If you can agree to the above, read on...
- Items WILL be examined and tested for operation while you wait. We won't buy it if we can't examine it.
- We service or restore everything we purchase, so we will NOT pay ebay
prices due to time needed to do this. We pay wholesale prices for gear.
-If you choose not to sell the item to us, we charge our standard $15
examination fee. This fee is waived if you sell us the item. We do this
to weed out those who in the past have used "intent to sell" as a means
to get a free examination of their equipment from us.
