4. DOD doesn't care about your GL purchasing experience.
5. Your Representatives don't care about the ridiculous EUC requirements.
6. GL will not take responsiblilty for their rediculous time deadlines and DOD

Lets not forget the 25% fee if you refuse a lot you won. Doesn't matter if they completely screwed up, more than likely they're gonna charge you or suspend your account till you pay.

I suppose I'm in the monority. knock on wood but I have never had a real bad experience with GL. I have been buying since 2001. The worst was a truck that had the radiator pierced by a fork lift after the sale closed. It was not GLs fault as the GA national guard was the guilty party. Filed a claim with GL and got my $$$$ refunded.

Your mileage may vary maybe I have been lucky.

but for every bider they run off ther's 5 new ones to bid and they are the sole seller . If you don't buy from them someone else will . So it leaves you 2 choices deal with there crap or pay more to a middleman hopefully with less agravation but not always

You just have to threaten the right person with the right consequences.

If you can get past the human firewalls and actually talk to someone that can make a command decsion you can usually reach a medium.

The only problem i've had so far was " To Hurry Up And Wait" for a whole year on a EUC to come thru so I could pick up my M35a2 W/W. Well I take that back, I got SCREWED out of a nice ammo trailer that had to be immediately migrated back to the government

Is it just me or has this forum turned into a drama soap opera lately. :roll: Wondering if our ranks are turning into a bunch of cheesy women complaining around the coffee table. Buck up guys!

I used to think that these "whinge fest" threads were designed to scare off the competition at auctions.

wsucougarx may be onto a more accurate explanation of the whinge factor.

Maybe we all have been affected by the world economic climate and are all a little testy???

Who knows.

1. Not uncommon, lots of places don't give out authority willy-nilley. Considering GL doesn't OWN THE PROPERTY, its just an auctioneer, what 'authority' should they have?

2. GL doesn't control EUCs. They do have to submit paperwork, but again, they hand off the process to the gooberment. Where is the Battle Creek hate?

3. Work in a customer facing job as you'll see how stupid the average person is. Remember the guy who recently wanted $1000 for a flat tire, PLUS a new tire, PLUS the trailer for free? How do you make that person happy and still stay in business?

4. DoD kills people and blows **** up. They are not the Dept of Happy Customers. You are buying items deems to old, or to bad to fix economically. Be happy you have that chance.

5. Buy a gun, or a class III gun, or get a passport... way more onerous requirements than an EUC.

6. GL does not control the EUC process, I was surprised they at least checked for errors before sending it off. EUC is NOT A GL REQUIREMENT. Its a GOOBERMNET ONE. Blame the right people.

7. EUCs are not a GL requirement, they are a gooberment one.

It seems that you are just looking for a place to cry. You know full well how the process works, and I can think of no other Federal Gooberment process that DOESN'T take eons.. where papers magically fly off to a mythical gooberment address and may/may not reappear for weeks / months.

If you want to avoid the EUC process buy private... but we both know that's a $1000-$1500 'privilege' that flippers charge for.

I must be in the minority as well. I have only had very positive experiences with GL. Especially with their on-site reps, and this at a lot of sites.

My experiences with them have been mixed. If an EUC was involved, it wasn't pretty, however, the local guys all seem to be great, dedicated worker-bees. I just cant seem to figure out two things. First, why GSA doesnt require one for the same item, and Second, why every branch of the guberment accepts that I had to be a citizen to get a passport to begin with(much less a red one) yet GL thinks my citizenship expired with it. Now, DLA (DRMS) accepts that I am a citizen, GL just wont forward the EUC to them! rofl
