The Timed Online only format was a hit with new buyers attracted by the Buy-It-Now option allowing any lot to be knocked out of the sale by purchasing at the higher price guide, accounting for 25% of the overall sale.
The unavailability until August of our usual auction venue at Wokingham Town Hall due to Covid-19 and a special reduced premium of 3% from the-saleroom.com encouraged us to opt for the Timed Online only auction format (we usually have timed auctions after our regular sale to clear any unsolds lots).
 
Our weekly valuations sessions continue throughout the summer accepting suitable items for our October sale. See:  https://www.wokinghamauctions.com/valuations/
