Return Policy

Origin and Condition of Items

The majority of items auctioned by Property Room on the Website derive from law enforcement agencies and other governmental agencies. Typically seized, forfeited, or found, you should consider such items "used" unless otherwise noted.

A description and picture accompany each auction listing. Any such description represents Property Room’s good faith opinion of the condition or other characteristics or properties of the item, based upon a visual inspection of the item and such other activities deemed appropriate by Property Room. While Property Room endeavors to accurately describe and portray each item, such assessment is subjective in nature and Property Room’s opinion concerning the condition or other characteristics or properties of an item is not a representation or warranty. Property Room does not own or use the vast majority of goods auctioned, and as a result can not supply the type of information you might expect from a manufacturer or owner. Accordingly, an assessment by the purchaser or any third party of the condition of the item may not match Property Room’s opinion.

Do not make assumptions regarding any features, functionality or additional parts not pictured or described. In addition, note that the original manufacturers for all items listed for auction may consider the item old or out-of-date and therefore no longer supported. We can not accept return requests in these occurrences.

All communications related to any item purchased in a transaction must be directed to Property Room and not the manufacturer of the item.

Your Responsibility

You assume responsibility for auctions you have won. Property Room will generally only accept returns if it made a manifest error, such as shipping the wrong item or shipping the incorrect quantity of items or if Property Room determines that the item sold is Prohibited Property (as defined in the User Agreement). Property Room may, in its discretion, accept certain other returns, provided that a 15% restocking fee may apply to such discretionary terms and Property Room will not approve discretionary returns of the following items under any circumstances: (1) any item with a condition rating of "Fair" or lower, (2) trading/sports cards, coins and other "loose" collectables, or (3) any item identified in the listing as "Untested". With respect to discretionary returns, Property Room May change the criteria upon which it determines whether to accept a discretionary return and no practice or course of conduct shall create any obligation on the part of Property Room to accept any return other than for manifest error or Prohibited Property.
