We were moving and decided to downsize some things.  We looked in the newspaper and found Murray Knapps ad buying furniture, china, etc.  So we called him and he came right away.  He said the best way to move our stuff was by public auction.  He came a few days later and we helped him wrap and pack.  He took a pickup load and he said the auction would be on Labour day weekend  at Comber and to come and bring your friends.  It would be the best weekend for an auction.  We went in the morning but there was no seats and our stuff was last to be auctioned. 

I am not able to stand that long so we left.  I had a friend there and she wanted some of our things so stayed till the end.  She said Murray must have had friends in the audience.  She would bid $100.00 for an item she would stand and had her hand up and he would let the item go for $40.00.  So even though she was yelling he would not acknowledge her.  Murray would say sold then look back at her.  She still stood with her hand up and he said to her it was over and done with and move on.  She bid up to $1000.00 on our royal Albert China set. 

It went for $2500.00 but she could not afford that so dropped out of the bidding.  We only received $450.00 for it from Murray Knapp. We had a 3 peice dining room set and she watched that go.  One lady offered $400 for one peice of the set he said no that it had to go together.  The set went for well over $1000.00 not sure of the exact amount.  We only received $400 of that for the entire set, he kept the rest.  Some articles she knew should be there but she couldn't even find them.  Murray Knapp is a cheat he is so flagrant with it that he doesn't even try to hide the fact.  How many more have been cheated this way?  His name should not be in good standing.  Thank you.

#1 Consumer Comment

Murray Knapp is NOTa ripp off

AUTHOR: regular - ()

I attend all of Murray's auctions and I have never seen China nor used living room sets command such prices.  In today's market you can't even give China away so if someone made 400 on it they should just run to the bank.  Auctions are like gambling, sometimes you win sometimes you loose.

AUTHOR: regular - ()

I attend everyone of his auctions and I have NEVER seen china nor livingroom sets go for that kind of money.  When you put things in auction it is a gamble.  Sometimes you win, sometimes you loose.  I have put things in Murray 's auction several times and :I have done well but on ocassion I did not.  AUCTIOS ARE A GAMBLE.
