Sounds about right. Chances are the guys who pay big coin collections are sending their stuff to the CS for modifications. So it'd be more of a collectors show piece than a shop tool. What ballpark we talkin?

There are rules for newbies selling stuff on TCC. Your best bet is actually eBay. The last few sold between 2-3k... The last one close to 3. Extremely limited market, eBay gets way more eyes...

I agree with Ebay although you must know what you're doing there to avoid being scammed. I've sold a pretty decent amount of stuff on Ebay the last few years and it's a great place if you know what you're doing.

Currently Ebay seems to be swinging back to protecting Sellers more. In recent years, they went overboard with Buyer's protection and of course, scammers loved it. They'd claim Item Not Received, Significantly Not As Described, etc.....all with the hope that either Ebay or the Seller just rolls over and gives them a 100% refund or a partial refund.

1. First and foremost: if you sell on Ebay, you do accept Returns. Repeat that..........you do accept Returns. If you select that you don't, you're telling Ebay and Buyers if the item isn't what the Buyer expected, you don't want it back. Ebay will refund the Buyer their money (usually from your Paypal account) and not make them return it. ALWAYS select, Returns accepted. Scammers will move onto the next victim.

2. On items over $250.00 you must use Signature confirmation. Do not let the Buyer talk you out of using Signature Confirmation or you'll lose your Seller protection with Paypal.

3. Only ship the item(s) to the Buyer's Paypal address. Sending it to any other address will void your Seller's protection. If they give you a story about moving, not being there to receive it, etc......don't believe them. Tell them you must ship it to the Paypal address listed. They can always add one to it.

3. With an item so valuable, I would insure it heavily. If the Buyer claims that it was damaged in transit, tell them to Return it and once received and verified that it's the same item, you'll refund them.

4. Set your Seller's filters properly. Under Account tab, go to Site Preferences and down to Buyer requirements. I block these:

a. Don't have a PayPal account - You don't want to run the risk of getting a bogus Cashiers check or Money order.
b. Have received 2 Unpaid Item strike(s) within 12 Month(s) - These are sport bidders & run an item up then don't pay. 2 weeks wasted.
c. Have a primary shipping address in a location I don't ship to. - Sell to Continental U.S. Bidders only. No International including APOs.
d. Have 4 Policy Violation report(s) within 6 Month(s) - Self explanatory.

e. Have a feedback score of -1 or lower - Self explanatory.

Good luck!

Some of it was learned through Ebay's forums and most through getting scammed a few times.

You're welcome.

A couple more pointers on Ebay Selling guys:

5. Always use Ebay messaging to communicate as that is the only correspondence that is considered official to Ebay. In the event of a dispute, they will review those messages. Don't get nasty or make threats in them either.

6. On your auction style sales: Run each and every bidder through Toolhaus.org           Enter their ID into the search field and click left by. It will show you all the negatives/neutrals that Buyer left over the years. Here's an example of a PITA (pain in the ass) Buyer who will bitch if their ice cream is cold.

http://toolhaus.org/cgi-bin/negs?User=hautetut&Dirn;=Left+by

7. Also look at their feedback left for others within Ebay. Click on their feedback number and then 'Feedback left for others'. Sometimes a Buyer will always leave backhanded positives (called 'False positives') with comments like 'Great Seller although shipping was high'  or  'Not great quality but the price was okay'. Those ones are the ones who'll leave you a 1 or 2 on your Seller rating stars and if you fall below a certain level, you'll lose selling priviledges. If you don't have a lot of sales, just a couple aholes can get you banned from Selling.

8. If you do find anyone that you'd rather not bid on your item, add them to your BBL (Blocked Bidder List) http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/manage_bidders_ov.html#block . Simply copy their ID, open the link to 'Block bidders', paste their ID in there and save it. If you add more than 1, put a comma then a space in between. I have hundreds on my BBL. Some were obvious, some just smelled fishy. Why take a chance on getting scammed..........

9. If they've already bid on your item, add them to your BBL FIRST then click on the Cancel bids link page. If they send you a message about why you cancelled their bids, just ignore it. Nothing (I repeat NOTHING) you write them will help them get over you telling them you don't want their business.

Good luck!

Thank You!   It is up on Ebay.     I followed your feedback on the bidders.  Not sure what to do now.   12 hours posted at  3500 or best offer 3 offers already. I may be too low on the starting point.

Not a bad problem to have!      Thank you again.    This is a great site and there are great people

You can always counter offer them as well but of course only after you've checked their feedback left for others.

How many days did you make the auction for? I usually do 10 days and start it on Thursday about 5 Pacific time. That makes it end the next Sunday evening with East Coast still up and able to bid.

I made it 10 days.  My Buy it nows I start anytime.  My auctions I start at  6 pm for the same reason you stated.    I sold a lot of things on Ebay, but I learned more from you in the 8 years I been on there. I am also glad Ebay is getting seller sensitive but they have a long way to go in the area.

Again thank you for all your input is was very helpful.

Serious buyers know the actual value... so $3500 was a good BINOBO strategy. Any higher and you seem like you don't know... I'd take the first 3k offer and be excited. The fact that is says 2nd Swing on it detracts from the value since there is no mystery or mystique about origin etc.

I think it's a generic setting that Ebay uses for the Seller's protection. If they have more than 1 item of that kind, they don't want the subsequent Buyers knowing what the others paid.

I've had multiple items that I've sold under Best Offers; sometimes I get more out of the second Best offers than the first.

    • 2/27 - Mirror work at the gym. Focused on float load feel at transition.
    • And the ankle is on the circumference of that circle, or really even a little outside of it, not within it. So why would you be making a radius around the ankle?   Again, you shouldn't rotate around the ankle, you should rotate away from it. So even if you rotated parallel to the ground, then the basic geometry says the distance between the ankle and hip must still increase. To keep that distance the same would just about require rotating on an incline that is tilted in the wrong direction. It's just hard to imagine what the swing you are describing looks like. Sway so bad you really do end up centered over the trail ankle, followed by a massive reverse pivot?       
    • I'd estimate it's in the 40-50 course range, mostly in the Carolinas.  Some of my favorites have been: Caledonia- Pawleys Island, SC Thornblade- Greenville, SC Stono Ferry- Charleston, SC Rocky River- Concord, NC The Walker Course- Clemson, SC  
    • Just finished a big (multiple week) job on my truck and I wanted to point something out to anybody willing to read this. I sometimes get crap from people (mostly co-workers and stuff) about "how can you afford this/that, you must make the big bucks." No. I would have to say the #1 reason my wife and I have as much money in the bank as we do is these top 3 reasons: 1. We don't have kids (lol, that was an easy/obvious one) 2. We don't blow money on big $100+ drinking nights out or fancy restaurants even though we can afford to do so. We enjoy the little things and we are happy to have a nest egg to keep our stress levels lower 3. I do a lot of DIY, including with our vehicles. And it's the vehicles that pays off BIG TIME. Case in point: My truck is old but I still love it. But it had creaking and wobbly sounds that were tough to diagnose. Not a single mechanic I brought it to could properly diagnose it (by a LONG shot). So obviously they all recommended to start replacing the typical suspects and see which one ends up fixing it: wheel bearings, front rotors and pads, ball joints, sway bar bushings, tie rod and bushing, sway bar end links, control arm bushings (I ended up not installing), and shocks. Those were all suspect.  All of this work was quoted at >$4,000. The lower ball joints alone was $1,000 just for labor, by the way. The truck is only worth probably $3-4k.  I bought all of the parts for $180 + $50 for 2 nice new deep socket sets + $75 for some harbor freight tools including and angle grinder, some better jack stands, an air chisel, grease gun, etc. + $40 for a NICE Milwaukee metal drill bit set So total was $305 for parts and NEW tools. Plus I rented a couple things that I turned out not needing. BTW I did the wheel bearings a few weekends before this but that wasn't long and only $100. That wasn't in the shop's quote since I had already done them. The work took about 22 hours total over 2 weekends. Car was safely drive-able after each weekend no problem. 1. I'm a ROOKIE mechanic at best lol. 2. This is on a freaking DODGE. Dodge's are notorious for being a royal pain in the caboose. 3. 2/3 of the total time was spent on one side of the car learning how to do this stuff as I went (and youtube).  4. Everything was rusted to hell. That takes time. 5. I don't even own a freaking impact gun guys. That's like the fundamental mechanic's tool to have, and I don't because I'm a cheap guy haha. So bottom line, $300 for parts and some new tools I can use anytime in the future, and I now have $4,000 in our bank account that is free to use. I also know that it was done CORRECTLY. And isn't it funny that the rookie mechanic (who hit his own thumb with a sludge hammer in the process... yea that hurts (still...)) completed this job with rookie tools, rookie knowledge, on freaking jack stands, in less time than the quote 25 hours to complete the job that the shop quoted? I understand they quote based on worse case (having to cut parts out because of rust and such) but EVERYTHING on this truck was rusted beyond belief and had to be cut out basically. I still handled it in < 22 hours.  Ask yourself: would you be willing to work hard for 22 hours at a rate of ~$168 per hour? Granted there's some risks involved. Maybe some people they aren't worth it. But I even factored in if I had to rent a car for a few weeks because I royally effed up  I'd still come out way ahead.
