Mpb photographic

I HAVE HAD A QUOTE FOR MY CANON EQUIPMENT FROM MPB PHOTOGRAPHIC.

I KNOW THEY HAVE ADVERTISED ON PIXALO FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, BUT HAS ANYONE EVER SOLD ANY CAMERAS OR LENSES ETC TO THEM ?

WHAT CONCERNS ME IS, IF I PUT EIGHT OR NINE ITEMS IN A BOX, TO SEND TO THEM,
HOW DO I PROVE WHAT WAS IN THE BOX ?

DO I GET A RECEIPT FROM THEIR COURIER WHEN THEY PICK THE PARCEL UP ?

HOW LONG DO I WAIT FOR PAYMENT ?

HELP AND ADVICE PLEASE

Re: Mpb photographic

Never sold or PX'd to a dealer. You could photograph them in the box and make a list of the items along with their serial numbers.

Re: Mpb photographic

I've never sold to MPB but have bought from them many times. I've found them to be 100% honest and reliable.

Re: Mpb photographic

Agree with Graham about the photos. Effectively, I would make the equivalent of a delivery note, identifying and pricing each individual item (as agreed by the recipient). I know it sounds like extra admin, but it is no more or less than you would expect from a supplier. Their courier is probably just an agent, and I would get them to sign a copy of your delivery note, you will probably have to sign an agreement from them for the carriage of your goods. As with a delivery to you, I would also ask for tracking and delivery information, to know that the goods have arrived.

I would confirm that MPB are buying the kit and not acting on your behalf for the sale, i.e. you get your money when the kit is sold, and ask them about payment. It's more and more common and convenient to use bank transfer - it's my preferred method for the last few years as the transfer is almost instantaneous.

Above all I would make sure that MPB are not just covering the cost of collection but also the insurance of your kit. Although you expect the kit to be handled with care, you can prove damage from the photos. If any items must be protected from rain, cannot take the weight of others on top (e.g. <20Kg), need to be orientated in a certain way, then mark the package accordingly.

(I ordered my EIZO monitor from WEX not so long ago where the manufacturers packaging was clearly marked with regard to orientation and stacking. WEX had re-packaged it upside down in a larger box, that was only marked with orientation and none of the other limitations. The manufacturer's packaging was damaged as well as the outside box. Essentially this was the fault of WEX for not seeing that the outer box was marked correctly and allowed the unit to be mishandled and delivered on the doorstep upside down. I will add that the monitor withstood the ride and arrived without any visible damage and so far has been working fine - but I took photos as I opened everything .)

Re: Mpb photographic

Hi Woody I have both sold ( P X ed) and bought from them over the years, I do an inventory of what's in the box with serial No's and e-mail it to them before sending and include a copy in the box I am sending.
Make sure it is well packed, (bubble wrap, expanded poly Etc.) and all should be fine, I recon I have been dealing with them for over 10 years and always found them prompt, both in collecting and payment, two or three days usually. The couriers don't give a receipt as MPB are the customer not you, but I have had no problems.
Hope this helps Woody, all the best, Charles.

Re: Mpb photographic

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH, FOR YOUR VERY SOUND HELP AND ADVICE.
I AM 100% SURE YET, IF I WILL SELL TO THEM, AS AFTER EXCHANGING A FEW EMAILS WITH THEM, THEY SEEMED VERY PUSHY, LIKE "LETS GET IT BOOKED IN FOR MONDAY " THEN WHEN I SAID I NEEDED MORE TIME " LETS BOOK IT IN FOR WEDNESDAY ".

I EXPLAINED TO THEM, I AM DISABLED AND WOULD HAVE TO WAIT FOR OUR DAUGHTER TO COME OVER AND PACK IT ALL UP FOR ME, THEY DID NOT SEEM TO LISTEN, THEY CAME BACK WITH " LETS GET IT IN FOR WEDNESDAY ".

I DON'T LIKE BEING RUSHED OR PUSHED INTO THINGS. ALSO, THEY ASKED WHERE AND WHEN I BOUGHT THE ITEMS, WHEN I SAID THAT ONE OF MY LENSES CAME FROM ONESTOP DIGITAL, THEY SAID THEY WERE NOT INTERESTED IN IT, AS THEY DON'T KNOW FOR DEFINITE IF THE VAT HAS BEEN PAID, WHICH I THINK IS RUBBISH, AS ONESTOP REFUND THE VAT TO YOU.

SO, STILL A LOT TO THINK ABOUT, BUT AGAIN, THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH FOR YOUR VALUED ADVICE

Re: Mpb photographic

I've bought stuff from them and never had a problem and I can't see much complaining of them anywhere on internet I have had a few quotes off them and as many other outlets they want it for peanuts and out it for top money but if they didn't would they still be trading they certainly seem to have some stock

Re: Mpb photographic

You could always get a quote from Ffordes. They will buy from you ( i think or they do - or else I get confused with p-ex) or sell for you on commission. The former is normally less than commission, but is obviously quicker. I've bought from them and find them great. My brother has sold to them, and had no issues - I think he sold both ways. Worth getting a few quotes either way.

Re: Mpb photographic

Thank you chris, i have bought items from ffordes several times. I got a quote once, to sell them my mamiya rz 67 pro11, plus some c330's plus other mamiya items, but their quote was an insult, i got 500 more from a mamiya dealer.

When they sell items for you on commission, they charge 20%

Re: Mpb photographic

No problem. Only a suggestion. Guess sometimes there quotes are lower than they should be. Only can speak from experience. New they took a commission on the longer sale.

Re: Mpb photographic

i have bought from them and the only issue i had was when i had to return a lens cos it was faulty. they had no problem exchanging the lens but i inadvertently left a uv filter on the lens they got back, which they denied emphatically. so they got a good uv filter for nowt off me which i wasnt pleased about but its there word against mine
