Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

almost a week into the auction and she's only at 100 bucks. If i have to put her on again i'm thinking about doing a no reserve auction.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

Always better not too. People tend to not bother with them as they dont want to put a bid and then find out that the reserve was not met so nothing happened. If I see reserved on something, I go to the next one.

Sorry to say.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

I do a lot of ebay'ing and I ALWAYS skip auctions with a reserve. I never understand why they dont just set the open bid to = whatever they want as a minimum.

I mean whats the point of having say a $400 open bid with a reserve of $700. and then I bid $400 only to be told its not = to the reserve. blah pain in the ass so I skip reserve auctions as do a lot of peeps I think.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

I recently saw either a 2006 or 2007 Lincoln Town Car 120" stretch that sold on ebay for a $15K and some change that was in excellent shape. I noted there was no reserve and it was the first auction I saw for such a vehicle without a reserve. Typically, equipment like that would sell for $30K average.

I may have missed it in the thread. What engine does this one have? 5.9 Cummins?

Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

just started the new "no reserve" auction.

this bad economy sucks! it used to be much easier to sell jacuzzi buses.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=320430763101

2 of my other buses sold this time of year.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

Just to get that first one out of the way I threw down a sympathy bid.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

i appreciate the gesture, but please don't bid if you are not interested in the bus.

looks like no reserve auction is the way to go so far! only been a couple days and it's already over $2K and it has 33 watchers. Thats all without spending extra money (40 dollars or so) on fancy adversiting stuff on ebay which i normally do with a bus auction.
