OK rant over................... maybe there should be a forum for just the Ontario members who only want to sell their items locally.
I actually never found this post as aggressive and offensive as everyone else seems to have. I guess there are a couple reasons people don't ship... either the item is cheap and not worth taking the time to ship or they don't have much exposure to shipping. I've shipped 100's of parcels in the past couple years so I actually prefer to ship items unless it's like a $40 item where it's not worth it. The biggest reason though is that some stuff is just a pain in the ass to find boxes for and ship... like an exhaust or bumper. Wheels and other parts are fairly straight forward to ship.

I understand the frustration... 90% of the stuff I want is Socal only and it really does suck haha, just message the person offer to cover shipping and to pay asking price + Cash on top... and just wait and see how fast they ship I do it all the time.
