KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Fast Facts for Safety at the Fall Auction

Credit: Original article published by Barrett-Jackson.


Barrett-Jackson has implemented new safety measures that will allow you to relax and focus on all The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions have to offer. Working together, we are confident we can all help each other feel more comfortable and still create great moments and memories! See below for important details to know before attending the 2020 Fall Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale:

  • Face coverings. As much as we love to see your smiling faces, in compliance with City and County guidelines, face coverings are required. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them, except when dining. You may remove your face covering while actively eating or drinking, but please remember you need to be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing. Designated areas to eat and drink will posted throughout the site. (Face coverings will also be for sale near the auction entrance.)
  • Temperature screenings. Let’s keep everyone healthy! Guests’ temperatures will be checked with no-touch thermometers before entering. And we get it – it’s hot in Arizona, so if you get a reading of 100.4 F or above, you can have some time to cool off at a designated area and we can check it again. Anyone who is still running hot (above 100.4 F) will unfortunately not be able to attend.
  • Clear Bag Policy remains in effect. Guests will only be permitted to enter the auction site with clutch purses that do not exceed 6.5x 4.5” or clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags that do not exceed 12×6 x12” (or one-gallon clear plastic freezer bags). Clear bags will be for sale near the auction entrance.
  • Physical distancing. Please follow directional signage and ground markings, which have been installed throughout the auction site to help guests better navigate common areas while practicing physical distancing. Plexiglass partitions have been added in select places where it is difficult to maintain distancing guidelines, such as the auction office and bidder bars.
  • Enhanced Cleaning/Sanitization On-site. Cleaning procedures will be enhanced throughout the auction site, including extra attention to frequently touched surfaces.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout the auction site.
  • New advanced filtration and air treatment technologies at WestWorld include bipolar ionization that “collects” airstream contaminants, ultraviolet lighting (which has been shown to eliminate 99 percent of pathogens in an airstream) and additional air exhaust systems that use 100 percent air from the outside.
  • Auction vehicles will be staged in open-air tents or well-ventilated buildings to maximize air flow.
  • Vehicle interiors will be cleaned and plastic will be placed on the driver’s seat, steering wheel and shifter of each vehicle.
  • Vehicle keys will be placed inside a UV sanitizer case between uses.
  • Bidder seating has been reconfigured with “pods” of nine seats: three rows of three chairs, suitable for accommodating a group of friends or family or allowing for suitable distancing between smaller parties when utilizing just the first and third rows.
  • The auction block. We respectfully request that the auction block be reserved for those who are bidding on the vehicle on offer at that time.
  • Cheers! Tier 1 bidder credentials come with a drink card. Guest passes (without drink cards) may be purchased separately – but your guests are welcome at the bidder bar!
  • Contactless cashiering is available and encouraged for anyone paying with a wire transfer and shipping their purchases. (Please email or call 480-421-6694 for more information or to set up your account in advance.) Reduced-contact procedures have also been implemented: Physically distanced tablets have been installed in the auction office that display purchase documents and allow the buyer to sign electronically with a stylus pen. Each tablet and pen will be sanitized after each use and copies of the documents will be emailed to the purchaser.
