Use the site as intended for Buying, Selling and Trading. Only 1 account per person.
You must be a resident of North Myrtle Beach, SC or surrounding areas (Typically a 10 Mile radius) and at least 16 years of age to make transactions on this site. All memberships are subject to Admin. approval, please allow 24 hrs for pending requests.
HONOR SYSTEM. Our group, which is local, depends on the creation and maintenance of local trust by and for all its members. This means that members of this group are honor bound to keep their word and behave ethically and morally in all transactions and communications. This also means:
a) Once you commit to sell to someone, you must honor that commitment. Don't sell it out from under the original buyer, simply because you got a better offer, after agreeing upon the sales price with the original buyer. This is NOT a "first come, first serve" group. Sell in order of interest. A QUICK TIP: If you see an item you are interested in put a comment in the comment section under the post. For example say: "I am interested in the item. I am sending you a private message (PM). Then send that person a PM. When you do this the picture of the item will show up in the PM and they will know what item you are interested in. You can also see if and when the seller read your message. Sometimes a seller might see messages in their private messages before they see the messages under a post. So simply do both!
b) Allow at least 12 hours (24 hours if at all possible) for a response and to set a date/time/location to meet. After 12 hours of no response, you're free to move on to the next person.
c) "Commit to buy" means that you and the Seller have agreed on a final price BEFORE YOU MEET. Once you commitment to buy you must honor that commitment. Please DO NOT price haggle at your meeting location. EXCEPTION to this rule: if the condition is not as described. Honestly, pictures do not always show every imperfection. SELLERS: You are NOT obligated to lower the price if you are being haggled to lower the price. We DO NEED TO KNOW IMMEDIATELY who does this. We will keep a record. If a person continuously haggles to lower the price with several members, you may be revoked from the group. This falls under the rule of wasting someone's time.
d) What does this mean for you? If you want an item badly, pay the full price and do no negotiating. Be on time for your meeting and don't be a "No Show"!
6.. FULL DISCLOSURE. Sellers must be sure that:
a) Descriptions are placed underneath each and every photo.
b) All descriptions are complete. This means they MUST include the make, model, year, etc., size, age and especially price of your item, among other things. Do not make people ask for basic information.
b 1.) You do not have to explain where you got it from or how much you paid. People can do their own research and see value or worth of an item BEFORE committing to buy. Reselling IS a allowed. EXAMPLE: If you bought an item off of VarageSale Hidden Treasures, for a great deal of $10 and You want to relist it for $20, then its ok. If someone is willing to pay a higher price, there is nothing wrong with that. So no complaints about people doing such things.
c) All items are described honestly. Do not lie or exaggerate.
d) Any and all defects, even very minor ones, are mentioned in the description (or at least disclosed during exchanges with potential buyers). If there are spots, stains, scratches, dents etc. mention them, then describe them. No one likes to be surprised.
e) With all of this being said please keep in mind:
It is the "sellers" responsibility to disclose any defects to the buyer.
It is the "buyers" responsibility to check over any items before they hand over any money for any defects before they take it home.
PROFESSIONALISM. This is a site for doing business, and all members are required to speak and behave professionally with one another. Please keep in mind that we do not allow any DRAMA on the wall. Please work out any transaction problems between the two parties in a PRIVATE message. If nothing can be worked out contact one of the admins for help in a PRIVATE message. Please do not argue with an admin (we are here to help not to argue).
MEETINGS. When you meet someone, keep safety in mind. Only meet in well lit, public places. If you must go to a home, bring someone with you. Better safe than sorry! Also once your have set up a meeting please be courteous and be on time. Please remember gas prices are way too high to make people meet you multiple times because of a "no show". Please report any "no show's" to the admins as they do keep a record of them. Come prepared with CASH do not expect anyone to take a CHECK, or have change.
CELL PHONE PURCHASES.
We STRONGLY recommend that all cell phone exchange/purchases be made at the office of the local cell phone (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, etc) provider to verify that the phone is clear of past due bills, not blocked by provider, and not stolen. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU ARE NOT BUYING A STOLEN PHONE OR A WORKING PHONE. ONLY THE CELL PHONE PROVIDER CAN
Ways to check a cell phone purchase before you hand over that money
a) Ask for the "ESN/MEID/IMEI number".
What is a ESN/MEID/IMEI number? An ESN is the electronic serial number assigned to your iPhone and is used with CDMA phones instead of SIM cards.
b) Check online the ESN / IMEI / MEID.
One place we have found that is not 100% accurate but it's a start is to go here: http://swappa.com/esn (From what we can tell is you can check 20 per hour)
c) What is a Bad ESN, MEID, or IMEI Number and what does this mean?
A cell phone can have a bad ESN/MEID/IMEI number for one of 3 reasons:
There is money owed on the wireless carrier account to which the ESN/MEID/IMEI is connected.
d) So what does this mean for me?
If you insist on purchasing a cell phone and you do not meet at a local cell phone company as we have suggested so it can be checked out. At least do as much homework as you can before you hand over your hard earned cash!
e) If you list a cell phone on T&T you need to put in the description the "ESN / IMEI / MEID number". If this number is not in the description your listing will be removed.
STOLEN PROPERTY - IF YOU NOTICE A STOLEN ITEM POSTED ON THIS SITE PLEASE NOTIFY AN ADMINISTRATOR IMMEDIATELY. PLEASE THEN CALL THE POLICE AND NOTIFY THEM.
Ads, URL's, Website links are NOT allowed to be posted to other buy and sell groups and or links to any place that sells. You can post a link in the Small Business Category only.
Buyer Beware, means that everyone on the site buys and sells at their own risk. In other words:
Please check a seller or buyer's profile before you agree to meet someone or make a deal. Make sure you are comfortable that they are who they say they are. Speaking to someone on the phone is strongly recommended, as is exchanging phone numbers before a meet.
