But I am posting this to also help others here & maybe the Mods & forum can also help and make a "Suggestion" to help others sell their items better, and some suggestive guidelines & help???,,...
NOW.... I offered him $25.00 below what I can buy new from my dealer. He declined.....
Look, everyone wants to get the most money out of their parts & the buyers want the best deal...We're all human...we get that!...
But lets all be realistic...They are USED! period! I always give a fair deal & never low ball. General rule that I
personally go by: A used part (In GREAT condition) should be approx 1/2 of a new selling price. I will get something back out of what I didn't have ($$$), & the buyer gets a good deal too. (Win, Win!).
Perfect example: I just sold my son's tail lights from his 2006 F150 that were MINT condition (less than 1000 mi on them) for $40.00 & FREE shipping!
Again, not here to complain, but hopefully to help some people understand a little bit better. Anyone can ask ANY
price they want...but if the asking price is not realistic...well, they can keep tripping over the part as time makes them worth less money, as no one will buy them.
Again, just trying to help some people understand & make a point and not being negative at all.
If some one wants to pay close to retail for a used part....well, that's they're wallet... but it CERTAINLY aint gonna be outta mine! I'm not afraid to spend my money, but I will be realistic.
