Auction House continues to respond to the impact of Coronavirus and is following the changing advice of government and medical organisations in its activities and operations. This includes home working for many in our teams, and social distancing when we are in our offices or visiting properties. We are continuing to do auction appraisals, inspecting and listing properties, marketing them for sale by auction and undertaking viewings, subject to Covid-safe access being available. Where possible we have created video tours of the lots we are selling and encourage virtual viewings of these. Please contact our team if you wish to make an appointment for a physical viewing – we will endeavour to assist but this will not be possible on all properties. In addition we would ask you to comply with NHS self-isolation advice if you or someone you live with has symptoms of Coronavirus – click the link below for the latest NHS Guidelines.
We put in place contingency plans to ensure continuity of our auction selling service as soon as lockdown was announced. Since then our auctions have been successfully run using Online Bidding, or as a Livestream service with Remote Bidding. These alternatives will continue to be operated until we are permitted to hold gatherings and operate our Room Auction events.
Full information is provided on each of our lots, but if required please call our regional office for assistance.
