    Update:

    I was told that the location is not disclosed until the item is paid for, the EUC (if required) has been approved, and any other paperwork is completed; this due to people supposedly showing up at the pickup location with false paperwork and stealing the items. I personally find that one hard to believe, I think very few people would be willing to commit felony stolen vehicle crimes especially with ex-federal government property involved... I would like to see a report which denotes every instance of that happening in the last three years, and the status (recovered, missing, perpetators charged, perpetrators convicted).

    This explanation still does not explain why I was told three different locations, as well as it does not help the client/buyer arrange shipping, if using a third-party company.

    I was finally directed to a site which appeared to be someone's personal property (behind a house), given a few weeks to arrange shipping (or in my case, obtain permission for vacation days from work), and was almost immediately warned via email that I had a very short time to remove said item or storage charges and/or forfeiture of item (resulting in penalty fees) would occur; and I could only pick it up by appointment, and only on a Tuesday.

    I picked it up from an unincorporated place near Tracy, CA in the last week of December; the representative and his son who met me at the yard were great people.

    Also, just last week, I was sent another email stating that "the government has changed the DEMIL status of the item and you must submit an EUC application"!

    After a useless phone call to a rep who was clueless, and two emails,that finally got cleared up.

    Thinking about this further, I had a vaguely similar issue with my item. It wasn't "secret" by any means, but the physical location of my item seemed to be changing. I placed my bid on it with it being in Crane NSWC, won the item with it being somewhere in Indianapolis, and was authorized to pick it up near the Indianapolis airport. This all worked much more in my favor, as it was a 15 mile recovery instead of a 75 mile recovery, plus the lot rep told me that the vehicle hadn't moved since the auction photos were taken on his lot, but the electronic info for the location kept getting edited and he had to correct it multiple times.

    Thanks for the follow up post, I'm glad to hear you were able to collect your purchase. I appears that we hobbyists may have to start thinking of this type of situation as the new normal, requiring a new skill set built through experiment, outcomes and communications.
