Dream Of Starting Towing Company Hits Snag (IL)


Recommended Posts


What should be a $25-$35,000+ truck ( condition dependent ) on a auction site going for $19,000?? And this guy didnt think there was anything seriously wrong with it?? Come on... Just the sight of the quickie spray bomb paint job on the front bumper to the point there is overspray all over the wheels/tires Said to me they are hiding something with this beat to death turd...Maybe it is just me but I wouldnt ever even think about buying a used truck sight-unseen off some auction site. Especially with the mindset that I am gonna go get it and just drive happily off into the sunset...

Not to offend this guy in any way but I really hope you decide to go another route with your "dream".. You simply dont seem to have the right mentality for this industry...

You're right, this Dream does not seem to have been well thought out. Who buys a vehicle such as this through a salvage auction site. I'd say he got lucky to have been refunded, likely because Copart would rather take it back to a local yard then deal with the bad press from one auction when hundreds if not thousands are going on at the same time across the nation. And what is it with the 3rd party wholesaler involvement?
