eBay as Dumpster

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7951150644&rd=1

Why rent a dumpster when you can just mail the stuff out....

$31 is a lot for a $2 core-that compressor is used on a lot of GM vehicles(Delco R-4), I bet my local U-pull has some for less than $31 that are good.

I've sold some stuff I considered junk on eBay, mostly old (still-working, but ancient) computers and accessories. There's usually a buyer for that stuff, surprisingly.

Buyer Beware

Billrei,

AND ( wait for it! ) get paid money for your trash, instead of having to rent
the dumpster.


'should be the new name for both e-bay + pay pal.

An interesting concept:Recycling to the mentally challenged under the guise
of a fictional auction with no hope of recourse for the buyer (or Seller).

'round here it's known as "shooting fish in a barrel" and the penalty for that
is about the same as using a grenade in a pond.

Very true. I've seen so much junk on eBay that doesn't work that I ask myself, "who do the sellers expect to PAY for this stuff?" I guess there's an ass for every chair huh?
