#1 UPDATE Employee

Customer bought AS-IS Customer Return Items (Not New)

AUTHOR: Jacques - (U.S.A.)

We are familiar with this customer's situation as we discussed with him in person this past Friday.

Unfortunately it appears that this is a case of buyer's remorse resulting from a lack of understanding about what he was buying.

This person purchased several iPads at our monthly live auction last week. In accordance with the merchandise we typically sell (liquidation goods), our auction lots are also liquidation goods, typically customer returns, untested and sold as-is. We always list the condition of the goods both on a sticker on the actual goods, and in our auction catalog which each buyer receives when they arrive to the auction.

These lots specifically stated "Customer Returns" on the label and in the catalog, meaning they are not new - not tested - not guaranteed to be in working condition. Customer returns are typically products that have been purchased by an end user and returned to the original store for a number of reasons. We always recommend that people who purchase customer return products be prepared to test and/or repair items as necessary.

We take the appropriate measures to educate customers on these types of goods and to provide written information wherever possible. To this end, this customer was provided with an explanation of the condition of the goods on the auction catalog itself (the document used to choose the lots he wanted to purchase). In addition, he signed our "Conditions of Purchase Agreement" that states that all customer return goods are sold as-is, are untested and are not guaranteed to be in working order.

We always recommend that our customers be open to testing and repairing and if they are not, we recommend that they do not purchase customer returns as it is not for everyone. We appreciate that not everyone is willing or equipped to work with such goods, which is why we take care to ensure the condition is clearly listed on any item being sold through our warehouse, website or auctions.

We did not automatically offer a credit because the goods were sold as advertised, in this case "as-is customer returns." If we had advertised them as new/working and they were not, indeed it would be a different situation.

That being said, all is not lost with this purchase.

The customer expressed he tried to turn them on but they did not work. In a case like this, it is a good idea to take the items to a local repair shop. We have a contact with Mac Fusion in Long Beach that can repair Apple products for a very decent fee. There are hundreds of other non-Mac repair shops throughout the area. The customer may need to invest an additional small amount of money to restore the tablets to working condition - or he may have a couple of units that are not repairable. This is the nature of the liquidation business and we are always transparent and forthcoming about this BEFORE any sale is made.

We are not here to deceive anybody but we do need people to meet us half way and read what they sign, listen when we speak and look at the label on the actual item they are buying to see the condition they are in.

We have been in business over 10 years and owe our success to our customers. Our goal is not to make a fool out of anyone but to establish long-lasting relationships with everyone who walks through our doors.

Admittedly, the fact that you had to wait 45 minutes to speak with a supervisor is not acceptable. We will take the necessary measures to ensure we provide more prompt service in the future - thank you for bringing that to our attention and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

However, claims that we are fooling people are unfair. We are transparent, we advertise all product conditions on our website, we provide customers with extensive resources, articles and information on how to make one with non-perfect liquidation goods, our team is available 24/7 to respond to customer inquiries and concerns - our doors are always open.

Should you wish to discuss your issue with us further, please do get in touch by phone or email anytime. You can also come in to see us in person if you prefer. We will not be able to refund and take back the goods (as per the Purchase Agreement that was signed) but we can certainly work with you to ensure that you recuperate any significant loss incurred from this purchase on future orders. We are not going anywhere and are always open to rectifying this situation moving forward. We do however, ask that you at least TRY to repair and resell them. You will be surprised to find that there indeed is a market for everything - you just have to be a little creative with it.

In the future, we do strongly recommend that you read any documentation provided about the products before buying them, and listen to any oral instructions being given by the salesperson or auctioneer that may be giving you valuable insight as to the condition of the goods.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
