All links are now tested and working - I only updated the links from main menu this evening, so you might need to clear your browser cache. There shouldn't be a problem with the links on the Forum main index page.

Nor me, likewise I have cleared my cache and browsing history IE Windows 10.
On both Sales & Wanted I get a second's flash of pictures, but that's all.

Perhaps I've already bought enough machines :#:

Works well on the iPad, well done. Can we not insist on prices against everything ?

Although I am still to see these latest adverts, I have to echo the need for …….
* Prices
* Comprehensive photos from all angles including the inside
* An idea of location

It's pointless leaving any of the above out as they're all the first things potential buyers are going to ask. Often in the past we've seen adverts without prices and the defence offered being "I'm not sure what it's worth". Well if that's the case how are you going to know if any offers are decent?

I personally don't respond to anybody asking for offers, it suggests to me they're too embarrassed by their prices, and is going to lead to me driving across the country only to find they want me to pay for their grandchildren to go through university.

There is nothing wrong with a concept of an offer. If you are opening an item up to an audience as has been discussed by many over the years price is contentious and people have chosen not to help people who ask for advise, as such where do you put a price on your precious machine. All we have to go on are auction results which as we all know vary widely. You could ask a ridiculous sum that will get laughed at and ignored or too low wondering if you could have got more. Sealed bid auctions cover this like Shpock and others, people place an offer and seller goes for the highest or preferred bid......you often see people start high starting, make an offer, but I for one always get put off when they start too high as you know where they think something is worth and cannot be bothered trying to set expectations.....it is all about choice I guess...

I bought a machine through one of the many Facebook groups recently, pretty much same concept, make an offer, I did and we negotiated somewhere in the middle, both parties happy.....

I see Steve has updated his site and suggests their new auction site will launch shortly, starting with the clear out stuff. Will be interesting to see how this online service will go.....lots of options

That works if the item is close and you don't mind making the journey twice. Once to check it out and again to buy it.
All I'm recommending is vendors put themselves in the buyers' position and preempt the questions they themselves would want answers to.
It makes for an easier experience all round

Agreed, I have often been too British in the past and not complained when being disappointed on seeing an item that has not been perhaps transparent by a seller....
