Ownership is not transferred from the Seller to the Company at the point of collection: ownership is only transferred after the gizmo(s) has been tested, our offer (revised or otherwise) has been accepted and funds have been successfully transferred to the Seller.

The Seller warrants that they are not handing over dangerous or restricted items. The Company accepts at face value the Seller’s description of the gizmo(s) and the personnel (employees/agents working on the Company’s behalf) collecting are not responsible for checking the contents or accuracy of the package description. The Seller is wholly responsible for any damage and/or loss arising from despatching or delivering dangerous or restricted items.

We do not take any responsibility for consequential loss arising from free collection, postage or walk-in delivery of your gizmo(s). We do not take any responsibility for any loss of data or loss of business leading to financial loss and/or non-financial loss arising from handling during collection, transit and testing of the gizmo(s).

Free Collection

We do not cover the whole of the UK at the moment: we will collect your gizmo(s) from selected areas in England. You can contact us to check if you are covered by the service.

We are not a courier service: we will use third parties.

Note:
We wish to clarify that we can cancel free collection at any time at our discretion. Free collection is also subject to a minimum value set at our discretion. We will contact you to confirm and verify the order before we arrive for collection. We will cancel the collection of your gizmo(s) if we are unable to confirm and verify the order.

Cooling-off Period:
After receiving your gizmo, we will test it. We will pay the money to your account as soon as possible, usually on the same or the next working day if the price we are willing to pay is the same as that shown on our website. However, if after testing, the price we are willing to pay is less or more than that indicated, we will send you an email with our revised offer. If we do not receive any reply within 5 working days of our proposal email, we will consider this as an acceptance and transfer the money to your account.

Stolen Gizmos:
We will run a security check on the gizmo when we receive it. If we find out that the gizmo is blocked, stolen or lost we will inform you.
