How will the COVID-19 Virus Affect Future Auctions?

Our free mobile app for auctions

How will the latest virus, COVID-19 affect future auctions?  Here at Asset Marketing Pros-Trinity Auction Gallery, we are a staff of TWO.  Yes, David and I are the only staff members as it is most days. As a result, we are able to control passing on an illness to our clients. As most of you know, David is a cancer survivor so we learned a lot about immune systems and how to protect against viruses during his year of treatment and recovery.

We are handwashing and cleaning items as is our customary practice.  Bathrooms and surfaces are being sanitized after each visitor.  We are using a common-sense approach to keeping the spread of viruses to a minimum. This latest virus, COVID-19 aka Corona Virus will continue to spread as long as people are not careful in public places. Remember we are all responsible for the spread of viruses.  If you are in public as we all will be, cover any cough, wash your hands with soap and water and keep personal contact to a minimum.  If you have any symptoms please stay home until you recover.  The safety of our families, friends, and neighbors are our responsibility.

It has been and always will be our mission to promote the auction method of marketing as your first choice in buying or selling.  The economy of our country and communities depend on continued buying and selling to be healthy.

Our plan for the near future

Our auctions will be online events.  Pick up or shipping will not spread any viruses we are asking our customers to help by contacting us as to when they will be here at the auction facility.  If you are ill or suspect you have been in contact with anyone who may be ill, we ask you to refrain from pick up.  We will work with you for pick up at a later date.  We will schedule a live auction as soon as it is safe for large crowds to gather.  Follow this blog, our website or sign up for emails to stay up to date on what, where and when our next auction will be held.

Keep in mind, auctions are the BEST way to buy most anything you need or want, even toilet paper :).  Get busy searching auctions near you for the best buying experience.
