An Important Note About COVID-19
Dear Blackmon friends and customers,
The COVID-19 virus is the subject of conversation and worry around the world. We have seen many large events being cancelled out of safety concerns and we have taken note. We will be implementing new procedures and also reminding you of current options to live bidding:
- We are now conducting online virtual auctions. This means that bidding will take place via an online platform but you will still hear a live auctioneer. We like this method because it still allows interaction between the buyers and the auction staff so last minute decisions can be made and questions can be answered.
- Equipment inspections will be before the auction begins during specified times. We have a 72 acre facility and it is all outdoors so social distancing should not be an issue. We will have hand sanitizer stations at the sale site and we encourage everyone to respect the safe distance recommendations and stay three (3) to six (6) feet away from the other customers.
- When registering at the sale, please sanitize your hands before touching the pens and papers. Please keep your distance from our employees when interacting with them.
- We will continue our online bidding option through Proxibid just like we have always done. We will add additional small items online that we normally have not in the past.
We believe in taking care of our customers and that is what has made us one of the leaders in the auction industry for the last 81 years. But we also know that we still need to run businesses that support our families and employees and keep the economy going strong. Whatever the severity and outcome is with the virus, life will continue and business will continue. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact any of us. Our contact information can be found here.
Thank you again for your support and level heads during this time,
President, Blackmon Auctions
