5. Receive payment

L & M give the buyer 7 days to return any faulty electrical items. Due to this, it may take up to 2 weeks to receive payment. We do our utmost to ensure that payment is made as quickly as possible. No payment will be made before the Thursday following the sale next sale. It is imperative that you ensure all your details are correct. All payments over £75 will be made by cheque. Cash MAY be available for smaller amounts, although there is no guarantee of this. With the payment, you will also receive a receipt giving you a breakdown of what sold and what didn’t. Study this and decide the course of action for the unsold items. Generally, we will run all items for two auctions before we request for them to be withdrawn or reserves altered.

L & M do not charge a lotting fee, a fee for placing reserves on items, or any VAT. We only charge 15% commission on items that sell over £14, otherwise we have a minimum £2 commission per lot. We do not accept reserves on items below £5.
