I spent the day watching auctions. looks like 18% PLUS sales tax is the new way. So 25%+... Gone are the day of 10%?I have bid and won items from them. Decent outfit. Just beware they charge 15% buyer premium and 7% sales tax. So you will pay 22% over your winning bid so bid with that in mind.
A couple, three years ago we were at one auction where some scumbag went off the rails, riling against the ladys at checkout for this. They had to call the police.Yeah always amuzing to see some bidders going after an item. And by the time it is done they have way over paid when you add the premium and sales tax.
Yep pretty slim pickings. The only thing I bought close to Charlotte when I was living there was my Doall bandsaw. I actually got it from a guy in Midland. I think most of the small machine shops have closed up long ago so nothing comes up for sale.Not many good deals to be had. Charlotte does not have a lot of surplus tools going around like say, Michigan, Ohio, or the Northeast, so my theory is the prices get high because of supply/demand. Now if you want textile mill equipment....
