Covid-19 Advice

 
We hope you and your families are okay in these difficult times. The situation is a challenging one and we are all in it together. 
 
We are playing our part during this period by taking all necessary precautions, but HotLotz has been granted an exemption from the suspension of workplace activities for our online business.

ONLINE ONLY DURING JUNE
The saleroom will now not be open until further notice, in line with Singapore government requirements.
 
However, HotLotz is still available online through hotlotz.com and can continue to offer online sales, deliveries and distribution operations.

If you are considering buying, we can send additional photos, videos and written condition reports electronically. Just send us an email request indicating the sale and lot numbers you are interested in. We can courier to you any items you buy or you can arrange your own courier with us if you prefer.
 
We can also store items that you have 'won' FOC, until you are able to take delivery, providing your purchase invoice has been paid.
 
If you are considering selling, email or call us with details of your items or collections. Valuations can be done remotely. Items can be couriered to us for photography, cataloguing and sale. 
 
PAYMENTS
Temporarily, we will only be accepting cards or bank transfers. No cash or cheque payments.
 
GETTING IN TOUCH  
In the first instance please email (including your contact number) the saleroom rather than phoning the saleroom as staff may be working from home. Please be patient. We will get back to you, but it may take a little longer than usual. 
 
MONTHLY ‘HOME & DÉCOR’ AUCTION
Our weekly ‘Interiors & Antiques’ auctions will now shift to monthly ‘Home & Décor’ online-only timed auctions. 
 
Going forward, monthly ‘Home & Décor’ online-only timed auctions will take place on the first Sunday of every month (e.g. 7 June, 5 July, 2 August).
 
NEW MARKETPLACE – FIXED PRICED ITEMS AVAILABLE TO BUY NOW 
We are piloting a new Marketplace, initially available via our Facebook page, of preowned furniture, home decor and other items.
 
Every item offered will always be carefully checked, catalogued and curated by our team.

The only difference is that you will be able to purchase these items instantly at a fixed price. This fixed price will include free island-wide delivery.

New items will be added regularly, so no need to wait for a catalogue to be published or an auction to close.
 
CALL FOR CONSIGNMENT 
If you are spending more time at home, why not look to declutter or monetise some of your items or collections. 
 
HotLotz has been achieving excellent results domestically and internationally through our strategic partnership with the leading global auction platform, the-saleroom.com. 
 
Local and global buyers are spending more time at home, so now is a good time to sell. 
 
In particular, we are calling for consignment for our internationally marketed sales later this year, including: 

‘Asian Collectables & Works of Art’
‘Jewellery & Watches’
‘Designer & Luxury’ 
‘Fine Art’ 

If you have a single item, a private collection or even the contents of a home, please do email us. We are here to help.
 
On behalf of myself and my team, thank you for your continued support and understanding.
