I have two pc's to sell, which with a good GPU can run all modern titles without any issue, but where the hell are you supposed to sell stuff that isn't eBay (screw eBay).

This is where I buy and sell my parts these days. All that requires for buyers protection is to use paypal (not gift) so there is a small fee:

You can also ask for a price check too which is cool :)

Local paper, or look around local shops some supermarkets and places like co-op I noticed have boards for local advertising.

Have posted there, too. Only place I've actually had any interest lol. Trying to sell them as a full build is probably my issue, but the fact the PC's are so solid and cheaper than anything you can buy new, I don't get why its so difficult, perfect for a gaming starting pc, lol.

I know its pretty tough to sell complete PC's. I can kind of understand why but very frustrating as you get more for your money. I know I usually look for parts more for complete builds so you "could" split but thats going to be a pain.

Fingers crossed :)

Oh Have you joined their discord channel? Its pretty active mind

For best value I would say use this reddit page https://www.reddit.com/r/HardwareSwapUK/

High end parts are not too common to sell for good value on gumtree.

I haven't, but I may.

The most frustrating thing is taking timestamp pics every 5 days just to re-post, lol.

I don't mind splitting them, but I see people posting all the time (sites like this) for a PC for the family, some terrrible pre-built for £500-700 and I'm selling a used but insanely good 2500K with 8gb ram etc for sub £275 already fully built, makes no sense -.-

Ignore the HUKD wannabe mods.

Lokal isn't great, everyone knows that. It may get better though, who knows.

Anyway, ebay is your best bet unfortunately. If you really don't want to use them, just list it on lokal, gumtree, shpock as they're free anyway. No harm.

I am trying to tell you that if you say anything negative about Lokal, you may find your thread is edited or removed (as has been the case on numerous previous occasions).

I would advise removing the criticism from the thread description.

J4GG4, on the other hand, just has an issue with me because he was ridiculed for his attitude towards Burger King in another thread.

It's ok, if my thread is removed, I will be just fine mate, thanks for the heads up tho.

Lokal is crap regardless if my thread is here or not, lol..

If you have a Facebook account, they have a marketplace where you can either buy or sell, plus I think that it shows what ever area you live in. I've never used it but have seem it many time.
#19
As above see if you have a local Facebook selling group. I refurbish and sell PCs and Laptops on mine. They go well. Plus no fees and no buyers messing you about via ebay / paypal. As soon as they take posession, thats it. No comeback.

Avforums or ebay 1 pound listing fee. Not had any issues except once on ebay recently with a guy trying to knock money off after receiving it for an issue i already described.
