Our Video Policy
Aside from "is this still available", the most common question we get regarding our preowned gear is "can I get a video?" We'd like to clarify our position regarding these requests to assist you in making an informed decision regarding purchasing from our company.
Many people ask for videos because they're concerned the product in question is non-functional, and they feel a video would prove it's functionality. To this line of thinking, we would like to point out that we only accept PayPal as payment on social media/online sales, and PayPal offers full protection to the buyer in case of a damaged or missing item. We'd like to point out that many well-known scammers on social media have gladly sent videos of other people's products to make it seem they actually have the item in question, so please don't think a video is making you any safer. Please only use PayPal or a payment system with a buyer protection policy.
The second issue at hand is that we move a large amount of preowned gear, we may even be one of the top five preowned equipment resellers on social media, and our products come and go quickly, often too quickly for videos. All of our preowned gear is tested before being accepted into our inventory, and as stated above, PayPal covers the buyer in case of an issue later on (not that we'd let it get that far, we strive for 100% customer satisfaction). By the time we made it to the warehouse, took the video, edited it to comply with social media standards, and had it approved for listing, the item is generally sold. You're protected by PayPal - don't worry about videos.
Thirdly, we've been doing this for a while - nearly 10 years worth of buying and selling warning and radio equipment. There's a decent-sized group of people online that simply get their jollies off of watching lights flash, and we just don't have time to cater to these non-customers. We do have a YouTube page, and we will be making an effort to get some cool videos up of the unique lighting and sirens we get - but not at the expense of actual customers' requests and concerns.
We hope this post helps clear up our 'no-video' policy, and we're happy to answer any follow up questions you may have. We can be reached by email at Info@FleetWarning.com, or by phone at (800) 520-3382.
