Frequently Asked Questions
Listed below are the answers to the most popular
questions. If you have a question, please look
through these first as you may well find your answer
has been addressed already. If you do have
additional questions, please feel free to contact us.
What do I need to be able to use the information?
In order to download your PDF document, you will
need a computer with an internet connection. In
order to gain access to the members area, you will
need a computer that can open PDF documents - in
general, a computer running Windows will be fine as
a basic PDF reader is normally pre-installed.
Do I need any prior knowledge to understand the
The guide and supporting information within the
members area assumes no prior auction knowledge -
you do not need to have any prior knowledge or
experience of the auction system to achieve results.
Is the information you reveal legal?
The auction information contained within the guide is
perfectly legal and ethical. Although the information
is not widely known by the general public, anyone is
allowed to take part in police and government
auctions - everyone is always welcome to attend. You
can also go to property auctions, used car auctions
and jewellery auctions.
Is the information ever updated?
The PDF document provides immediate access to the
online members area, meaning that no matter when
you downloaded it, you will be connected to the
latest information available.
One of the auction houses that we regularly
feature in our weekly update holds auctions for
unclaimed baggage. This can be on behalf of
both airlines and railways and the types of items
that you can pick up here include clothing,
tablets, digital cameras, mobile phones and duty
free items such as whiskeys, gins and vodkas (we
imagine these items have been forgotten by
customers as they rush to catch their flight!)
