2002, primarily developing solutions within the property services industry, with their Virtual Tours service having been mostly used within the Residential Estate Agency world. However, recognising how flexible their service can be as a tool to enhance other markets, they were delighted when Dreweatts agreed to work with them to develop their first auction house solution and collaboration.
Stewart Mcrae, Corelogic's Sales Director, states “Since the launch of CoreLogic’s virtual tours service to the UK Residential Estate Agency market last year, we’ve had an incredible response from businesses looking for next level property marketing.
Dreweatts are the first auction house to partner with us and we are delighted to be working with them. It’s situations like we face today, where 3D virtual walk-through tours have a recognised place to keep businesses trading. CoreLogic’s virtual tours will enable Dreweatts to showcase their auction collections online with a truly immersive and engaging digital experience, allowing customers to view auction collections up close, from anywhere.”
