The other day, I wanted to dispose of the refrigerator and washing machine that I had at home, so I thought about sending it to a recycling shop, but since it was an old type of refrigerator, I decided to have it picked up free of charge at Gimoti.
Therefore, it was until I registered it on the site posted by a local called "Gimoti" and actually had it taken over.I'd like to tell you the story today.
Gimoti is a very useful site
"Local Bulletin Board Simoti" is a popular site."Local Bulletin Board Gimoti" is a site that contains a wide range of local information.There are many genres such as job information, event information, real estate information, etc., but among them, the most popular category is "sell and give".Since you can trade directly near your home, if you can come to pick it up directly, you don't have to pay for shipping.It is supported not only by flima and auction sites, but also for posting information that is good for local people.Unlike Mercari, the biggest advantage is that you can come directly.
However, as for the management side, it seems that it is prohibited in principle to have you come directly, and it seems that it does not recommend it, but it is better to have you come to pick it up if it is furniture even if you say such a thing.
Benefits of Gimoti
The advantage of Gimoti is that you can feel free to sell and choose how to trade on the Internet.The biggest advantage is that you are free to choose this trading method.
For example, if you try to trade large furniture such as tansu, it will cost 10000 yen including postage.And, because it costs 10000 yen only by the postage, the take-home after the sale becomes only about the tear of the sparrow.However, if it is Ajimoti, it does not enter the worry of the postage because it comes to the transaction after the exhibition.
Disadvantages of Gimoti
The disadvantage is that we don't recommend direct trading first.I think that this is written for the escape of responsibility by the management side, but it is better to stop the principle because direct trading is prohibited originally.
The next is the trouble that occurs in direct trading.
Specifically, there seems to be the following troubles.
I lost contact with the winning bidder.
Unlike the Flima app, Gimoti can only be purchased if they agree with each other by talking on a bulletin board.If the purchaser decides, there is a button to determine the purchaser, but it may be difficult to feel like purchased compared to other apps, and you may not be able to pay or become out of touch even though the purchaser has decided.
The successful bidder did not come to the trading place or was canceled.
In addition to shipping products, you can also take the method of having them actually come to pick it up.It is convenient because it does not cost shipping if you actually come to pick it up, but it is often not coming to the trading place, it is said that a sudden cancellation may be done.
There is such a risk of simotty, but unless it is a high-value transaction, isn't it an attractive service?Please try to use it together by all means!
