Along with including a comprehensive description and images of actual products, we offer the opportunity to view Lots and have a viewing period before the auction ends. If it is more convenient, we can arrange a videocall to facilitate your viewing.
As we act as an agent for the vendor we have have no prior knowledge of the condition of any Lot. As agents, we are not able to warranty anything as working as our clients will not accept any onwards liability (even if we know it is working).
Where we are aware of any fault, we will state this on the lot description. Where no faults are listed, it does not mean we are warranting the condition of a lot as faultless.
The price reflects the risk factor of purchasing at auction. Bidders are bidding on an ‘as is, where is” basis.
We are not able to offer any refund if a product is not in working condition.
