TRA will try to ensure that goods placed with us are entered for
auction as soon as possible, but we reserve the right to delay goods
for inclusion in a later auction if we feel that this practice would
benefit the vendor.
TRA reserves the right to combine divide or rearrange items if we
feel this would be in the best interests of the vendor.
Any item entered into the auction & then withdrawn by the vendor

All items entered for TRA must be the sole property of each vendor
and not the subject of any hire purchase or other third party agreement.
CONDITION OF GOODS
It is essential that any defects are made known to us including
cracks, welds, replacement parts, re-sprays, etc. so that these
can be made known to our bidders.
It is our policy to discourage the entry of poor quality or sub-standard
Goods handed to us will be given free carriage to our auction room.
Easily damaged, fragile or breakable items for example glass, china,
paperwork, etc. will be accepted at vendors risk and should be properly
packaged by you. In the event of damage occurring to these latter

In the very remote case of damage or loss to vendors goods whilst
on our premises the liability of TRA is strictly limited to the
amount of the written reserve not the final selling price realised.
Reserves must be agreed with us before entry. Items will only be
accepted if the agreed reserve confers on each item a reasonably
good chance of TRA selling it for you.
