All sales are final so I don't know anyone willing to put their neck out there without someone having a deposit in their control, if not the entire projected purchase amount.
I fail to understand the problem here, I would only bid what I am willing to pay, I understand full well that a fully functional copart car can be totally inop. Given this, it is VERY likely I won't win the auction, but I have occasionally seen insights sell on copart for a few hundred and others for rather ideotic amounts, my main concern is the distant locations and having someone to pick up the car $$$ if they won't hold it there up to 5 days.
Also Re-read this statement.
I would give you the max I would want to spend and we would need to figure out pick up (I literally would get it anywhere in the us)
I many times mean things literally, I would GIVE you the max I want to spend, not tell, give. As such however I would need to verify that whomever it was was either nearby or had a verifyable brick and mortor somewhere in case they just said sure, dont bid and keep the cash.
Peoples good standing and name I usually don't question unless they question mine first or start to talk about theirs. I find politicians talk alot about their good name, I view others who talk similar to them in the same light.
Anyway, I figure most people are honest but a guarantee like an escrow is never bad either.
