If you are a seller

  • Please wrap the item in newspaper and leave it aside.

  • When the buyer makes contact and is ready to pick up, please ask the buyer to get his/her own bag to carry back the items

  • If you leave in an apartment complex, you may leave the item at the security – with instructions to call you when the buyer comes to the gate. You do not want anyone else taking the item
