Welcome aboard Victor. Sounds like you face a business decision. I've seen a lot of great stuff on IRS that was too far to see, and would have been counter-productive to have shipped or rent a truck to go pick up. I'm a scrounger, but i'm also a hobbyist--so i've got time to wait for the right gear at the right price. With industrial auctions, either you will invest the funds to do an on-site inspection before bidding and shipping IF you win--or you take a shot in the dark, buy the great deal, spend the shipping only to perhaps you got a dud. Oddly enough, the best "business decision" may be to buy new, or if lightly used you may find better shipping from a place like Woodwerks in Wauconda, IL (Chicago). Probably a few similar places in the Atlanta area.
