What We Sell
Many of the parts and products DP EQUIPMENT sells are surplus from Government or Commercial sources. As such, items when stated as “NEW” have not been used for their intended purpose. Because this is surplus the Government or other entity was the first purchaser of the item, you are the second purchaser. With surplus a new item may or may not be in its original packaging. Unless you see the packaging in the picture assume it is not present. A lack of packaging does NOT mean the item is used or that it is not new. Surplus generally sells at a significant discount over list prices and the lack of packaging or a few scuff marks are the reasons. If you are expecting pristine items with sealed packaging like you would get at Wal Mart, Lowes, etc you need to go pay the full price at those stores!!!. Along these lines we have developed the following condition codes that apply to surplus material from the Government so you know what to expect:
New – Never used for its intended purpose. May have a few minor blemishes due to a lack of packaging. Original packaging materials may or may not be present. Example – Wrench never used on a bolt
Very Good – An item used a few times shows normal wear from its intended purpose. New items which have a users ID engraved on the item would also fall in this category. 100% functional not bent or broken.
Good – An item that shows significant use but is useable for its intended purpose. Item is not bent or broken.
Parts Only / Broken – An item that does not function as intended may need repair or is sold for parts. These items are sold as is No Returns are accepted EVER for ANY Reason on Parts Only / Broken items.
As Is – We cannot verify operation / condition of item. These items are sold as is No Returns are accepted EVER for ANY Reason on As Is Items.
Military Equipment Warning
DP EQUIPMENT sells surplus military equipment and parts thereof. Many military items do NOT comply with Governmental and Safety requirements for consumer and commercial products due to the original intended use of the product. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to be aware of these differences and take action to protect themselves, their employees, and sub-contractors. Some examples to non-compliance are around: guarding of rotating or other sharp parts, noise, and exhaust emissions.
CARC Paint Warning
DP EQUIPMENT sells surplus military equipment and parts thereof. Many military items and parts are painted with CARC Paint. CARC is an abbreviation for Chemical Agent Resistant Coating hereafter referred to as CARC. Due to its intended purpose CARC paint contains lead, other heavy metals and silica sand not normally found in commercial and consumer rated paints and coatings. Sandblasting, sanding and other dust producing activities involving CARC paint may create hazardous dust. The user must take all necessary precautions to protect their health, the health of their employees, the health of sub-contractors and to comply with Governmental environmental pollution laws regarding the disposal of paint residue.
International Buyers – Import duties, taxes VAT, and charges are NOT included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. Items which are sold as used are marked as such on the shipping manifest. Most countries do not charge import duties on used goods. Check your local regulations for more information. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below sale value or mark items as ‘gifts’ – DO NOT ASK…. United States and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
Not all products we sell are exportable to every country. We comply with US State Department, DOD, and US Commerce Control regulations. All international sales are verified against restricted and banned entity lists maintained by various agencies of the US Government. If buyer provided information is not sufficient to verify your identity DP EQUIPMENT may request additional documentation and verification information to satisfy Government regulations.
The cost and delays for export permits if required are the responsibility of the buyer. We will advise you if you need to apply for export license or permits for any products you wish to purchase.
