stay away from electronics esp ipods and game systems. stay away from returns and salvage cause they probably will not work as they are sold as is, read the terms and fine print.
only buy where there is a detailed Manifest of the items- when people do not want to tell you in detail what you are getting there is often a reason
Do your research on any seller you are thinking about bidding with.
Make sure to check shipping cost PRIOR to place a bid. Also there is a 5% of winning bid for buyer's premium.
As a winning bidder, you pay the final auction price, a Buyer's Premium, and appropriate shipping fees, which are collected by us prior to goods being shipped from the seller's location.
What is a Buyer's Premium?
A Buyer's Premium is a standard auctioneering fee that helps cover the cost associated with sourcing products, marketing auctions, running the marketplace and managing services such as payment collection, fulfillment, shipping and inspection. Unless otherwise stated in the auction, our standard Buyer's Premium is 5% of the final bid price.
Ive had some good and bad deals with Liquidation.com. If you really want to buy on that site, you have to make sure you buy items NEW. Stay away from items marked RETURNS. As in the small print of that site, they state they cannot guarantee that these items work. I bought a whole box full of electronic goods from a RETURNS auction, and got them sent to Australia. The whole process took 3 weeks, and when they arrived, not one of the items worked. They were all returned to liquidation because they were faulty. Wont be doing that again. But on the other hand, i bought some other items NEW, again they took just over 3 weeks to arrive, and were perfect, sold them at a small profit. Not sure it was worth the 3 week wait though. The shipping on both auctions was $300 so that does eat into the old profit margin a tad, but at least i didnt loose any money.
