The spring auction is postponed!
New auction dates 14-15 May!
Considering the situation with the coronavirus Postiljonen would like to
inform our customers on how we are planning to conduct our business in the near
Our highest priority is to ensure the safety of our customers and employees
and therefore we are following the Swedish Public Health Department’s mandates
regarding precautionary measures to stop spreading the virus. This includes special
routines for hygiene, traveling and social contacts. Therefore we are postponing
the spring auction until Thursday 14 - Friday 15 May.
Another reason for taking this extraordinary step of postponing the auction, was the
closing of the Danish borders intercepting the Swedish access to Copenhagen Airport
until after the Easter Holidays. "Our airport" is only a 20 minutes train ride from
our office, and the "closedown" has made it impossible for our foreign clients to travel
this way to participate in the viewing and/or the auction.
At the moment our office is open during normal business hours in order to continue to
offer our customers valuation service and auction viewing of lots from the Spring Auction.
However we are making the following changes:
- All viewings as well as customer visits and employee contacts will be conducted
under a hygiene and safety protocol modeled especially for this situation by
Postiljonen's occupational health service provider, AVONOVA.
- Auction viewings in Copenhagen 25 March and at SFEX 2020 in Helsinki 28-29
March are cancelled due to travel restrictions and postponed exhibition.
- Viewing at Postmuseum 18 March is taking place. All Swedish single items and
chosen lots and collections will be with us. This is an excellent opportunity!
There will be a hygiene and safety protocol in place at the viewing.
- Viewing at our office, Monday 30 March – 3 April, will take place as planned.
If you are visiting us these dates we would be very grateful if you could notify
us in advance. Then we can estimate the number of visitors during the week. If
you need assistance with travel plans we will be glad to help.
- Flexible viewing dates, at any time until the auction. If you would like to
visit us and view the auction lots between now and 14-15 May on a specific date,
please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate this. All dates with
planned viewings after request will be updated continually at our website.
- Options for digital viewings will be extended. Please contact us, we will be
very flexible. And do not forget that most collections already have extra pictures
in our web catalogue. Certain "viewing" over phone or Skype could also be available.
- Postal and internet bidders. We thank those of you who have already sent us your
bids. We hope for your understanding regarding these measures, which we consider to
be necessary. We will of course accept cancellations, if so please let us know as
soon as possible. Thanks again for your understanding and cooperation.
