I got a apple iMac g5 and I want to sell it on here or eBay, but what I wanted to ask an experienced hukd member was,

Because of he weight of the iMac, what courier would you suggest
And what should I be charging for delivery on price.

Cheers gratisaja.

Right that's not so bad, what courier would you suggest?

Your problem will be finding a courier who will cover screens, as they are few and far between, and if something happens to it in transit, you will not be covered.

I couldn't find one when I wanted to sell a monitor, so I gave up

I would use collect+ as it's only £3.49 for parcels up to 10kg from one shop to another in the uk

What are you hoping to get for it, also which model so I can look up the specs...
skullcreature#6
260 Is what I paid for it, i know I will never get more than 200 for it so say 165 including postage. Will post the pics in 5 mins

That is a good price depending on the specs and condition

Also you can't list it on here until 7 days from expiring this thread

mumbojumbo
It will weigh over 11kg for shipping and screens aren't covered under compensation cover for most couriers. Parcelforce don't cover screens with glass, which I think the iMac has.

I was thinking ups, I sell a lot on eBay (mackerr10) and I will make sure it is well bubble wrapped and boxed up. :)

Yeh checked a few sites, and I think it will go by city link.

So is it ok to tick this on the sale and trade section?

Nope you have to wait 7 days from expiring this thread before listing on the fs/ft section

It is a stupid rule but there's nothing you can do about it
skullcreature#15
But I was just asking about couriering, I wasn't selling it here.
skullcreature#16
So you think £165 is ok price, I just want it to go to a good home. I bought it thinking I could get away from windows and learn about apple, but am a windows man and find windows a lot easier.
skullcreature#17
The funny thing is, when I get the iMac and the 360 (on the hukd selling and trade), and going to buy a decent pc lol.
skullcreature#18
Well might stick on eBay then, what couriers cover insurance for an iMac?
dxx#19
£165 for an eight year old computer? I think that might be a little optimistic, when you consider that 2 year old core 2 duo laptops with exponentially better specs than this sell for that sort of figure. I saw one of these old machines on sale in a charity shop window for £30, which might be a slightly more accurate valuation, unless you can find some poor deluded mug to punt it on to.

Hi, do you have the original packing box,,,

Model number will be on that or you can get it from System Preferances.

That will help me establish which vintage the unit is.
