Thank you for your interest in purchasing my bobcat. The bobcat is in perfect working condition, garage kept, with nothing mechanically wrong - like new! If you decide to buy it, you\'ll receive all the papers, owner manual, keys, a buy-sell contract already signed by me. For this transaction I want to use Yahoo Autos because I want to have a smooth and fast transaction. The bobcat is at the shipping company warehouse in Houston, TX and from there it will be shipped to buyer\'s address. You will have to make the payment to Yahoo Autos and they will hold the money until you receive the bobcat. ONLY AFTER you receive the bobcat and you inspect it (for 5 days) they will release the payment to me. The inspection time period will begin as soon as you receive the bobcat at your requested address. During all this time Yahoo Autos will hold the money into a trust account. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the bobcat before decided to buy it. In this way we are both protected.
The final price is $2,500 with shipping costs and insurance included. The price is low because I want to sell the bobcat very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago and I along with my daughter we decided to sell the house and move to my sister in Galveston, TX. I can\'t afford to take days off my work for this sale so I\'m trying to sell it online.
If you are really interested in purchasing the bobcat please send me your full name, shipping address and your phone number. Yahoo Autos will notify you all the details about the shipping and payment.

I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible.

Thank you,
Laura Schofield
