Covid-19 Secure Procedures for Sellers

Entries accepted by appointment subject to suitability and space available.
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday – 10am – 3pm
Saturday & Monday – By Prior Arrangement

As a condition of re-opening, all businesses are required by law to put in place measures to ensure they meet the Covid-19 Secure Guidelines to protect the health and wellbeing of their staff, customers and other visitors.

It is therefore a legal requirement that customers and visitors, as well as employees, must comply with the measures and good practice adopted by Stephen Roberts (Auctioneer) Limited to to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

ALL SELLERS MUST BOOK AN APPOINTMENT,  BRING A LIST & WEAR A FACE COVERING – ANYONE REFUSING TO COMPLY WILL BE DENIED ENTRY OR ASKED TO LEAVE.
PLEASE TELEPHONE THE OFFICE ON 01953 885676 TO BOOK.

Our new procedures are designed to ensure we minimise the amount of time sellers need to spend at the Salerooms. We will be operating a ‘Drop and Go’ system to reduce contact time between staff and customers and maintain Social Distancing.

We will be offering 30-minute ‘windows’ for your arrival. When booking a slot, please tell us which section the majority of lots you are bringing will be for:
Outside Yard & Tools – Table & Cabinet Items – Furniture – Electrical Items.

Our selling space has been reduced to allow for Social Distancing. We can therefore only accept items we are confident we can sell so may reject items that we know to be un-saleable. Please do not be offended as it will save you the inconvenience of coming back to collect un-sold items.

REPORT TO RECEPTION ON ARRIVAL – PLEASE DO NOT UNLOAD UNTIL INVITED TO DO SO BY A MEMBER OF STAFF.
You may have a short wait while a previous customer finishes unloading in order to maintain Social Distancing.

Printed copies available from the Salerooms or write your own.

    • Put your Name, Address, Telephone Number and email Address (if you have one) at the top.
    • Items of significance that you would prefer to be sold individually, should be listed separately along with any reserve price required (See note on reserves below)
    • If you are happy to leave it to us to unpack and sort your lots, you do not need to list box contents.
      eg: ‘6 Boxes of China’ or ‘3 Boxes of Tools’ will be sufficient.
    • Your list and lots will be allocated a Vendor ID number before you leave.
    • Keep a copy of your list or take a photo on your mobile phone.
    • Any discrepancies will be notified once items have been unpacked.
    • If you wish to discuss reserves etc please telephone the Auctioneer between 3pm & 5pm rather than while you are delivering to the Salerooms.
    • Reserves: When entering items for sale, vendors may ask us not to sell an item unless it reaches an agreed minimum price – this is called the ‘Reserve’. It is Saleroom policy to offer lots for two sales at their reserve price. If items remain unsold after two sales, and are not collected by the vendor on the Wednesday following the second auction, they will be offered for a third sale at the Auctioneer’s discretion and may be sold for less than the reserve price. It is the seller’s responsibility to contact the salerooms to find out if items have sold.

Customers arriving late or without an appointment or list will be asked to return to their vehicle, complete a list if necessary, and wait in their vehicle until the next available slot.

Please let us know if you cannot make your appointment so we can give it to another customer.
