There has got to be a better way to sell stuff. Nobody reads the paper anymore, Ebay is just as big of a hassle, I dont get much traffic on my road (although I have had some luck selling GTs from the yard in the past)
I have had a running/ but needs carb work, 400cc atv posted for under $1,000. Several emails, mainly wanting to trade for $300 worth of cr@p. I got one this morning, called the guy back and he came out and looked at it, said he was going to get the cash and trailer. We shook hands and he left saying he would be back in an hour. 3 hours later, I called him... no answer, left a voice mail saying that I had another guy interested if he changed his mind, let me know. The bastard never called back.
I have had some LT engines listed for $100 each/ ran when pulled. A guy jacked me around for a week saying he worked not too far away and would come out after work, but preferred to check it out during lunch(that wont work for me). Cancelled at the last minute 3 times. He went on and on about how he didnt trust people who sold stuff on CL, being a full time cop, and wanted to hear it run. If it didnt smoke, knock and had good compression, he would buy it. I told him that he was looking for a $300 engine and I didnt sell those and wished him good luck finding what he needs. He is still bugging me, wanting to swing by at lunch to check it out.
I have a WTB ad for a non runnner golf cart, that I plan on using for a project, and stated that I dont want to drive too far to get it. I have been getting emails from guys over 100 miles away for $800 carts. I posted a pic of my project because post with pics get more hits. Some jack wagon offered to buy the project that isnt even for sale for $250, I have been offered $1000 and still wont sell it
I am about half tempted to load up all the junk I plan on selling in the near future and take it to a consignment auction so I dont have to deal with all of the BS
