We may withhold delivery of any item until you have paid everything owing to us.

Any collection times specified by us in an online auction in the Sale Overview, Item Page or otherwise are estimates only and we will not be liable to you for any loss or damage you suffer as a result of our failure to comply with such details.

In particular where items are not held by us on our premises, you must strictly observe and comply with collection times and arrangements specified by us in the Sale Overview, Item Page. Your failure to strictly adhere to those collection times and arrangements, may result in the item being removed from those premises and although we will exercise all reasonable care on your behalf, we do not have custody or control of those items and accordingly we will not be liable for the unavailability of the item or the fact that no refund of the purchase price is made to you.

Unless outlined in the Sale Overview, delivery of bulky goods (for example large TVs, furniture, and whitegoods) assumes ground floor front door delivery.

Whenever you visit any place where goods are stored to inspect or collect them, you must comply with:

any law relating to occupational health and safety;

We reserve the right to sell the item (if it was purchased for more than $100.00) upon terms we determine to be reasonable, if you do not collect the item within 14 days of a sale.

If we sell the item in accordance with clause 8.1i we will refund the proceeds of sale to you, less Buyer's Premium, a storage charge based on a fee of $5.00 per day of storage and an administration fee of $40.00.

Because of the administration costs involved, we reserve the right to sell or otherwise dispose of an item purchased for $100.00 or less, without refund to you.

All items to be delivered must be delivered to a specified premises and receipt must be acknowledged by signature. After you provide delivery location details, you must not:

contact any carrier we use directly and authorise them to deliver the items to another address; or

arrange for collection from the carrier directly.

If you contravene this clause you will waive any right you may have had to personal delivery, and you will be deemed to have accepted all responsibility for any loss of or damage caused to the items by delivery, and you release us from any liability for any loss or damage caused as a result.

Title in any item will only pass to you when we receive the Invoice Amount in cleared funds.

If the item is withheld by us in accordance with the User Agreement, risk in the item will pass to you at such time as you would have been able to collect the item had we not been holding it.
