VanDerBrink Auctions Complaint - Vanderbrink Auctions Complaint

Review by rippedandjipped on 2010-08-18
HARDWICK, MINNESOTA -- I participated in an online auction ran through proxibid for Vanderbrink Auctions. In this auction they had a Studebaker pickup truck I was interested in. Vanderbrinks described it as early 50's, a short box, complete, solid, and straight, with complete interior that needed work. After paying my $467.50 for the truck I drove 300 miles to get it and after getting it home find description was totally false, with the exception of the interior. (We picked it up after dark.)

The truck was a 1958 Studebaker, with the registration papers plainly clipped to the sun-visor. The top of the engine is missing. There are rust holes threw out the bed, cab, doors, and fenders. The only straight part of the truck is the hood. Fenders and doors have deep dents and creases. I'm posting this so others will not make the same mistake. I've bought 7 vehicles and 4 boats online and never had anything so falsely described.

ummm if it wasn't what was described, then why did you take it home? Seems like it would made sense to leave it there and request a refund.

It was so dark when we picked it up out in the feild, all we noticed was rust on bottom of door.
