Toovey's are once again open to the public, but to ensure safe social distancing all visits are by appointment only

Coronavirus COVID-19 Policy

Toovey’s are open to the public but to ensure safe social distancing all visits remain by appointment only. Please call 01903 891955 to book. We can once again provide valuations, collections, viewing and auction attendance at our Spring Gardens Rooms by appointment.

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve focused on making sure everyone visiting Toovey’s is as safe as possible. As government guidance on COVID-19 continues to change, we wanted to share an update on the safety measures at our saleroom.

While the easing of restrictions means that some safety measures will no longer be a legal requirement, we wish to remain cautious. In line with the government advice to act carefully, we feel it’s important to continue with certain measures to be on the safe side.

Please keep wearing a face covering if you can

Although the legal requirement to wear a face covering in England ends on 19 July, the government expects and recommends that people continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces.

So we’re encouraging our staff and you, our customers, to continue wearing face coverings if you can.

We’re keeping enhanced hygiene, cleaning and safety measures in place

As before, you’ll find sanitiser and wipes at the saleroom entrance.

We have created an exciting new series of auctions, view our revised calendar of sales here. All our auctions will be online too via but additional charges apply to use this service.

We are understandably experiencing a huge number of telephone calls, please bear with us and keep trying to call us.

To enable us to react to changes in guidelines and accommodate the new sale cycle, we will not be producing a printed catalogue for these auctions. Instead we have focused on the free online catalogues and made sure there are more illustrations for our potential bidders and buyers. Clients can print all catalogues from our website, if required, at
