A: Hi Merlin3rd1975, I responded to your email. All auctions require a mandatory appointment prior to bidding. We recommend that if you can not personally view the vehicle prior to bidding that you do not bid. This is an auction site for surplus.

Q: Hopefully this will help you with the mileage questions. This year, with the 7.3, the odometer will not exceed 300,000. At 399,999 it will go to 300,000 again. Anybody looking at this vehicle should be aware of that. (3/8/20 10:57 PM)
A: Mileage is not normally an issue with surplus. We liquidate based on utilization and repair costs. Often times, these vehicles do more sitting than actually being driven. (3/9/20 10:41 AM)

Q: With all due respect this is the only office that is unwilling to make at least an effort in proper description of this vehicle and in submitting pictures. If the pattern of your comments hold true you will either hide behind a suggestion to inspect or hide my question. You complain about a bidder’s wasting your time yet you ask all bidders to waste theirs and take unneeded trips at this most dangerous time. You might find it less time consuming to do a complete job listing than perpetually relisting. (8/4/20 8:19 AM)
A: All bidders are REQUIRED to inspect property PRIOR to bidding on any auctions. Bidders are required to do their own due diligence. (8/12/20 1:07 PM)
Q: I believe the auctions will soon rid out the public for bidding As NJ had no choice FROM the continued questions of a 13 yr old Commercial vehicle SOLD AS-IS For Parts and the guarantee FROM a Auction House employee. NOt to mention you run up the auction prices on people That need the Parts as these vehicles are being sold As THEN U don’t show to buy ... Leave these auctions alone and go dealer (8/6/20 7:49 PM)
A: YOU ARE 100% CORRECT AND THANK YOU! WE RECENTLY OPENED UP BUYING TO THE AUCTION INSTEAD OF DIRECTLY WITH SCRAP YARDS AND WE ARE STARTING TO REGRET IT. (8/12/20 1:09 PM)
