ABOUT PAUL'S AUCTIONS


Welcome to Paul's Auctions! We've been running auctions for more than 25 years (previously as Morisset Auctions). We have a solid and consistent vendor and customer-base, and pride ourselves on the high quality of auction goods that we advertise. Take a look around in our online auctions or come in to our auction rooms (1 McPherson Rd, Tuggerah, NSW 2259) and take a look around!

Paul's Auctions is open Tues to Sat, 10am to 4pm.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are your operating hours?

Paul's Auctions is open Tues to Sat, 10am to 4pm.

This can vary in holiday periods and for public holidays, so if you're unsure just give us a call.

How do I register to bid?

You can register to bid by going to the Online Auctions page and signing up.

You will need a valid credit or debit card to sign up, as winning bids are charged automatically at the completion of the auction item.

Can I bid for online items without an account?

All customers must bid online and pay for successful winning bids automatically through the site. 

We may be able to assist by phone or in-person for long-standing customers with whom we have an established relationship.

Unfortunately, we have had too many people do a 'runner' over the years after securing the winning bid and never actually pay or pick up their items.

This disadvantages people who genuinely bid and intend to purchase goods, as well as our staff who hold the items aside.

How & when do I pick up my successfully won auction items?

You must pick up all successfully won auction items within 2 business days from our auction venue. If you are unable to do this, you should either reconsider whether to bid, or call in advance to arrange with us to hold the item for longer.

We are generally okay to give a grace period of an extra day or two, but not weeks so please be reasonable in your request. We are constantly cycling through stock, so we simply can't hold stock for long. 


SHOW YOUR INVOICE TO PICK UP YOUR WON ITEMS

After winning an auction, your provided credit card is automatically charged, so there is nothing more to pay. 

You'll have to create and then show us an invoice for your items when you collect your goods. To learn how to generate your invoice, see "How it works" below.


Please either print and bring your invoice with you or have the email ready to verify when picking up your item/s. We'll mark as completed and hand over the goods after sighting the invoice to confirm it's you.

Can people make last-minute bids before I get another chance?

This is called 'sniping' and our system automatically discourages it.

If someone bids within the last 10 minutes of an auction, extra time will be added onto the auction so that you have sufficient time to respond and place another bid if you so wish.

Do you deliver winning auction items?

We do not offer deliveries. It is up to you to come and pick up your successfully won auction items from our auction venue.

How do I pay for auction items that I have won?

When you create an account with Paul's Auctions you'll be asked to provide credit card details. No charge is made at this point. Once your account is set up, you are then welcome to bid on auction items.

ALL AUCTION ITEMS ARE SUBJECT TO A 22% BUYERS PREMIUM (or minimum $3). This means that at the conclusion of the auction, you will be automatically charged (the amount plus the 22% buyers premium) and you will be sent an email to produce your invoice.

Items are not automatically invoiced - the invoice checkout process allows you to correct your billing address in case you want to change it beforehand. ????

Please either print and bring your invoice with you or have the email ready to verify when picking up your item/s. We'll mark as completed and hand over the goods after sighting the invoice to confirm it's you.

Do I need an online account to come to a live event?

No, you don't.

Registrations are done separately through this page (when available). 

What happens to auction items with no bids or items that don't reach their reserve?

Items with no bids are often re-listed in a subsequent week.

Items up for auction multiple times without receiving a bid will often be bundled with other goods in a later auction.

Items that do not reach their reserve price will either be re-listed or returned to our vendor.

Can I list my own stuff?

We don't allow just anyone to list an item with us, so there is no ability yo simply upload your own photos and list them for sale. You must contact us to request to become a vendor. 

If you would like to enquire to be a vendor, send us a Vendor Enquiry
