Great team, that are dedicated to providing an incredible user experience. I've never listed an estate sale, but from I've heard the EBTH team handles each sale with professionalism and reverence.

Pros:

A wide variety of items, accurately labeled and described.

Cons:

Other people may want the same item, which drives up the price (as with all auctions)

Awesome platform. Great team. Smart, tech-enabled business model. Offers exceptional look at the items for sale. High quality seller and bidder experience.

Pros:

Exceptional inventory of unique finds. Phenomenal pics and descriptions. Can't lose out due to last second bids like other bidding sites.

Cons:

Browsing can be addictive. Possibly a huge time waster if you're not careful.

Buyer beware. I had a very negative experience recently (and as of this date, it still has not been resolved). I received 8 dink f chairs that were presented in pics and in the description of being in fair condition. They showed one repairs which was done in one of the chairs which was acceptable to us. Once we received the chairs, we were shocked that they were glued together and missing wood and contained gouged wood and rotted fragments (they were, essentially, in very poor condition). After calling customer service immediately upon inspection, and several follow up calls...I did not get it ouch with anyone until I was transferred (4 days later) to Stephen in customer service. He who was rude, dismissive and basically told me he would do nothing as it was only “my opinion” and they would not do anything about it, despite the photos I offered to send him which evidenced the discordance between what I received and how they were marketed on the website. I Am currently in the process of working with another EBTH employee to resolve. We’re not only out the money we bid, additionally my husband and I had to undergo the expense of taking time off of work and to get a truck to pick up there items from the warehouse. BUYER BEWARE.

Pros:

Some good bargains ONLY if you know what to look for and you are aware of quality and condition.

Cons:

If You have an issue, customer service is non-existent. condition of items is often misrepresented on their web site and omitted in photos.

In September 2021 I purchased item - (ITMG936497) Bottega Veneta Matte Silver Tone Mirrored Aviators from Ebth.  An online auction.  The item was defective.  I bought the item to my local Bottega Veneta store located in Miami to see if anything could be done.  They contacted their headquarters in Italy and reported back to me that the glasses I bought were counterfeit.  EBTH refuses to acknowledge this and insisted that I take my time to contact Bottega Veneta again and get the information in "Writing".  I do not believe it is my roll as the buyer to prove that this product is a counterfeit since I have already spent too much of my time on the purchase.  I supplied the Name and Address for EBTH to follow up on the info they required but they refused.  Buyer beware when buying brand named product from the company with no integrity and unknowledgeable "Experts."
