Given the surrounding Government guidelines on running a business during Covid, there are some important changes to take note of;
Collection will be strictly via appointment only. This is in line with the Governments 'click and collect' policy for non-essential retail. Successful bidders will be emailed their invoice at the close of the sale, which will include an online booking service.
We are still able to carry out condition reports on about half of the lots. Many of the goods are stored away and very difficult for staff to gain access to. Where there remains any doubt, and we are unable to provide a condition report, we recommend refraining from bidding.
There is no viewing. Government guidelines are absolutely clear. Non-essential retail (this includes auction houses) are to remain closed. Our first priority is the health and safety of our staff and customers. Several people have asked us to view, with the reasoning that other auction houses are allowing viewing in person via appointment. Honestly, we find this information hugely disappointing. Viewing for auctions will be held where, and only when, it is safe and legal to do so.
Electronic goods are sold in working order. Where possible, they have been safety tested, as well as shown in working order in the photos. If you buy something shown in working order, but find it does not work, you have 48hrs to return this item for a full refund.
Lots will continue to be added from 19th March. Late entries will be added on from lot 576 onwards.
