  7. 7.  Never make untrue claims and own up quickly to mistakes made in descriptions of the used equipment.  Customers are not always right, but you have to make them think they are!  Losing some profit on a sale where a mistake was made (by either side) usually pays off with future business and referrals….always keep the relationship in mind.
