Where the Deals Are.
You can spend a lot of time looking for a deal, or you can just go
straight to Ebay. Since there is so much competition among sellers,
that's usually where you'll find the best deals.
If you don't like the auction format, a lot of UTV
businesses now have online stores on Ebay. And the prices are
better than on their regular web sites!
Sellers take the feedback system seriously, so everybody
tends to "play nice" to keep their ratings high. Just make sure the
sellers have a good track record and have been doing business for a
while. That's actually good advice for buying from anyone.
