    If the receipt is dated within last 11 months or less I can offer £210 delivered.

    I can pay literally as soon as agreed/receive payment details.

    It was purchased last May, so it's a little older than 11 months unfortunately... Would take £210 delivered though.

    £190 cash on collection is a bit too low - sorry, would prefer cash in the bank but if somebody wants to collect they can collect and do a transfer on arrival?? I think most people have online banking on their phones these days :) Would have to be early morning though for collection, before 8AM...

    I'm sure I could get over today but don't know what happens now as @buglebum is interested at the price you stated in an earlier post.

    I've been informed that the goods have been received but aren't in the condition that was confirmed in the opening post.

    May I have your comments on the matter please @NRmedia @buglebum

    Thank you.

    Hi Andy,
    I made the report on one of the PM posts to draw attention to the situation.

    I have made no contact with seller to notify him of not being happy with condition as wanted to make sure of taking correct approach.

    The item was delivered approximately an hour ago.
    I have not opened the packaging.

    The item has been sent bare in it's original packaging (watchdogs PS4 bundle from Argos according to an attached Argos product code label). So I have received exactly what you would reeceive if you purchased in argos. No packaging of any description around the box for safe transport, no bubble wrap, nothing.

    What has been delivered, looks tired and worn and impossible to establish if transported with care and attention or roughed around. I don't feel comfortable accepting any games console that is heavy and sensitive, has an opitcal drive without proper cardboard packaging or at a bare minimum some bubble wrap and then polyethene wrapped around.
    The delivery label has been applied directly to the product PS4 box so removing that for starters will cause the box to look less than stellar.
    The OP stated that everything was in excellent condition, maybe it was before being sent and maybe it is inside, but the box isn't and I don't feel happy to accept an item with no warranty and with possibility of life shortened from transport without proper packaging.

    I'm happy to arrange return at seller's expense provided a full refund is given beforehand + postage back to them, delivered in the same state that I have received the item using the same courier (UPS).

    Had the item arrived safe and sound I would be happy to mark this as a possitive.
    However since this has transpired I do feel that I need to add that this item was no sent on the day promised and it was left for me to text the seller to establish where the item was and if it had been sent.

    Original sale agreed and paid for within minutes and collection was to be Tuesday.
    Seller hadn't been online by Wednesday afternoon so I sent a polite message and received a response saying that it hadn't been collected but would be dropped off that day. This is exactly what the seller did. But I do note he was very specific about needing the money on time and I waited in until 2PM wenesday for no reason and the seller had my number to drop me a quick message but didn't.

    Really just left a little cheesed off overall.

    I would note the important part of the OP

    "I am selling my PS4 Console and Games, everything is in excellent condition, the PS4 comes in original box with everything that was originally included..."

    Have sent NRmedia a text requesting he adds his side.
    I've calmed down now, so bascally what his comes down to is that the PS4 has been sent in it's box with a courier label attached instead of inside another box with padding etc.

    I apologize it I sounded bitter above NRmedia, you've not been rude to me or discourteous in any way.

    Thanks,

    Hi Dave,

    I'm sorry to hear that you are not happy with the way the item was delivered. I apologize again for you receiving it a day late, like I explained before, the collection was missed by the Mrs on Tuesday, and I didn't find out until returning home on Wednesday, so I booked a drop-off point service with UPS instead to ensure it would get to you no more than a day late. All in all delivery has cost me around £35.

    I did consider putting the 'bare packaging' inside another box, but the only boxes I could find at Staples, and The Range were too big (the 'bare packaging' would have been shaken around inside during transit, so I made the decision to send it as is to avoid it being shaken around). The console is held tight in-place inside the box thanks to the original packaging, and as the courier can see what the item is, I would assume they wouldn't be throwing it around.

    I don't know if you want to open it up and test it first, or if you would just prefer to cancel the sale straight away, get a refund and send it back to me. Either way i'll do what you decide.

    Once again, I am sorry that you are not happy with how it was delivered.

    Let me know what you would like to do.

    Thanks,

    Good lord I feel awful now for how I put the above.
    I'm sorry, it's just usually it ends up with some person that has an ego/pride problem with these things and that speaks instead of empathy and it looks like I've done that instead.

    Too much time spent on ebay for me dealing with the undesirables in life!

    Right, well I'm very grateful for your response here so can offer to pay for return postage to you.
    I will send it back in a box that will fit and can have it on it's way to you tomorrow by UPS.
    I would ask for the refund to be made before dispatch though.

    If you can agree to that then I see no reason to take a negative view here and hope that sounds reasonable.

    If I can pm you my bank details now I will arrange collection immediately and then send you the UPS tracking within the next 2 hours.

    Let me know if the above is agreeable and can get on it right away.

    No problem. I can understand, I have been on the receiving end of awful deals before and know what it's like trying to communicate and rectify problems with some people.

    I have no problem with your decision, I wont be able to do the full refund until wages are in next week - are you OK to hold on to it until then? I don't expect you to pay the return shipping, i'll cover that too. If that's OK then pop your bank details over to me in PM and i'll get the funds sent over next week and we can arrange a return delivery.

    My apologies once again!

    Thank you,

    That sounds more than fair to me and I appreciate the willingness to pay for postage.
    Fully insured it will be just over £20 with UPS so happy to pay the extra £1-2

    If you'd prefer a different cheaper method please let me know or not insured for loss/damage that would be £7.79 with UPS according to parcel2go.

    Thanks for being a decent seller.
    Sorting out problems is the hardest part, keeping calm is a skill few have no patronizing tone intended but it's true. I'm quite good on the selling side but when I feel "injusticed" on the receiving end and powerless. That inner ranting fool still climbs out, so thanks for putting up with that :)

    I live just a couple of mins from a UPS drop off point so as soon as you can confirm funds have been transferred back to me I will drop the PS4 off that day provided before 5-6pm excluding monday as I've got something on between 5-8pm but all clear apart from that.

    I'll pm details now.

    No problem at all!

    Fully covered UPS is perfect, i'll include an additional £20 for that. I've received your details and will give you a message next week once transfer has been made.

    My apologies once again for the trouble.

    Thanks,
