1quick 1quick that gives me an idea lol... I feel like I should start a little side gig going to pick up items for people that are screaming deals while they are stuck at work or other obligations. That’s why I get so many of the deals that I do lol, I can be the first one there.

Alot of people working from home and can just leave at a moments notice. Good if you are a seller and you are also available. Bad if you are a buyer and have a job you actually have to go in for.

I always price my shit to sell quickly and sell it to either the first person to come by or the first person to pay with paypal or zelle to hold. If someone messages me at 9AM and says they can come at 6PM I tell them message me when you are ready to come by for address. Most of the time buyers forget and don't message me anyway or I sell it faster. If I am selling something with alot of interest and a buyer cannot come immediately I ask them if they are comfortable paying with paypal or zelle and tell them when you come out and if you don't want it I will refund. MOST buyers are fine with that. I just can't risk a sale on someone elses word. Especially with people on Facebook being so unreliable. Selling something more expensive like a used quad is different tho.

I have a drone listed for less than half of what it was new a couple months ago. People are still asking if they can have it for half of the half price....buncha cheapskates. I'm way below what other people are listing at.

Buddy of mine has his C6 Z06 with a built motor in it up for sale. Illiterate guy offered him a trade for a clap box like 2004 Cummins with a buncha shit. He wanted the vette PLUS 20k.

My buddy: "where are you even located?"
Trade offer: "country"
My buddy: "the fuck does that mean?"
Trade offer: "you ever here of the stanley steemer?"

Some blemishes and wear and tear from age. So does that mean k-mart rash up and down both sides, broken lights, gouged wheels? Dude is making more effort to not directly answer the questions than it would take to just answer the questions.

wait til it's warmer out and whatever price you're thinking of selling it for, double it.
After selling my ATV in 2 days I believe you. I need to sell one to fund having the other one fixed so I don’t want to wait too long.
