At SAS, except for the porter, all have an odd approach- from the woman at the desk answering the phone to the auctioneers. They are very quick to state their rights - the joke is that the law does not force them to comply with the most common and standard business practises that all other business have to comply with. All auction houses should comply with all current laws like any other business in the UK. It is a total shame that they are the only type of business allowed to misdescribe an item, to artificially increase a bid. They are allowed not to accept cancellations within the standard 14 days period and allowed not to refund after they misdescribed. It`s time that these auction houses should comply with returns and cancellations as does everybody else. It would be fun to watch!

Amazing amount of knowledge in possibly all fields, huge experience in dealing with "stuff" of all kinds, achievable, realistic valuations, lovely, helpful staff. What more is to need from a good Auction House?

SAS, Special Auction Services, Newbury, UK misrepresented 2 lots I purchased online in April 2017 by not mentioning or showing serious damages to those lots in their listings. The 3rd lot broke when the SAS packer failed to properly fit the lot into its original factory-fitted inner cocoon, which not only broke the item but also the cocoon and the original outer display box. I paid $1100 for that particular lot, which has recently been appraised at only $600 because of that damage. Add to that the over $700 cost of professional repairs to the 3 lots. After many conversations with SAS representative Bob Leggett, SAS refuses to acknowledge their dishonesty, their misrepresentation, their culpability in the poor packing job, nor to reimburse for any of these items, even for the $40 packing fee. He also told me that SAS is protected by a lack of British laws governing their specific type of online auction and that they are, basically, untouchable. Jaz Brock USA

I would be very wary dealing with SAS as they do not advertise their lots very well and they are inaccurate. I recently bought from them via an online auction and the item was not as described so when I received it I informed them to the error and they were not interested in refunding my money. I pursued the matter further with them and they eventually agreed to refund me, however if I accepted the refund then I was banned from ever bidding at any of their future auctions! I obviously accepted the refund for the incorrectly described lot and I am now banned from SAS auctions. Spread the word.
