At this moment in time, all purchases have to be made through our eBay shop with payments via PayPal – https://bit.ly/waxedwired


All of the products sold by Waxed & Wired are antique or vintage, this means the items will show signs of usage and are not in a brand-new condition (signs of prior use or wear are not considered to be signs of damage on the items).  Any significant wear or signs of usage will be highlighted in the product descriptions and shown on the photographs.

Waxed & Wired carry out sympathetic restoration and renovation on many of the items sold, but this will not remove all traces of wear or usage.

Buying from Waxed & Wired means you agree to accept the products as they are photographed and described.  Once the product(s) has been delivered, Waxed & Wired are not responsible for any deterioration or damage through usage by the recipient.

Any electrical items that have been PAT tested will have this stated within the product description, in addition the item will be given a label stating the date the PAT test took place.  If there is no reference to a PAT test within a product’s description, then the item has not been PAT tested. Lighting should always be installed by a qualified electrician.

If you would like more details about a product’s condition, please contact us BEFORE purchasing.
