Be Prompt With Pickup When Freecycling

Good afternoon Alexandria Freecyclers,

We hope that your holidays were pleasant and that you are having a happy new year!

The moderators would like to take a moment to remind everyone that, in the interest of making easy to use for everyone, you should always be ready to pick up an item promptly when responding to an OFFER post or making a WANTED post. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself "Will I be able to pick this up by the end of tomorrow?" If you can't, then you should probably let the item go. At the very least, be honest with the offerer about when you can pick it up in your first response.

We try to maintain a friendly environment for everyone here at Alexandria, so this measure helps make sure that other members do not get frustrated waiting a long time for someone to pick up an item. This includes large items where one may need to procure a truck or van to transport the item.

Thank you and happy Freecycling,

Your Alexandria Moderation Team
