Re: For Sale - on Ebay

Would that include postage or is it buyer collects? You have to be so careful with ebay!

@Minivanman  You obviously did not read all the sales blurb....

 

Delivery of all, or parts, as required, can be arranged with the seller, who has facilities for delivery

I did actually but also noticed was that they did not deliver to the UK?

Not bad thinking.

Talked to Mrs Minivan about it this afternoon and we reckoned it would make a rather cool looking house.

Cash on collection or Paypal?

 

------------------------------

 

I see it's for sale as used. Shouldn't that be spares or repair? As according to ebay rules if it doesn't work or has parts missing. How will they cope with an item not as described return?

Re: For Sale - on Ebay

There was something a while back on TV where they took a plane and tried to find as many ways as they could to "upcycle" it into new things, such as making furniture out of the seating, lamps out of framework, extracting gold from electrical connections to make a ring (which failed, not enough gold), and best of all, a garden office out of a section of fuselage, was a brilliant idea, can't recall the name of the show or whether it was on BBC or C4...

Strange auction that... it's a plane fueselage for sale... but they're removing this, that, x, y, z... all of which you can then buy back from them seperately. Or you can just buy the bits you want and stuff the poor soul that actually buys the rest of the fuselage not knowing what has been sneakily removed.

 

I smell a negative feedback being earned.... lol

@shutter you can call it an early xmas pressie if you like... i'm sure my neighbours won't mind Funny (and if they do i'll move it over to manston - they're not busy anymore lol)

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: For Sale - on Ebay

Yeah... sure is...  can you imagine putting your car ( the one that doesn`t yet go..! ).. for sale on those conditions  ? ? 

 

When I saw the linky, originally, there were already 86 "watchers"  ! ! .. ( maybe they were just curious to see what it actually fetches at the end.. )

 

Sorry, can`t afford it, (or any bits) for your Xmas prezzy... !
