Some sellers agree to use an escrow service. For a fee, generally 5 percent of the cost of the item paid by the buyer, an escrow service accepts payment from the buyer via check, money order or credit card. The service releases the money to the seller only after the buyer receives and approves the merchandise. It helps protect buyers from ending up empty-handed after paying their money. Using an escrow service can delay the deal. As with any business transaction, investigate the escrow service's reputation before signing on to the service.
Many police forces across the UK sell on loot which they've seized. And because this isn't widely known about – and because the police sell on items they'd otherwise have to store or dispose of – you could bag real bargains. For example, we spotted a kids' bike for 99p (collection only), a classical guitar for £14 (incl delivery) and an Armani watch for £15 (collection only).

Selling itself on how buyers can enjoy an 89% discount on certain listings and being the “number 1 discount auction site on the internet”, MadBid certainly pulls in the buyers, which is great for anyone selling on the site. Asides discounts of up to 89% to entice sellers, other key features of MadBid include safe payment portals, benefiting both the seller and buyer, and support through phone, live chat and email.  Though seller should be aware, only brand new, sealed products can be sold on MadBid, meaning second-hand goods can’t be listed.

As the action at public auctions has grown hotter, the cars have grown shadier. "I've personally seen cars with over 300,000 miles on their clocks rolled back to 120,000 and sold as 'Miles Exempt' meaning no guarantee of mileage," he says. "Most of the cars at a public auction are the worst trade-ins or very rough repos." And as in a government auction, you can't drive a public auction vehicle before you bid on it.

If property belonging to or associated with the owner is any type of firearm, please be advised that the timeline for property release/retrieval will be extended. For safety and security reasons, a background check will be completed on the owner and/or the person designated as Power of Attorney.

If any firearm has been identified among your property, please provide the Property Room with sufficient individual information about yourself and/or the individual with Power of Attorney authority to complete the background check. If the background check determines either that the owner or the Power of Attorney is prohibited by law from possessing a firearm, it will not be released. This process should generally extend the release or retrieval time by a few days.

"So what do you really want to do?" Winkler asked. I told him I wanted to be an auctioneer. Then he gave me the preamble to a speech that he also gave to tons of other people in my shoes: "If you will it, it is not a dream." That's what got me to pick up the phone and begin haunting several nearby auto auctions for months on end. And it truly sucked at first. But thanks to the Fonz, I was already living my dream.

I know better. I know that I should read reviews before I become active on an auction (or any) web site. I let myself down this time, did not read reviews, and this site is a true scam. All I can say is, DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THIS SITE! I agree with everything negative said in these other reviews. I indicated one star on the overall rating only because there is nothing lower.

The bidding for each auction closes at the scheduled time. In the case of sales of multiple lots, the participants with the highest bids at the close of the auction are obligated to buy the items.

I. agree completely. Not only that, if you ever visited a Goodwill Store, you may have noticed that there are no longer any Name Brand or quality merchandise available for sale. Instead they have pulled all Name Brand or more expensive items and now list these types of items ONLY on their auction site that has serious issues with listings, buyer protection and seller follow through. For a company making millions you’ d think they would let their store customers find some great products and deals, too. But you can’t because they’re all on the auction site and you have to take a chance of ever receiving your item or getting a refund, which of course, you will be on own attempting to either!

1. You're not used to the process. It may sound like an ordinary auction, but it's not. There are rules that need to be followed, plus the fact that you're practically dealing with the government. Your fear and awkwardness can definitely affect your bidding decision. To ensure that you will be able to bid properly, get yourself comfortable not only with the auction procedures but also with the people around you. They normally have practice auctions. It's ideal if you can attend at least one of them. You may also try to observe real government auctions and take note of how veterans bid for these cars.
