HAVE YOU NOTICED THE BRAND NEW MOTORS SELLING ON HERE FROM BUSINESS SELLERS WITH NO FEEDBACK FOR NEXT TO NOTHING

 

ME TOO

 

I am just making people aware. Some sellers may well be genuine and you may get your outboard but be careful. I was watching a motor which was listed as a brand new mercury 225hp. It looked perfect. Too good in fact and it was

 

The seller was a business seller with no feedback score. he was listed in the uk, normally bristol, london or manchester I have found, the motor was far too heavy for courier or pallet delivery. I was very keen on it as they are around £5000+ from the dealer. I asked several questions regarding it but got no REAL answers or details, I could not view, I was informed that I could NOT COLLECT and the outboard had to be "shipped" to me. The excuse was that the guy was out of the country and he did not want his wife to meet a strange man ( begs the question why list it when you were going out of the country when its clear you will need to be there). I had to make payment in full then just wait for the item... YEAH OK

 

All Im saying is check the feedback, ask questions if your unsure. If you think its too cheap or something is not right walk away. The pictures are a good tell. If there is just one or two ask for some more. The pics often look like they are in the USA ( You can kind of tell by the boats there on or the houses etc). Some times they even look super-imposed onto backgrounds of workshops etc.

 

Often these sellers also have a few HIGH PRICED items all on at the same time. In one case I could actually see the speedo on a tractor they had and it was clear to be in us format ( do they think we are stupid).

REVIEW

so just to clarify, there will be genuine business sellers with no feedback and im sure they will understand your concerns or questions. If you dont like what your told DONT BUY IT. Dont take the risk its your money they are taking. If all else fails ask me and I will offer you some help and advice.

 

HAPPY BOATING
