A: Yes. Reposting. (9/16/20 2:01 PM)
Q: Good Day, Since previous Q & A show that this vehicle is re-posted for auction there is a concern about frame rust while my chance to inspect in person is unlikely. Given indication that there is more than a month on offer, would someone at Lansing, MI take time from a crowded, multi-tasked schedule to provide additional, clear PHOTOS with focus on suspension attachments to the underframe, understanding that pictures require a lift to do so? Incidentally, I wish to commend staff of Charleston County, SC with their vehicle offer on this (govdeals) website to provide both interior and underframe photos of one of their van fleet, as seen today, 09-24-2020. (9/24/20 10:26 AM)
A: Due to the value of the unit and busy schedules, we are not able to take the requested additional pictures. We encourage all our buyers to preview the units prior to bidding. Please note that the mileage was listed incorrectly. The picture is correct at 76,038. Thank you and good luck. (9/24/20 2:39 PM)
