A good friend of mine informed us of a great website for buying several used items, however, he did advise us that all of the items on the website were government surplus and that we’d have to pick them up ourselves. Apparently, local governments all across the country have a genuinely bad habit of getting rid of items that are still in great condition, and while this is bad news for the local tax dollars, it does provide a great chance to purchase a solid item at a relatively reduced price! The website works as an auction, so, of course, I found myself bidding on numerous items. The 1 item that I won was a five-ton air conditioner. I had to drive roughly two hours to pick up the air conditioning unit, however, if you consider that I only paid fifty dollars for the unit, the drive was absolutely worth it. When I researched that particular name brand air conditioner, I found that the average online price was between more than twice what I paid for it. I genuinely could not believe that I was able to purchase the a/c unit for such a cheap price. To keep my excitement at a minimum, I convinced myself that the air conditioning unit was not entirely working. When I arrived back at home, I worked on the a/c equipment right away. I was shocked to find that it worked just fine and without any complications. To make matters even better, the a/c method was in excellent looking, cosmetic condition. It looked like the office where it had come from had never even used the item. Since there was entirely no reason for them to get rid of the item, needless to say, I got a genuinely great deal on the air conditioning system.
