    Private sales only unless you are a sponsor. If you are a trader you need to be a sponsor.
    For the purposes of this forum, a "trader" will be anyone deemed to be buying and selling to make a profit, not someone just selling a few spares from their garage. Traders are also those offering services.

    If you've got loads of spares to sell, please put it all on 1 thread rather than fill the boards up with dozens of separate threads. We will merge or delete multiple threads as deemed necessary.

    All threads need
    • a price - no clever “£100k ono” please.
    • a location
    • a photo
    • some form of contact details
    • no ebay links
    • no vehicle sales without a v5 or equivilent
    Any threads that do not contain the above are likely to be deleted.

    Trader with no banner £20 for 12 months

    Buying and selling on TLB is done so at your own risk. Having said that, if anything goes wrong the TLB team will do everything we can to help resolve the issue. Ultimately it is you as the buyer or seller who is responsible for the transaction.

    We make the following suggestions:-
    • If you pay will PayPal do not do so as a Gift, if you pay as a Gift you will not be able to retract the money if anything goes wrong.
    • Collect in person if possible but only meet where you feel comfortable – perhaps take a friend.
    • We ask that all sellers provide contact details in adverts – note these down and perhaps give them a call.
    • Each member will have their number of posts and amount of karma listed to the left of their posts, the higher these numbers are the more likely they are a trusted member of TLB (but use your discretion).If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.We advise that if an items is being posted, use a service that tracks the parcel and requires signature on receipt.If the item for sale is not to your tastes, please show the seller some respect and not slate the goods without valid reason
    These are only guidelines and suggestions; we remind you again, it is your responsibility not that of TLB.

  2. While we encourage all to be involved in TLB, in an open, friendly and informative way, please keep comments in classified ads to a minimum and on topic.

    Member ads are to buy or sell items/vehicles, and too many comments can dilute or distract from the intent of the thread, so please respect the OP's advert

    This is only a guideline/polite request, and it is within the rights of any member/advertiser to PM the mods/admin, or at the mods/admin discretion to remove unwanted comments or tidy the thread. If your comments are deleted please do not take offence
