I admit it, I am a novice and donât even have an e-bay account. I need to sell my 1 year old tax-free import (4 wheels that represent a deposit on my house). Dealers are not interested â âtoo much stock on handâ, so I accept that I will have to go for a private sale. In the past I have only ever pxâd or passed on old sheds to members of the family. What is the best way of going about a private sale? How do I avoid being ripped of with the payment? â¦.. ARRsers advice welcomed, preferably of the constructive type but I acknowledge that ritual abuse is inevitable.
