W211 E320 Estate 2005
Today I decided that I would put an advert for Sharon's Jeep on Ebay. We have had it on Gumtree for a few weeks and got several hits but no interest.
I put the advert on Ebay and it went live at 14:13 today. We got a phone call at 14:39 from a chap saying that he wanted to come and view it and how far were we from Coventry. I said that he could come over today if he wanted and less than an hour later he was here.
To cut a long story short, he tried, tested and inspected everything including the oil, asked for a test run and then made his offer. We haggled a little bit and settled on a price and it was all over and done with by 17:15, we had a deposit and it is now sold.
So I figure that something around 3 hours after placing the advert we made the sale must be a bit of a record to be honest. What do you all think? Anyone had a faster sale than that?

Now to find that elusive E320 Mercedes estate..........

Keith

Ps, the chap that bought the Jeep turned up in a pretty new E350..... What a beautiful motor that is, I want one :)

Do you want to come and work for me? I've had a Jeep sitting on the forecourt for a week now with not even one test drive :lol:

Not car related, but I once sold a petrol wood chipper through ebay.

A call was placed on my mobile 28 seconds after the advert went live, I still have the screen shots on my pc.

Delivered it that night for a grand :)
