Slattery Auctions has had online capabilities for well over 15 years and moved swiftly last week to move all auctions online to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 as well as implementing strict hygiene and social distancing measures.

As one of our valued customers and clients, you would be aware that Slattery Auctions has been ahead of the curve in preparing for the restrictions around crowd numbers in indoor and outdoor premises and specifically for auction houses, as announced by the Priem Minister last night.

Please be advised that we have implemented strict new protocols around the inspection of assets, which require advance notice to our offices before arriving onsite to do our bit to reduce the spread of Coronavirus.

We are happy to extend video inspections to all our customers. We are constantly updating our online platforms based on the latest learnings in user experience to ensure they are the in the market, which is easy to see when comparing them. As a market leader in digital auction and valuation platforms, we are the best placed to deliver you the best outcomes.

To ensure the safety and well-being of our customers, clients and staff, we are also increasing the levels of restrictions around attendances onsite and disinfecting assets prior to sale and between inspections to play our part in reducing the spread of Coronavirus.

We will continue to help Australian businesses increase their liquidity and prepare for the challenges ahead. If you’re not ready to sell but want to be able to see in the event if a lockdown, speak to us now and we can start to prepare a plan with you.

We look forward to continuing to do business with you throughout the coming months and keeping the economy moving.
