WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?

THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS
You cannot pick and choose which items to pay for when you come for your won auction items. You must pay for your ENTIRE order
WHAT IF I DO NOT PAY FOR MY ORDER AND PICK UP ON TIME?
If an invoice is left unpaid and not picked up by the deadline the account will automatically be temporary suspended and the items re-listed. The bidder will then be required to pay the 15% restocking fee off the final invoice amount that was left unpaid in order to re-instate their account. Once the account has been suspended the bidder will no longer be allowed to bid, purchase, or pick-up any items until this restocking fee is paid.
HOW DO I PAY (METHODS OF PAYMENT)?
1. This can be done in person at our retail location.
We accept Cash, Debit and Credit (Mastercard & Visa). E-transfers are also accepted but they need to be cleared before any items can leave the location.
2. We no longer accept online or over the phone payments.
Please contact us via site message or phone to inform us if you need to do an E-transfer
IS THERE ANY OTHER CHARGES WHEN I PAY FOR MY ITEMS?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! Bidding is completely FREE! No scams or buying bids, what you win your item for is what you pay + the standard 10% buyers premium + HST.
All items up for auction are subject to the 10% buyers premium being added to the winning bid amount which constitutes the final purchase price.
Example: $40 winning bid. + 10% premium = $4 ($44 final purchase price + 13% HST) = $49.72
WHAT IF I WOULD LIKE TO REFUSE AN ITEM BECAUSE I CHANGED MY MIND?
Most auctions do not accommodate this request but we allow refusal of a won item if a restocking fee is paid off the total bid amount which is the winning bid amount (+ the 10% buyers premium). This will give you the total bid amount. 15% of that amount is our restocking fee.
Won item for $50
10% Buyers Premium is $5
Total Bid amount will be $55
15% of $55 would be your restocking fee for that one item $8.25

IF YOU CAN'T PICK UP WITHIN OUR 3 DAY TIME FRAME DO NOT BID!
DO I HAVE TO SCHEDULE A PICK-UP BEFORE I COME?
While scheduling a pick-up is not mandatory, we highly recommend it as this allows us to try and prepare your order ahead of time. This would minimize your wait time when you come to our store to pick-up. If you are interested in scheduling a pick-up time, it can be done by phoning us for fastest response or an internal site message.
WHAT DO I NEED WHEN I COME PICK-UP?

WE DO NOT DO BUYER REMORSE RETURNS, WE OFFER A 14 DAY WARRANTY ON ANY ITEMS THAT DO NOT LIVE UP TO OUR LISTING (FULL MONEY BACK)
We stand by the items we sell and because of that we supply an in-house warranty on everything sold, unless stated AS-IS.
Warranty applies for...
Any items that have a malfunction from time of purchase, was damaged and not described, missing parts and not indicated or was listed incorrectly.
To be granted a return we must be contacted within 14 days explaining the issue.
This can be done by contacting us via internal message (top right of the screen *green button*)
Once a return has been approved, the item will be replaced if a duplicate is available, we will offer a negotiated discount if the bidder would like to still keep the item or process a full refund. A bidder can't deny a replacement if one is available.
Any physical damage caused by improper handling or use by the customer will result in automatic refusal for a refund and will void our 14 day warranty.
Any malfunctions caused by improper use by the customer will also be denied.
We will also deny a return if the bidder did not properly take the time to view and read the listing correctly. It is the bidders sole responsibility to fully read each listing and look at all photos as we put a lot of time into trying to be as accurate in our inspection and listing process. If a listing indicated an issue in the condition notes or included photos of the issue the return will be refused.
We do NOT accept returns based on buyers remorse (You do not like the item, wasn't what you needed, clothing/shoes didn't fit or changed your mind)
Once the warranty time period has exceeded no refunds or exchanges will be granted regardless of the issue or situation. There are NO exceptions. Once the warranty period has fully passed, we no longer hold anymore responsibility for the items sold.
Please remember we are only human and deal with a large volume of products that need to be listed within a limited time frame. We appreciate your understanding if we miss an issue during the listing/inspecting process. If this does occur, we will resolve it for you!
