The POCUK 'For Sale' forums have had extended restrictions placed on them in order to attempt to reinforce the fact that they are provided, FOR FREE, as a facility for private, discrete, member-to-member sales.

As such, there has been a change to the forums to prevent posting in the 'For Sale' forums until a minimum contribution of 10 posts has been made by the poster. (10 pointless posts simply made to enable a post in the 'For Sale' forums will be deleted!)

Unfortunately, the code fix to install this restriction also prevents viewing the 'For Sale' forums if you have fewer than 10 posts when you are logged in.

If you have fewer than 10 posts and simply want to browse the 'For Sale' forums, you can do so when you are NOT logged in.

Lifetime Members are exempt from the 10 post rule ... for more details of 'Lifetime Membership' please click HERE.

The POCUK club forums are provided as a free service to the club members.  As such, please respect the following 'rules' with regard to the use of the free 'for sale' services.

To start ... basically - please use the POCUK Classified Ads Service to place your ad, with a simple link to the ad in the 'For Sale' sections here - if not, your ad in the forums will be deleted, without justification.

1. The 'For Sale' forums are strictly for private, discrete, member-to-member sales only.

2. The 'For Sale' forums must not be used for 'trade' sales.  Frequent / regular sales from any individual will be considered to be trade sales. Traders can contact the club at : admin@pocuk.com for details of how to offer trade services.

3. The 'For Sale' forums are for Pajero or Delica related sales only - the goods offered for sale MUST be owned by the club member posting the offer for sale.

4. Price (and, optionally, ovno) must be stated in the offer of sale.

5. There must be no links or references to ebay inviting club members to bid for items you have for sale.

6. Unrelated items must not be offered for sale / swap / p/ex.

7. The seller must display their genuine location in their profile

8. The seller should not add to their own thread simply to 'bump' their ad to the top of the 'view posts since last visit' list or extend the advert for another week ... new, single post comments, such as "Come on, somebody must want this" or "still available" should not be added to the thread.

9. If the seller is posting for the first time, then please observe the following :
> i.  You must have made some sort of contribution within the POCUK forums - a minimum of 10 posts, (other than 'for sale' posts), are required prior to your 'for sale' post.
> ii. You must email your full name, address, landline telephone number and email address to admin@pocuk.com prior to making your first 'for sale' post. (your details will be held offline, strictly for club use only, in relation to your use of the 'for sale' section(s))

10. ANY 'For Sale' ads, or any links to your own Classified Ad(s), placed in ANY section in the forums, (including any part of your personal profile - eg in your signature), rather than using the 'Classified Ads' service, will be removed without justification to the original author - continued attempts to place ads within the forums will result in a warning and, ultimately, the suspension of the offender's account.  The basic Classified Ads service is free for the first seven days - extended options are available for a small fee.  Goods for sale must not be re-advertised using the 'free seven day period' in order to avoid paying for an extended ad.

For the classified ads service, Please click HERE to drop in the front-end, or HERE for the POCUK section.

Please remember the old axiom "buyer beware"!  It is, ultimately, up to you, the buyer, to convince yourself that you are happy with the integrity of the seller.  The POCUK is not liable for any goods bought or sold through the free forum services.

Please ensure that the seller supplies you with a land-line number on which you can call them to confirm the deal before you part with any money.

Buyers - please use the Rate the Seller forum to help other club members.

Failure to comply with the above 'rules' will result in the ad being immediately removed.

Regular 'abuse' of the 'for sale' forums will result in a formal review of the offending account.

If you're simply wondering what your vehicle is worth, please don't put up a 'fishing' post stating that you're thinking about selling and wondering what it's worth - to check for current values, please check Auto Trader <-- Click to link

So - basically - please use the POCUK Classified Ads Service to place your ad, with a simple link to the ad in the 'For Sale' sections here - if not, your ad in the forums will be deleted, without justification.

Hopefully, this will help to make the free services available for member-to-member sales a bit safer!

Simon
