Please ensure you read the following before placing an advert or replying to one.
1. Make sure you get as many contact details as possible always get a landline number and not just a mobile number. And most important of all get a home address from the seller.
2. Keep all details whether they are e-mails or private messages they can be used against someone should the deal go wrong e.g. not sending out goods/money
3. MK1OC is in no way responsible for non receipt of any transaction that you have with a seller for goods or wanted items YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
4. MK1OC and people associated with running or helping MK1OC will not get involved with transactions that go wrong for whatever reason. They may choose to help out if a transaction goes wrong for but please remember this is down to our own discretion.
5. Please be clear about what you are selling and where abouts you are located - ensure you fill in the location in your user profile. Also, if you do not plan to return here for a while, make sure you enable email in your profile or leave a phone number so that people can get back to you.
6. When people are selling goods, only reply to them if you are interested in the goods that are on offer. Any user that deems it funny to reply to an item for sale with no intention of buying the goods but just to leave rude/silly remarks will have their access removed without warning for a month or longer if necessary.
7. Can we ask that people do not make comments about the price being asked for items. By all means make an offer to see whether the person will accept or not. Breaking this rule may result in a timed gag from admin.
8. Should we get complaints about people who sell goods and not send items out, we may block your access to the for sale/wanted and cars for sale forum. This is final and your access may not be re-instated. Paid up MK1OC members will not be treated any different to registered users. All details of bad sellers are logged and kept by MK1OC and all information may be handed over to police or trading standards for recovery of goods or money. Please be aware of this when placing an advert.
9. Tis, Epc and other pirate software/media are not to be advertised on MK1OC. Any person seen trying to sell this well have their adverts removed from this site and may also be banned from selling again on MK1OC. MK1OC doesn't want the selling of any copied copyright software whether it is Vauxhall related or not, that includes DVD copyright material of any nature. Original legitimate software may be advertised.
10. Links to items that you have for sale on e-bay will be accepted. Ensure that the advert contains full information on the product being sold - a simple link is not good enough. Also, ensure you put the word "Ebay" in the advert title. All ebay adverts must be placed in the ebay forum.
11. Any goods that you have for sale must now have a base price - this is being introduced because people are getting fed up when making offers only to be told the offer isn't enough. Having a base price will stop time wasting on both parties. Do not list items with “Open to Offers” as more often than not “Offers” will offend.
12. Advertising for those who do not yet have access to the for sale forums or who have been banned for bad selling is not allowed. Those found to be doing so will be banned from selling as well as the person they are selling for.
Any complaints about having your access removed should be directed to the Admin.
13. All items listed for sale must be relevant for this club i.e. items must be either MK1 Astra or Kadett D related.
14. You must have a minimum of 30 posts on the site before you can list items for sale. If you have genuine reasons for selling then please contact admin who will review the sale items and allow/disallow the sale.
15. If any of the above rules are not followed or actions with a reasonable time then the posts will be deleted.
Rules may change without notice. _________________ 4x4 Turbo MK1 Astra - may actually be finished this year!
