Not sure if should offer this as an alternative to collection only.
We have cleared out dp office and we have two computer chairs and a whiteboard.
The whiteboard cost us £70 earlier this year have put it at £5.99 for collection only but wondering if adding buyer to arrange own courier may help us get more for it.
Is this worth it and any issues i should know about if i do ?
Thanks

Or you could offer to arrange the courier. Some people who have never organised a courier before might be put off if they have to sort it themselves. these are good

thanks na just looked but the board is 120 by 90 cm so think it going to be to big for any of those just falls out of the large/heavy by 5cm!
Maybe worth looking into arranging myself though never thought of it putting people off.

I bought a trailerbike on ebay, it was listed as collection only but I wanted a certain model - so I emailed seller to ask if I could arrange for a courier to collect. They said fine, I won and as it was large I used Parcelforce - just booked online, all worked fine. It does obv need to you be in when they book it for, so it might just be easier for you to arrange it and pass the cost on.
