Dear Valued Client,
As government restrictions are eased, we are delighted to announce that our salerooms will be open to the public again from Monday 12th April. It's just not been the same without you!
All forthcoming auctions and viewing will be open to the public. With social distancing and face-masks, we will ensure that this is a safe environment, however we are now providing free online bidding and are happy to compile condition reports and email extra images if you prefer not to come along in person just yet. Of course, you can still arrange telephone and commission bids in the usual manner.
Live bidding through our website is very easy to use, but we can help you set this up if you are new to the process. We also offer a full in house postage service for most items and can arrange local delivery for larger pieces. You are still able to collect from the Auction Centre - please pay your invoice through the website, bank transfer, or by card over the telephone or at reception upon collection.
In terms of consigning lots for future sales, we are open for free valuations at the Auction Centre Monday to Friday 9am-5.30pm and Saturday 9am-1pm, contact our offices to arrange a home visit or submit an enquiry through our website for valuations and auction advice.
You can bring items in to consign into forthcoming auctions during office hours as above, or call us to arrange a collection.
