    was thinking that but how would i carry a 32" telly on the train ?

    Ambitious ask lol...and London is a huge place

    hire a car?

    .....after all the expense and messing it would have been better to buy a new one

    Why can't you drive? You have a Seat Leon don't you?

    How much is the tv,surely it's not worth the hassle ?

    Can't you get one of those £11 Virgin trains tickets to Manchester Piccadilly? Failing that I'm going to London, but not until December, so I guess that's of no use..

    The idea of mugging and crime in general works on risk vs. reward. The risks of trying to make off with someone's fairly heavy/bulky 32 inch TV in a public place full of cameras probably out weighs the reward in this instance. I'd just box it up and stick it in the luggage rack at the back of a carriage if it was me :).

    Im pretty certain i wont get mugged was bein psychastic.. more put off by the carrying a heavy item side of it, but i am considering taking the train if the seller can meet me at station .

    Is this tv new ?

    Sounds like a lot off the RRP,sure it's not dodgy lol

    guy on ebay has it hes got loads of feedback the tv is new but no packaging hence price also no warranty might just go and buy a new one if no ones able to help me out on this ..

    You're going to trust someone from this website to pick up and deliver an expensive item.

    Very Trusting. :-D
