About us

www.kollectbox.com is a website operated by kollectbox Ltd (we, our, us). We are registered in England under company number 9488745. Our registered office is at T03 The Atkins Building, Lower Bond Street, Hinckley, Leicestershire, LE10 1QU, England.

Kollectbox is an online service that matches, in a single platform, tools collectors use and a marketplace, which operates through the website: www.kollectbox.com.

The service includes the ability to purchase items from third-party sellers through kollectbox marketplace. Within the Marketplace, unless otherwise indicated, Kollectbox Marketplace does not own or sell the items listed, so the actual contract for sale exists directly between the buyer and seller. Kollectbox Marketplace does not have control over, or guarantee the existence, quality, legality, or accuracy of content, item listings, and items provided by third-party dealers.

Nor does Kollectbox Marketplace guarantee that a buyer and seller will actually complete a transaction, remit a payment or refund, and/or return an item. Kollectbox marketplace will not be responsible for any items sold by third-party sellers; for any damage to items during transit or during the inspection period, or for misrepresentations and/or breaches of contract by either the buyer and/or third-party seller.
