    Need a replacement front door?  I have a top quality front door I need to shift ASAP.  Clear finished solid oak inside with a factory primed paint finish outside (possibly aluminium).  It has two double glazed panels in the top half and two classic fielded panels at the bottom.  This was originally supplied for someone at a cost approaching €1000 but was rejected by the client.  It is brand new, never fitted, and is undamaged.  Just a little dusty.  It is a very heavy door, so much so I can’t lift it to even move it about, let alone fit it.

    It measures  214.5cm x 98cm    (38.5″ x 84.5″)  and comes without a frame.

    The first person to arrive with suitable muscle power can take it away for nothing.  It is in the way and I need it gone.   Located near Plougonver, 22810.

    Have you tried the ads on here and Leboncoin Sh-sh?

    I have had ads running here for years and not a single response.  In this case I need the door moved ASAP.  By next weekend I may decide to chop it up into small pieces so I can get it to the tip.

    Le Boncoin is complicated, in French, and it will cost to give away a valuable item.  Not throwing good money after bad.

    But thankyou for the suggestions.  :good:

    A chap just took it away.

    Thank goodness.        :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    Oh good glad you found a home for it Sh-sh. ( As an aside I never found Leboncoin complicated & it was always free for up to three photos, have they started charging then?)

    ~Someone on another site said there was a fee.  Since its in French and I’ve heard its a nest of scammers and time wasters I didn’t even look.  :scratch:

    I’m a regular visitor at our nearest tip.  Having been given a van load of hardware & building materials by a UK friend, and condensing two houses down to one small one I’ve had a lot of good stuff to get rid of.   A shame I couldn’t be turning it into cash.  We were regular boot fair sellers before lockdown pretty much killed that resource.  Although our nearest regular one has restarted it has been taken over by the professional rusty junk and damaged “antique” dealers.  You now need to get there about midnight to get a pitch.

    scammers get everywhere but I have had no problem with LBC and have never paid a fee.

    You can now pay LBC who only release the money to the seller when the goods as described have arrived.

    I have had one refund for goods that were never sent and I have had issues with companies advertising machinery they do not have in order to attempt to procure orders for much more expensive machines they also do not have. that said I found and bought on the same site a new machine in stock for 20 per cent off as it is last years model.

    My pc converts LBC to English, even for messages to buyers and sellers.

    I have also had many no problem transactions on here both selling and buying.

    I’ve been using LBC quite a bit recently, both buying & selling and almost exclusively using their online purchase system with mondial relay delivery.  I really can’t see past it and have had nothing but succesful transactions.

    I’ve managed to set myself up with a decent wee set of guitar effects pedals for not even a third of the price new.  There’s been trial and error but I’ve managed to sell the stuff I didn’t want – also on LBC.

    As a purchaser there is a fee for them dealing with the retention of payment until delivery, etc. For me it’s been about 1€ per transaction which is definitely worth it.

    I’m moving house  at the moment and I’ve sold loads on LBC.  Very little in the way of problems. One ot two time wasters but generally a good experience. Helps if your French is reasonable of course. We’re in France, so use what the French use, which seems to be LBC and Facebook (don’t use Facebook personally, but it’s a choice)

    On the same subject (kind of). If you have a lot of books, dvds, and cds to get rid of, try Momox.

    Really easy if you use the phone app

    Anyone got any other ideas? Keep them coming
