Now the fence is done and I have 25 panels left over. So, I posted on Craigslist as free and had an email in 2 minutes, then the phone rang and texts started. Someone is going to pick them up Friday night after they get off work. 

I was worried about what to do with them, considering I got them free. Craigslist is good.

The good stuff sells(goes) immediately. A person has to be on constantly or just get lucky to get the deal.

They also have something called Freecycle here for people who want to give stuff away.

I love Craigslist to , but when I post something for sale there I specify no texts or e-mails, eliminates the spammers and the idiots that text you at 2 am ! Although some still do , I just ignore them ! WTG on getting rid of your stuff bgkid...

I have some pretty old privacy fence I need ot get rid of. As soon as I take the rest down, I will Free is on CL. It's surprising how many people will want it even thoughit's bascially firewood.

 

Glad you got rid of it.

Craigslist is the best. Although some complain about it, I've bought & sold many things with no issues. Over the past 5 years or so, I bet I've gotten 20 cords of free hardwood firewood.
I see used fence for free or cheap a lot, it seems to go very quickly.
