    I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to know if anyone knew anymore sites and figured why not keep it in one thread?

    I know of Municibid.com and AuctionsInternational.com

    Anyone have some more?

    Obenhauf and Repocast have a lot of good stuff often.

    Just have to watch out for buyer fees. Some sites will ding 15-20%. That's how they make their money.

    The thing that sucks about online auctions is that you end up bidding against yourself from time to time. The owner of the item is the person who's bumping your bid. There are some good places out there but like someone said before me you need to watch out for buyer's premiums.

    I tend to stay local, easier to inspect and also you can get hands on what you are looking at. Richie Brothers has a local lot so there tends to be a HUGE selection here when they have there auctions.

    auctoins are not like they used to be i think now most sell stuff at what you could buy it for at a dealer plus youy have to pay that buyers premium which is a big joke makes me not really want to buy anything .
