I checked, it's even more than the quote I got at the PO yesterday. Ridiculous.

Aww, I never thought about that. Hope so!

Just saw your post that the cost is higher than the PO. That surprises me.

I have sold exercise equipment and a lot of baby items from my grandson. If I lived alone I would be wary of having strangers coming to my home.

Even if I didn't live alone! I won't sell on Craigslist.
There are too many numbnuts who say they'll come by between such and such a time----- and never show up or even call/email to say they won't. Arrggh!

I'm very wary of Craigslist. I don't like that folks selling or giving away dogs get their dogs used for dog fight bait.

I don't worry about those who don't show up, I worry about the ones who do! It could be someone just looking for a way to get into your home to rob you, or worse. I was selling a piece of exercise equipment and a guy was going to come and look at it and he actually called back to say that he looked up the model number online and it's not the one he is looking for. That was very nice of him to do that, but most people would just not show up.

They always say not to list a dog "free" or at a low price. It's better to find a home for an animal by word of mouth.

I agree. I have a friend who posts daily horror stories about monsters who do this.

I run a small business so I usually ask buyers to come to my shop instead of my home. Most of my CL transactions have been dealt this way. Buyers also feel more comfortable this way.

Shrek sold his motorcycle on Craigslist...it was a good experience, but I made sure both of us were here when the guy was to show up and he brought a friend, too.
