I joined a few FB selling sites specifically for prams for sale whilst I was pregnant (ended up buying new on a good deal) but the notifications still come up and I love prams so often take a nosy.
I just can’t get over how cheap people sell prams! Much, much cheaper than on eBay etc. Like £50 for a practically brand new travel system that would normally be £700+.
I’m so suspicious of this, and have been thinking what is the catch?! I’ve wondered if they could be stolen but often they come with all the bits and bobs so don’t think it could be that. The other thing is there are people who seem to change their pram, offer it for a swap, just because they fancy something different. Who does that?!! I thought long and hard about my pram because I knew it was a big purchase.
So AIBU to wonder what’s the catch? Is there something dodgy or do they just have a really bad depreciation like cars?!!
I put a lot of our baby stuff that I hadn’t given away up for free. Mostly because people had been very generous with us, and without meaning to sound wanky, I wanted to pay it forward. I could make money off it, but I’d rather it went to someone who would appreciate it and get some joy out of it.
Yeah, I think the almost brand new super cheap ones are possibly stolen or scams... I haven't seen that that often though. Scams are much more common than thefts ime, always pay with the business option of PayPal so you can reclaim your money if the buggy doesn't turn up.
I'm about to sell my buggy I bought second hand a few years ago and the new models still go for a lot but the older styles now seem to depreciate much more quickly than they used to.
