Need a vehicle
Hello again all. I've been scouring craigslist and island trader for weeks trying to find a vehicle for my family when they get here. I have been renting a car until they get here with money from house sale. Well they get here a week from today and renting is not going to cut it much longer. I just want to know if anyone knows of any vehicles or if they see any on STT to let me please know. I really don't want to spend more than $5000 but I will for right vehicle. Would prefer SUV/Crossover type. Backseat is mandatory with baby. Not adverse to jeep or truck even buy the road I'm on makes higher clearance vehicle necessary. Thanks again
Oh. The only other requirement is stopping and starting when it's supposed to
I have a car on STX for sale. A Subaru Outback "island car". I just bought it from some nice folks on the 24/7 FB page a few weeks ago when I thought I'd be living here. Runs fine. Sunk a bunch of money into it for repairs just last week. But now that I have to leave because I'm dying I need to get rid of it and I need the money back to get off the island.
I can send you more details about the car if you like if you're interested and on STX. Just PM me.
If anyone else on STX needs a car let me know.
You mean someone isn't going to just deliver me a vehicle? Ok fine that sarcasm may be unwarranted but I've put much legwork into finding a car. My work schedule makes it tough to look very much during the week. All I was asking was if someone knew something. I understand I'm not the only guy on island looking but I was trying to expand options here
I wasn't trying to be sarcastic - just wanted to make sure you realized how competitive that market is.
I know someone who was selling a vehicle, but I can't remember what kind it is. I will check with him tomorrow for more details.
I have another friend who was looking for the same thing you are, and it was tough for her, too. I don't know that she found it yet, either.
Geez, maybe I shouldn't even bother to help.
You may try checking the message boards at Red Hook Mail Services, East End Secretarial Services both located upstairs at Red Hook Plaza, ck. bulletin boards at The St. Thomas Yacht Club, one at Mandahl Market near Mahogany Run, E&M on Hull Bay Road and Hull Bay Hideaway, as well as Daily News and the Island Trader.Good Luck.
I looked and looked for 3 weeks before I found something. I tried Craigs and drove all over the place looking for signs in windows. I can't remember how many numbers and e mails. Apparently a lot of sellers have defective voice mail etc. I got 9 calls after I found a car.
DON'T GIVE UP.
This on is on STX but as mentioned earlier, not expensive to ship to STT. Sounds like a good excuse to spend a weekend on STX checking out a few options since no luck so far on STT.
dont you find it interesting that when people do not bring their vehicle, it takes them forever to find one they like enough to buy
Well I would have loved to bring my truck but my lender wouldn't allow it and my wife's car was barely worth the shipping costs. Was tiny. And wouldn't have worked. But thanks anyways.
