At one point there were some posts from a ‘Miss Fire Buyer’ (iirc), saying essentially ‘post me a contract with your excess inventory and I will pay you 50% of the EVEpraisal price of the list’.
I tend to pile up inventory I have no intention of selling/marketing, and if I just convert them to minerals to sell the losses are ridiculous. For example, one current inventory at a hub has:
13,125 m3 volume
EVE estimated value: 103 million ISK
EVEpraisal value: 93 million buy value, 168 million sell value
(standard items, armor, shield, weapon modules, scanners, ECM, cap/web/neut stuff, the usual)
I’m told the ‘standard approach’ is just, throw it all in a contract, mark it Fire Sale, price it low, get rid of it.
- Is anybody offering a clearout service like Miss Fire Buyer did at one point?
- If I go with the ‘just throw it all on a Fire Sale contract’, what percentage of which appraisal would be standard? Do I need anything special in the contract name to allow fire sale buyers to spot it?
- Is it worth shipping stuff to Jita (prob with Red Frog or something) or should I just cart my own junk to the nearest hub and contract it there? I have considerable piles of stuff at all the hubs.
Any tips or advice, much appreciated! Thanks!
