Centurion Services Group is an AS IS WHERE IS auction, that means when you buy equipemnt from this company it can be in any condition; you do have the ability to inspect it, so make sure you do this.  

If you are bidding online, you are gambling.  One dealer I know said, "hey just know that this equipment is sold as is and probably needs a complete over haul...Know this going in and you will do fine."  

The problem with that is if you don't know, you may inadvertanlty purchase equipment thinking it may actually be a good workiing instrument and it could be, but its a gamble.  I would estimate for me, 7 out of 7 scopes I purchased were in need of a complete overhaul, and I paid wholesale plus the 17% buyers premium and shipping.  But that is okay, it was the risk I took.  I should have done my homework better.
So just know going in there may be some bargains, but if you are bidding on line you are gambling, bottom line.  Don't just take it from me, Erik Wilensky the vice president of Centurion Services Group said, "We don't touch this equipment, we just sell it."  Porter hospital,st francis healthcare systems, sault ste marie,silver cross hospital use Centurion service to sell their equipment.
