Question posted by cgmiller63 on June 26th, 2018 8:28 AM

Has anyone hear of

I am looking to purchase a very expensive and large item on Craigslist, but they want me to use this Auto Yard Shop which I know very little about. I am wondering if anyone has used it before and what their experience was like, negative or positive?
Update : The item is an Forest River 27HFS trailer. It is priced under book value.
Update 2: On the website it points out not to use "western union" and "money gram". They are offering free shipping. I am located 200 miles away the trailer location
Please check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks

Auto Yard Shopis completely secure and extremely reputable. You will never have to worry about transferring money to them and not getting the trailer

hey man, you should get the trailer. Lots of good times ahead if you do.  Looks like they're offering a good deal with free delivery

As you can see from the pics, below, the trailer has arrived a day early and we are so excited to finally have it. 99% of this transaction has gone very well....

As for the experience up to this we go...

1. Driver contacted us 100 miles out and agreed to meet at our local gas station

2. Driver gave us a thorough walkthrough and answered all of our questions to the best of his ability.

3. Driver assembled and adjusted the hitch to fit our tow vehicle and then did laps around the storage facility to help me adjust the trailer brake gain and to point out the "normal bang, clang noises" associated with using a weight distribution hitch.

4. Paperwork was all in order......we signed the highlighted areas, bought the driver a cheeseburger, thanked him, tipped him, wished him a safe trip home and sent him on his way.........gotta turn and burn to make the bucks.

Again, we love it and are super excited to have it here.....we are so thankful for the blessings we have and are looking forward to a lot of quality family time. Been a long day.....pooped and ready for a cool one.

Auto Yard Shop and to all of you guys and gals that we hope to meet.....thanks for reeling us back in and helping make this deal come together
