Since our first message to you following the temporary closure of our offices on 23 March we have continued to work hard looking at new and exciting ways in which we can provide you with an outstanding service. This challenging environment gives us the time and scope to look closely at our services and how we can improve the service we provide to you.

A timed online auction runs between two clearly specified dates and is scheduled to finish at a set time. There is no auctioneer present, you will be able to bid directly onto the website until the auction closes. If you leave a bid and are subsequently outbid you will receive an email informing you, giving you the opportunity to raise your bid before the auction closes.
A live online auction takes place on a single day, with an auctioneer present on the rostrum to sell the items. The auction will be broadcast live on our website in the usual way with bidding directly into the auction room, purchasers can also leave commission bids or request a telephone bid in advance of the sale.
