    Selling laptop, help please

    I'm selling a quite expensive laptop on eBay.

    To be sure the deal goes smoothly, I'll take paypal payment. And use shipping with insurance.

    Are there anything else that I can do to make sure the deal goes smoothly?

    Can anyone also suggest a carrier?

    Thanks

    Don't send it to Nigeria.

    If i sell something really expensive i always take photographs when packaging the item as evidence that it was packaged well and i also pay for the postage through paypal as they then have a record of delivery and i when i print off the postage label i photograph it stuck onto the package ,This all may seem a bit much but this is the lengths you need to go to to be protected on Ebay these days,

    The buyer is from UK.

    depending on how far you live it might be worth you delivering by hand, if your postage costs cover the petrol or train ride. or try dhl website for rates for courier.

    some really good advice there

    i probably wouldnt deal with paypal to be honest as if seller has even a tiny gripe they will side with buyer

    have you tried your local gumtree or here as theres no fees you could afford to lower price

    Was also thinking of selling my old laptop on eBay but am scared of being ripped off after the sale.
