In accordance with the CDC and elected officials, R.H. Lee & Co. is placing some special policies for item previews, item pick-up and general cleanliness.
Item Preview: We will be limiting customers in the gallery to no more than 10 at a time. We ask that you try to maintain 6 feet of distance between other customers and staff during your visit.  If you should arrive and find the gallery to be at 10 people, please wait outside a few minutes until someone leaves and then you will be allowed to enter. 
Item pickup: We will be limiting pick-up to 3 vehicles at the loading dock at one time. If you arrive and find there are already 3 people at the loading dock, please be patient and wait in your car until you have a place to back in.  Before placing your first bid in the auction, you will be asked to agree to all terms & conditions in the auction, including terms of pick-up. 
General Cleanliness:  Our gallery doors will be open to allow fresh air to circulate and so that customers do not have to touch door handles.  We will be cleaning bathrooms and other heavily traveled areas regularly. Please maintain a safe distance from employees and other customers during your visit. 
Additional notes:  If you do not want to preview but would like more information about an item, please call us and we will be happy to look over an item for you, answer questions or even facetime.  We encourage you to pick up during the specified times listed but if you feel that you have limitations due to COVID-19, please call us to discuss pick-up alternatives.
