Grab a Collection Only Bargain

Like if this guide is helpful

There are a lot of people who don't want the hassle of packaging up items and travelling to the post office or organising for a heavy item delivery and those people offer collection only meaning  there are lots of bargains out there close to you that are often missed.

Simply search for local ebay mapper, enter your postcode and distance you are willing to traval and collect an item, you will find bargains glaore!!!

I am quite disciplined and decide on a max bid and wait until 8-5 seconds before the end of the auction, if I win great if not it wasn't meant to be. 

If you can't get to watch the auction ending then don't forget to get a bid in early and cross your fingers in hope that it's enough, only bid what you are happy to pay ......

There is nothing worse than forgetting to bid and then finding out the item sold for 99p (I think we've all been there!), don't miss out.

I have personal experience of bidding on collection only items and winning at 99p.
It was cheaper for me to hire a luton van and collect a local item than it was to bid on one with delivery, it also helps the environment, keeping the carbon footprint down.

Good luck to all and grab yourself a local bargain as well as helping the environment.
