snap on box with tools :'(

#1 by v8victim , Sun Aug 12, 2012 9:44 am

I want an l200,really want an l200 and want one fast... Sooo to fund one I'm selling my snap on box and tools
I bought these new in January this year for a little over £2,000 and they hardly get used so instead of them sitting in the corner collecting dust I thought they could go to pay for an l200 (well towards paying)
It's on eBay at the moment and finishs in an hour.. as it is its upto 650 with an hour to go. But I think its worth more then this I'd be happy with £1200 even then the new owner would be getting £800 off the rrp!
Anyhow here is the item number 110928982548
I'm open to offers thanks

Best of luck. It's had 20 bids with six bidders so it's likely to heat up in the last few minutes.

You can end the auction and re list with a reserve. Or buy it now open to offers. That one always generates a lot of interest. Or take your chances and hope it sells well.

To be perfectly frank, the posting / advert could be quite a bit better. I think that, if you wait a week then re-post it from your computer and take a bit more time with the ad, you should get more for it.

Some quick tips, if you're going to relist it. I hope you realise that these suggestions are meant to be constructive - I'm not having a pop at you

Take some more pictures, and try to show as many of the tools as possible
Also try to get some pics of the entire box, to show how good its condition is
Time the listing so that it ends on a Saturday or Sunday evening, which increases the number of people who will be browsing as the ad comes to an end.
Try to stick to the facts and leave out the "every other f@cker out there" bits
The added info bits don't come across well, either. Just respond to each individual question, rather than post your frustration in the ad
Detail every last one of the tools. Every spanner, driver, allen key, etc. That helps bulk up the ad and makes people realise they're getting a lot for their money
Set a reserve (this doesn't get displayed). If you genuinely want £1,000 then set that as the reserve - you can always strike a bargain with the closest bidder if the reserve is not met.
Only set a buy-it-now price if you genuinely know what you're aiming for. If that's £1,300 say, then set the buy-it-now at £1,300. If you don't have a figure in mind, don't set one.

Seriously investigate delivery options. Specifying Collection-Only **vastly** limits your audience. Look at pallet delivery companies online, put in the weight, then put that in the ad.
It will probably come out at somewhere between £60 and £100 so, once you know this, state the postage cost "or collection from xxxxx at £0.00"

All of the above may take you a day or so to get sorted (especially the postage charges) but don't worry about not having the ad on for 7 or 10 days; most ads only hot up in the last 24 hours. Just try to have the auction end at around ~8pm on a Saturday or Sunday night.

Good luck!

thats some cracking advice there bud, some of my best bargains have come from collection only/very few details/poor pictures/no pictures/badly spelt/badly worded/wrong category type of ads. Some of the things I've bought must have brought tears to the eyes of the sellers who were hoping for a lot more. I have found (when selling on ebay) is when you get something wrong then you remember it for next time

good luck selling your stuff mate, and the right truck will come along at just the right time I'm sure

Seems you might have had a result with that.... you can sell it for more now.

Just make sure he doesn't leave you shit feedback when it was his fault for not reading the advert.
