As our team was drafting this particular blog, one of our members recalled watching Mister Roger's Neighborhood as a child. She mentioned that this is the perfect time for all of us to get back to the basics of childhood and be "good neighbors." You know, the kind that work together to make a difference, right where we are. The kind that takes responsibility to care for the most vulnerable. The kind that makes time to care for others, as well as ourselves, even when it's inconvenient or difficult.
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread and affect the entire nation, AuctionNinja is encouraging all our licensees to do the right thing for your neighbors, staff, bidders, and clients. If your posted sale is not an "essential" sale (i.e., a sale for real estate closing date that can't be changed), please refrain from holding and/or posting sales.
We are asking all our AuctionNinja licensees/vendors to please:
BE RESPONSIBLE NEIGHBORS!
We are in this together. We trust that you will make prudent choices in how you conduct your business in the safest manner possible. If you are in a position to ship items to your winning bidders, please do so with care and consideration for safety and health precautions. If you must hold on-site pick-up, please be sure to limit exposure and contact with clients and customers and enact cautionary protocols to minimize transfer of germs (i.e., disinfect all surfaces, curb-side pick-ups only, etc.). If your sale is not "essential" please postpone its closing until such time that business may be conducted safely, within the guidelines of your state/communities and without any health risks or repercussions.
We all need to do our part in stopping the spread of this virulent disease. Won't you be our neighbor?
