messageIS EDF now a London wide facility
Posted by eberg 07 April, 2016 10:03

After lengthy communications with someone over a number of days I finally got to the bit in the transaction when the seller gave me the address to collect form. It was in a place called Wallington which is somewhere south of Croydon. After all the negotiations , missed calls etc the item that I was interested in buying was miles away. One of the great things about EDF is the locality thing. If you trade something it's usually with someone a few streets away or 5 minutes in the car, on a few occasions I've bought stuff from acquaintances. The deal fell part as I wasn't willing to drive to Wallington. The seller was a bit miffed as she said she'd turned down offers from other potential buyers. The seller said that she had used EDF for buying and selling when she lived in Clapham and didn't understand my reason for pulling out of the deal, I reckon the round trip would have been a couple of hours. I suggest that
people check where pick ups or drop offs are expected or maybe buyers/sellers could put the first part of their postcode on their ads when they post them.

I's a good point and unfortunately it's not really something we can do much about. We make a rule about keeping it East Dulwich centric but we can't monitor the For Sale section to make sure that happens.
