How does this work?
Post a photo of the item you want to sell along with as much info as possible, such as: dimensions, how old, condition and price. When a member expresses interest (any question is expressing interest), you must give them a minimum of 12 hours to make mutually agreed upon arrangements. After 12 hours you can go to the next person in line that expressed interest on your post.
Tagging a member does not put that member in line; an individual must post interest personally.
Only comment on items you are serious about buying in a timely manner, please do not waste others time and have them hold it for days only to pass on the item.
Sending a personal message to the seller without commenting does not guarantee you a spot in line (sellers: selling to the person who sends a message without commenting will reflect badly on you and look as though you are not following the rules).
Do not offer a member a lower price for their item on their post. After you comment, send them a personal message with your offer.
If you are not interested in purchasing an item, do not comment. If you have a problem with an item a member is selling, contact an Admin.
What do I do after my item has sold?
Do not delete your sold items. Use the status button to mark your item as sold. Once marked sold, the item will self-delete in seven days. Items that self-delete are counted in VarageSale Stats program. Please keep up with your items and mark them appropriately (available, pending, sold)
How many items can I have up at a time?
There’s no limit, sell as much as you want. All we ask is you follow these guidelines:
ONE PHOTO PER ITEM. You may also use a collage photo or post alternate views in the comments.
ONE CATEGORY PER ITEM. Select the best category for your item and only post it once.
ONE ITEM PER PHOTO unless being sold as a "lot" you should only have one item in each photo.
If you have your item listed on another site, note in the description the item is "CROSS POSTED.”
Awesome, I see she is selling something I have too; can I just make a comment on her post that I have one to sell too?
No, making your own personal post is the right thing to do (this also applies to ISO post).
If I offer more than the member that is ahead of me in line, can the seller skip her and sell it to me? I really want that!
No, regardless, we use the “first/next in line” system. Trying to jump ahead of others will get you banned from the group. Sellers accepting a higher offer and skipping others in line will also be banned from the group.
Can I sell a car seat?
As long as it has not been in an accident and it is not expired (please list the expiration date on the post). Buyers, buy at your own risk. We strongly recommend you check out our tips for purchasing a used car seat.

This is a "buyers beware marketplace," it is your responsibility to check over all items before paying for them.
If you have a problem with a member, please try to work it out among yourselves amicably. If you are unable to reach an agreement, please contact an administrator and provide as many details as possible. We will try our best to resolve the issue.

The Westbank Online Garage Sale on VarageSale is a local marketplace that allows users to offer, sell and buy just about anything. As a local marketplace, we (the admins) do not own or sell the items listed on this site, so the actual contract for sale is directly between the sellers and buyers.
The administrators can not and will not be held liable for any transaction that occurs as a result of this marketplace. Nor can we be held liable for any incidents that may occur after the sale of the item or as a result of the sale of an item.
While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, we have no control over and do not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of items advertised or for sale/trade; the truth or accuracy of users' content or listings; the ability of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
The buying, selling, or offering of counterfeit items is prohibited as it violates the copyright infringement law. Should it be brought to our attention that a member is breaking the law, the member will be banned from the group immediately without warning.
