I had a down payment of $150 on a truck that cost $700 at auction. The Auction refused to give me the truck or give me money back because they had it on there contract that they will take the deposit and the truck.if I didn't pick up the car on time.

The problem that you have is that you accepted their rules of the auctioneer when you bid at the auction sale. There is probably a reasonable business reason for the requirement that property be picked up within two days, it would hardly seem worth it to file suit over $150. The court filing fee would be almost that much, and you have no guarantee that the judgment would be in your favor. If the truck has not been sold yet, I would think the auction would like to sell it and perhaps make an additional $50 from you on doing so. Why don't you try that.

I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would love a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
