"We had bits of kit here collecting dust for ages which we always meant to sell on, but we never got around to doing anything about it for a variety of reasons - and I kept encountering people in the exact same situation," said UEP's Steve Butcher. "A major reason no one was selling their unwanted kit was that they didn't have the time to get it together - it was always last on the agenda and something that no one ever got around to. Also, until now, eBay was the only serious option to reach a wider audience."
