CHANGES IN PLACE FOR THE JULY AUCTION - PLEASE READ

We hope you have been keeping safe and well.

We are delighted to announce that we are now open and looking forward to resuming our monthly Auctions!

The health and wellbeing of our customers and staff is our first priority. To keep everyone safe, we will be implementing social distancing measures in line with the Government guidelines and will be limiting the number of customers in the Saleroom at any one time.

Please read the following carefully to help us to ensure we can resume our Auctions safely:

Viewing (Amended times)
Viewing dates for the July sale are strictly as follows:
Tuesday 14th July: 2.00pm – 5.00pm
Wednesday 15the July: 9.00am – 7.00pm

Please note that there will be viewing on the morning of the sale, however as we will be restricting the number of buyers in attendance to the Auction, we would ask that viewing be kept to the above dates where possible as anyone not booked in to attend will be asked to leave the premises once the Auction starts to ensure we do not exceed numbers.

Viewing will take place from the back entrance of the Saleroom. We require all customers to wear gloves whilst viewing which will be provided at the entrance. Please ensure that you follow any instructions from staff, as well as reading and adhering to signage on the walls and the floor. If we have large numbers viewing, there may be a delay in you entering the Saleroom, so please be prepared for this.

Registration for Viewing will be required for all customers, regardless of whether you have an account with The Portcullis Auction Room or not.
You will not be able to enter the saleroom unless you have completed a registration form with your name and contact details.

Sale Day – Thursday 16th July at 12pm
We will be taking bookings for attendees to this Auction from Monday 13th July (To ensure the catalogue is available) and this will be done on a first come, first served basis.
The Auction will be split into 3 sections –

Lot 1 - Lot 150 (approx.): Boxes
Lot 150 – Lot 400 (approx.): Cabinets/Smalls & Lots on tables by the Rostrom
Lot 401 – End: Furniture, Pictures & Rugs
We will be asking customers to book into which section they would like to attend and once that section is over we will ask those customers to leave the Saleroom to allow the next group in. We are happy for people to attend all three sections, but they must be booked in or we will not be able to accommodate this.
With this is mind we would ask that where possible, you attend the Auction alone and adhere to the social distancing measures in place at all times.
Registration for this Auction will be required for all customers, regardless of whether you have an account with The Portcullis Auction Room or not.
You will not be able to enter the saleroom unless you have completed a registration form with your name and contact details.

The Portcullis office will be CLOSED and all registration and payments will be done in the market office as you come through the main doors of the building. This ensures we can limit contact and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

If you wish to leave Commission Bids, the forms will be available at the market office. Completed forms should be placed face down in the tray at the office for processing.

Please note that online buyers cannot collect on the day of the sale, Lots can be collected from 11am on Friday morning.

Collections from the July Auction

Once payment has been made (on the day at the market office) we require all customers to go out of the main doors and take their cars to the rear entrance of the saleroom with their paperwork for collection.
You will not be permitted to re-enter the saleroom from the internal entrance. You will need to hand over your paperwork to the staff member and wait outside for the Lots to be brought to you.
To collect large items you will need to wait until the sale is completed and once possible, we would ask that you and one other person go in to the Saleroom when instructed by staff to collect the Lots(s).

Finally, we would ask you to:

Please follow Government advice to limit your contact with other people

Wash your hands regularly using soap and water in the facilities provided

Wear gloves and/or a mask where possible

Thank you for your assistance and we look forward to catching up with you all!
