I haven’t done this before. How does it work?

What happens if I cannot repay the loan?

If you are not able to repay the loan for whatever reason, we will simply ask Forum Auctions to sell the item again. If there is a surplus following the sale we will return it to you. However you will not be liable for any shortfall.

It is a no obligation loan for you to collect the item at a later date.

The items will be held on as security by Forum Auctions. The items will be fully insured while they are awaiting collection by you. In select cases, depending on the item, we may allow you to to take possession.

How much interest will I pay each month?

There is no interest to pay on a monthly basis and the entire loan is repayable only when you are ready to collect the item. If that is within the first three months, then there is no interest to pay at all.
