What does a guy do?

Post by junkyard junky on May 2nd 2013, 5:10 am

Put some tires and wheels on the internet for sale. Got several messages along with one from a guy 90 miles away telling me to mark them sold. So the next day I call the guy and tell him that I would like to sell them soon and asked him when he thought he could pick them up and get them out of my way. He response was " Don't know when I can get them." ok. I asked about him sending the money if he wanted me to hold them until he was able to get down this way and never did get a response. Then I offered to deliver the wheels this past weekend for free and was told that he would call me Sunday morning. Sunday morning, noon and night came and I never heard anything. In the mean while I have a guy that is 200 miles away that wants them and will send the money down via mail. Since I didn't hear from the first guy, I sold them to the guy 200 miles away. Now the first guy is calling is meassaging me. Told him that I've already sold them. Anyone else ever get caught in this position? Sold a chassis to a guy in Mi 6 months ago. He put $100 down and said it would be a little while before he could get it. Four months later he finally told me that he wasn't going to be buying it. I just hate getting jerked around when I have someone else interested.

If you get money down write it out when it will be paid in full and have him sign it. If he doesn't show then sell it to the next guy. Cash and carry here. First one at my house with the cash gets them. I don't want the hassle and have been screwed many times to worry about being a nice guy.

If the first guy didn't want them badly enough to at least send a deposit (non-refundable) he can go pound sand. Rolling Eyes

I agree if the first guy didn't even Care enough to make a deposit, or return calls for that matter. Then he didn't want them that bad!

Well the guy called me while I was inside the house just now. Accidently left it in the garage. Then when I sat down to check my email and everything, he sent me a message via the Hamb. When I sent a message to him last night explaining why I sold them due to him not getting the money to me or even making an effort to pay me, I mention that I had another set. Well his reaction included some real good vocabulary and I told him him that. Called him back and left a message saying that he better not call back because there is no use for it.

Yeah i had that problem when I had to sell my 96 Bronco i drove from Tallahassee FL to jacksonville, he said he wanted it and I would bring it even with a half a tank of gas! But he clamined it was a POS, and nothing was wrong with it. But he forgot to tell his wife and she got very mad and said he didnt want it, and if it wasnt for my brother I woulda knocked him out cold,but I learn not to be the nice guy with thoese kinda people. and i only wanted what I owed money on it 1200 so it could be paid for and I lost my job, so it was worth the loss of money over bad credit.
