What is with the new handling charge on all of the smaller stuff? Like they don't get enough from the buyers fee?!

Early start at making up for losing revenue when Iron Planet takes rolling stock sales over from them.

Iron Planet will take over rolling stock next year. It'll be interesting to see surplus lines being divided up.

Or it could be simple economics.
Exactly. If enough balk at the new charges, and people stop bidding as much, then they might remove the fee. Vote with your money (or in this case, your bid). If you don't mind the $25 fee, keep bidding the auctions up. Your choice, your wallet, and it's pure capitalism at work. I don't like it either, but that just means I'm going to bid $25 less on everything I bid on.
