Thought this looked like a useful tool (over on MSE). Locate local items for sale that require collection, maybe save some money without having to pay extra for delivery or arrange locally.

Some useful tips there too.

I've been trying it out tonight, found a couple of items that I'm interested in, that I had not already seen on eBay - mainly because they are listed in different categories to where I normally search. I think I may be using this several times a week.

That's great, it's very useful. Don't think it's possible to do such a search on eBay. Hopefully, can get some items for cheaper than usual by saving on delivery.

the main difference is that mse searches mainly local pick up so not as many people bid on the item meaning some times you can get a really good bargain but i find http://www.bargainchecker.com alot better

Tried both, the MSE one missed 100's of items?
Both worked but preferred the loaclbargainfinder one.

I'm with you on this one, giving someone a pound sometimes just feels wrong

I thought the MSE was good but that bargain checker is way better
MSE found 81 items within 10 miles
BC found 217 in same distance
