In your first example, the miscellaneous parts were back with the tractor BEFORE they were sold. I see that at auctions and agree in some cases. What about all the people that may have shown up that may be looking for shields or covers? Tractor buyer won, parts buyers lost.

In your second example, you indeed made a profit, so I am not sure how that is any different. Unless you feel that your profit was reasonable gain, but not price gouging. But really, you paid $10, how are they suddenly worth $150-200. They are worth $10, thats what you just paid for them.

For the original loader example. I doubt the interested bidders on the loader knew the brackets would appear at the end of the auction, otherwise they would have bid higher. I imagine they bid knowing they would be searching for brackets. The buyer got lucky, plain and simple. What if the buyer of the contents of the building just happened to buy the contents to get the loader brackets? At that point it is back to the auctioneer not doing a good job of prepping.

Dont take my comments as negative, but I am of the position you should know what you are bidding on, and bid accordingly. Once the hammer has dropped that is the contract you entered into.

All the other talk about making tractors not start, switching items around on pallets on purpose, that is a whole different subject.

That $150-200 was the price tag on them when on the dealer shelf as having never been used and just as if they were that day bought from the dealer so that is easy to say what they are worth at curent dealer price that if paper work could have been found could have been returned to dealer for that in refund. And for the brackets he said the auctioneer DID SAY the brackets were there and went with the loader so he did not buy the loader without the brackets but to settle it would have had to have marked the loader as no sale as not being as sold and then if the auction was still going on then go back and resell it as without the brackets. I don't go to many sales but do know several auctioners pretty well as friends and family.

Have to disagree there. Something is worth what someone will pay for it. If you miss an item while buying coffee or something and I bought it for $10, it was worth $10 to me and not the next higher bid it would have taken to buy it by someone else. If you are willing to buy the item from me for $50 (or whatever) then that's what it's worth to you.

Understand WB,

My whole post was trying to show the counterpoint to each discussion to show that it all depends on your point of view as to who is right.

I was that guy one time, got to an auction too late, guy bought the part I needed for $20, I gladly paid him $40 without thinking twice. The gas to get to the dealer would have been $15.
