    Hi, I thought I'd give my speakers a go here before I sell elsewhere.

    I have an absolutely immaculate pair of B&W CM5 speakers with original box, accessories and receipt of purchase. The tweeters are untouched. I'm also including a pair of Mission Stance speaker stands, overall in excellent condition, with a few light marks. The stands are also in black. As for pictures, the CM5 are in as-new condition with very light scratches from dust particles which my camera won't even pick up, and I guess if you are after these speakers, you have a good idea as to how they look anyway. If you really want pictures, I could upload a few later.

    I am in London, collection only. I am a busy person so I may not be able to demonstrate them properley, just a heads up now.

    If anyone is interested, please let me know.

    Price and currency: £550
    Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
    Payment method: cash
    Location: London, UK

    I'll post the speakers bit not the stands. Same price and you arrange your own collection?

    Thats ok I was only interested in the speakers. I wouldnt be interested in arranging courier especially if your not discounting your original price. Ill offer 450 inc of postage.

    Edit, just seen you have no feedback on here, so would want you to post them first before payment.

    Sorry mate, not worth me doing it for that. I'd rather keep them in storage.

    I'd do 500 including postage but im not prepared to post before receiving payment, hence why I initially asked for collection only. I know I don't have any feedback but it's not something I'm willing to do.

    Ok thats fair enough, not everyone is happy doing that and im not willing to risk paying someone first with no trading history.
    Ive only just brought some cm1s off here from someone who posted first before payment so it does happen on here.

    If you change your mind let me know otherwise good luck with your sale.

    I'll do 500 if you arrange your own collection and I'll be happy to take payment after?
    Also the cost for the delivery is not within the £500, it's at your own cost.

    Youve already said you would do 500 including postage. As ive said im not interested in arranging courier. If anything goes wrong in transit I dont wont to be responsible for sorting any claims out.

    Well I don't have the time to fuss with couriers, especially if I am not being paid for the item unless I post it. It's too much of an ask for me I'm afraid.
    The deal is £500 and courier costs/arrangements are down to the buyer. Take it or leave it. And I'll be happy to take payment when you receive the item. I have all original packaging so realistically the box could get damaged in transit but the speakers won't.

    Can you let me know the dimensions of the packaging and weight so I can see the cost. If we deal and I arrange courier I obvious cant be held responsible for the packaging the speakers or any damage in transit.

    I'm near Stratford and ill do it at 480 for the sake of convenience.

    I'll check box dimensions when I get home. I don't expect you to take responsibility for packaging at all mate.

    I'll do £480. Would collection on Thursday be OK? I can PM you the details. If I'm honest I'm still slightly uncomfortable with this sending before receiving payment thing but I guess there's not much else I can do!

    I can understand you feeling uncomfortable, but please be reassured by the amount of feedback i have and the cm1s that I have recently recieved before payment.
    This is the main downside to using this forum, zero/low feedback sellers. On here we have no protection for buyers if anything goes wrong, unlike ebay where you have paypal protection. So this is a method of protecting ourselves in high value transactions.

    It's just the fact that I've seen cases where people's accounts have been hacked and their recognised loyalty has been abused by a hacker... Seen it a lot on eBay. I do trust you though.

    PM sent.
