Selling your HV40 and gear? Open to Leasing to own? Please Read.
I am looking for an HV40 camera (with warranty) package with a Letus 35 mini, possibly other lenses, and additional equipment to pay on monthly after an initial down payment has been made.
I was wondering if any sellers would be interested in accepting an initial down payment and drafting up a monthly payment contract/plan to own - lease to own after the contract is fulfilled.
Please contact me with the details of what you would offer via PM or direct email message if you are looking to sell your equipment and are open to the arrangement of a down payment, leasing your equipment, and monthly payment plan.

Your high. If you think anyone on this forum , is going to send you a camera for a down payment and trust you will pay them monthly until the balance is nil, you have to be smoking crack. Im guessing you don't have credit for this very reason, otherwise you would be using a credit card to purchase a camera and pay the card co. monthly. Maybe im wrong, but for a one time poster to come in to this communtiy and ask a member that dosen't know you from a hole in the wall to trust you will pay them is ludacrise. LOL Draw up a contract.lol lol lol lol

By my quick guesstimate, had the OP put aside one measly dollar every day since joining the forum in March '08, he'd have close to $600 in his camera fund by now!

Contracts. Many people and companies do leasing to own. In fact, in most cases it benefits the seller as the overall price ends up being higher for the equipment. Some of us prefer not to use credit. No need for all the rude responses.

By asking someone to lease to you, is using credit, And I wasn't being rude. Im just calling it how I sees it, Your probably a great guy, but one on drugs none the less.lol
So if you were to send someone , say, two hundred dollars. And then they sign your contract. Then you decide not to pay the seller. In order for him to try to get his money, he would have to fly to LA. Go to the court house and pay to file a claim, then fly back home and wait till the court date, then fly back to go to court, then get a judgement, then wait even longer to get the money the judge decides you owe, if he decides you owe. See where this is going, Now ask your self, Do I think anyone outside my city would want to chance going through that hassle to sell me a camera.
It would cost three times the value of the camera to try to get the owed money. But of course that wouldn't happen , because you would pay earlier every month.

There are many companies which specialize in business equipment leasing, however most of them probably won't want to bother with purchases under ~$10K, and will expect you to be set up as a licensed, insured business with some sort of track record. And what do you mean by "some of us prefer not to use credit" just how do you think a lease works, anyway? (Hint: if you're not considered 'credit-worthy,' you're not likely to be 'lease-worthy,' either.)

I sold a FRIEND a laptop in high school like this. It took him forever to pay me. Why would ANYONE do this for a stranger in another state who would just disappear.
Do you know how hard it is to collect on anything. Municipalities can't do it on parking fines. You can win 100 judgments and all you will have is court fees and 100 pieces of paper.
This must be a CA thing. You have what, all of 2 posts? Did you know there is this thing called a credit card? As long as you can fill out the form and send it in, (Try real hard)
these people will cover your purchase and you can pay it off with payments. WHOA!!!

Thank you for participating in my survey. Appreciate the responses and honesty. You are right, the idea is stupid and I was looking for as much feedback as possible to complete this concept that I'm about to shoot. Cheers mates.

Sounds like the Vic-ster is back!
2009 October 9th, 20:47
What survey is that? And im even more curious as to your concept.
2009 October 9th, 23:57
A survey of how stupid people in LA are. Great concept for a movie. Can I borrow it? I promise I'll pay you off in payments as soon as the checks start rolling in.
