Why is it so important to inspect an item?

Check the auction details page for that auction and it will give you inspection times and the location of the items. We always recommend an inspection before you decide to bid so you know exactly what condition the item is in.

The last thing you want is to bid on a black couch only to pick it up and find out it’s more of a navy blue!

Our amazing (yet also human) team are processing over 33,000 items a week and at times might not get it 100% on the money. So we say, come see us!

Queenslanders, just be aware that legally we cannot allow inspection on any vehicles on Sundays or public holidays at our Carrara facility as part of Queensland Legislation.

Sometimes auctions are online viewing only which means the items aren’t available to inspect in person. Remember to always bid what you are comfortable with!
