Looks like my reply didn't post....

 

Yes WWBz will drive north and make pit stops along the way.

After auction we can set up times and pit stops all the way up to British Columbia.... so let me know if you are interested in transportation.

 

I will also go to the Spring Fling and sell ... but for probably a bit more than $2 each to cover the transport North and back. THose darn gas prices !

Just to be clear.

I will go down to Fort Lewis to pick up as many of the cans as my vehicle will fit including the cans purchased by anyone who wants me to drive theirs North and can meet me on my voyage North at predetermined times and locations.

 

I will ALSO bring some of mine and who ever would like me to bring their purchases to the Fling. At the Fling I will sell MY cans for a little bit more to whoever did not prepurchase - as those cans have journeyed far at $1.20 per litre in the van. I am not out to make a huge profit on this or anything.

 

Just hope superhoser wins the auction !

what if someone compiled a list from everyone wanting cans and what they would pay.... say 10 - 30cal ammo cans for upto $3.00 each.... or $30.00.

 

Then we could look for auctions/sales within price range rather than last minute. All we would have to figure out would be delivery options, and a huge pizza event would/could fix that.....

 

Just thinking pro-active..... (yes, unlike myself normally).....

I was just crunching some numbers and I still think we are missing out on a good buy.

 

Heres what I came up with, correct me where you think Im wrong.

 

Lot 7402 has 656 cans. I used 10% as a factor for throwing out bad cans. Not sure if thats accurate or not. Some of you who in the past have bought a large stash of cans could correct that. Maybe its more, who knows.

 

So using what I mentioned at 10%

 

The bid with 1 hour left was $1020

 

Plus a 10% buyers premium =102

Plus state sales tax at 8.9% = 90

 

so all told it comes to $1212. throw out 10% bad leaves 591 good cans

 

1212 divided by 591 comes to 2.05 per can.

 

I dont know about anyone else, but even at $3 a can I think thats a good price. If there was a way to get firm orders from people so that someone wouldnt get stuck with a garage full of ammo cans, I see no reason why we couldnt pull this off. Im open to comments or suggestions. Also, if you e-mail me let me know what the maximum you would be willing to pay for your cans. Ive checked around and most surplus stores seem to want a minimum of about 5.99 a can. The only variable in this that could mess us all up is damaged cans.

 

Even at 50% bad cans they would still only cost 3.69 per can, still a good price I think.

 

If anyone would want to email me with FIRM intentions as to what they are willing to put forward in money, I may be willing to set this up for a future auction. But, I need FIRM orders, please.

 

Also, when and if a time comes where we were to win an auction, someone other than myself who has a pickup truck would need to accompany me to pick them up. I probably could handle 30-50% of an order in one trip. So, lets look at a future auction and see what happens.

 

Also, any corrections to my formula will be gladly concidered.

 

Oh Yea, email me at x116yb@yahoo.com to let me know if you want to be part of a purchase.

 

I live in Maple Valley about 15 minutes from the I-5 AND HIWAY 18 interchange so it wouldnt be too far out of most peoples way if they were traveling the i-5 corridor.

 

I will start a database with name, amount wanted and max price willing to pay and see where it goes from there.

 

Thanks

If you are really interested in facilitating this, start a new thread/topic and take it from there.

 

Thanks for the offer!
