Default repocast *I love this site*

Watching a duramax go for probally less than 3k again. Some of the deals on this site are amazing. My buddy just bought a 2002 Mountaineer for 1300 and will be selling it for 4900. Figured I'd share the goods.

No way that goes for 3k, I bet it goes for at least 6-8k.

I made some good money for a couple of years off that site. Bids don't start happening until the last minute of the auction, then they bump the timer up each time someone bids.

I would hope you pay for what you get no matter where you get it.

I brought stuff to them for almost 2 years.
It is not surprising that people buy junk on there then resell it.

The amount that hoist and heavy machinery goes for is nuts.

The mountaineer my buddy bought needed about $1000 in work and it looks and drives sweet. And just a few weeks ago a duramax in the almost exact same condition went for $3100.00

I've been following stuff on this site for about a year now. I don't think I've ever seen anything go for that good of a deal.

I mostly look at the cars, motorcycles, and RV's sections.

A lot of it goes for retail price. that isn't counting the 10% added on top.

Best deals are probably vehicles, but I would strongly recommend going there and looking at them before you buy it if you plan on paying a reasonable sum.

I've made some fair deals from there. Bought my vacuum cleaner, dining table, fixed rotation buffer/sander, and would have gotten a few other things from there too if I didn't drop the ball at the end of bidding.

I already removed everything from my watch list for this week.

You could actually make money buying things from harbor freight with coupons and put them on there. I just watched a 2 ton engine hoist go for $20 over retail, and it isn't even done yet...

I scored a JKU soft top on there last year for $150.

Vehicles you really need to go look at before bidding. I scored a Volvo v70r on there a few years ago for insanely cheap, when I drove to Grand Rapids to pick it up the interior was riddled with mold, of course that wasn't in the pictures.

They need to find some way to deal with the people that bid on shit and don't pay. That's why the same shit is on there for weeks on end.

I think it is because a lot of them overpay, don't research, and don't think about what they are getting.

They may also get into the problematic auction mindset "100 more dollars"

I was being sarcastic. You can just look around that site for a few minutes and discover half of it just needs to head to the scrap yard.
