Any places that take "car stuff" in one go?

Some of you may know I recently lost a close relative, I was asked by his widow to get rid of all his cars/projects, which Ive done.

I'm now left with a doule garage full of various engines, lights, wheels, lights etc.

As people have bought various cars, they have said things like, that light on its own is worth 100 (Ford light brand new in box, a genuine part which are not made anymore) set of 4 very old TR6 wheels (spindles) worth 500
TVR Grantura fibre glass bonnet worth 500
Old tin of oil (50's/60's) worth 20
V8 TR8 engine and gearbox, X2 Alfa Romeo engines
TVR Grantura gearbox (Might be from another model though)
Suspension bits, old tools, old stereos, tons of classic car magazines.
Basically a ton of stuff, some worth some money, some of it just tat.
Ideally Id rather get someone who would come in and take the lot, or the majority of it for a fixed price.
I know doing it this way, we get less money, than taking our time and going through it all but his wife just wants to make room.

Does anyone know of any places that could just come in a take the lot?

I used to trade at Newark autojumble, and would certainly have driven to you and bought the lot, however, as you say, there is always someone who will say "this is worth this or worth that", but you have to sell it, they don't. TR6 wires have to be totally spotless/flawless, or you'll have them for ever.
If you have the time, and don't mind the travel and if you can get your hands on a van, load it and take it to the monthly autojumble on Newark showground. At least buyers who attend there are serious buyers, and normally carry a good wad on them. I've taken well over a grand there before in bits n' pieces.
One mans sh*t is another mans gold.
TVR bonnet, engines etc, best on Ebay I would have thought.

Why don't you chat to David Gerald TVR , they like the older cars so may take the lot off your hands. the TVR CC website may be another place to go as like Alfa fans they are always on the look out for bits.
