To me, there\'s no problem if you want to send someone else to inspect the Airstream on your behalf. But the fact is, I don\'t want to lose other potential buyers... In order to prove your intention to purchase, 50% of the total purchase price is required as a deposit to show that you have sufficient available funds to cover the purchase. Once you have paid the deposit I will consider you as my buyer and I will make all of the necessary arrangements with the parties concerned. For your peace of mind, the payment deposit will be made by bank transfer and will held in escrow by Google Checkout until after your inspection ends. If for some reasons you are not completely satisfied and you don\'t want to proceed further, the security deposit is totally refundable.
Get back to me and let me know if you agree with these terms and I will start the transaction with Google Checkout. As soon as I will have the payment confirmation from them, I can say that we have a deal and I will keep the Airstream for you. Once you have the unit inspected and agree to buy, you will pay me the difference and Google Checkout will release the deposit to me. It\'s an easy process that can be completed without too much hassle.
As my upcoming deployment draws near, managing the time factor is an important issue. I sincerely appreciate your consideration of this matter.
Please advise me of your decision.
Will

In our case Google Checkout acts as a trustee to ensure that all the bases are covered before any money changes hands. As a precautionary measure designed to ensure that you have the necessary funds available to cover your purchase, an advanced payment of 50% of the total price is required prior to commencement of transport. For your piece of mind the security deposit will be held in escrow by Google Checkout till all conditions are met and the sale is final.
If you agree to the above-mentioned terms, please email me back with the following information:
- Your Full Name and Shipping Address (Home Address, City, State, zip/Postal Code) - Info. required by Google Checkout, in order to complete the necessary formalities, and then proceed with the purchase agreement.
- Your Phone Number: (Home, Mobile, Office) - Info. required for transportation purposes, our logistics coordinator will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1-day ahead of arrival. In this way you can communicate what time-frame works for you to receive the unit.
I look forward to your response,
Will

In our case, I will pay the fees since I\'m the seller
