BUYVINTAGE ONLINE VINTAGE AUCTIONS

Why Buy through ‘BuyVintage’ Online Auctions?

This website is an auction catalogue and I sell through ebay. My ebay name is Groovydubber and here is a link to my auctions – PLEASE CLICK HERE.

If the item that interests you is not currently on ebay, please contact me directly as below

1. Everyone connected with my business rides vintage bikes themselves. We’re longtime enthusiasts and collectors, and do everything we can to make your purchase a good experience.

2. With BuyVintage Online Auctions, you have the advantage of buying at an auction from the comfort of your own home. I also help arrange deliveries (as cheap as £50 for most locations in the UK), so this really is the ultimate ‘armchair shopping’ experience.

3. Unlike auction houses, there is NO ‘buyers premium.’ The sale price is the total price you pay.

4. Auction houses do not own the vehicles they sell. But each vehicle here is either owned by me or it’s owned by someone I know personally and deal with regularly.

5. Unless it is for spares/restoration at no reserve, I provide a comprehensive description and as many photos as possible.

6. Unlike auction houses, there is no ‘bidding off the wall.’ Ebay rules are very strict on this: all bids are genuine. If there are no bids until the end (and there’s no reserve) your first bid wins the auction.

7. The auction is run by experienced ebay powerseller Groovydubber (Colin) with good feedback upholding the strictest trading ethics. Colin has been in the vintage vehicle business for over 30 years.

8. Finding, buying and collecting these vehicles is hard work! Checking them over, fixing them, researching information, and adding all the information to this website is very time-consuming. This is not simply a profit-motivated venture, but a labour of love. I have two simple ambitions – to provide the kind of auction I’d enjoy buying at myself, and to inspire fellow enthusiasts to take the plunge and buy a wonderful new (old) toy.

9. ANY QUESTIONS? Or if you’d just like to make contact, please email or phone Colin on 07866-126469 at any time (leave message if after 7-30pm). We are here to help you.

LEGAL LIABILITIES & CRANKY VEHICLES

1. REGISTER WITH EBAY: All auction run over a minimum of 10 days. So if you’re not already registered with ebay, this should give you sufficient time to register.

2. YOUR LEGAL LIABILITIES: All ebay rules apply. We’re nice guys, but this is our business and we’ve put a lot of hard work into this auction. We will not tolerate any time-waster. As in every auction –

EVERY BID IS A LEGAL CONTRACT TO PURCHASE.

WHEN YOU WIN, YOU BUY IT AT THAT SALE PRICE.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT BID.

3. If you want to buy one of these vintage vehicles as a present for a loved one, please phone or email at any time and I’ll assist in any way I can.

4. This is a registered business. I pay tax. Invoices are provided, as well as any vehicle history and documentation if available.

6. CRANKY & TEMPERAMENTAL: Remember that these are old vehicles. Just like their owners, they may get cranky and temperamental and often don’t want to start.

Cyclemotors in particular require a lot of attention; after standing for a few weeks they might need carbs cleaning etc. I can not guarantee that any 2-stroke in this auction will start immediately when you receive it!

You’ll need at least basic mechanical maintenance skills or a good local mechanic. If you’re not already familiar with the vehicles, the appropriate Owners Clubs offer good support and advice.

7. ANY QUESTIONS? Or if you’d just like to make contact, please email or phone Colin on 07866-126469 at any time (I turn my phone off after 7-30pm). I’m here to help you.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I’VE WON THE AUCTION?

Congratulations – You’ve got a wonderful new (old) toy!

1. PERSONAL CONTACT: The first thing to do when you’ve won? – Please email me your phone numbers so we can chat and discuss payment and delivery details. Personal contact with my customers is very important to me.

2. PAYMENT OPTIONS: Paypal, bank transfer, IBAN, cheque, cash.

**********************************************************************************

DELIVERY is NOT included in the auction sale:

I do everything we can to help get it to you as fast as possible. As this relies on 3rd party delivery companies, please remember WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE for delivery schedules! If you want it fast, you must collect it yourself.

All items must be paid for (eg cheques cleared) before collection or delivery.

UK – I can help arrange delivery for you. I try to keep prices to a minimum – only £50 part-load delivery for easily-accessible parts of UK. Scotland, Wales, Cornwall is extra.

*** Bear in mind that part-load means it takes longer to arrive. It’s collected when the firm is in our area and dropped to you when they are in yours. Average time 3 weeks. If you want it fast you’ll need to organize collection yourself.

INTERNATIONAL – I can also arrange crating and shipping for international customers. Road-transport for main parts of Europe is usually under €400. I use Chas Mortimer for this.

UNLESS IT IS INTERNATIONAL CRATING/SHIPPING you must pay the delivery company directly.

**********************************************************************************

If you have interesting old vehicles for sale at reasonable prices, I may also be interested. Please phone Colin in our Customer Service Dept – 07866-126469
