They are good. It is incumbent upon the purchaser to know more about the item being offered. It's an education on so many levels!

One of the best auction houses. They ship smaller items themselves, make the payment process easy, are good at replying to questions (some auction houses NEVER reply!).

Surprised to find the owner answering my phone inquiry and payment. It was such a delight to talk and interact with him. Also, the shipping costs were very reasonable. The item came two days later from the east coast to the west coast. I wish all of my transactions through LiveAuctioneers were like this one.

I have shopped with a handful of auction houses and I have to say, my transactions with Charles Whitaker are the smoothest of the lot! Very pleasant on the phone, even the little things like mentioning that I had shopped w/them previously. Love them!!!

Excellent customer service: I left a message they called me back right away. Very fast shipping of my item. I'm very pleased with this auction house and would not hesitate to take part in another of their auctions.
