We want to start by thanking all of our clients for supporting us through this difficult time.

As you will know, the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak are leaving many businesses in a position where they are advising staff to work from home, self-isolate if they are high risk and keeping the working environment as virus free as possible.

Considering the broadcast made by Boris Johnson on Monday 16th March 2020, Tamlyns' management team have made the decision to host the Collectors & Militaria Auction on the 25th March 2020 as a timed online auction.

This means the following: -

·       To be able to bid, you will need to register with and place your bids on the lot(s) you wish to purchase. Like eBay, you will be notified if you are out bid giving you the chance to place a further bid on the lot(s).

·       You will not be able to place commission or telephone bids for this type of auction.

·       Unfortunately, there will be no viewing days for this auction. If you would like a condition report on any item, then please email and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as we can, but please bear with us.

·       Purchasing on this type of auction does mean that on top of our usual 21.6% Buyers Premium (inclusive of VAT) there will be an additional internet surcharge of 5% plus VAT on the hammer price.

·       Our Auction Room will not be open to the general public until further notice.

·       All collections will need to be made by appointment - if you are unable to confirm a time with our staff, then all collections will be treated on a one in, one out basis to allow us time to deal with each person as we are currently operating from a locked premises. Our Auction Room & offices are not open to the general public unless an appointment has been made. Please contact us by phone or email should you need to discuss anything. We ask for the safety of all our staff and clients, that you do not come to the offices without arranging beforehand.

We will have our Collectors and Militaria auction online by close of play Friday and should you wish to have a notification sent to you, then please respond to this email. We will provide you with a link to as well as a PDF version of the catalogue.

We thank everyone for their support and understanding during this unfortunate time and hope that all of you remain in good health.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us on the details below.
