If you’ve ever been to an auction, you know it can be a hectic place. People in every corner are standing, furniture is piled high, and the auction men are struggling to reach items in the other room. The clerk announces the items that are up for bid, but it’s impossible to see what’s on the other side of the room.
When buying an item at an auction, it’s important to understand the risks. Often, the items sold at an auction have no guarantee of their authenticity, and the auction company can’t take responsibility for this. Also, if an item is in a box, it hasn’t been examined and may be damaged or missing a few pieces. In such cases, bidders will not be refunded.
