This crazy bidding thing again? Just set a price and be done with it.
If you want bids, stop being cheap and use a service that offers the buyer a degree of protection.

Unlike bitman and his Commodore A4000T, the rules won't change every few days.

I didn't set a price because I didn't know what people would be willing to pay for such a beast. This is to let me get a real idea of what it is worth.

As for fees, on the previous one I sold, Ebay hit me up for 10% of the final cost, and then Paypal hit me up with another 3 or 4%, so it really added up.

Go to Amibay. State a price (high if you want), buyer to pay paypal fees, wait. Sale = good, No Sale = Wait more or drop price.

Pretty much that. If you want to get an idea of what it's worth to people, post a thread asking for valuations on the usual Amiga forums, then put it up for sale for the price that seems popular with others and agreeable with you.

He didn't, he asked on Amiga.org first and I PM'd him a going figure for the minimum and average (at least what I would pay this moment). He is a big boy!

I'm a little cautious about amibay. I keep an eye out there from time to time. I find their guides section more interesting to me than the selling side.

I could be wrong, but it seems like 95% of the items offered for sale are between Europeans, and I'm in North America, so I'm usually shut out due to high shipping costs.

I plan to post weight and package dimensions later today in case anyone is interested in the shipping costs.

There's plenty of US people on Amibay, and a full system like that might gather interest anywhere in the world even with higher shipping costs.

An A4000T from Escom measures 20" tall x 7" wide x 20.25" deep....

I'd seriously consider upping the box size from 24 x 24 x 7 or the recipient could be handling a box of damaged goods. For a secure shipping carton something of that mass, you need more than 2 inches each side for sure.

It's the same box that it came in. It has PC Tower-sized styrofoam edge covers as well as an enormous amount of bubble wrap.

I sold one on ebay a couple of months ago, in the same packaging, and the recipient said it made it safely with no problems.

In fact, here's the pictures I took of the last one before I shipped it out:

and here's a picture of how it is packed (sent to me by the guy I got it from):

Today's the last day I'll be taking offers on this A4000T. If you've wanted one, this one is a good one: RTG and AGA, as well as ethernet and OS3.9 + BB 1,2,3&4 installed.

Check original post to get pictures.

Heck fella; If it's shipping in it's original packaging, then it really shouldn't be a problem.

My sincere apologies.
