Website to sell second-hand stuff? [Ricardo/eBay]

I am moving in the coming future. And I am thinking of selling my piano, some furniture, and other household stuff. Could anyone tell me good and safe websites for selling stuff like these? And do I have to pay any additional charges?
Thank you so much!!!!!!

www.ricardo.ch
pay commission. Ricardo is far more popular here than eBay. Because they verify addresses by sending a letter initially to activate the account, it's a little "better".

You could try craigslist - it's free to place ads - www.craigslist.org (SWITZERLAND, ZURICH).

It's THE place to sell, buy, rent or even find a job .... in California in any case - and it is slowly picking up here in CH.

Good luck!

Hi! Depending on whereabouts you are, WRG in geneva have a good website and a good classified section. They also advertise things on their radio station too. Never tried it but it's a suggestion.....

The Interio website (www.interio.ch), has a section called möbelbörse, where you can buy and sell used furniture, etc.... and it's free.

I have to say that I have been a member on the ricardo.ch - Einfach, günstig, sicher kaufen und verkaufen auf Ihrem Schweizer Online-Marktplatz. and has found it really good. Been selling and buying stuff. You can get good bargains and until now... thank God it has been a good experience in meeting up with good byers and good purchasers. They even has an evalutation list for all users, and at a certain level of complaints submittted in, ricardo will stop your membership and will block your activities. I find it is good to promote serious members within the
website. Once I submitted a complaint to ricardo regarding one buyer who did not want to pay up, apparently it was not the only complaint they have received. So they stop his activities and the buyer called me up to apologize and ask me to give him another another chance, which I did and the ricardo team "released" his membership again.
Talking about Swiss efficiency.

Hello

You can try the MarketPlace > Goods & services section on www.glocals.com

Its free, and you don't have to reveal your email address online as people can reply through our internal mail system.

Good luck

Oded

Be careful with Ricardo, no one speaks English for support, buyers can place bids and never become under fire for not buying what you sell (happened to me three times), it is only in French and German, so when you place an ad, don't write the search heading in English or it wont get found when others search. My experience, less headaches to throw it away!!

Throw away a piano! Yikes!

At least give things you can't sell/give away to the charity shops. They will come pick up the stuff if you give then a few weeks notice. (I.e. they won't come at the last minute.)

If you're living in Bern, there's a shop in Breitenrein called "Speedy Cash". Perhaps you could try to sell your wares there.

Buying / selling online

Hi guys and gals,
a friend told me that she buys and sells a lot of stuff on "ricardo.ch".It is similar to ebay,but in Switzerland.I popped in there and was surprised (positively) as to what you find there..
Worth looking there for furniture,electrical appliances and even holiday vouchers!
Regards...Welwitschia

Re: Buying / selling online

If you want a fixed price bargain I can highly recomment Kijiji. Its the Swiss version of the legendary Gumtree, a classified listing site that started in the UK.

Brilliant site Castro, you could spend hours on there looking for things you didn't even know you wanted.

Since the last post in this thread (before yours) was in 2008 I would hazard a guess that things have changed since then and the link is no longer valid.

It is the biggest in the Swiss French area.
