PALLETS OF ELECTRICAL GOODS or PALLET OF USED PHONES.
I am writing this REVIEW to warn you about pallets of electrical goods & pallets of mobile phones. Over the years I have seen, and still see today, alot of people selling pallets of ARGOS returns or other HIGH ST retailers returns.
BEFORE you buy these I URGE you to read between the lines. A lot of sellers advertise these as "RAW" goods, which usually means that most of them DO NOT WORK. Although I have NEVER bought one, but I have seen people pay £300.00+ for a pallet and the goods they get are NOT EVEN worth £10.00!!!!
That's the "GOD'S HONEST TRUTH". I used to buy LORRY loads of these pallets but have never sold them on eBAY. I used to sell them to booter's and second hand shops.WITHOUT DIPPING INTO THEM...WHICH MOST SELLERS DO TODAY!!!!
NOW THINK.....If the seller who is selling these pallets had SUCH good stuff ON THE PALLET, then would he sell it to you CHEAPER? WHY doesn't HE MAKE THE MONEY he is promising that YOU WILL MAKE?
NO CHANCE!!!! Especially if you see a seller selling a boxed hi-fi, a boxed Morphy Richards Microwave, LISTED AS NEARLY BRAND NEW or FULLY WORKING or CHECKED, and then also has a pallet. You can bet your left buttock, the pallet is loaded with item's that the seller knows do not work and are not worth a bean!!!!
LET ME DO A LITTLE DICTIONARY FOR YOU!!!
RAW RETURNS...........MEANS...........A LOAD OF CRAP THAT YOU'RE BUYING TO THROW AWAY
UNCHECKED..............MEANS..........I'VE TOOK ALL THE GOOD, WORKING STUFF SO YOU'RE GETTING THE RUBBISH
GRADE C.....................MEANS...........RUBBISH, BROKEN, UNCOMPLETE, RUST BUCKETS, NO PACKAGING
GRADE B.....................MEANS...........SOME ITEMS PACKAGED BUT STILL CRAP, WORKING BUT USED FOR 16 DAYS
GRADE A....................MEANS...........WE'VE TOOK THE GOOD STUFF THAT WE WANT OR LIKE, BUT LEFT THE REMAINDER THAT WE DON'T WANT or CAN'T SELL FOR YOU, UNTOUCHED.
So see that's what it really means.
OHHHH don't take me wrong there are some good dealers out there, but finding them is like finding a needle in a haystack. Some stuff that is sold by the main dealers is GOOD stuff, but again you have to find the right dealers.
YOU GET SOME DEALERS THAT ARE SELLING PALLETS OF USED MOBILE PHONES. THEY DO NOT GIVE YOU THE FULL INFORMATION AND IN THE LISTING THEY USE THEIR WORDS VERY CAREFULLY.
HENCE "IT'S LEGAL"
These phones are usually stolen from the places where people post their old mobile's for recycling and they are NOT WORTH A PENNY. They usually come WITHOUT BATTERIES, CHARGERS, BACKS & EVEN SCREEN'S sometimes. But the dealers will list them as "NEED A BIT OF ATTENTION" or "MAKE £££££££"
Phones are also stolen from dump sites and other places. These phones are not worth a penny each, so beware of what you're buying.
1. IT'S YOUR MONEY SO ASK QUESTIONS
2. ASK THE SELLER IF THEY CAN GIVE YOU INFO ABOUT WHERE THEY BOUGHT THEM FROM...A DEALER ETC
3. ASK THE SELLER IF YOU CAN VIEW THE PALLET BEFORE YOU BUY....usually they will say no OR make an excuse.
4. ASK THE SELLER IF THEY CAN GIVE YOU THE EXACT LIST OF WHAT'S ON THE PALLET.
5. BEWARE OF SELLERS WHO SELL ELECTRICAL ITEMS INDIVIDUALLY AND A PALLET...They are the ones who have taken all the good stuff and put all the rubbish on the pallets.
and what's the sellers main answer to the question "Why are you selling a whole pallet?"
Their answer is: "HAVE NOT GOT THE TIME TO SELL EACH ITEM INDIVIDUALLY"
So BEWARE and be careful, it's YOUR MONEY and you have the RIGHT TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.
DON'T GET ME WRONG THERE ARE SOME BRILLIANT SELLERS ON eBAY, BUT FINDING THEM IS A JOB IN ITSELF!!!!
Please VOTE for this REVIEW so ALL FELLOW eBAYER'S READ THIS AND AVOID GETTING RIPPED OFF!!!!!
Until next time.....
