Selling up

Post by Terry Phillips » Wed Nov 27, 2019 5:07 pm

The day has come where my health does not allow me to do any physical work due to the Arachnoiditis getting worse and worse. My problem is I have so much stuff that will be imposable to list each item. What would be the best way to sell all this stuff or do I post it on here under headings ie Hand Tools, Machinery, Vehicles and so on.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also where to advertise bearing in mind all these fraudsters and gangsters are just waiting to pound me.
Do I sell in dribs and drabs which can take forever

Hi Terry sorry man not good news.
I would suggest you put all the items on a spread sheet with prices and post it here if allowed.

Hi Terry.
Sorry to hear the sad news and I think we all know how close to your heart this is.
As I am sure you have a mountain of stuff I think the guys on the forum would love to know what you have and maybe have first refusal. Whilst I appreciate the fact that you can't list each and every item maybe list what you don't have 😊.
I know I may be looking for something you have.
Good luck thoughts and prayers are with you.

Please just give me a couple of days so I can try and go through the stuff and list what I can. I have difficulty doing physical things so please bear with me. The Arachnoiditis is a horrible condition and extremely painfull so I am sorry if there might be a delay I will do my best to list and price the stuff. Thanks

Maybe taking photo's will be easier for you and the guys on the forum can pick out what they want or offer prices for the things shown.

I think Herman has the plan pictures. Just need to get as much stuff in one picture as I can,
Give me a day or two to find a helper to pick the stuff up and replace it so I can get them cramped up.
Thanks Herman
Is any one is after a item you think I might have then let me know and I can tell you if I have it or not.

Also keep in mind, we are a bunch of cheap skates and will offer you next to nothing.....make your price and let people negotiate from there.
You can never have enough Garages :-(

Alternatively make a
