Take a moment to relax, maybe reread things before reacting.
I donít think or have interpreted any post as ďlashing out ď except from the OPís second post. It is frustrating that posters, especially ones that are selling donít give enough information like price, pictures and location. It is selling 101. Enough said I will sit back and shut up now.

If I had accepted it I would have started throwing up pictures etc.

I think in future its probably better NOT to post cherry vans & good used take off parts at bargain prices with a recognized service history on this forum. Simply put I will use the normal channels Craig's List etc to sell Sprinter vans when they come into my shop as consignment units and parts sales.
As they say no good turn goes unpunished !
So over & out on offering pointers to buy good honest stuff thoroughly checked out by us & running with documented service histories.
As of today I inform you all as an example .
I do have a 2005 Sprinter van coming up for sale shortly that has been gone through in our shop.
I will not post it on this forum as a result of this hullabaloo .
Dennis

You are overreacting in my opinion.

Well that's your opinion.
Frankly I don't need the hassle.
We repair ailing vehicles and sometimes sell consignments as well as fixer uppers that are part of the game.
I often have people coming by looking for good Sprinters/ Landrovers and other stuff plus parts as take off from wrecks we buy.
If the parts are good, we use them in the shop or we sell them at bargain prices. The proceeds we donate to Mercy Ships.

I sold a low roof 2005 Sprinter recently for $8000 and 50% of the profit revenue went to Mercy Ships.
To resolve this issue as I stated I won't be posting anything else in the future in this sales section!
In short I am done with it, too much hassle

... Because someone wanted a price stated on an item listed for sale? Uhhh.. OK. Sorry, I don't get the outrage.

Easy there pardners. No reason to get too miffed about what goes on in a single thread. Enjoy the forum for what it is.

Because internet access is cheap, typing is easy, and it is a forum???

There's lots of things posted here on the forum which I don't agree with or even like. As long as it isn't dangerous or derogatory (DZ excluded) I just move on to the things that I do like or interest me around the forum. That's what I do, AND I have the ability to edit/delete stuff.

Carry on.

Yes Vic
No problem !
My position was if I hear of a cherry unit I gave the forum membership first dibs to contact the owner!
Obviously this is now not acceptable so I withdraw my participation within these "offerences" that come along once in a while !

The same goes with good used & salvage take off parts.
I see no point in offering this stuff in the sales section if its going to potentially create such a hullabaloo.
As you know I mostly refrain from using this forum website to flog parts !
Its crass from my perspective, but most often the proceeds went to charity anyway so it was kind of OK for me where I sit.

Cheers Dennis

Doesn't a hullabaloo need a crowd to be called that? I didn't see anything beyond a few comments by a few members.

There are no set rules for posting ads which I'm aware of. When the details aren't included those who care can dig deeper. How can it be a problem for those who aren't interested?

Of course you can do what you wish, but I don't see anything wrong with you using the For Sale section to make forum members aware of what's available in your area.

As a T1N owner I'm happy to see used parts offerings of any kind. It ain't like the T1N's are getting any younger.
