Works Mini parts on Facebook

Want to sell something? Here's the place to list it for free! (DIRECT SALES / SWAPS) No ebay links please.
Forum rules
For Sale Section Rules

PLEASE NOTE! Postings in this section are deleted automatically after they have not been looked at for 30 days.

1) This section is for advertising items that you have for sale. Not for the discussion of listed items. If you wish to debate the pro's & Con's of any item listed, please start a new topic in the appropriate section.

2) Please DO NOT post links to your ebay auctions. This section is NOT for the advertisement of your ebay auctions.

3) If you have a number of items to sell, post them in a single ad marked "Multiple Parts" or similar. DO NOT post many individual advertisements as this forces everyone else's listings down the page.

4) It is expected that any items advertised on the forum are described fairly & honestly. It is the duty of the seller to ensure that this is the case.

5) Items listed for sale should WHEREVER POSSIBLE* be offered with a purchase price, not asking for bids from members. If you wish to auction your item to the highest bidder I would suggest you use ebay & pay the associated fees.

6) This section is offered as a free service to enthusiasts. Any deals made are between the buyer & seller only. The MK1 forum takes no part in any transaction & the appearance of any item in this section is not a recommendation. I strongly suggest that both buyers & sellers are happy to proceed with a deal before any money or goods change hands.

7) It expected that people posting items for sale are "Active Members of this community". Any Adverts placed by members with a post count lower than 5 will be deleted.

8) The advertising of or soliciting for VIN tags, log books or any other vehicle identification documentation without it's associated vehicle is expressly forbidden. Any member breaking this rule will have his membership terminated with immediate effect.

9) If a moderator considers any postings in this section to violate either the spirit or word of these simple requests the MK1 Forum reserves the right to delete any posts without prior warning or explanation.

10) The posting of items for sale on the MK1 forum constitutes explicit acceptance of these simple rules.

11) Members posting items for sale MUST include a rough location in their profile.

It would be much appreciated if sellers could leave the sale price on adverts after the item has been sold. This acts as a good measure of current value for other sellers.

* In some cases it may not be possible for the seller to list items with a sale price. In this case, listings will be reviewed on a case by case basis by a moderator. The moderators decision will be final.

I'm also not a facebooker, and would be interested in the for sale items.

On that basis, I've got an idea........... What about a good compromise. Put for sale items on the forum 'for sale' page for a week or so, get a response (or not, depending.....) and THEN put them on facebook. Best of both worlds. Fellow forumers get first dibbs and the rest of the universe get second choice. Unless social meeja doesn't work like that inn'it.........

It’s a tough one really.

As you know I’ve sold a lot of stuff on here over the years and have not been into Facebook, although have been on it for years but never used it much.

Recently though I have sold quite a bit on the Mk1 Mini group page and haven’t had any problems, albeit some are somewhat slow and some end up not buying.

I’ve also sold and bought both Mini and non Mini items on Marketplace and again haven’t really, so far, had any issues.

Yes there are scammers on Facebook and certainly don’t pay Friends and Family PayPal unless you know or trust them. Only the other day on a page I am a member of someone was advertising a car that he was ‘breaking’ and it was pictures of a car that I am planning on buying and certainly want being broken by that guy !! It was quickly picked up by the relevant groups but there was still a chance someone got duped.

Difficult one for Mark to get right but remember you can use Facebook as little or as much as you want .
