Business Arrangements during Covid-19

Our priority at this difficult time is to keep our clients and staff safe and healthy, and not to incur unnecessary risks. It follows that we need to modify the way we conduct our business, which we intend to do in accordance with current government recommendations and public health directives. Read on . . .

AUCTIONS: With immediate effect and until further notice all auctions will be conducted behind closed doors with no public access to the Runcorn saleroom either for public viewing or in house bidding. Intending buyers may bid on-line via or by absentee commission bids. Please send an email as soon as possible if you require a condition report for any lot. Successful bidders may collect lots immediately after the end of the Wednesday auction or alternatively, on Thursday or Friday following the sale. Lots may not be collected during the course of the auction, and all transactions must be concluded by close of business on the Friday following the sale.
CONSIGNMENTS: We shall continue to accept items for auction at our Runcorn site on any Monday, Tuesday or Thursday between the hours of 9am and 4pm. Clients are reminded that the offices are closed every Wednesday. Visitors should respect each other's space, avoid unnecessary contact, and maintain good hygiene practices throughout their visit. The recommendation of regular hand washing should always be adhered to, especially when items are being handled and passed from person to person.
