Backpage Classi-side-effects

As we steer our fledgling service, we occasionally take a look at how some classifieds services are presented in the media. We have recently read a long article about Backpage founders, at least one of whom was arrested for “child pimping”.

Smartphones, Electronics, IKEA furniture, and more!

The items for sale are described in the photo album, and that is probably the easiest way to browse through them. If you do not see the rich media below, go to its main page or new. You may browse the items, with more detail, as well as the asking prices, on Craigslist and / or Kijiji. If you see a small solid triangle at the beginning of a new paragraph, you may click it to reveal more text. You may also jump straight to Availability, Location and Directions or Contact. You can request most of the text in each section below on your mobile phone by texting 416-EXTRACT (398-7228) with the extension listed in the ad and a hashtag of the heading. For example, texting "9xx #location" (without quotes) will return the address while "9xx #public" will return public transportation detailed directions. Obviously, you need to replace xx above with the actual digits of the correct extension number.

All the Goodies

The prices listed below are the original prices. Asking prices are generally fixed, unless you are buying more than one item, in which case you may get a significant discount. Items less than $15 must be purchased together with other items to meet the minimum sale price.

However, if you would like to see more details, you can see them below. There are more items than we can possibly list here - chances are, if you need something, I probably have it! All prices are negotiable, all the offers are considered, everything must go, and if you get more things, you can certainly get some for free!

Availability

I am generally available weekday evenings around 10-11pm, and early morning to noon on the weekend except Friday, when I am usually unavailable. Since I do not live in my storage room, we need to schedule an appointment at least one day in advance and reconfirm about 2 hours prior. It may take me 45 minutes to get there, so I would appreciate advance notice if you are going to be late, as I cannot wait more than 15 minutes without notice. I will also try to let you know if I'm running late by texting, although that is not always possible (for instance, if I'm stuck in a subway delay and/or my phone is dead). If you need to inspect the item for more than 1 minute, please let me know in advance. Please also let me know in advance if you are interested in more than one item, as most of my stuff is tightly packed and it might take me a while to find it.


Location

Most of the items I sell are located at "Secure Self Storage", 4590 Dufferin St, one block North of Finch, on the West side of Dufferin, in Toronto, North of an office tower and South of Discount Car Rental (http://goo.gl/maps/7y7Da). The building is quite large and has several entrances. The most accessible at all times is the North side-entrance right next to Discount Car Rental, pictured below. There is a parking lot right in fron of it, which is actually the second parking lot you see as you come from Dufferin.

North (side) entrance. From 4sale or 4free

It is best to look online and let me know in advance what you want if you want more than one item, as everything is tightly packed and I might need to look for it. The building has several entrances and exits, some triggering a fire alarm and only one is open and easily accessible at all times. Going through the details below will save time and avoid delays.

Driving

Driving North from Finch and Dufferin, you will first see on your left an office tower with a Druxy's Famous Deli at street level. Keep driving North on Dufferin, and you will see Secure Self Storage with its big electronic scrolling sign, not always properly set up. Keep driving and turn left (toward West) onto the small street in between Discount Car Rental and Secure Self Storage, and you will first see a small parking lot on your left. Drive past it toward the bigger lot, on a slight slope upward, until you see the entrance with large glass doors. Once arrived, text me with a description of your car and I'll come with the item.

Public Transportation

Take the subway to Downsview subway station, or the 196 Express if coming from Yonge and Sheppard. Take then 196B Express to York University from the bus platform, and get off at Finch, which is the first stop, about 5 minutes from Downsview. Other options are 105, 117, and Viva Orange. Cross Dufferin to the West side then walk one block North, along the bus pathway, to 4590 Dufferin, Secure Self Storage. You will see a big sign and a scrolling text panel in its front yard. Keep walking to the small street before Discount Car Rental, then turn left and walk West in-between the two buildings to the large glass doors representing the North side-entrance. Text me when you are at the entrance with a description of yourself and I will come with the item.



Delivery

To deliver, I have to go get the item from storage and bring it to our meeting point. I can only deliver small, light items in the area South of Bloor, between Bathurst and Parliament, except Toronto Islands, as well as any TTC subway station. I require a minimum $6 prepayment to cover my transportation costs, preferably by Interac Email, with the balance due in cash on delivery. For a smooth transaction, please be sure to uniquely identify the meeting place and provide a description of yourself. In particular, subway stops have more than one exit so please specify it. Please see Conditions for more and for shipping. Please note that in order to deliver anything, I need to make at least 3 trips by TTC and especially around rush hour, there's a good chance I will be late due to TTC issues; if and when that happens, I will keep you updated by text/SMS.



Payment

Cash is preferred but other methods (except cheques or money orders, which I will never accept) may be agreed upon in advance. Payment is only accepted in person, unless we agree on some shipping method in advance. I might be able to accept PayPal or Interac Email for payment in person - please let me know well in advance so that I can be prepared. For Interac Email, you may set a question with the answer nomoneyorder (no spaces). You may use the email address listed below.



Contact

My smartphone is quite unreliable for voice communication and I prefer to answer queries by email or text. However, if you prefer voice communication, please call Andrei at 416-EXTRACT (i.e., 398-7228) with the extension from the ad, SMS the same number starting your message with '9xx' without quotes, or email 4sale0125andrei@ezvoip.co
It is best to SMS at the number above, in advance, as we may not have access to email remotely. Also, please note that when entering the extension you should not press 9 twice, once is enough, and you need to enter the digits at 1-2 second interval, even while a voice message is playing. Finally, I am often in noisy or non-private environments where I cannot answer the phone or return phone calls, which is why I prefer to conduct these transactions over email or SMS (text).



Freebie

Here's how to make at least $75 quickly by simply opening a bank account with the second oldest Canadian bank, established 1832. They will give you $50 as their standard offer, but if you use my Orange Key, 13727786S1, I will give you an additional $25 out of the $50 they will give me. You can copy the key then go to their website or email me, telling me you want a referral, and I'll send it your way straight from their website. They have some additional promotions allowing you to make more money in bonuses.

..and here is the story if you're interested in the details..

Tangerine is an online bank started by ING Direct (a Dutch bank, who left the Canadian market a few years ago, selling it to Scotiabank). Just like any Canadian bank, it is insured by the government - FDIC, so it is just as safe as any other Canadian bank - and Canadian banks are considered among the safest in the world. However, unlike other banks, they have very few expenses, because they don't have to maintain a brick and mortar presence. They currently have a promotion where they'll give you $50 just to open an account with them, linking your existing bank and depositing $100. They give you $50 within a month or less, after which you can take your $150 and do whatever you want (you can take your $100 back even before receiving $50, but they might not give you $50 then). They are betting that once you see that they don't charge you any fees and they give a respectable interest rate even on your chequing account, you'll do most of your banking with them.
An unfortunate truth in the Canadian retail banking market is that many banks promise "free banking" but they seldom deliver, charging you for all sorts of things. With Tangerine you don't have to close your other account. You will even earn real interest on your money, around 2%, and can make additional cash bonuses if you switch your payroll. They will not even charge you overdraft for the first 20 days or so.
If you use my "Orange Key"- 13727786S1 - when signing up, they will also give me $50, which I will share with you by giving you $25 by Interac Email (which is a free transaction with them) or by delivering one of the items I'm selling for free. Everybody wins - they win a good customer, you get $75 and truly free banking with good interest and I get $25. Once you join, you can tell your friends and make additional $50 yourself this way. Obviously, they could stop this offer at any time and then I won't be able to give you anything, so please act fast if free banking interests you - Tangerine.ca - or, if you prefer, email me (see below) and I will email you the invitation.
