Bishop and Miller 24 Mar 2020 News

Further to the governments recent announcement, we are delighted to say that we will be opening our
doors from Monday 1st June.

There are a few things we want to outline to re-assure our clients and customers that we are working to government guidelines provided and will do everything we possibly can to ensure your safety when you have contact with us.

Consigning Items to our auctions

When we open we will immediately be available to consign items to all our auctions.

We are now introducing two different ways of dropping items in to us. Firstly, you can use our new CONTACTLESS QUICK DROP CONSIGNMENT for ease and speed. This will involve very limited time in our saleroom, in a designated area.

The second way of consigning items to us is by contacting the office on 01449 673088 and booking an appointment with our valuers on a one-to-one basis at a time convenient to you either in the building or the comfort of your own home, but of course adhering to all government guidelines. 

Coming soon, we will be opening on a Saturday morning to make it even easier to consign to our auctions.

Auctions in June

We are very excited to say that we have plenty of auctions all ready for you in the coming months. Firstly we will kick off with four auctions in June. However all these auctions will be online only and all images and conditions of items in these auctions will be available on our website in the lot descriptions. The auctions will consist of the new look

For all these auctions there will be no viewing in our saleroom, if you require any further information on any of the lots then please contact the office on 01449 673088 or email

Auctions in July 

July sees our hugely successful specialist auctions starting up again with Silver, Fine Art, Military, Coins, Music and the Gentleman’s Library auctions. We are working hard to ensure that our specialist auctions will be available to view in our saleroom. However, we will be limiting the number of people able to view at any one time and ensuring we adhere to social distancing measures at all times.

We will ensure there is plenty of viewing available for all these auctions to ensure we can maintain social distancing and all health and safety measures. Further details will be available in due course as we want to ensure everyone remains safe.

All in all we have an amazing selection of items spread over eight glorious weeks of auctions (we know you have been missing it just as much as we have!).

You will start to see our auctions appearing online via our website and on in the coming weeks. We will remind you when they go live! If you are looking to consign lots to our auctions in July, we are still accepting consignments. Until we open you can email us at sending us images of the items you would like to include and we will reply giving you an auction estimate. Alternatively why not give us a call from Monday 1st June and book your appointment.

Thank you to all or our clients for your understanding during this lockdown period, but we can’t wait to see you all again soon! If you have any further questions then please do not hesitate to contact us!
