Allow me to explain. At this time I’m serving in Air base in Comox, an Air Force military base near British Columbia. I have the car here with me, fully serviced and ready for a new owner. Due my last part of training, which is the most important, I am not allowed to get out of the unit or call whenever I want.
The reason I’m selling this car way below market value is because I don’t have time for negotiations and I need money before January 31 for my next house in Air base in Cold Lake, Alberta. As I’m unable to make the transaction in person, I have prearranged the deal with eBay Motors. The deal includes free delivery because as you may know we can ship a car/bike/etc from home to the base and back one time in a year for free.
The transaction through eBay Motors offers you the chance to test and inspect the vehicle for 5 days without a payment to the seller. You will send the payment to eBay Motors and they will hold the funds until you receive and inspect the car and decide to whether you want keep it or not.
If by any reason you find something you don’t like about it, you can send the car back on my expense and you will receive a full refund of your money from eBay.
I need to know if you are interested so I can ask eBay to send you the details on this deal. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for eBay (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can move forward with this transaction.
