    Has anyone ever used one of those auction services that would basically set up ebay listings for your stuff, accept payment, and then package and send the item and keep a (large) portion of the profit? I am going to be moving and I have tons of stuff to get rid of. The majority of it will be donated but lots of items are collectibles or other semi-valuable items. We are in the process of contracting the construction of our new home along with full time jobs, so we just don't have the time to spend on listing and shipping the items ourselves. TIA!

    Hello, when looking for a Trading Assistant (TA), be prepared to pay upwards of 30-50 % of the selling price. The ones we have around here won't touch an item unless it will sell for $100 or above. They will let you put similar items in lots though, wich can help with some types of collectibles. The way we figured it was that it was better to make something.

    Good luck!
