Tired of broken and missing parts

Every time I've bid and won an item there has been an issue...most often it's broken or there are important missing parts (more than a screw). Last time the part would have cost $70 to replace when I bid $65 for the item.

User's recommendation: Avoid.

Lied about valuable items gone missing

At my pickup of an auction I won, I was informed of a mistake on their part and I was told that the owner of the estate mistakingly forgot to leave the only 2 valuable items in the lot. It was a Dresden figure and 3 Wolfe original sculptures. If this was true or not ( as I find it hard to believe with those two items being missing), Ive Heard of this happening there before. With their 18% buyers premium, this place is awful and stay far away from them.

User's recommendation: Stay away from Timewell.

Interaction with this auctioneer

Stay Clear! I contacted Timewell to inquire about a set of men's watches they were selling online. My question was simple. "Do they wind and run?" The response was "being sold as found". Well that doesn't answer the question and seems to be misleading on purpose. How hard is it to check, or do they know that the watches don't work? After reading some other reviews around the web, I won't bid, not worth the risk.

User's recommendation: Buying from them is not worth the risk.

Timewell is a JOKE!

Wednesday May 23, New Dundee auction. So the auction begins..with many fine and valuable antique furniture pieces and much much more! As I keep trying to bid higher pretty much right from the beginning, the host (Timewell) internet connection goes down. As lots keep closing and the server keeps dissconecting me, I call Timewells owners and ask them, is there something wrong with your internet? She sais yes..then I ask her, are you going to pause it, or restart it so people can bid? Lol...she sais NO! She is NOT going to do anything about it but to wait for the server to get reconnected. When I told her that the site accepted my higher bids on items and then were sold at lower bids, she said oh well you should put your high bid on items at the beginning...?..?? Does that even make sense? So basically at least the 6 things I was bidding on were all sold at half of what I would have paid for them not to mention who ever else got screwed out of a fair bidding auction...The victim here is the client who hired these bozos to get the highest value for her charised and valuable belongings..They simply did not give a *** about their client getting fair value for her items. Shame on you Timewell for your unprofessional disscusting business practice. GFY!!

Timewell Auctions St thomas Ontario

They use to be good then it slowed down and now they are selling anything that comes in the door including items that should have been in the garbage nothing like buying moldy musty stinky items .Even if they know an item is broke it gets sold as all sales are as is Even incorrect descriptions are allowed .You get this from the owner "don't bid too much and you wont get burnt as bad" if you call you more than likely will get the owner hes a miserable guy that should retire maybe this is why hes not at the auctions anymore
