WE HOPE YOU ARE ALL WELL AND STAYING SAFE.
BECAUSE OF THE PANDEMIC AND IN ORDER TO MEET THE SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES AND TO KEEP OUR STAFF AND CUSTOMERS SAFE, WE WILL HAVE TO CHANGE THE FORMAT OF OUR AUCTIONS. WE HAVE DECIDED TO MOVE FROM WEEKLY TO FORTNIGHTLY AUCTIONS.

HOWEVER, WE WILL BE OPENING LONGER FOR VIEWING AND WILL BE ACCEPTING COMMISSION BIDS EITHER IN PERSON OR VIA OUR WEBSITE. WE ARE ALSO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT YOU WILL NOW BE ABLE TO BID “LIVE” AS WE HAVE TEAMED UP WITH easyliveauction.com
OUR NEXT AUCTION WILL BE ON FRIDAY 6TH NOVEMBER 2020 WITH A NEW STARTING TIME OF 10AM.
WE WOULD PREFER CUSTOMERS TO WEAR FACE COVERINGS & DISPOSABLE LATEX/NITRILE GLOVES DURING VIEWING & COLLECTION TIMES, TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF BOTH STAFF AND CUSTOMERS. WE HAVE INSTALLED SEVERAL HAND SANITISER DISPENSERS WHICH MUST BE USED UPON ENTRY AND EXIT. OUR OFFICE AND JEWELLERY CABINET HAVE BEEN FITTED WITH SAFETY SCREENS. OUR STAFF WILL ALSO BE WEARING PPE.
