Great Auction
We accidentally bid on an item in their auction under my account a bid meant to be placed under another family members name and account. Since the item was winning our name if we had paid and accepted it on behalf of my Brother in law it would have been a straw purchase. We did not intend to do so. We asked if they could change the invoice to reflect the appropriate and intended owner. This however still constitutes a straw purchase since it's my account and not his. The auction was kind enough to let us out of the commitment and cancel the sale. We will be more observant and cautious in the future when logging in making certain which account we are using before we bid on anything especially a firearm again. We made an error and the auction house has been very understanding so far. I hope it will not reflect poorly on us as we have done business with this auction before and hope to continue to be good customers. To the Auction. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. We will be more careful in the future and double check which account we logging in to before entering the live auction. Terribly sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you.

Professional Service, Customer-Friendly
My wife and I were interested in some items in an upcoming Poulin auction and we happened to be in the area of Poulin Antiques & Auctions. We called to see if we could preview the items in which we were interested. Absolutely! It wasn't one of the regular preview days for the auction, but we would be welcome nevertheless; in fact, someone would stay late for us if we couldn't get there by closing time. After the auction, which we participated in from home, online, we called to arrange to pick up the items we had won. When I arrived for the pick-up appointment, the items had already been pulled and cleaned; furthermore, Poulin employees were ready to carry the items to my vehicle and load them for me. Bottom line: we received nothing but first class service from this auction house. We plan to participate in their future auctions and we will happily refer them to family and friends.
