Covid-19 Update – appointments still necessary to bid in person

  • Regulations and Guidance from the Government concerning COVID-19 have meant a new way of working and a new way of running our auctions. Since England moved to Step 4 of the roadmap on 19 July, Government advice is that everyone should be cautious while managing the risks as cases of COVID-19 remain high. Therefore, we will continue to operate our viewing days and sale days with appropriate precautions. This means it is not necessary to book an appointment to attend a viewing day, but we will allow only a maximum of 10 visitors into the sale room at any time. A limited number of places will be available to those wishing to bid in person. On auction days, please telephone in advance to book a place if you would like to bid in person. We encourage bidding live through the internet on www.the-saleroom.com, or by leaving a commission bid.
  • We encourage visitors to the auction room to wear a mask and be mindful of social distancing. Please sanitise your hands upon arrival, and masks and gloves continue to be available free of charge.
  • Persons viewing a sale are asked to minimise their handling of objects. We will gladly provide condition reports and supply further images by email. Please speak to a member of staff if you require assistance.
  • Online bidding for our sales will be available through www.the-saleroom.com. Telephone bids (subject to availability) and commission bids will be accepted. Please see our Home Page and Auction Calendar for future auction and viewing dates and times.
  • We continue to provide valuations for probate.
  • We no longer accept cash payments. Contactless card payment preferred, or BACS. We cannot accept ‘cardholder not present’ payments in excess of £300, in which case direct bank transfer will be necessary.
  • Catalogues – these are published on our website, and we encourage bidders to download the catalogue to their smartphone or tablet. Free wi-fi available. A printed catalogue will no longer be available for inspection. If you would like to purchase a printed copy, please pay by contactless card.
  • Toilets – we regret that toilet facilities are no longer available for use by customers or visitors.
  • No food or drink is to be consumed on the premises.
  • Please do not visit the auction room if you have tested positive for COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19, if you feel unwell, or have been ‘pinged’ by NHS Test and Trace.
