Cashmart must not receive second-hand goods from a person under 16 years of age.


Valuation of Goods

To assess the value of different items, Cashmart uses guidebooks, catalogs, Internet search engines, and their own experience. Valuation of goods is at the discretion of the staff on duty.  

Cashmart reserves the right to refuse service based on the condition of goods, current supply, and demand of the goods or lack of evidence to prove ownership of goods.


Recording of Transactions

Cashmart must keep, in the form and contain the information required by the regulations, accurate and complete records of every transaction, whether conducted on the business premises or elsewhere, by which Cashmart receives second-hand goods.


Retention of goods for seven days

For 7 days after receiving second-hand goods, Cashmart must keep the goods in the form in which they were received and without disposing of them in any way.


Disputes as to the ownership of goods

A person claiming to be entitled to the possession of goods in the possession or under the control of Cashmart, being second-hand goods, may apply to the Magistrates' Court for an order for delivery of the goods. An application may be made without notice to any other person; and must be supported by evidence on oath or by affidavit.
