If you want to sell framing equipment...

This is a good place to advertise framing tools, but they are often large, difficult to package adequately, and they are often heavy.

Maybe that is why so many sellers specify "pick up only", but that phrase elminates a lot of potential buyers who are beyond easy driving distance. For that, you could do as well with an ad in the local newspaper.

It would be better for sellers to instead specify, "Packing and shipping at buyer's expense", and offer to arrange it. The logistics would require the buyer to make only a few phone calls to a local packing/shipping company, who could pick up the equipment, pack it, and ship it.

That way, potential buyers could come from around the country, instead of just from around the area.
