As an eBay educational specialist the one question I get asked more than anything is “Where can I source my stock from?”. Well I’m feeling generous today so here’s a hot tip. How about trying Police disposal auctions? A new website has just been launched replacing the old practise of disposing of items via public auction houses where you had to attend in person to bid. The new Police disposal site, Bumblebeeauctions, is now live and open for business.
The police will be auctioning stolen property that they haven’t been able to trace the owners of and any lost property which is handed in but not reclaimed. They will of course make every possible attempt to reunite the property with the owner first including post code checks. All proceeds from the auctions will go to charities such as Victim Support, the Missing Persons Bureau and alcohol abuse charities.
In order to bid you’ll need to open a Nochex account (why they haven’t allowed PayPal I don’t know?). With all prices starting at Â£1 you might just find some great items that’ll fetch higher prices when you resell on eBay.
