A bid by any person shall be conclusive proof that the person has made him or her self acquainted with these conditions of sale and has agreed to be bound by them.
The vast majority of items auctioned by Police Auctions Canada are derived from law enforcement agencies, asset management, and other public municipalities. Typically these items are seized, forfeited, or found, and should be considered "used" unless otherwise noted. We are not privy to specifics of where the items originated and therefore we cannot respond to inquiries of claim.
A description and picture(s) accompanies each auction listing. While we endeavor to accurately describe and portray each item, we do not own or use the vast majority of goods we auction, and as a result, cannot supply the type of information a buyer might expect from a manufacturer or owner.
Do not make assumptions regarding any features, functionality, or additional parts/accessories not pictured or described. When we state a descriptive word (i.e. good, fair) about an item, it is only our opinion and, as opinions may vary, we will not be called upon for this opinion. The original manufacturers for some items may consider the item old or out of date and therefore no longer supported. It is important to note that jewelry certificates and assessments reflect the retail replacement value provided for insurance purposes, and should not to be confused with the retail price. The certificates are based on the hypothetical price a retailer may charge to custom-make or duplicate an item. It is necessary for us to obtain the information, to have identified and confirmed the markings and stones, etc. by a certified geologist, solely for the purpose of listing description details.

Auto Bid Extend: If a bid is placed during the last minute of an auction, the auction time will be extended automatically for an additional 1 minute and continue to extend by 1-minute intervals if another bid is placed. This extended time will give bidders a chance to challenge bids placed in the final countdown of an auction. The auctions will close and a winner declared when the bidding activity stops.
