So we are downsizing and before the house goes up for sale we are having a huge clear out.
Lots of stuff of no use to us so we decided to put them on freegle, which if you didn’t know is a site where you can post things you’re willing to give away. People interested can then email you and hopefully someone will come and get item at time convenient to both parties. (Similar to another site called Freecycle)
First item, lady wants us to deliver to her. Bit of a cheek considering it’s free but prepared to do so locally. She’s a good 25 min drive so we say no but she’s welcome to collect if still interested. Apparently she no longer wants item.
Second and third items: chap emails wants them - will pick up between 7 and 8pm last night. We move items to front door ready for collection. He doesn’t turn up.
No word til this morning, he emails again, apologising and says can he collect tonight by 8pm. Hopefully he will
We then remembered that we had used this site a few years ago to get rid of unwanted items and had similar experiences of people saying they would come and not turning up. And we said, at the time, next time it all goes straight to the dump!
Clearly we forgot.
Has anyone else had experience of using these sites. Any similar stories?
