BIDDING TIP: I place my maximum proxy bid on items I desire. The ebay system only every bids on my behalf if there is a competing bid from someone else, and it never bids against myself , so its like having a virtual champion working the auction for you until competing bids expire or you have reached your maximum bid.
This always works for me as a buyer. Too many bidders are distraught because they were locked out of placing bids at the last second. The truth is you almost always never get a second chance given the time constraints. Regret for loosing can be devastating so be a winner and place bids early to show your interest.
We may be able to help deliver to Sydney canberra and Melbourne on our next trip, for a small fee. Please email me.

Although we try to ensure all the descriptions are true and correct, due to the number of sales we are listing, sometimes errors occur So when we reluctantly end a listing early it is because there is an error in the listing …but not to worry, it will soon be re-listed with the correct information unless sold prior. We know buyers trust us to do the right thing, and our excellent reputation means: reliability. All items are checked thoroughly to ensure :drawers and runners operate smoothly and open, locks with keys all work, hinges and other mechanisms are complete unless indicated.
We do supply lots of images for bidders to look at and invite you to inspect prior if you wish to view the item personally. Please contact us prior so that we can arrange to have the item available. Due to the limitations imposed on all sellers if you require larger clearer images then please email us directly, rather than through eBay so we can reply with better bigger images for each sale.
