    Argos Returns - Bid On A Pallet Load 29th Apr 05 at 7:02 AM
    Sorry if this has been posted before just noticed this

    Register with Argos and bid on customer returns at their distribution HQ at Daventry, Northants.

    Argos staff will load pallet(s) on your vehicle - best to have a van I think.


    Handy if you live local

    Just a word of caution. It may be possible to get some great bargains but do your research. You can download the items on each palet as an excell document and I have found more often than not the returns are:
    a: no longer available on the web or through argos
    b: with a sky high retail value eg 64meg memory sticks with an rrp of £34.99 when nowadays you can easily pick them up for a fiver.
    c: stock that is still on argos.com at a much reduced price.
    d: some stock -b which could be well used and scratched
    e: old technology which is going to be hard to sell on.

    Just saying do your research, I've been involved in electrical retail for many years, got quite excited about the site and have done my homework and not found an auction where I could be sure to make a profit. I'm just worried novices will bid £1000s and not be able to re-coupe their investment.

    Don't want to sound negative, just that there's alot of people selling electrical equipment on ebay and at car boots etc. It's a buyers market and I found (and I
    have sat for hours going through argos.com, finding cheap prices of listed stock on shopping comparison sites and finding the lowest prices things sell for on ebay and on about 15 different auctions I would stuggle to make a profit.

    my mate is a delivery/pick up returns driver for argos and the other day he picked up a leather suite that was to big for the ladys house.. this is classed now as a return and goes to the auction. he has picked up tellys .dvds. computers etc.. some because the colour not right . some because it clashes with the other furniture etc.. yes he has also picked up a sandwich toaster that was non stick etc etc. so if you have the money the time and the space then i would say go for it ..
    Those we love don't go away,They walk beside us every day,Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear
    Our thoughts are ever with you,Though you have passed away.And those who loved you dearly,
    Are thinking of you today.

    it's probably so they don't have any old member of joe public stumbling accross the site and returning the stuff to a local store if they don't like it. :confused:
    things arent the way they were before, you wouldnt even recognise me anymore- not that you knew me back then
    BH is my best mate too, its ok

    I trust BH even if he's from Manchester..

    Does anyone know if the stuff comes with warranties or not please?
    Always looking for a bargain and to help
  • blue_monkey
    I use to have a market stall and there were 2 people with stalls on there selling ex-argos stuff. A lot of it used to go in the skip. When I first started I used to buy bits an bobs but most of it would be broken when I got home if it was boxed. Not everything is of course but as a business you have to have a returns policy - because a lot of people would just bin it from a market it would not matter but selling it on eBay people would expect their money back if it was damaged or faulty. This stuff can also be bought on Gemswholesale!

    Once the payment transaction has been approved Argos Clearance will send an email confirming the arrival of the payment in the Argos account and include a unique delivery note number and who to contact to arrange a collection slot. Collection will be from an Argos Distribution centre. The collection warehouse will generally be Burton on Trent DE13 8BX.

    At last the reason why most RO bargains always seem to be available at the Burton shop.
