Most people have used eBay or at least heard of it. If not, here’s a quick explanation of what the internet consumer-to-consumer site is all about.
Founded in 1995, eBay.com is an auction and shopping website in which people and businesses buy and sell a wide variety of goods and services worldwide. Whilst eliminating the need for a middleman in trade, the site also strives to provide a safe and secure Internet experience. Users from all corners of the globe are connected in a continually broadening marketplace where over 6.4 million items are listed every day. It’s said that the site averages more than one billion views per day.
The most expensive item ever sold on eBay was a 405-foot, steel mega-yacht (marketed as a Gigayacht) which was offered up for auction on eBay November 3rd, 2006 with a ‘buy now’ price of $85 million.
When people close in on retirement, there is a tendency to ask questions.

Every man needs his space, that goes without saying. It could be the garden shed, the spare room, the attic or a converted garage where you can come and go as you please. Known affectionately, as a ’Man Cave’, your secret getaway is, in many ways, the last bastion of masculinity.
Enjoyed by the likes of Hollywood superstars, George Clooney and Brad Pitt, the trend of the ‘Man Cave’ is also taking off in the homes of many British men. A survey commissioned earlier this year, revealed how 61% of British men admitted to having created their own ‘Man Cave’ in their home. Continue reading
In times of recession, moving to a smaller home or office is commonplace. We call it downsizing – a simple way to not only reduce your overheads but to have a jolly good clear out and create some space for your next move. Your new property will be more manageable and will, of course, make financial sense.
But what about your belongings? What will you do with all of those antiques, possessions, books and files that you have built up over the years? What about the kids’ stuff which you want to get rid of, but can’t? What about the furniture that was suitable in the garden of your three bedroom semi-detached, but will not squeeze into the back garden of your new home? Continue reading
