Coronavirus COVID-19 Policy

Last updated: 29.09.20 - 10.01pm


We are open!

We have created a COVID Secure environment to ensure the safety of our staff and clients. As a result, certain aspects of our business will change in the short term.

We are returning with a temporarily smaller team, so please be patient when calling, emailing or visiting our salerooms.
As set out by the UK Government, customers visiting auction houses do have to wear face coverings. Please also use one of the posters in reception to check in on the NHS app.

Opening Hours:

Our opening hours will be Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm. Our café will remain closed and will not be available during viewings.


Valuations at the salerooms will be by appointment Monday to Friday between 10am and 2pm, so please call our offices to arrange on 01903 891955. We can provide house visits following government guidelines at all times. In addition, Toovey’s continue to offer online valuations by email.


Our auction calendar has changed. We have decided on an exciting new schedule of single day auctions rather than our usual sale week format.

Viewing and auction attendance in person will be by appointment, so please call our offices to book your slot. You will also need to register your interest to attend the auction in person to enable us to comply with social distancing. Online bidding, of course, is still available.

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

Stay up to date!

More sale dates will be added very soon, to be notified of forthcoming sales please sign up to our auction alerts at

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 and have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

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 Toovey
