All goods are sold AS-IS & Where-IS
In the liquidation industry, such AS-IS policies are common. In order to reduce costs and keep selling prices low, more often than not liquidated merchandise is bundled together and sold in bulk. Often, different product conditions will be mixed within the same load. Via Trading will either re-process these bulk loads in to smaller wholesale lots or offer them for sale in their entirety to customers.
When working with assorted bulk or smaller wholesale lots it is often difficult to be specific about:
Via Trading nor its representatives make any guarantee or warranty of merchandise fitness or marketability.
All sales are final.
There are no returns or exchanges.
Small discrepancies in values or manifests should be expected.
Shipping quotes are provided with minimal insurance – if you would like to request additional insurance please inform your Account Manager and/or add a note in the "special instructions" when submitting your order online so that we can provide you a quote with the increased insurance.
As a courtesy, Via Trading can arrange shipping but responsibility remains with the buyer. Any claims for delays, merchandise lost in transit, or additional delivery charges incurred must be taken up directly with the carrier responsible.
Via Trading exports goods around the world on a daily basis, however overseas buyers need to be aware that it is their responsibility to make sure that they can clear the goods through customs given the information that can be provided.
Different countries have different policies in regards to custom duties, items that can legitimately be imported and the extent of detailed information required. Via Trading can provide you with a quote as well as any information we have available pertaining to the items in the order but we cannot be held responsible if the items cannot be cleared through customs.
All customers need to read, agree to and sign our Conditions of Purchase prior to finalizing an order.
The Conditions of Purchase will provide you with guidelines for selling department store liquidation merchandise (for example not being able to advertise the department store name or private label brands).
Any physical or online discount coupon or promotion cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount or promotion (ie: you cannot use a $50 OFF coupon in conjunction with a ‘Buy 1 get 1 Free Promotion’)
Please note all goods are sold As-Is and all sales are final.
Via Trading does not offer any guarantees on the merchandise we offer and there are no exchanges or returns possible.
