IMPORTANT MESSAGE (updated 26/05/2020):

On behalf of us all at Toovey’s I would like to thank you for your continued loyalty and support during these difficult times. Our thoughts are with all of you who are affected by this situation.

With the rising tide of Coronavirus COVID-19 I am deeply saddened to tell you that Toovey’s salerooms will be temporarily closed with immediate effect, we must all play our part.

Along with the retail sector, Auction Rooms remain on the government’s list of businesses which remain temporarily closed to the public, but we hope to open on 15th June 2020.

We are putting in place plans to re-open the salerooms as soon as it is safe to do so. As a first step we are now able to provide online and virtual valuations.

For online valuations you will need to provide us with good, clear photographs of the items, including close-ups of any marks or signatures. This needs to be accompanied by measurements, and a note of any condition issues or interesting history that you know, this will enable us to provide you with a good, provisional valuation subject to seeing the item.

For 25 years we have sought to serve you and we will continue to do so in any way we can.

With our thanks and best wishes, Rupert

Rupert Toovey., FSA, FRICS, FRSA.
