The FAQ make interesting reading, especially the one "Will I be able to physically view the items that are for sale?" Which in itself raises more questions than it answers.
However the most obvious Frequently Asked Question "Fees?" That's not there. And "What if I sell my machine privately after having left it with you for some weeks? Are you expecting me to pay you to get it back?"

here's to hoping it will have a wider reach? I have posted ads on this site but I don't think they get many eyeballs.

Maybe he'll start talking about IRL auctions more once the vaccinations are more widespread

Is the idea like a sealed bid auction? As I seller you want top money as I buyer you want a good deal. No one wants to pay retail prices unless you are desperate for a particular machine. Some kind of selling is better than none until live auctions can return.....

Just trying to get my head around Steve's latest project he announced yesterday:
http://www.collectorconnector.co.uk/
Looks interesting as you can still touch before you buy but I still prefer the buzz and competition of a live auction

Are you suggesting there’s been some sort of skullduggery in the past ?

Although I have bought machines from Steve when he ran at Huntingdon racecourse and also at the Elephant house, I would find it impossible to sell as HE never answers his emails or phone !
Once tried to sell a very collectible pinball (£1500 to £2000 ) with him and gave up, put it on eBay.
Also if your machine is at the elephant house, for people to inspect and buy, for several weeks, IS IT INSURED?
