21. Return Policy: We strive to be your trusted auction source with a unique auction and an industry-leading return policy. This policy only applies to our Weekly Household Online Auctions: all items won during consignment, liquidation Bulk, and or estate auction are considered As Is, Where Is, with no returns or exchanges. While we recommend inspecting all items before bidding, we understand that this being an online auction, is not always possible thus, we provide this return policy to help you have confidence in what you are bidding on here at The Dutch Goat Trading Company. All items in the Weekly Monday and Tuesday Household Online auction will fall under a Green, Yellow, or Red return policy.
Green: The auction winner has 30 days from the date of the auction closing date to return an item, with no restocking fee, for being different from what is described in the auction title and/or description. (e.g., the item is listed with an accessory, but that accessory was not included, the item was listed as working but did not actually work). Simply bring in the item within 30 days of the auction close for a full refund. Additionally, the winner of an item on this auction may return anything in this category for any reason within 14 days and only pay a $5 restocking fee; the item must be in the same condition in which it was listed.
Yellow: The auction winner will need to inspect their item
upon pickup to return an item, with no restocking fee, for being different from what is described in the auction title and/or description. (e.g., the item is listed with an accessory, but that accessory was not included, the item was listed as working but did not actually work). Simply inspect the item when picking it up to identify if a refund is needed. Once the item leaves our building, it cannot be returned and is considered "where is, as is."
Red: Highly Recommend inspecting these items before bidding. Items listed in this category are considered "Where is, as is" with no returns or exchanges. Items in this category can only be refused if it was listed with an incorrect title or description. Although we attempt to list all relevant information, an item is not incorrectly listed if the information is excluded from a listing but assumed by the bidder. (e.g., an item is used, but it is not specified as to be new or used, and the winning bidder assumed it to be new). Mystery boxes or miscellaneous bins will also be included in this category. Should a winner of an item want to return an item in any return category listed correctly but is now in a different condition, we may take that item back on consignment and relist it in our consignment auction. Consignment fees will then apply.
