  • Take someone with you or offer to meet her somewhere within walking distance (public place - park, grocery store, etc.)

  • My opinion is this: She should meet you somewhere in a public location where there is alot of people around. Yes, bring someone with you anyway. You should never go to someone's house or let someone come to yours. This should all take place in a very public, safe location.

  • I wouldn't go to her house at all. I would offer to meet in a public place and if you can take your husband or SO with you. I have sold a few things on craigslist and I always have hubby home when they come to pick the stuff up.

  • On a different note: You have to wonder if she will offer to meet you somewhere. You are definately right about your question. I just don't trust Craigslist. Never have.

  • Just drop it off. Do it during day light hours, take a friend or better yet your husband/bf. Don't go in the house or garage. Have her meet you in the drive way. No different than going to a yard sale.
