I just thought you might have had some other buyer\'s interested in buying the Vehicle from you so i think the best way for me to outbid them is only by offering you an additional $700.AUD to your asking price on your ad Gumtree, But let me start by saying i won\'t for the inspection of the Vehicle my self due to where i am presently,but i have a pick-up Agent who will be contacting you about where and when the picking of the Vehicle will taking place after have completed the payment transaction with you .
But if you dont mind telling me just a little bit more about the present mechanical condition and how often do you do the service and if possible the history ?. I will be waiting to read from you before i can proceed with the payment immediately

to me Good to hear from you again Thank you for this details, Well in regards to the Vehicle am very much interested in buying it and paying for it right away so you don't have to look around for any other buyer for it. I'm actually buying it for my Brother at home in Ontario as a surprise, But before i can send it to him i have to make sure the Vehicle is in a good condition . I hope you understand my point that there is no way i come to do the inspection of the Vehicle my self as have said earlier besides the Vehicle will be picked up and transported to Ontario where my Parents stays, So whatever you tell me about the good and the bad aspect of the Vehicle is what i will believe and also inform the Pick-up agent that will be coming over to pick the Vehicle
After have completed the payment the agent will contact you about where and when the pick up will take place and they will also be of assistance to do the change of ownership when they get there. but before i proceed with the Payment is there is any problem which you're yet to mention that i should know , please let me know now meanwhile can you please please take the add off online now till we complete the transaction and please send me your PayPal email and i will make the Payment right now

Surely what sort of idiot offers 700 more to a vehicle, when the price is stated negotiable. plus i googled the address and came across another report of this.
