There is NO other auction ANYWHERE in the world who auctions two to three THOUSAND individual unique items every WEEK as we do! The vast majority of our customers (over 99%) fully recognize just how difficult that is to do at all, and ever more so, how difficult it is to do that as well as we do, with as few mistakes and as well-run a system to list, photograph, auction, pack and ship all these items we have, and every week we get quite a few complimentary emails from happy customers.

But there is a tiny percentage of our customers (less than 1%) who over and over find fault with what we do. It might be that we described a one-sheet as having a one inch tear in a border, and they measured it and found it to be 1.25 inches! Or it might be that they took a month to pay, and then are mad because we then no longer charge them our flat rate shipping charge, even though that is clearly stated everywhere. Or it might be that we packed up all their purchases over a four week period from 10 different auctions and emailed them their shipping options, but they have bought one more item and they want us to re-open the package, add that in and then get new shipping options, even though we already waited 28 days to combine!

We have observed that these problems almost always occur with that very tiny subset of our customers, those who are very difficult to please at all stages of the auction process. We think it is fine for them to demand this extra level of personal care in their orders, but we could never continue to auction as many items as we do if we had to take the time to give this extra personalized service. We know there are other dealers out there who only sell a fraction of we do, and many of them can and do have the time to take care of such special requests, and we feel that it is quite possible these sorts of people would be happier ordering from such dealers.

99% of our customers NEVER have even a single problem when ordering from us, and we thank them all so very, very much!
