PostSubject: Overland & Defender parts for sale.   Sat Jan 02, 2016 7:44 am

Hi Guys.

I sold my Defender 90 some months ago and have now bought my chosen vehicle of a Sprinter 4x4. So..... I kept some parts off my Defender on the chance I bought another Defender & along the way I bought a job lot of nearly new overland goodies. I plan to sell all the stuff at Malvern 4x4 spares day next (10th) Sunday however I'll also list it here to see if it helps anyone. Now I will confess any money made will go towards building the Sprinter into a family camping vehicle as well as a "soft" overland vehicle so I do want strong prices - around what the parts would achieve on ebay but i'll pass the selling fee's onto you guys as a saving. You can collect at Malvern or probably Donnington 4x4. For those of you that don't know me my Defender 90 was magazine featured in Oct 2014. So list of parts below:

Forgot to say I will post at cost on any items that fit in the post/couriers van.

. Defender overland style winch bumper, Looks like ARB bumper but is an original Goodwinch item in black. One small dent and slight surface rusting but still looks fantastic on Defender. Had Warn tabor fitted but will take goodwinch, Superwinch & most types of winches - Has led winch light and throttle winch lock fitted. 3 point mounting - Looking for £350

. 4 x green hi top ammo, wolf box - £40 each - as new

. Engel 45 fridge slide tray with base plate - does need fridge feet but I'll order these Monday - £60

. Mobile Storage Systems stak and stow drawer x 1 & flippers x 3. Couple of holes drilled in one flipper but depending on what layout you use they will not be seen - All in black. Around £425 the set.

. German made sand ladder brackets - these unlock, drop down and allow you to use your sand ladders as a table. Made by Engage 4x4 & powder coated black. one year old and cost over £120 + delivery. Looking for £80 with at least 4 keys.

. Far Corners hi lift jack or spot light bonnet mount. Uses original bonnet hinge mounts, in black. £60

. Lightforce 140's with clear lenses. 2 sets both in excellent barely used condition. £100 each set, one set is boxed.

. Lightforce 170's with clear lenses. Fantastic condition £125.

. Roof Tent cover (was fitted to TentCo). I removed this and had a new one made as I did not like the brown colour. It's never got wet and was removed the day I bought the roof tent from Flatdog 4x4. Open to offers around £50.

. I also have various other smaller items. Inverters, tube lights, petrol stove etc. I'll have a sort out tomorrow all being well.

Collection from Stratford - upon - Avon, Malvern spares day or postage possible.
Let me know if you are interested in anything & I can send photo's.
Dave.

Definitely some quality gear there. Two things -

1. Do appreciate you giving the opportunity before Malvern, but ... nowadays we're so used to seeing photos of the things we buy, there's very little chance you'll get buyers on this or any other forum come to that.

2. When at Malvern, yes folk can actually see/touch/smell what they're buying, but they will offer you stupid money for them. You're probably aware of that already, but then again if you've never sold at an autojumble before, you won't be. It really is insulting at times. You say, "I want £600" for that fridge/engine/whatever (which may well be a very fair price), but they come back with, "I'll give you £200 for it". F***k off!!! Of course you don't say it, but you feel like saying it. 'Boot sale mentality' I call it, it can really p**s you off. Stay calm an politely say, "I don't think so". They'll eventually go away mumbling and grumbling under their breath. Chancers one and all.

3. Be resolute, you'll get your asking price. Why? Because they are all quality goods, it really is as simple as that. If not, then pop them on ebay with a reserve or buy it now price, somebody out there will want them. Simple as ...

Again, sorry if preaching to the converted, but just in case, best said now!

GOOD LUCK DAVE!

Some fair points there Tom. I have not done photo's as the reason for doing a stand is to avoid me spending a long of time listing things on Ebay, answering peoples stupid questions and waiting in for them to turn up and collect. I don't mind listing some but I have a fair bit of stuff, a lot of which is tricky to post due to size/weight.

I want the stuff to sell but at the same time I know what it'll fetch on Ebay and the more money I can make the quicker I can proceed with the family Sprinter conversion.

At £25 - £35 and it being down the road I think it is worth doing a stand at Malvern. What does not sell will be on Ebay. I also have lots of little things, too good to throw away, not worth spending time Ebaying and I have no space to keep the stuff.

So Malvern 4x4 here I come.

When I used to go to Old Sodbury selling LR tat.... I'd get chancers offering stupid money.

one chap said "I'm from up north".... yesss... and??? so I said it's double price then...

My usualy answer to stupid offers, is "I've got a big garage so I can stuff it back in there" (I havn't! but it's the principle)

Yep, really annoying when they offer you £10 for something when the whole world knows it's worth £75+, it's extracting the urine.

Quick Update.

Loads of little things sold so was well worth me going both in terms of I have cleared some space and ££'s.

Bigger things also sold like:

Winch bumper sold - wolf boxes sold - 110 seat removal tray sold - Roof tent cover sold.

Storage system came very close but we could not compromise over £20. Engel tray would have sold if the buyer had more ££'s at the end.

Anyway took half a Sprinter van load, what did not sell would have fitted in the passenger seat area.

Now it is time to feed it through ebay.... computer-22

Everything now sold - or at least paid for with collection at Donnington 4x4.
