Covid 19 and future sales update:
Future sales will now take place over 2 days with Furniture, Garden, Pictures and Tools on the Monday and Cabinet items, collectibles and misc smalls on the Tuesday.
Bidding will be online or commission bids only - there will be no bidding in the room on sale day until further Government advice allows.
Viewing will now be on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday before the sale (9am - 4pm). There will be no appointment necessary but please be advised that a maximum of 15 households will be allowed in the saleroom at any one time (we expect all households to move around the saleroom in the same social distance bubble rather than spread out across the room) so we will if needed be operating a one in and one out policy at busier times.
Upon entering the saleroom all visitors will be expected to either sanitise their hands or wear the gloves provided. If you are already wearing gloves please sanitise these or dispose of them in the bin provided. Masks will be optional as per Government advice but this may change in the future. We expect all persons attending the premises to observe social distancing rules – the flaunting of which will not be tolerated as the health and safety of our staff and other customers remains paramount, floor markings will be there to help.
There will be no hot or cold drinks facilities available on viewing days unfortunately, in addition there will also be no access to customer toilets so please plan ahead.
Under no circumstances should you enter the saleroom if you are displaying any of the symptoms of Covid-19 which may include a cough, fever or loss of taste or smell.
Collection for your purchased items will be by appointment only which you can book with the office either by email or by phone from the Monday of the sale until Friday following the sale in 15 minute time slots (if you have bought a substantial amount we will book you consecutive slots).
Payment is preferred by BACS but card payments will be taken on the day via the customer not present method to stop repeated use of the machine. Cash will also be accepted but is discouraged.
Your items will be bought to a collection area by a member of our staff but please be aware they will be unable to help load it into your vehicle for you. Please also bring your own packing materials if needed.
All items will have to be collected and paid for by the Friday following the sale. Items not paid for or with no arrangements in place will be resold in our next sale and the buyer reported without exception.
Unfortunately due to an extreme backlog caused by the virus we will not be accepting any vendor consignments until further notice. We envisage that we will be accepting lots again some time in the Autumn.
This situation is very fluid and subject to change at short notice. Please call us on 01235 812287 if you have any questions whatsoever or send us a message using the form on the website.
We at Churchill Auctions hope this finds everyone as well as can be expected and look forward to seeing you in a safe and socially distanced manner in the near future.
