They can be. If they think something is worth $4000 and you offer only $400
they would rather crush it then look like a chump. Some of that has to do
with the fact that they make money without side sales just by scrapping, and
have no money in the items (get them free or charge a recycling fee). Its
not just scrappers, even some collectors who get things free and think they
are worth major money will do the same thing because it is "not worth their
time" to deal with lower offers.
