Can anyone confirm if this is a legit site and would they recommend it? I need a few tools and the deals looked pretty good.

Yes the company is ok. I do know several of those businesses…they have closed because of no work. I know several more that have closed and a couple more that are in the process of closing…no work. Most of them have already closed their web sites. Unless things in my area gets to going again soon there will be more closing this Winter…no work. It takes a pile of money to operate a big shop like you see on the auction site.

Serious,

IRS Auctions is a legitimate enterprize. I’ve visited a couple of auctions in my area. Unfortunately, I got out bid on everything. Hey , I still keep looking for good deals. By the way, you can find good deals on Craigs List and Woodnet.net too.

Rat.

I bought a drum sander from them. They are legit. There is loading fee and they add on 10% of the final bid price.

I have also bought with good results, when the auction was about a 100 miles from here. The problem is that the stuff is ”as is where is” and it’s not practical to inspect and bid on something a thousands of miles away.
