Been looking for an item, As they are fairly bulky its a collection only item usually.

So looking fairly close to home. Found one that ebay says is only 5 miles. Err more like 15-20 but thats OK.

Check the terms, Working daytime, No evening collections and no collections on Sunday. Saturday it is then... err yes but only between
9am and 11am..

Maybe i should have titled this howto rule out a lot of buyers and sell your item for pennies.

    These stipulations would put lots of other people off. If you can meet these criteria you should get a bargain. :-)

    The delivery slots are pretty specific, but I've had buyers who want to turn up at 11:30pm at night!

    But on the plus side, at least you'll know when they are not there to rob them.

    I never understand why people advertise when there are not going to be people in their property - Facebook and eBay.

    Ive lost it... I cannot find the item now.. Damn looks like i may miss out on a bargain. Silly of me not to add it to my watch list.

    Cannot remember when it ended either so maybe i missed it? I bet it went for pennies.

    Is it in your internet history? Open the pages and see if it is listed there.

    Same here - before we started doing eBay as a business a few years back we sold a sofa to a guy that turned up at 2.30am :eek: to collect in a van we were convinced was stolen.....he then confessed he didn't even hold a UK driving licence :eek:
