We will be resuming our regular auction viewing times & room bidding. This will be by appointment only.

 

Please ring the office or email if you wish to view the sales or be in the room when the auctions are live. Please book early to avoid disappointment as we have a maximum capacity on all of our salerooms.

Lytham premises

The Lytham office is now back open to the public. 

Collections


We will be continuing to use the pre-booking system for the collection of won lots. 

 

Please phone the office to arrange a convenient date and time, 0161 432 1911 or email on capesdunn@gmail.com. 

 

Goods will be handed over on a no-contact basis in the car park to the rear of the building – if the lot is large and/or heavy, ensure you have adequate help with you for loading into your vehicle. 

 

Also, there will be no packaging available so make sure you bring your own materials. 

 

On arrival in the car park, please first come to the front office, if you haven't been advised otherwise.

 

These restrictions are relevant to couriers, ensure that you advise your chosen agent of our procedures.

 

We encourage ALL invoices to be settled prior to arrival to minimise contact with staff but we will be able to process your payments in saleroom as of the 12th April. 

 

Invoices can be settled via bank transfer or over the telephone with a UK registered debit card for transactions up to £500.

Valuations Days


These will be on a strict appointment booking system and timed slots (please note a maximum of 8 items per slot).

If you turn up to the office without an appointment you will be turned away.

To book please ring the office on 0161 432 1911 or email capesdunn@gmail.com

To keep contact to a minimum, please pack as much as possible in advance – noting the item numbers on each box.
