Important Information

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU BID:

We are a Commercial Auction Company delivering outstanding value stock to the UK and around the world. We specialise in sourcing bankrupt and wholesale clearance stock, enabling us to auction items far below the RRP.

On occasion we may unfortunately be unable to supply a won Lot for the following reasons:

  • An inaccurate stock list is received from the vendor
  • There is unexpected damage to goods when they arrive with us
  • Supplier default
  • Inaccuracies in bankruptcy stock files

We understand that this may be disappointing and will try to offer a suitable replacement where possible. If this is not possible, we will refund you for the unavailable Lot/s.

It is important to note that even with brand new items in full working order, the following will sometimes apply to auctioned Lots:

  • The product may be in generic, non-retail packaging due to being sourced direct from the manufacturer’s wholesale stocks
  • The packaging may be imperfect

For further information see our product Grading Guide below.

Covid-19 - Important update to our delivery and collection services due to the coronavirus pandemic:

Personal collection of orders from our premises is not currently possible, to prioritise the safety of our customers and staff. This includes collection by couriers on behalf of customers. During this time, we are providing a free delivery service to local customers who would otherwise collect from us. Applicable orders will have packing & shipping details removed from the invoice.

Our nationwide delivery service continues to operate. However, there may be some delays to services due to necessary Covid-safe adjustments to our operations.

Garden buildings and hot tubs. We are continuing to allow customers or haulage companies to collect these larger items. This will be strictly by appointment only - they must phone in advance to arrange it.

Some auctioned items are held off-site and must first be delivered to our premises by a third party before they are available for delivery. Lead times, where applicable, are provided in the Lot description(except for all Garden Buildings and Hot Tubs, which arrive approximately 8-10 weeks from receipt of payment).

Please also read the Shipping information which can be found under each individual Lot description.

We are not a retail company; therefore all sales sit outside of the standard consumer legislation. 

Multiple Lots: As a commercial auctioneer, many of our Lots will be sold in multiples. Any Lot with a quantity of 2 or more will be listed as such under the current bid price. This will mean that the bid price will be multiplied by the quantity, of which is further clarified before a bid is confirmed.

Final Price Calculator: The price that you bid is not the final price. All Lots marked ‘+ VAT’ are subject to 20% VAT on the hammer price, all Lots will be subject to Buyers Premium at 21%, and an internet service charge will be applied. The easiest way to calculate your total (minus shipping) is with our easy-to-use Final Price Calculator

Payment: You may need to pay a deposit which will form part of your final payment and will be detailed on your invoice when we request the outstanding amount. A pro-forma invoice will be sent, once the sale has been completed, which must be settled in full within 24 hours. If payment is not received within this time, additional charges may be incurred. We cannot accept payment by card over the phone. If you do not receive your invoice please send an email to invoices@haddonandjames.co.uk stating INVOICE NOT RECEIVED in the subject line. 

We reserve the right to charge storage on items where the invoice is outstanding after the allotted time: £1 per day for small items and £10 per day for large items such as garden buildings and hot tubs. 

Lot Descriptions: Wherever possible we will use actual photos of the lots, but we often need to use stock photos. Please read the descriptions carefully before bidding and check for the quality against our grading guide. 

Product Grading Guide

Each Lot will be listed with a grade (shown in the title/description) which will describe the condition of the item.

Brand New: This will include all brand new stock and can be expected to be in full working order.

Grade A: Can be considered as ‘good as new’ and expected to be in working order, unless otherwise stated within the product description. This may include manufacturer and factory refurbished items, usually (but not always) within the original packaging. Visible imperfections, which will not affect the overall functionality of the item, may be present (in the case of White Goods, visible imperfections will include dents, scuffs and scrapes). Brand new items may also be included where they are missing packaging and/or accessories.

Grade B: These items can be expected to be in working order, but may have blemishes or visible imperfections that do not affect the overall function. This may include factory refurbished goods (in the case of White Goods, visible imperfections will include dents, scuffs and scrapes). Brand new items may also be included, if they have cosmetic damage/imperfections that do not affect their performance. Items may be in the original or a generic box. Minor parts or accessories may not be present.

Grade C: This may include items showing signs of use. Items may not be in original packaging or the packaging may be missing. Accessories may be missing and the items may have visible imperfections (in the case of White Goods, visible imperfections will include dents, scuffs and scrapes). Minor parts may not be present but generally the item will be functional, albeit some repairs/refurbishment may be required.

Grade U: This category will include unchecked customer returns, Lost and Found property, seized property, house clearance effects, new, used, faulty or damaged items, incomplete items and salvage stock (for spares/repairs).

The above is only a guide to what condition items can be expected to be in. It is not a guarantee that any item will match exactly the criteria above and purchasers are advised to enquire about graded items prior to bidding.

Please note: we make every effort to obtain realistic RRPs (Recommended Retail Prices) and ISPs (Internet Sales Prices) from either the Vendor, or genuine sources (eBay, Amazon, Large Retailers etc); however, these prices will fluctuate over time and we strongly recommend that the buyer fully researches this.

Contact: The most effective way to get in touch with us is by email. For any questions about upcoming auctions or Lots, please contact enquiries@haddonandjames.co.uk; for all queries regarding an invoice, please contact invoices@haddonandjames.co.uk quoting your invoice number and bidding number. We endeavour to answer all queries within 48 hours (except weekends & Bank Holidays), however this timescale may be extended during extremely busy periods.

5.1.1 you have authority to bind any business on whose behalf you use
our site to purchase Items; and

legislation, nor shall you hold yourself to be a consumer at any time.

6.1.1 you agree to adhere to these Terms and any document referred to
within them, as amended from time to time;

6.1.2 You agree that we are irrevocably authorised at all times whilst you
remain registered with us to charge your credit or debit card without
notice to you in order to maintain a minimum level of deposit up to
50% of your total bidding value, which may be subject to a higher
limit depending on factors including, but not limited to, your
bidding history and the value of any lot for the sale of Items that you
are, or you intend to, bid upon; and
6.1.3 you agree not to place any bid that you do not have sufficient funds
to purchase and acknowledge that, if your bid is successful at
auction in securing an Item, we reserve the right not to accept your
bid as constituting an offer to place an order if your minimum

will be enforceable by us as a method of maintaining adequate
protection in respect of any payment made or due by you to us.

process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your
bid to us. Please take the time to read and check your bid at each page of the
bidding process. Important information, many of our lots for sale include
multiple Items (for example, a lot marked x2 contains two Items, a lot
marked x 4 contains four Items or so forth). Therefore, if you successfully
secure the purchase of such a lot, your bid will be multiplied by the relevant
number of Items and the obligation is on you to ensure that you check how
many Items are included within a lot when placing a bid to avoid over-
purchasing an Item. No refund will be permissible in the event that you, by
your bidding actions, commit to over-purchase an Item. If you require any
further clarification, please contact us.

applicable, the approval of the vendor who placed the Item for sale
(including, but not limited to, failure to meet any reserve price);

6.4.3 if you placed the final highest bid ("Order"), we will confirm our
acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms your offer
to purchase the Items ("Confirmation"), which may be subject to us
having sufficient stock available to complete your Order. The
Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the
Confirmation and;

Items shall not be progressed further, unless your bid becomes the
final highest bid as a result of the application of this clause 6.4.
6.5 Any dispute regarding the bidding process will be determined by the
relevant auctioneer in his or her sole discretion and such determination will
be final and binding. The auctioneer may choose to repeat the auction.
6.6 If we are unable to supply you with an Item, for example because that Item
has sold out or is no longer available or because of an error in the price on
our site as referred to in clause 12.5, we will inform you of this by e-mail
and we will not process your purchase. If you have already paid for the
Items, we will credit you the full amount including any delivery costs
charged within 28 days.

registration with us. If necessary, you may be prevented from bidding in
future auctions. For further information, we recommend that you refer to the
terms and conditions of the relevant platform host.

change in VAT takes effect.

and unmistakeable error, and could reasonably have been recognised by you as such,
we may cancel your purchase and credit you any sums you have paid within 28days.

is a deliberate forgery, you must follow the process below:

forgery; and
12.6.3 if we are satisfied that the Item(s) is a forgery, we will rescind the sale and
credit you the price paid for the Item(s), save that in the event you did not notify us of
your suspicions in sufficient time for us to prevent payment for the Item(s) being
passed to the vendor of the Item(s), we cannot credit you the price paid for the Item(s)
and we shall have no further liability to you. We will nevertheless offer reasonable
assistance to you in respect of any claim you wish to bring against the vendor of the
Item(s).

us as was described, unopened and auctioned to you;
12.7.4 if you notify us after the 14 day cooling off period, we will offer you credit to
use within our auction
12.7.5 this credit will be applied to your account for future auctions, and any credits
thereafter will be credited again back as credit to you

transfer and online payment link for debit and credit cards. There are
some credit cards, for instance Amex, that we do not accept.

occurring during this period. All items stored by us shall be at your
risk.

14.2 If you fail to comply with these conditions, any deposit paid by you
shall be forfeited to us from which we will deduct from it a sum
equivalent to 20% of the final invoice value to cover all just expenses,
storage costs and any other costs which we may have incurred for any
losses suffered as a result of your breach under the Contract. Such sums
will be applied by us towards any sums owing, without regard to any
directions from you, or your agent, whether express or implied as to
how such payments should be applied.

14.3 We shall be relieved of our contractual obligations to the extent that the
performance thereof is prevented, frustrated, impeded or delayed
directly or indirectly by or in consequence of any default by you. In
such circumstances, the items shall be re-listed for sale by auction and
the deficiency (if any) arising upon the re-sale together with expenses
of it shall be due as a debt from you in default of the first sale.
14.4 In the event a debt remains owing to us following any deductions from
sums held, we reserve the right to refer all relevant data to a third party
for the lawful and legitimate purpose of recovering any such sums from
you. Please refer to our Privacy Policy on our website in relation to

17.1 We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay
in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is

caused by an Event Outside Our Control. An Event Outside Our
Control is defined below in clause 17.2.

17.2 An "Event Outside Our Control" means any act or event beyond our
reasonable control, including without limitation non-performance or
delayed performance by our suppliers, subcontractors or carriers
(including, without limitation, delays in production, loading, shipping
and customs and clearance issues), strikes, lock-outs or other industrial
action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack
or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or
preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake,
subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or

17.3.1 we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you;

and

17.3.2 our obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time
for performance of our obligations will be extended for the
duration of the Event Outside Our Control. Where the Event
Outside Our Control affects our delivery of Items to you, we will
arrange a new delivery date with you after the Event Outside Our
Control is over.; and

17.3.3 Where the Event Outside Our Control affects our delivery of
Items to you, we will (at our sole discretion and depending upon
the extent to which delivery is affected) offer you one or more of
the following options:

(a) to arrange a new delivery date with you after the Event Outside Our Control is over; or
(b) to provide you with alternative Item(s) of equivalent quality and value as a replacement
for the Items which you have ordered; or
(c) to provide you with a credit note to the value of the Item(s) which you have ordered which
may be used against future purchases in full and final refund for the Items.
18. Communications between us
18.1 When we refer, in these Terms, to “in writing”, this will include e-mail.
18.2 Any notice or other communication given by you to us, or by us to you,
under or in connection with the Contract shall be in writing and shall be

delivered personally, sent by pre-paid first class post or other next working
day delivery service or e-mail.
18.3 A notice or other communication shall be deemed to have been received: if
delivered personally, when left at our registered office; if sent by pre-paid
first class post or other next working day delivery service, at 9.00 am on the
second Business Day after posting or if sent by e-mail, one Business Day
after transmission.
18.4 In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case
of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in
the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the
specified e-mail address of the addressee.
18.5 The provisions of this clause shall not apply to the service of any
proceedings or other documents in any legal action.

19. Other important terms
19.1 We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another
organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under
these Terms.
19.2 You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to
another person if we agree in writing.
19.3 This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights
to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third
Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.
19.4 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or
relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable,
the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
19.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these
Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in
doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and
will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we
do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not
mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
19.6 A Contract and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it
or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or
claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of
England.

jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection

with a Contract or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
