What’s On has all you need to know about The Auction House Dubai, its opening times in Al Quoz, how to buy at auction, what to sell and contact details.

After streamlining down to a few suitcases to move to a new country, it’s amazing how quickly expats can accumulate unwanted stuff. 

If you’re rapidly running out of storage space, brand new service The Auction House Dubai could come in handy. It auctions off pre-owned household items every Friday and Saturday at Al Quoz HQ, holding one sale at 9am for goods valued under Dhs1,000 – anything from kitchen appliances to second-hand bookshelves – and a second at 2.30pm for goods over Dhs1,000 – think sofas and widescreen TVs.
