How the current Coronavirus Covid-19 situation is affecting the Auction Centre
Dear Valued Client,
We are pleased to announce that the Auction Centre will fully reopen for business from Monday 15th June. We will be holding a full calendar of sales, carrying out valuations, both in the saleroom and when necessary at clients homes. We will also be offering our full collection and delivery service. However to protect staff and clients strict measures will be in place in terms of social distancing, regular use of hand sanitiser and saleroom capacity. In the interim period we are only open to the public if prior arrangements have been made for collections or deliveries. However, we are still available by telephone or email to provide valuations and auction advice. You can also request an online valuation through our website.

If you bought in our previous auctions, then please note that we offer a very reasonably priced postage service, with most items being covered by our standard £20 charge. Where possible we are happy to post smaller items by Special Delivery for only £10. At present we are still able to pack and ship on an ad-hoc basis, please email or call with your requirements. With regards to larger items and pieces of furniture, we fully understand that people may not be able to collect for a while - and no storage charges will be levied.
We will keep this page updated as the situation develops.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I wish you and your loved ones good health.
