Liquidation.com - Its a Scam!!
PLAINFIELD, MISSOURI -- Well, where do I start?
I bought about 8 lots on liquidation.com over a 2 month period. Of those 8, 3 were more or less in the condition expected, 2 were total junk, and the other 3 somewhere in the middle. What you think your buying is most of the time not what you will get. When you buy returns which have been inspected and graded, they are still mostly junk. Missing and broken parts to them still seem to be in good condition. The difference between buying salvage and returns is minimal. If you try to dispute what you received, its almost impossible to win. I won a lot of 10 items out of which 8 were obviously in salvage condition. Since the lot was described as returns and on the inspection report all item were marked as in function condition, I decided to dispute it. I send pictures in and wrote them a long description what the problem is. About 5 days later my dispute was denied without explanation. When I called them I was basically told to blow off. The company which sells 90% of consumer electronics is called techexess. The rumor is that they are owned by liqudation.com. That was the company which I filed the dispute with. So you can't really win. You can reasonable expect that in any lot about 20-30% of the items won't be in working condition. But when they tell you that it has been tested and works while the truth is that it was impossible for it to have worked, its fraud.
So can you make money on liquidation.com?
Well, yes and no. If you know how to fix what your buying and have spare parts, then yes. Otherwise, no. Regardless what you buy, most items need to be fixed one way or another. You also need to to pick the items up in person. Their shipping charges are minimum of $40 so if you buy lets say a TV you could easily pay 300% of the items price on shipping.
Generally I would discourage you all from using them. Its too much risk with little reward. Every single lot you Win will cause you stress because most of the time it will arrive in worst condition then you expect.
Hope it helps,
