    Quote: GP's truck prices seem lower, but that may just be the market trending down. The opening bids are usually at least slightly below the bottom end of reasonable, although sometimes I have to wonder who values a freshly rebuilt non running winch truck with super singles the same as a non running truck with no cab top, no winch, missing engine components, and shredded front tires.
    I don't see this. All the trucks and equipment that GP sells here in Utah are exceptionally high in closing compared to many other locations, especially back east. A couple examples would be HMMWVs that almost always excede $10-12K, an M923A2 that closed at $12500, and a power plant that closed at $13K. So CHEAP or a really good deal isn't happening out here. Yes, I can buy cheaper back east but then need to factor in transport costs. I see a lot of cheap trucks coming out of Kansas but they are in BAD shape and usually don't run either. JMO

    GL was corrupted, I have witness many time all the good stuff would sell for realy high price and then come back next week again, I dont know whi and how, some people were running the market there, either from outside or inside, they just kept bidding stuff until no one bid for it and kept cancelling it so got it cheap, in the process many people got ripped off, thats why GP prices are low, because if you bid, you bought it, but GL let some "regular customers" cancel bids, I seen people in Alabama got freakin enough green stuff to get their own war going. Yes you cant get lucky on GL for dirt cheap stuff any more, but GP kicked all the wolfs out... Thats why some people are upset. They had the mentality,, if you bid on my stuff than I make sure you pay whole lot.

    Back in days my questions had multiple answers, ideas, directions and opinions.
    Now my questions has only one answer... Google it...

    I don't see how anyone could like GL better. There was almost no information about the truck on the site and it took me over a year to get the title. Looks like GP actually fixes some of the trucks to get them in shape to be transported home. I've seen several with notes written on the label that say the batteries were replaced for the brake fluid was topped off. Not to mention the videos of the engine running...

    I also read a bunch of stories where people would go pick up their trucks from a GL auction and parts would be missing.

    GL is pretty dang sorry anymore! No customer service and they cannot even put a label on a shipment. Would you ever receive anything from Amazon that way? I have had numerous $75 labeling charges. I now find someone to pickup and label and then I get it picked up. GP will work with you more on discrepancies but I do not like their auction bidding process. Missing items from GL go no where. Even when you show them in the pics they say someone must have taken it when they picked their truck up. Nice! I wish someone else would take over both!
