emailing sellers?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, do any of you guys buy your bikes over the internet on fleabay e.t.c.? I have spotted a few bikes for sale and have emailed 7 or 8 without any replies! Surely if bikes are advertised they are still for sale?

I've bought several bikes off eBay.......and never had any probs with comms.......but I'm very careful about the ads and will only entertain bikes where the seller seems keen and puts a good honest description into the ad...... :wink: Oh....and lots of photos...... :wink:

Hi, I think I may be being too careful! But who wants to travel half way across the country to discover a bike for sale is a wreck! I am only looking at bikes close to North Wales where I live and so my choice is limited anyway. Replies to my emails would be helpful hence my post asking you guys.

thanks for the reply.

Emailing sellers is a good idea. When I was looking for a car, I found lots of dodgy cars on EBay. What should get your alarm bells ringing is stuff like:

1) Incomplete vehicle details on advert.

2) You email the buyer saying "Do you have the full paperwork for this vehicle?" or "Has this vehicle been involved in any accidents?" etc, and if they do reply, they avoid the question.
