Buying at Byrne's


Saleroom procedures in place for being Covid-19 secure 

We are really, really looking forward to seeing all our buyers again, and we hope that you have all kept safe and well during lockdown.  We have worked really hard to implement changes that ensure the saleroom is safe for us and you for viewing and collecting lots.  But I am sure you appreciate that we will need your help and probably a great deal of your patience to make sure that everything runs smoothly as we speed along this learning curve! We will constantly review procedures and make changes accordingly, and your constructive feedback will be welcomed. In brief the biggest changes that affect buyers are detailed below:

Our next auction will take place on 9th September at 9am.  This will be conducted behind closed doors. Facilities for online bidding will be available, as will commission bidding and telephone bidding.

Viewing for this auction will take place on 6th September between 10am and 2pm, 7th September 10am to 6pm and 8th September 10am to 4pm.  We can accommodate a maximum of 20 people in the saleroom at a time so viewing will be on an appointment basis.  One hour slots (or mulitples thereof) can be booked by phone. More than one member of a household can attend but each individual must book a place. When you book a slot to view you will be sent our guidance for viewing.

There will be no public access to the saleroom on sale day for the purposes of bidding. It is possible however to pay for and collect your bought lots on sale day. Payment can be made using our online payment facility or by bank transfer, Apple Pay or debit and credit card at the saleroom.  Cash and cheque payments cannot be accepted. 

We will minimise contact as far as possible when you are collecting lots.  This means we will not able to deal with as many people at the same time as usual and it may mean that collections take longer; we ask for your patience in this. If you buy something that requires two people to remove it from the saleroom you will need to bring someone with you to help. It is not necessary to make an appointment.

Our usual terms of business apply.
