Request: Wardrobe or clothes rail/storage (SW16) - Hi If anyone has a wardrobe or clothes rail I'd happy to collect tomorrow. Putting up a relative for a few months so need a temporary solution for our spare room. Not fussed about size, or quality, just somewhere to hang a few shirts afterironing would be great. Thanks C Offer: IKEA DiningTable (SW16) Gifted - 120x75 To be collected Saturday. Has pretty much always been covered with a table cloth but some small cup stains on it. Not treated so might be of interest to someone who wants to sand it down and paint it (this was always our plan but never got round to it). It does not have sleeves to extend. Will not be dismantled so may suit someone with a large car/van. No time wasters please as we are putting up a larger dining table. Please tell me when you can collect from Valley Road Streatham. Thanks Chabs Offer: Fridge freezer (SW16) Gifted - 5 years old Needs a good deep clean as the drain hole needs unblocking. The hole keeps frosting over and collecting water in the bottom of the fridge - assumably because there is something that has got stuck down there. See pics. We are getting a new, bigger, fridge primarily because of those reason as this fridge is too small for us to avoid over packing and covering up the drain hole, which ends up causing blockages. Otherwise, freezer and everything else is in working condition. Available to collect from tomorrow late afternoon as we'll need to defrost once our new fridge freezer arrives. Please confirm you have appropriate transport when saying you would like to collect Thanks

Offer: Dish rack (SW16) Gifted - Used a handful of times then has been in a storage box for about 18months as it didn't really fit our sink and we bought a new one Ready to collect from today Offer: Strimmer - Possibly Broken? (SW16) Gifted - Black and Decker About ten years old. Not sure if what's wrong with it can be fixed? Worked fine last year but took out to use this year and didn't, just does not have much power when turned on. But hoping to go artificial in the coming months so have no intention of trying to fix it. Might suit someone's with a little more patience than myself. Ready to collect tomorrow Request: Wood for Fence/Fencing Materials (SW16) - After much bickering with a neighbour I have decided I am going to attempt to build a wooden fence on the left hand side. We sorted out our side (right hand side) about 18 months ago, but cannot do anything else to our garden due to their out of control garden spreading into ours. And they refuse to sort out their fence. There is currently a deteriorating wire fence, but I am hoping with maybe second hand panels, or wood I can build in between the concrete posts? As it's not really our responsibility and it's a council property so won't ever see a return on it, hoping to do it super cheap! Any materials that would help would be great! Offer: Internal Standard Door (SW16) Gifted - Standard internal fire-door 83.2 x 197 cm Giving away as whilst installing flooring, we removed kitchen door - and in doing so realised, how much more space it gave us. The latch is worn - see pics - but can easily be fixed by installing a new one from the handy store. Not sure how often people need new doors - so could easily go for scraps or something. We once had an old she'd collected for a theatre production! Ready to collect as of today. Please check can fit in your car/have a van to transport to avoid time wasting please. Thanks!
