Q. What protection do we have on auction sales?

A. Unfortunately due to the nature of our Auctions there are no guarantees to the condtion of any goods you bid on. Bidders at live auctions are not considered consumers and therefore the Sales of Goods Act 1979 and The Consumer Rights Act 2015 do not apply to sales through auction.

Q. Are there any guarantees or warranties on your vehicles?

A. Motorbike Auctioneers do not guarantee any of the vehicles nor do we provide warranties for any goods purchased at auction. In some circumstances listings can be made by third parties, in such a case we hold no responsibility or liability for any guarantee, warranty or offer that was made by such party.
