SPECIAL RULES FOR BUYERS/CUSTOMERS TO COVER COVID-19 REGULATIONS

As the Government Guidelines will reduce the volume of buyers being able to attend the sale, below are  points we ask for your co-operation in order for the running of Live Sales.

This information is correct at the time of printing and is subject to changes in Government Guidelines or Directives regarding the control of the spread of COVID-19.

WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF A ‘NATIONAL LOCKDOWN’ WE STRONGLY REQUEST THAT VENDORS ADOPT THE DROP & GO POLICY

  • Potential purchasers MUST REGISTER with Harrison & Hetherington Ltd prior to the sale and again upon entry to the market – tel: 01228 406200 or email: info@borderway.com
  • Please remember that purchaser spaces will be limited, so only ONE person per business will be permitted entry to the sale ring.  A buyers viewing period of the sale stock will be available on the morning of the sale.
  • Face coverings are mandatory for all persons entering the mart. These must be worn without exception while in the market including the sales rings and pens.
  • Social distancing must be observed.
  • No children under 16 years old will be able to attend the sales and this must be strictly adhered to as entry will be refused.
  • Pregnant ladies must not attend the sale.
  • Viewing will be regulated by a one-way system throughout the mart and is to be permitted for registered buyers only. Please refer to individual sales for the respective viewing days and times.
  • To facilitate the Test and Trace system, all customers/visitors will be required to register into the market via a QR code. This process will include a declaration that they have not been in contact with anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19, nor are displaying symptoms personally.
  • Hand sanitiser stations will be available throughout the mart; however, it is strongly recommended that both consignors and buyers have an adequate personal supply and to use it regularly.
  • Please follow instructions from market staff and security staff. A private security firm will be in attendance to assist H&H in ensuring social distancing is observed wherever possible.
  • Strictly no private videoing/broadcasting on Social media, or phones etc in the pens or ring
  • If you are unable or do not wish to attend the mart but would like to bid on animal(s), then the auctioneers will faithfully execute commission bids for buyers. Please contact them and put your instructions in writing 48 hours in advance of the sale. Alternatively, you can arrange to make a telephone bid during the sale.
  • Live Stream Bidding – everyone is encouraged to register for this facility. This can used to bid from home or remotely from others areas including the market.  You can register via the website – https://harrisonandhetherington.co.uk/live-streaming/

We ask for your full co-operation and understanding during these challenging times. Please be kind and respect each other to ensure everyone remains safe at all times.
