Look close at the books... the majority is newer stuff, but I did see some old and valuable stuff too. You'd have to ship the whole lot, and I didn't see shipping assistance offered... also watch out that they don't change the lot bids in multiples... I saw some stuff in former auctions that led me to believe the buyers either didn't know the value of the item or didn't know they were paying 4times the price.Unfortunately I can't find any pictures of the estate auctions, both the actual properties and the home items. There is also another auction with all the containers and such. No pictures.
The second day of auctions with the "parts" is kinda confusing. I'm guessing that they are planning on each auction sale to include everything in the pictures. So, one auction with 20 motors? Or the parts catalogues, all of the books in the same auction? Or are they choice of an item?
I'm into the books. I have none and would like to have a collection like that.
This is the most disturbing thing about this auction, at least to me... Most of the cars are not clearly able to be titled by the purchaser. Most have open titles and are said to come with the paperwork to facilitate transfer... but AFAIK no state is accepting open titles, and FL DMV sucks. The auction policies state that no open titles will be given, but then that's all they've got. Does TX issue titles to out of state folks? Not every state does, and the fact that many of the cars have the statement "bonded title may be required" bothers me... like it hasn't yet been determined and if so, as I understand it the value of the car for taxes is open to a judges discretion if you do get a bonded title.On a side note it appears with the purchase of some of cars you will get a death certificate!
Also, as I understand it, its illegal to ship a car without a title... weird that some incomplete cars they think they can title and some complete cars they say are "parts only". I'm interested in how much of this gets clarified before auction time. Please weigh in if you know about TX title law, I didn't try to look it up.
