Important Information

We are closely monitoring Government advice on the Covid-19 pandemic and adjusting our business and operations accordingly. We have a responsibility for the safety and welfare of staff and clients and as a leading regional auction house to achieve the best possible price for all our vendors.   With this in mind, the auction centre is now temporarily closed and we are postponing auctions until further notice, including:

Fans & Fancies – Thursday 26 March

Antiques & Interiors – Friday 27 March

Toys & Sporting – Wednesday 1 April

Antiques & Interiors including Beswick & Border Fine Arts and Natural History – Friday 17 April

Wine & Whisky – Friday 17 April

Country House; Jewellery, Watches & Silver – Saturday 25 April

We will be reviewing future sale dates on a rolling basis and will alert all vendors when a new sale date is determined, with a pre-sale advice letter. All consigned items will be safely stored with us in the meantime at no extra cost.

Email & Virtual Valuations

If you would like to consign an item(s) to a future auction, we would be very pleased to offer you an initial valuation via email or video link such as Skype, Team Viewer, Zoom etc.    Please email Jeremy.pattison@tennants-ltd.co.uk for further details.

Information for Buyers - Payments & Collections

Please note all payments can be made online or via bank transfer. As you are unable to collect at this time, we are happy to hold items, once paid for, free of charge until we reopen to the public.  Please note we are not dispatching items at this time either.

Information for Vendors / Sellers

If you have sold an item with us throughout March, please be advised our normal terms of business apply and we will endeavour to meet them. https://www.tennants.co.uk/buy-sell/selling-with-tennants/

If you require a bank transfer rather than a cheque, please email enquiry@tennants-ltd.co.uk (oversees fees apply).

We find ourselves in unprecedented times but we must all follow the advice of the Government and World Health Organisation to help prevent the spread of the virus.  

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and many kind words of support that we have received. 

We look forward to getting back to business as usual and wish you and your family well in the meantime.
