Want to sell a neon sign "RADIO SERVICE". Picture included, some of the black paint between the letters is flaking off but that should be a easy fix. Transformer included, i think it is marked 6000v 18ma. I have no use for this and really don't want to ship. Asking $300. Local pickup only (for now) at 18424 PA.

I'd dearly love to have that or trade you something for it but the problem is its pick up only unfortunately for 99.9% of buyers that's almost a death sentence. And in many cases you end up only getting Pennies on the dollar for what something is really worth your best bet would be to take it to Kutztown radiofest you shouldn't have a hard time finding a new home for that and probably get better prices.

I don't know how to ship it. It would be very fragile. I've sold radios at Kutztown about 15 years ago, i had 13 consoles and sold them all. I am about 75 miles north of Kutztown so if anyone was interested i am not that far away or would meet halfway there?

FYI:
Having items packed at a packing store, is usually a good solution when you're not experienced.
FEDEX office is usually best and cheapest. UPS store or local rogue packer can be ok too.
Just takes some good communication with the person packing it, conveying it's fragility and your needs.
Usually adds about 20-25 bucks to the equation and adds so greatly to your potential buyers that you're going to get
that much more.
I'd think you could get that to anywhere in the Conus for $45-$60 total w/ packing with fedex ground.
Good luck

As the owner of a vintage neon sign, I would never trust a pack-and-ship place like UPS or FedEx to safely pack and ship one of those signs. Apart from the question of packing skills/smarts/training or lack thereof, those stores don't have the right materials to securely crate a neon sign.

As hoffies2 suggested, definitely consider listing it on craigslist.org. You want someone to come and pick it up! Keep in mind that a vintage neon sign is a crossover item, desirable to more than one category of collectors: sign collectors as well as radio nerds. You might want to consider that when writing your listing description, as well as picking the sales category.

Thanks for all the packing tips. Yes it is very fragile. It may have to go to Kutztown in the spring. I do sell other items on Craigslist so I am familiar with all of that.
