QUESTIONABLE PRACTICESBE AWARE!!!!!! WON an item and weeks later was refunded as they cant find the item. I have a feeling they did have the item but will relist it later for a higher price. Other reviews have expressed the same issues and concern. To say the least, they have questionable business practices. I will never bid with them again. BE ON THE ALERT!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

MisleadingThey advertise “we handle all shipping” but do not tell you you that they charge a large sum for the service. Also, even though the address is listed in Los Angeles, they use a Burbank address for tax. Equates to a percent or more. Very misleading and deceitful

Items purchased had over inflated replacements costsItem's I purchased were so over inflated with replacements costs. Had several items appraised and most came back lower then what I paid for them. Very disappointing and I will never purchase from these people again. As they say "buyer be ware".

Westbury AuctionItems purchased were not the quality advertised. Communication by them in regards to shipping was horrific. Took over 9 weeks to get merchandise that was less then 50 miles from where I lived. As they say "buyer beware". I will NEVER purchase from them again.

i hope i have succumbed to a scammer at westbury auction galleries!?money collected and then nothing! Purchase was 4 weeks ago on 1/14/20, since then I have been told from week to week "you have problems with the shipper"? FEDEX is prepared daily and provides fast! if the shipping does not work again this week, I will hand over the purchase to my lawyer!

Below expectationsThe watch I received wasn't according to my expectations,,, the pictures published looked like it was in much better conditions but in reality it was much worse.... I think it's not worth what I spent and also I think that receiving the watch 26 days after having paid for it is also not fair. All in all an expensive experience that I probably will not repeat. thank you

MisleadingThe pictures and appraisals are misleading a word to the wise dont make the same expensive mistake I made. This jewelry is not worth a Third of what they appraise it at. No returns read the fine print details they have everything in there agreement to protect Westbury and leave the customer with zero Rights. Do yourself a favor and pass on this Auction.

Won an Item I never bid onBe very wary of this auction house. They tried to stick me with a bill for over $2300 on an item I never bid on. I tried several times to contact them, they never responded either via email or phone. Obviously I will not pay this and so they have opened a dispute. For this auction house, I will be reporting you as it seems based on some of your reviews this isn't the only bad review you have received.

Unworkable Rolex watch I bid from WestburyMay 28 I bid Rolex 18K YG Diamond lady watch. Shipment arrived quickly. But watch under unworkable condition. After winding and wearing, watch runs slowly and stop then; day adjustment also has problems, it can not be adjusted anti-clockwise, which is designed to be; then day change not at 12 o’clock but at 4 o’clock. Talk to Westbury, they refused refund. I waste $15, 000 including tax. Won’t come again

Fake!All the appraisals Are 100 % WRONG! Fake paperwork saying they are worth what the item is listed for. I bought a so called Rolex and they said it was worth $18, 000 to $24, 000, WRONG! It is only worth $1, 000. I took it to a licensed Rolex Dealer and they said it’s pretty much counterfeit! The dealer said the face was fake, the hands were fake, the custom diamond ring around the face was not real Rolex and they couldn’t even tell if the guts were real. All they said was, “This is not a real Rolex!” Do not buy from any of the sellers on this site, you’re gonna get ripped off!!! I spent $4, 850 for a $1, 000 piece of junk! I could have gotten a fake Rolex on the streets of NYC for $100

The auction house agreed To let us see the item before we wire the money ($18000). But we haven’t heard back from them to see the item. Tried to call many times also with email, but get very limited reply.

I bid won and paid for item. A week later received refund and then saw the item I won reauctioned for higher amount. I sent several emails to both Westbury and live auction and never got a response until after the item was reposted and sold again.
Jan 10, 2018
I am very scared of the bidding process. After following an auction for several hours, I accidentally hit bid and won an item I did not want. Over the next few days I repeatedly phoned and emailed Westbury to explain. I never received a response. I was very upset and worried for several days about that accidental bid.

Their Jewelry appraisals are not accurate! I will Challenge their written appraisals! Stated both items purchased appraised at over $1, 020 for each of which I paid $400 and $200. Neither will retail for even $200. The 14kt white gold cross is so tiny, size for a baby, and the. 013 of diamonds on it can only be seen with a jewelers loop! I Only bid because these pieces appraised for so much. I can not retail these in my storefront.
