Buying & Selling at our auctions from the comfort of your own home

Monday, 23 March, 2020

In light of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we would like to reassure customers that both our salerooms are aiming to stay operational until Friday 27th March, unless this decision is taken out of our hands by the Government. Our scheduled auction at Penkridge Salerooms on Weds 25th March will be going ahead as planned online.
The health of our team and customers is of utmost importance to us and, in line with Government advice, the saleroom is no longer accessible to any purchasers or vendors to minimise human contact.
We are, however, harnessing the power of technology so needn’t miss out on the thrill of buying and selling at auction – here’s how you can still be involved:

Buying at auction

Viewing:

  • Our fully illustrated online catalogue for all sales means you can view lots from the comfort of your own home
  • Comprehensive condition reports are included in the catalogue
  • Email or call us with any questions you have on specific lots – we’ll be happy to assist
  • We have made the decision to suspend viewing in person, in light of the recommendations for social distancing.
