How long should I keep the bed for them?

I recently bought my son a new toddler bed and I didn't need the old one anymore so I put it on craigslist in the "free" section. Then my husband's sister tells me she would like the bed for her daughter so I took the ad down. That was about a week ago and she and her boyfriend have made no effort to come get the bed.I have mentioned it twice and they said that they would "pick it up today" but then they didn't. I live in an apartment and I can't store this bed for them forever. I would just take it to their house except I don't have a car. How long should I give them before giving the bed to someone else?

  • Tell them when you're getting rid of it and if they don't get it than put the add back up.

  • Tell them that you are going to put the ad up tomorrow if they haven't picked it up.

  • I would put it outside your apartment and call and tell them they better come get it before someone else picks it up. I bet they come over within 30 minutes.

  • I agree with everyone else. Call them and tell them you don't have room for the bed and that if they don't come get it you are either putting it outside for anyone to take, or are putting it back on craigslist.

  • put the bed on the sidewalk with a free sign on it or call a goodwill store to pick it up. your sister had her chance to get the bed. ask around someone else need a bed.
