0232: /pay.to.pickup

paytopickup

OK, no one wants it, now what?

So you couldn’t unload your stuff at /free.to.pickup.  Apparently those vintage and stained chairs just are not anyone’s style anymore. Well… you just can’t leave it on the curb; it needs to be removed.

Renting a dumpster will cost a few hundred bucks at least, and there is no way all that stuff will fit in the back of your Subaru.  It’s time to post to localweb.is/free.to.pickup.  Just take a photo of the lot and post what you are offering, maybe $50 to take it to the dump.  Anyone with a pickup truck could take that stuff to the dump and probably profit $20 or so for 20 minutes of work.  Not bad.

Or maybe someone will just want to take on your “problem” for $50 and keep the stuff in their garage.  Who knows, who cares.  You are willing to pay $50 to have this stuff moved off your curb.

All of the slashes such as /free, /free.to.pickup, and /pay.to.pickup are not categories that were created by the folks at local web HQ.  They were created by patrons themselves, and spread by patrons themselves.  By allowing patrons to use the local web the way they want to, it creates the most efficient avenue to getting stuff done, sold or just moved.  If there is no /pay.to.pickup in your area, just make it by simply going to the URL and posting.  Someone will see it.

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
