    So why did you retract bid?

    cash on collection ? paying cash. Or having to drive and pick it up?

    Cheers

    Having to drive and pick it up. Too far in a tratter. 534 mile all round trip, 8.5 hours travelling at 70 miles an hour (so 16 hours), and at 30 miles per gallon, I might as well pay 800 quid for one delivered, but with everything else I'm having done at mo, cash a bit too tight to splash out on a roofrack, just so I get my cameras at head height for reversing as I don't want to put holes in the body

    Well I know it's naughty, but I needed to buy some time to contact the courier I use and knock out someone getting it as a 'buy it now'. If you put a bid on, it knocks the BIN tab out. Contacted seller and was waiting for a response as I needed him to clarify the ambiguity. Was he offering 30 quid postage or insisting on cash on collection. It was the latter :(:(:(:(:( :D:D:D:D

    I wo
    I wouldn't say that. I'm a brill customer me. I never pull out of a deal if the seller is hundreds of miles away and happy to post, take paypal and accept a courier. It's just unfortunate that so far, the roof racks are nowhere near my neck of the woods. Got my handles today. St Austel. Nice chap by the sounds of it.

    Not at all. If he'd av got back to me and said it was 30 quid, or that he would accept paypal and a courier, I'd have retracted the bid and put the buy it now through. As it is, he's back to 'buy it now' and I'm sure it'll be gone by 11pm. It's only a 24 hour listing cos he knows it'll go.
