Moving Auctionpax into a fantastic position for the next ten years, a new modern look, with easier navigation, new features including Facebook and Twitter links, our Blog, Prices net – without the VAT and much more. This shows our commitment to you our customers. Same great value service and products – JUST BETTER !!

Vital signs direct / Auctionpax Ltd started life as a part of Auctionpax in 2002 then run from premises in Southport. Very soon the demand for packaging outgrew the space available, and so the company was bought by myself Dave & Jan.( with Jan leaving us during 2008) This coupled with a relocation to Bacup in 2004 meant the company was well positioned for massive expansion and over the last 10 years we have seen a steady increase with many many customers coming back day after day , week after week, A clear sign that we are getting things right! The warehousing and office space is now well over 5,000 square metres and with the employment of extra staff along the way, the company is growing at a very steady pace.

Are you local ? We also have a trade counter / cash & carry section in our warehouse. This is open to the public 10am – 2pm Monday – Friday selling all items available through www.vitalsignsdirect.co.uk straight and direct to you the general public at even more reduced prices than our already great value internet prices, so if you are in the area please call in and see us, ring us on 01706 87 72 72 for directions.
