Say hello to PFK Auctioneers & Valuers- Selling Online Only
Given the weird world we’re living in, we’ve adapted our business model and, for the foreseeable future – certainly at least until a vaccine exists – we will not be holding ‘public’ (physical attendance) auctions. Whilst we can in theory do this from June 1st, I believe it is simply too risky, especially as Cumbria has one of the highest infection rates in the UK.
All of our sales will be conducted online and we’ve devised a new format.
From June 2020, we shall hold two types of auction per month –
1. A Live Webcast sale of Fine art, Antiques and Interior objects (around 500 lots per sale, minimum lot value £50)
2. A Timed 10-day auction of useful household, decorative and miscellaneous objects, including white goods, electricals and gardening items (around 1500 lots per sale, no minimum lot value)
The live webcast sale shall be held on the last Wednesday of each month (next June 24th), whilst the Timed sales shall finish on the last day of each month (next June 30th)
Viewing of objects for sale & Collection of objects purchased is available in person on a limited and pre-arranged basis, conforming to Covid-Secure rules – please contact us to organise this.
We’re excited about this format, which will allow us to increase operating efficiency, be Covid-Secure and increase the amount of goods we are able to sell – offering you a better service.
Entries are invited for all auctions now! We can offer valuations by Zoom, WhatsApp, Instagram Live, email photo, telephone and in person – on a pre-arranged and socially distant basis (please note all attendance to our saleroom must be on a pre-arranged basis). Home visits are available, subject to Covid-Secure policies, but we would encourage all clients to send us images or videos of their items instead if possible.
We can arrange collection of your goods for sale.
We are also very much able to arrange house clearances and probate valuations at vacant properties – demand has surged for all these services in the last couple of weeks.
Despite the challenges of Covid-19, we’re here to assist you with a full range of services.
Thank you for reading this and have a look at our latest catalogue!
Feel free to contact me to consign or just to have a chat.
