“RIP OFF MERCHANTS!!”

Written on: 12/07/2014 by izzieb (5 reviews written)

DO NOT buy from this rip off site. It really isn't worth the stress. They are supposed to be a police auction, however they don't run it like police departments should be run that's for sure! I paid within days, way back between 5th and 7th June, it is now over a month later and nothing has arrived! Four items (all £4.99 postage for rubbish jewellery) and the so called customer services person, is rude and says I must 'actually read their terms' about 28 days which it is well within?? What??… Read Full Review

I agree. They took my money through nochex and nothing arrived. They charge a fortune for postage, the so called customer services manager - is another waste of space - nochex don't give a toss either as they are in cahoots with them and don't give a damn about getting your money back. Eventually I got the total scrap through my door - literally, broken rubbish! I'm furious and disgusted that they get away with it - they also bid on their own items to get the price up I'm sure!

“AVOID AVOID AVOID”

Written on: 09/05/2014 by Andreaa132 (1 review written)

Bought an unframed limited print, idiots stuffed it in an ordinary envelope and posted it with no DO NOT BEND markings. Arrived folded several times, resulting in creases in picture. Demanded a refund and was promised a cheque in post. Cheque never received. AVOIS this auction site unless you are collecting. … Read Full Review

“Absolute rubbish”

Written on: 17/09/2013

If I can save ONE person from interacting with theis company, writing this review would be worth it. Do NOT purchase from this site! You always get bid up to your maximum bid, and then they can take up to 28 WORKING DAYS to deliver AFTER threats to involve the media and police!… Read Full Review

After 3months of chasing I… Read Full Review

“Terrible site! Terrible customer service”

Written on: 09/01/2013 by mully67 (1 review written)

I bought a necklace from them last week. They obviously have a very slick photographer. It was made to look good quality, substantial, thick. I paid a lot of money for it. When it arrived, honestly, it was thin, tatty...fit for the bin. Don't be fooled by the fact that it is run via the Police. You would assume that meant decency and integrity. WRONG! I called them. Nothing back. So I emailed the guy who deals with enquiries- Chris Leach. He was rude. Aggressive. Stock answer, after stock… Read Full Review

“crooked”

Written on: 20/09/2012

basically with respect to the jewellery the police give you extremely limited information, maybe you´ll get the size and the hallmark but no weight, and the way the auction is set up, any bids placed within 10 minutes of the auction end will extend the auction by ten minutes, giving people the opportunity to raise their bids. Now what raises my eyebrows with this is that there is nothing to stop the people (police) to have themselves a set of scales with them to weigh and estimate the value of… Read Full Review

“Idea ok in principle. ”

Idea ok in principle.
The admins should sort out their server before advertising the site to the general public in my opinion...
Bit like policing in general needs a good sort out and restructure. I do not recommend Bumble Bee Auctions until the server is sorted out… Read Full Review

An excellent system which recycles and is environmentally friendly. It opens up the vast property stores to a world audience 24/7.

Over 50,000 auctions to date. It is a bit more of an open club than an auction… Read Full Review
