This service is offered to achieve two aims. One is to ease the burden of selling equipment while providing a financial return to members and the other is to provide an alternative to the rubbish bin for otherwise useful equipment.
As a service to members
and their families
The service is intended to sell those items of significant value such as amateur radio equipment and test equipment. Other items may include vintage radios, rare books, small antennas and valuable tools. A small commission of 10% is charged to cover costs. Part of the service is to test and in some cases repair equipment so that potential buyers can have confidence in the true condition of the equipment.
What we do not sell is
furniture, computer equipment and large bulky
items that require special transport. The sale of
these items is more than adequately catered for by
other means. Antenna towers cannot be handled by
If the equipment to be
sold includes low value small items such as
electronic components, radio valves, magazines,
small tools and other small radio and electronic
Valuable items are sold through
A Cheque for the proceeds of the sale of valuable iItems (less the 10% handling fee) will be mailed to you as the items are sold. It may take several bi-monthly sales to clear all your items so complete sale of all items can take 6 months or more.
Is this an alternative to online auctions? No this service is intended to take the burden from the seller of advertising and shipping equipment. As such the return will be less than selling on Ebay but with out the stress of completing many sales transactions.
