    Default Buyer meets up with seller, or seller meets up with buyer?

    Or do you usually meet in the middle? I've always believed that the buyer should meet up with the seller. How do you guys do it?

    i agree with you
    but sometimes seller may bring to buyer or meet halfway
    at a higher price.

    IMO most times it should be buyer --> seller, especially if it's a bigger item.

    But if it's a smaller item, then meet halfway/convenient place usually.

    meh, depends on the person. If I am selling something of decent value I will go deliver it if I know he is good for the money.

    And I will also go pick up the shit I buy....I guess I am just a nice guy

    I try to meet the buyer halfway but i think downtown is my halfways limit from my place, if i buy and i really think that someone else might grab it first and i really want it. i'll meet that person anywhere they are in the city, first come first serve..

    Something big like a car its better for the buyer to go to the seller. Not a very good chance someone is gonna sell you a stolen (or otherwise sketchy) car from their own house. If a buyer asks me as a seller to meet them somewhere its usually no problem, but i just assumed that most people would prefer to go to the buyer as well.

    99% of the time I meet halfway (ie: at Chinook Centre). I don't mind to meet a reputable buyer somewhere in between. For things I've bought I have always had the buyer suggest that we meet halfway since I live in the deep south, very helpful and considerate of them especially if they live somewhere in the NW.

    for me it all depends to the buyer/seller and they want to do.

    but agree with expensive stuff (500+), meet buyer/seller at his/her or my location

    I used to deliver what I sold to a convenient location for the buyer but they would usually still drive to a place that made it not so hard for me....Like somewhere in their neighbourhood that i could easily find hehe.

    It normally depends on the value of the item i'm selling.

    If it's worth more..i'll meet halfway. If the item is worth only like $30..I believe the buyer should come to meet or meet somewhere nearby.

    Buyer meets seller for big ticket, big value stuff.

    As a buyer I wouldn't have it any other way/

    As a seller, it's a bit weird because you might not want people knowing where your vehicle is parked etc..

    I don't know. whatevers convenient...

    If I buy something, I've always agreed to where the seller wants to meet. If I'm selling something, it's from my house. Personally, I don't need to waste my time for some guy that may end up being a no show.
