IMO, better deals are always to be had from those folks because generally they arent trying to cover cost, plus overhead, plus whatever... They just want to get what they can out of their stuff to move on to the next thing.
I've had great experiences from businesses as well, so not knocking them, just saying they arent the only way to go.
Best advice is to email the seller, ask about the club, and always CHECK FEEDBACK!
When I leave feedback I try to leave specific notes about what I received, versus the standard "good item" blah blah... that way anyone looking at my remark will get an accurate feel for what transpired in my case.
In addition, dont be afraid of used equipment at the local shop. The golfsmith here in Orlando has decent used equipment at good prices, plus you get to look at and feel what you are buying before you drop your dollars.
