Renting somewere for my ebay items to go

Found 16th Nov 2007
the short of the story is i live in a towerblock and often miss parcels and dont even no it (as if they do leave cards on the buzzer - kids often think its funny to rip them) and loads of courier company's now wont for security leave cards on intercom systems

all i want to no does such a place exist where i can have my items sent there and collect etc when i can

ive seen plenty of those po box places but i no for certain loads fo ebayers wont post to a po box

im london based if that helps

ps. i would mind if it was an office etc as i could use that to store goods that im selling my self on ebay

Haven't you got a friend/family member nearby that will let you use their address?

There are places that your mail could be sent redirected to but they can workout quite expensive, so unless you receive a lot of mail or important items, I wouldn't recommend it.

You could use a warehouse if you have quite a bit of stock but this works out quite expensive as well, so make sure there's a decent profit margin.
If you're interested, the warehouse I used ito use in Wood Green (but they have many branches) offers discounts, let me know if you want any further advice, as you could negotiate decent prices.

Have you looked at Mail Boxes etc.? Admittedly not sure what format of address you'd get from them. I only mention it as my father actually investigated taking a franchise on a few years ago.

Realfreindlyman if u can pm me any details u have that would be great

How much space would you actually need, as the unit I reserved at the warehouse was a 200ft container, which isn't as big as it sounds, but it was 20ft x 10ft = 200ft and it was 8-9ft high but I was paying £275 every 28 days including £10,000 third party insurance but they wanted around double that originally until I negotiated.

Obviously there's small units starting from cupboard size as well, so you have to work out the space you need for your budget.
checkout selfstorage.co.uk/sto…asp then I can help you get a lower price once you PM the details of the closest warehouses.

They also have a reception, so you can send your mail there, accept returns for you etc.

Yep, It's filled to the brim, I used to pay a lot but I used to bring in £1000's every week, so it was worth it. ;-)

I can basically get hold of practically any product in the world with my contacts..... apart from a Wii of course, they're impossible to get.
