Temporary Changes To Our Onsite Auctions And Procedures
Updated: April 3, 2020, 12:30 PM
As always, our customers and employees’ health and safety is our top priority. Keeping this in mind, and in continued adherence to COVID-19 “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” orders, J. Stout Auctions has chosen to combine APRIL’s live online-only auctions. J. Stout Auctions has combined the April 15, 2020 auction with the April 29, 2020 auction, thus creating one large Online-Only Auction on APRIL 29, 2020. Here is what you, our customer, can expect:
- Bidders CAN still PREVIEW and inspect items for sale, but by APPOINTMENT ONLY to adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols dictated by the local government. Preview days will be extended a week before the auction. J. Stout Auctions will provide a printable PDF catalog from its website for customer convenience.
- Due to COVID-19 regulations, J. Stout Auctions is limiting the number of people allowed per day, per location, to inspect and preview equipment. Please call (888) 230-8840 to schedule a preview appointment.
- J. Stout Auctions is continuing to do everything possible to minimize potential risks and keep the virus from spreading. We’ve implemented additional measures to sanitize and deep clean our facilities, providing hand sanitizer and keeping non-essential staff working from offsite locations.
- The April 29, 2020, online-only auction will combine inventory from BOTH our Spokane and Washougal, WA, facilities, as well as offsite locations. Please keep this in mind when scheduling an appointment to preview and when bidding. (The inventory catalog will list where items are physically located.)
- Customers interested in bidding at the J. Stout Auctions live online-only auctions can register to bid online from the following links on our website. You may also register at one of the two below listed J. Stout Auctions industry partner platforms. Click here for Proxibid or click here for Equipmentfacts. Registered bidders can then bid live at the upcoming event and follow along live with the auctioneer in real-time.
- Interested bidders can also participate by choosing an alternative form of bidding, including placing an absentee bid with staff via phone prior to the auction date, or by placing a pre-bid online from the comfort of your own home or office.
- You can choose to view the online auction event without registering to bid. Viewing non-bidding customers can simply log on to the J. Stout Auctions website and choose to view the auction live and follow along with the auctioneer as items are sold.
J. Stout Auctions is responding appropriately to the COVID-19 crisis and will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and make any future decisions with its customer’s health and safety in mind.
Please continue to check your email and follow J. Stout Auctions’ social media pages for any updates regarding upcoming auctions.
Thank you for your continued support of J. Stout Auctions.
