    Or a disgruntled spouse getting revenge. Few years ago went to visit son. In his neighbors yard across the street was a very nice, very large Craftsman roll around tool chest, stuffed full of tools and a sign on it $100 for all (probably close to $2k easy). Told my son about it, he said the couple were in the middle of a nasty divorce proceedings. We went back out to investigate, and someone was already in the process of loading it in a truck (not the woman's estranged husband). :aiwebs_016:

    I`d say the black is better hands down, it just looks so good.

    Morning all, we have very thick fog here today but still quite mild.

    I'm off today because daycare is closed. Jack (18 months yesterday!) is going hanging out with me all day, and I'm bringing Tegan to school in a little bit.

    Anyone here ever sell to KEH? I was trying to sell some dregs I had laying around, and their quotes were pretty fair (especially considering having to ship, pay fees, etc) so I sent them in. It's been sort of annoying since then, though. They aren't very forthcoming with their processing time when you get the quote, and the processing time they send after is clearly rainbows and butterflies. They have a system to track what they are doing on their end, and its been in the "evaluating" stage for 2 weeks now. I sent an e-mail after the first week just asking how much longer it might be, and the e-mail was "We're almost done!". My e-mail this morning was a bit more curt. They've had the stuff for almost a month now. My wife's quip this morning was, "How much longer are they going to keep it before you just assume you gave it away?" I'm not quite at that point yet, but even if they pay top dollar, I'm not sure I'll give a ringing endorsement of their service.

    I had one experience with them but not selling to. I bought a used lens from them that was listed as Nikon mount but when it arrived it was Canon. Kind of annoying but they refunded me and sent me a return shipping label so customer service was good.

    I haven't sold but I've bought a few lenses. I'm very happy with them.
    It's supposed to rain all weekend and I have the travelling lens. :rolleyes:

    I bought my D600 and a tamron zoom from them with no issues. I got both for a fair price, and I was pretty happy with that decision. I also bought a Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 zoom from them that I used for a couple weeks and just decided I didn't want, and the return process was smooth. I wouldn't hesitate to buy something from them if I thought it was the right deal. But selling to them? Meh.

    @JonA_CT have you checked to see if your items are listed for sale on their site? Maybe they're trying to cut down the inventory carrying costs? Or the outright purchase items may take a back seat to those that are being traded on another item? I also wonder if they are certain waiting or hold periods that they follow to verify if the items might be stolen.

    Their inventory is so large, it's hard to know. I don't think so, though. That would be more of a consignment model, and I'd expect a larger percentage back in that case because they aren't taking on any risk.

    As far as making sure things aren't stolen, I could appreciate that. But...explain it as part of the process? Make sure your customer knows what to expect, maybe?
