Classified Disclaimer / General FS Guidelines - Reposted
The For Sale / Wanted sections here on are here as a convenience for our members to buy/sell/trade miscellaneous items without the hassle and fee’s of eBay style websites.

Please read the following important information prior to entering into any transaction on the forum.

- and it's staff will, in no way, be held responsible for any transaction which takes place or initiated by an advertisement on and that previous info/ratings/feedback should be taken only as a guide.

This extends to the quality of items provided, unsatisfied deals, loss of money and/or goods or further outlay for court costs etc.

- and it's staff are not here to arbitrate. We will offer advice where we can, but it is down to the individual to seek a resolution.

Please do not PM Admin/Moderator staff asking for them to contact the user concerned. Much against popular belief, if they ignore your PM's they can do the same to ours. We will not take on individual cases for you.

Last log in times can be found in the users profile, as can other details, like email addresses.

-, will, supply more in-depth details ie: IP address, email address (if not shown in profile) Content of PM's if requested by the relevant authorities. Please remember, we are restricted by certain aspects of the Data Protection Act.

- will take action against the user concerned after the matter has been resolved or a reasonable time has passed. Either an outright ban will be given, or a "tag" and restricted forum access.

The classifieds and deals within are based on trust. It is up to you to make it work.

The overruling majority of deals on are conducted honestly and smoothly, but sometimes, things do go wrong.


The above content is subject to change, and no prior notice will be given

Here's a list of additional guidelines to follow for this section. Not all of these are forum rules, but more of a general guide for buying and selling etiquette.

1) If somebody is asking a price that you think is outrageous, send them a PM, DO NOT post in their thread saying they are dumb or that they are ripping people off. Sometimes people don't know what stuff is worth and just post the first price that comes to mind. A freindly PM stating "Hey just wanted to let you know that these are only $xxx brand new, you may want to consider lowring your price to $yyy."

If you truly think that a member is being intentionally ripped of or scammed, please contact the member or myself and together we can decide on the appropriate action.

2) If somebody is selling their chrometechs (just an example) and a person is interested in them, DO NOT jump in their thread and say you will sell them for less. Send the buyer a PM and say that you have an identical item for $xxx, but DO NOT "hijack" other members threads. This applies to WTD ads, as well.

3) If somebody is selling a TPS-Tec (again, just an example) and you think it is crap, DO NOT post in their thread about it. This is not a debate forum.

4) Pictures of the actual item are recommended (but not required) to help ensure legitimate transactions are taking place. (the old "take a picture with today's date,milk carton, etc. to prove you have said item you are posting).

1) Don't list an item for sale unless it is ready to be shipped. If it is not ready to be shipped (ie, you are installing new rims and your factory rims won't be off for another week) MAKE SURE TO MENTION THIS.
2) Buyers must realize that shipping takes time. UPS ground deliveries average between 3-5 BUSINESS DAYS for US shipments. Please realize that not everyone goes to the post office or shipping center everyday.

1) In general, payment is expected within 24-48 hours of sale (for online forms of payment). For mail (checks, money orders) are expected within 4-7 business days. If you forgot to get a money order and it's been 6 days already, guess what... They offer overnight shipping. :p

2) Don't say "I'll take it" unless you can afford to buy the item RIGHT NOW. If you can't afford an item right away, ask if it's okay to have a 24 hours to come up with the cash. If you have NO INTENTION of buying an item, DO NOT POST THIS!

3) Worst case scenario: You can't get the money together and you've already agreed to buy an item. CONTACT THE SELLER and TELL THEM ASAP! Don't make them miss a chance to sell the item to somebody else.

95% of the problems associated with buying and selling are caused by poor communication. Stay in touch with your buyers and let them know when they can expect items. Stay in touch with sellers so that they know when to expect payment.
