Default Pre Owned Auto Mall

Has anyone received any calls from this company? I have my 29 Outlaw listed for sale here and a few other places and this guy calls me out of the blue offering to sell my boat for a one time fee of $499. Says he has great success and his company secures financing for all buyers. Sounds too good to be true, but just wanted to see if anyone has heard anything good or bad about this company. Website is www.preownedautomall.com

I get chit like that all the time, respond, and tell him to write up the contract, his comission XXX and lets do it.

I am sure he won't agree to it.
He want to money to list it for you.

I have not heard of them, but I can tell you, I have my BMW M3 for sale and I get 2 calls a day by outfits like that. I'd say don't do it! I'm sure they want the $ up front. Those guys are Azz Clowns IMO. Good luck with the sale.

I agree, just checking to in to see what anyone had to say about them - if anything.

I figure I know way more about my boat than he does and If I can't get it sold this time of year, it probably isn't going to happen.

I am in the sales buisness, He is an on line service that has less chance of selling your product then you would, I sell Performance boats, I don't know jack about Silverton Cruisers or some fishing boats. He advertizes boats, cars, yada. yada he makes $499 WOW he gets 1000 products he just made $499K for the year, Nice Set Up.
