a Power wheel chair for $4000
No, I am selling it and this person in Oklahoma wants to buy sight unseen for $4000. She has agreed in a text to buy this"as is". Does the"as is" law apply to this contract if is shipped to Oklahoma. It will cost about $2500 to ship it and I don't want her to say she wants to return it and get her money back.
If the chair is working properly when it is picked up by the transporting people and for some reason it is not working when it gets there, where do I stand with the "as is" agreement.
The buyer has tyold me that She is sending $6,590 and for me to take $4100 ($100 for my trouble) and she will give me the name and address of the shipper and she wants me to pay them $2,490 out of the check she is sending me. Is this a problem, Or do I have her set up the delivery on her own.
I am skeptical because, this women is spending $6590 on something she has not seen.
The fact is, that the machine may have an intermittent problem that sometimes appears rarely. If I make her aware of this and she still
agrees to buy it "as is", then if something happens can she return it?
and who will have to pay the shipping?
She has told me that the check is in the mail and she has instructed me to do what I told you. So you are saying that I should send the check back to her and have her set up the shipping arrangements and have her agree that this is a "as is" sale with no returns even if it gets damaged in transport.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX much better. I will do what you suggest. Gene
