I am thinking about selling my games - XM pro and WCS. However, both are in my basement which does have straight stairs down from the garage.

I haven't played either game in a while, and the kids rarely play. Haven't played any of the new games so probably would not replace immediately until I figured out what I wanted.

If you wanted a hassle-free transaction as possible, avoid strange dealings and - what are the best practices for selling your game?

Do you list in other places besides Pinside? Don't want to deal with shipping. Ideally, would like the person to see the game in person, play and avoid any buyer remorse / complaint.

I assume clean the games - any suggested additional process beyond normal?

The WCS goalie plastic recently broke - I am planning on just fixing that before listing but didn't know if I should just list it without doing that (it would probably take some time before I got around to acquiring a new one).

Is it better to bring the games up from the basement prior to listing for persons to try / ease removal (and just keep in my garage? I would likely need to pay someone to carry the games up the stairs. I don't want to help anyone who buys the game lift the games up the stairs (just recently recovered from some strained back issues and don't want to reaggravate).

Advice to weed out people who want to show up and then haggle and waste time?

Any advice on setting a price other than using recent transactions on Pinside? Do you list at different prices on different sites?

Any other insight, best practices and guidance from experienced sellers would be appreciated.

Thank you
