THE BOOT SALE DEALERS
TRY TO KEEP A SECRET!
Battersea Boot is a well established, incredibly busy, Sunday afternoon boot sale. We open every Sunday, pretty much all year round (we publish any holiday dates well in advance) We provide a unique level of service at Battersea, operating a unique pre-booking system which guarantees a space will be available once booked and completely removes the need to waste hours of your time in a queue hoping to get a space! If you consider your time to be as good as money, then Battersea is the place for you!
All our pitches are time slot allocated and guaranteed to be held should you arrive later than planned. You do not need to queue up for ANY of our vehicle pitches at Battersea, there is no ‘first come, first served’ aspect. All of our time slots are your earliest entry time, you may arrive later if you wish, we will hold a space for you.
Battersea is not the cheapest boot sale to attend, but you get what you pay for! It is incredibly busy, professionally and efficiently organised and you will not be required to waste any of your time (or petrol) waiting in queues to be parked.
When you arrive at your chosen time, you will be parked up and ready to start trading within minutes of arriving onsite. We are known for our huge footfall – ‘Dealers’ turn out in their hundreds every week, with general public buyer numbers going into thousands.
We also offer our sellers the option of a ‘premium’ pitch. Premium pitches cost more since they allow entry to the site to set up in peace at least 30 minutes before any buyers are allowed in. No one is allowed to look around and buy at this time and you will not be ‘hassled’ by anyone whilst you’re trying to set up pitch. Our 11.30am £30 pitch is the most popular pitch we offer and is very often the first to sell out.
Due to such high demand we only accept bookings one week in advance. Bookings currently go ‘live’ at 8am every Monday morning to book for the coming Sunday. We strongly advise all sellers to read our terms before they book a pitch.
Car Pitch Info
Car pitch prices start at £25 for 12pm arrival. There will be buyers onsite already when you arrive.
Our premium pitches allow entry to set up before any buyers are onsite. They are most popular with first timers, the slightly nervous or inexperienced seller and also traders.
Premium pitches cost £30 for entry at 11.30am or £35 for 11am entry.
Trading starts at 12pm. All pitches are to set up along the side of the car.
All cars, up to 7 seaters and estates, are charged at the same price.
Cars with 8 or more seats and/or cars that are van based people carriers (for example Vito, Caravelle, Proace, Traveller, Bongo etc) need to book a VAN pitch.
Van Pitch Info
Only a handful of van spaces are available each week. PLEASE NOTE: We can no longer accommodate long wheel base (LWB) or Luton type vehicles due to access restrictions
Van pitches are for 8 seater mpv/mini bus/ VW Camper/Transporter & up to MWB Transit type vans only.
Kangoo/Berlingo/car based mini vans or 7 seat cars please book a car pitch.
£35 Standard van entry time of 12pm – there will be buyers onsite when you arrive.
£50 Premium van entry time 11am – giving some time to set up before any buyers are onsite.
Please note; NO LUTONS OR LWB VANS – we cannot get you onsite
You don’t need a car to have a pitch – you can arrive on foot.
Walk-in pitches do not need to be booked. They cost £10 for one person with one large bag/suitcase and you will get a table sized pitch area (tables are not provided by us but you may bring your own if you wish) We get walk in sellers onsite at around 1pm. Payment is cash only, upon entry.
If you’d like earlier entry and/or a larger pitch area feel free to book a car pitch instead (max 2 people per pitch) and you can still arrive on foot. If you decide to do this it’s essential you let us know – add a note to your booking, or email us separately please.
Please note that buyers start arriving onsite at 12pm, so there will be buyers already onsite when you start to set up at 1pm. Sellers have to be offsite by 5pm so a call for all sellers to start packing is made from 4pm.
