    I didn't take it as directed towards me.

    You might not like my answer but I frequently (more as I get older) type all kinds of stuff and forget to send or screw it up somehow and then hit send. Not saying you did that but in my case it is always an option.

    When it comes to paperwork, SF97s and such, GL had their crap together and I never had any problems with them and got them very quick. GP on the other hand is taking far too long on SF97s(I'm now almost 8 weeks since close, no SF) and I have received them twice with the wrong S/Ns on them requiring me to return them and wait (again) for the replacement. The only upside to GP that I see is the descriptions and the volume of pictures which GL could easily do. I don't see any real advantage to the oil analysis.

    Gl, atleast with them there was a little chance of getting a truck stupidly cheap, not a reserve price on them, though i do like GP 5 min bidding.

    I agree, the prices are off the wall on some items.

    I like Gov Planets website over GL. The overall process with GP seems easier and customer service on the phone seems good, but there are time delays. I will deal with some while they are getting everything started, but they need to address this soon. Some will remember the old days of GL when they took a long time. also, their Iron Clad guarantee actually worked for me and I am very glad they offer it.

    With GL's $25 minimum bid there was always at least some chance of getting something ridiculously cheap. (And I did, once...) except now GL has reserves on items that are frequently higher than you could expect to get for the items at retail. (Winches and ammo cans come to mind as a couple of examples).

    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.

    GP charges quite a bit more for paperwork. With GL, take your final bid and add 20% and you'll estimate slightly high. With GP, on the lower cost items, the paperwork fees are a substantial portion of the total cost ($625 final bid on an M1101 = $914 invoice.)

    GL made no real attempts to start nonrunners. GP seems to cover at least the obvious stuff to try to get them to run.

    GL didn't guarantee the accuracy of the auction details, and stated that in person inspection is recommended. GP intends for their assessment and ad to be the basis for buying decisions and guarantees the accuracy. This leads to less risk, but also less chance to get something at far under market value...

    GL'S bidding rules lend themselves to more creative ways to discourage other bidders. GP'S smaller active auction window leads to its own unique set of strategies....

    im not personally experiencing the EUC fiasco, although that does reflect poorly on them....

    I liked the higher limit for credit cards on GL, On GP, most purchases would have to be bank transfers.
