Great spot! Hopefully I'll snag one of the coaches!

Fleebay tip, make only one bid at the max you are prepared to pay but bid only 10-15 seconds before bidding closes. Ideally last 5 seconds if you can type fast enough. That's when most auctions are won. You don't want to leave enough time for last minute red mist when somebody manually outbids you. But make sure you are already logged in otherwise your bid might not make it before bidding ends. Check sellers 'feedback rating' is 100%, and read description and view photos thoroughly before bidding. Also watch out for expensive postage especially to Ireland. Some UK sellers grossly over charge for postage to Ireland (ie some think anywhere off the island of GB is the third world, foreign and across distant oceans where people don't speak proper :) ). High postage to Ireland can sometimes be offset by using addressPal €3.75 on top of internal UK postage costs, and you can collect from your local post office.

Good luck.

or 'pulling the trigger' as a friend calls it! This is the only way he will bid - on vinyl records though, so you can relax! 😉

Address pal has a few guidelines and prices depending on your drop point and if it goes over max size,  I try use use this for everything now and it works well. 

Some UK Crowds wont take the address though, Track Shack and Phoenix Precision are 2.

Anyone got any tips on Vectis, Bidding on 3 IOM 4 wheel coaches at the moment.
