Auction premiere without audience in the salesroom

Special situations require special measures...
Therefore, the auction of 28 March 2020 was held without an audience in the salesroom, but with a livestream on our homepage and on two online auction platforms.

The Oldtimer Galerie became an improvised film studio and our crew took bids on up to five phones at the same time.

We thank our loyal and new customers for their active participation - be it online, by phone or by written bid.

We would also like to thank all friends, partners, the technicians - Benny Wyder from Swissmusicservice and Mario Hodler from Kilchenmann AG - and the media for their great support.

Turbulent days...
After the print catalogue was irrevocably on the assembly lines at Jordi Printing, we had to adapt to the latest official instructions in two additional stages. This meant acting. In the 3rd phase, as it was known that the 100 person limit was also forbidden, a quick decision was made during the coffee break on Thursday morning. Saint Peter was well-disposed towards us, the sun was shining. All auction vehicles, mainly from our employees of the closed restaurant, were driven out to the main entrance. This very short carpet ride was filmed and afterwards the cars were lined up under the open sky. Our workshop lift and a 4 column lift at our neighbours Graber Sportgarage AG were then available for underbody shots. Our old lift went on strike for the first time after a good 20 cars due to overheating. The ventilation of the lift motor by means of a compressor provided a functional remedy. In the evening at 9 pm all pictures and films were available on our computers and most of them could already be viewed by the public via our website. I would like to express my sincere thanks to all our employees, neighbours and the manageable, understanding spectators including the police. Once again, I would like to express my special thanks to the Toffen Crew. Respect.

The hut keeper Reinhard Schmidlin
