Does anyone need a sofa before I put o freecycle

sorry to break into your thread as i dont need a sofa but i go on freecycle, mostly to put offers on but very occasionally i want something and i get nothing even when i see the post as soon as it is on. I dont feel as though im being greedy but what is the normal way these things work for freecycle???

I advertise a lot and usually get many people respond to my add - some within minutes of it being posted. There are people who abuse this site and take items to sell on. Hence, why many genuine people cannot always get items that they may need.
Due to this and previous issues with non collection, I now only offer my items to those that have listed things on the site themselves.
I hope your spirits are not damped by this and you are able to keep the freecycle spirit alive.

Btw OP, very nice of you to offer it on here first. A little rep for you!

Thanks for your help. I have recently put on a post for a pushchair and someone has said they would like to take it off my hands. How would i know if they are genuine or not. Is there any quick way of seeing if they post much themselves

i dont get the freecyclers who say stuff like this, if im putting stuff on its cos i want rid and no one i know wants it and i cant be naffed to sell etc, so i dont care who takes it or what for to be honest - as long as they hurry and collect, saves me a trip to the dump!

True, the only reason i ask is because like i say, there was an object i really wanted but probably not useful for many people and the person posting told me he would wait a day or two before he made a choice and i cant understand why i wasnt chosen. I am just annoyed i suppose but now you put it like that i will just say yes take it!

ive only ever managed to get something on freecycle once, i was always veaten to it, i only really use it to get rid of my unwanted stuff, i was miffed once when i posted a load of bootsale/ebay type stuff in a lot, one member emailed me to say he would take the disney vids and xbox games but didnt want the rest - he never got it, it went to someone who was happy to take it all lol

ive seen posters say they'll pick randomly etc, obv its up to the giver, i usually just first come, or first who can collect soonest

freecycle does have alot of people who sell stuff on, recently gave away my duet lite double pushchair, few days later I thought I would check ebay and surprise surprise it was on there, I know it was the right pushchair because it was the same picture I had taken and same username as yahoo account!!

It is my nans sofa, http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y21/xx_kellie_bitch_xx/001-1.jpg will put on freecycle tomorrow BTW its the light on the right side of the sofa ( looks like it faded ) but its not

Well i have two people now and am not sure who to pick. The pushchair i dont think will sell so im not concerned about it being on ebay too much but you never know. Its great to hear the comments above though so i know for other items.

I would pick the first one who got in contact first , or the person who can come get it first

Yes, i just did a search of them and one only comes up wanted. The strange thing is the first man is the same one who got in contact with something i posted a while back but said he could not collect and could i drop it off!!!!!!
