We are pleased to announce Auctions continue, with some notable new procedures to ensure the safety of our staff, customers and communities.

AUCTION BIDDING TIMES AND DATES

Auctions continue weekly across all UK locations, bidding ending at the usual days and times but alongside the following guidance on public viewings...

AUCTION VIEWINGS RESUME - ENGLAND, WALES AND SCOTLAND

Public viewing resumes at our Nottingham, Marchington, Chesterfield, South Wales and Bo'Ness/Scotland salerooms. Please note though certain temporary limitations will be in place to cover safety measures and extended monitoring for both the safety of our customers and staff, including the compulsory use of face masks during viewings; Catalogues will continue to be available online along with an increase number of lot photos;



LIVE CHAT

To help speed up remote enquiries we shall be directing all usual phone enquires to a new John Pye Auctions live chat service through our website, where you will be able to direct typed enquiries straight through to our saleroom staff in the same way you would raise these queries at our sites during these viewings.

PAYMENTS

All auction lot payments must be made securely online by card or bank transfer. We will not be accepting any cash or card payments on-site. Both the Cash Offices and Coffee lounges will remain closed at this time.

DELIVERIES ONLY

Whilst social distancing rules continue for public safety, we request winning bidders refrain from attending site to collect lots. To support this request, all John Pye Auctions lots under a two person lift size will now all be delivered by our delivery partner DPD to winning bidders. There will be no courier requests at this time.

All lots of a two person lift size will be available by pallet delivery through approved pallet delivery companies.

MORE VOLUME & VARIETY

Whilst the John Pye Auctions have been in lockdown over the past months, we have continued to support our valued clients with inbound deliveries during this time. As a result, the resumption of our auctions will see a future surge in stock offerings similar to post-Christmas levels. This will be an opportune time to secure some great bargains through the auctions.

CONTINUED COMMUNITY CHARITY SUPPORT

We are finalising further charity auctions to provide further support for the communities around our John Pye sites in Marchington, Chesterfield, South Wales and Bo'Ness, as well as benefiting FareShare, the UK's national food bank charity. A national cricket themed charity auction is also held in conjunction with the English Cricket Board and English county cricket clubs.

If you are able to bid on these important charity auctions it will help make a big difference to those who most need help at this time.

Thank you for your continued patience and support during this period, we look forward to your continued custom and seeing you in due course at our sites, once it is safe to do so.

Sincerely,

Adam Pye
Managing Director
