sale by an independent dealer
Explanation:
Im FREIEN VERKAUF wird mobiles Anlagevermögen freihändig verwertet. Das bedeutet, daß der Verkauf der Positionen (anders als bei Auktionen) nicht an einem festgesetzten Termin, sondern in Absprache mit dem zuständigen Mitarbeiter der Firma Dechow erfolgt.

Peer comments on this reference comment (and responses from the reference poster)
agree  Ingeborg Gowans: I found the same website, just not sure how that relates to cars and trucks?/ o.k. and together with Jochen's commentary that makes perfect sense then. Ialso found "freier Verkauf" as opposed to subscription sales (theater tickets)
13 mins
  -> Danke, Ingeborg! If you go further into the website, you'll see that one category of their sales items are vehicles.
agree  Jochen König: In this case it should mean independent dealership as opposed to authorised dealers.

  -> Thank you, Jochen!
agree  Nicholas Krivenko: Independent dealership it is, in my humble opinion.
