Dear Valued Customers,

The Malaysia Government has imposed a restricted movement order nationwide from 18 to 31 March as part of the nation’s serious measure to contain the COVID-19 outbreak. The health and well-being of our customers and our team remain our highest priority. We would like to announce that our KUALA LUMPUR and PENANG offices will be temporarily closed from 18th March (Wednesday) until 31st March 2020 (Tuesday). Please be assured that MNP follows stringent protocols for safety and hygiene.

While we are physically not visible, our spirit will always be there for you. As such, our business operation is operating as usual through telephone, email, messages and any other mode of online contact.

Hotline: 017-400 6661/ 017-407 6661

The restricted movement order means that we will not be able to carry out any event or auction event that involves public gathering. It is a difficult decision but MNP is currently working through a restructuring of its forthcoming auctions, as follow:
