    No thanks, this includes the stand so anything much less than asking would be too much of a bargain. Also if you're in Athens then how to you propose collecting the speaker please?

    i already got the stand,so i dont need it.Of course i can arrange parcelforce to come and collect the speaker,dont worry about that.So my proposal is 850GBP for the speaker only,without the stand.I am pretty sure you can get 150GBP for the stand only so you will get your 1000GBP.What do you think?

    I can do £950 for the HTM2D and stand (I have the box), provided you also pay for collection, insurance & packing materials. I’ll get a price for the packing today and it will take a few days to actually get them delivered.

    This is why I recommended collection as my experience is that anything not armour plated and surrounded by armed guards is vulnerable to our lowest possible running costs mail services.

    This is what the box and polystyrene looks like - it’s single skinned which makes it vulnerable to crushing. I discussed this with a dealer today and they use pallets to ship speakers, as do the manufacturers. I’m suggesting finding a triple layer cardboard box and some sturdy filler to wrap the original box. If you want it sent in just the original box and filling, then it is at your own risk.

    The box is 95 x 45 x 54 cm and so far I’ve found this for the cardboard box:
    Extra Heavy Duty Cardboard Boxes | Kite Packaging

    Or this for pallets:
    Cardboard Pallet Box with Timber Pallet from Kite Packaging

    Please let me know how you want the speaker packed.

    That’s thrown things. In my opinion it’s not a done deal for the centre as we’ve not agreed the extra for packaging (it wasn’t included in the original post) so I’m happy to accept. However if that causes a problem for the mods then this’ll end up in disputes and everyone will get upset.

    I’ll report this post and ask for a ruling.

    @Turlough, as the seller it entirely your choice as to who you wish to sell to as long as there is no agreed deal on thread. As there isn’t one here - yet, you are fine.

    This is expensive kit and whilst I would always encourage members to be fair in trades, in particular, where offers have been received, I do feel a bulk purchase and a collection in general would be more beneficial to both parties and less prone to risk.

    As said though, it’s entirely your choice.

    They received a 10 point warning for withdrawing from an agreed deal which has also given them a trading ban.
