  5. Sue Van Wyk says:

    My success story as a buyer comes in the shape of four legs and fur decorated with floppy ears a black nose and the gentlest round eyes – he is a lovely brown colour with a snazzy ridge running down his back. After spending weeks browsing Junk Mail looking for just the right Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy we found him. His arrival five years ago sparked a love affair with Rhodesian Ridgebacks resulting in us now having three Rhodesian Ridgebacks who have not only taken over the house and our hearts but also our King Size Bed!

    • Heinrich van den Worm says:

      Hi Sue! This is so nice to hear! Glad we could assist you in finding your puppy love and love for you Rhodesian Ridgebacks! Thanks for your feedback.

  9. Ebrahim Omer says:

    I have a great passion for aquariums and my pet fish. I arrived home one day, to find one of my fish injured and not doing well. I hurriedly seperated him from the rest so as to avoid further damage. I later decided to find another owner who would nurse him, so I placed an ad in the junkmail on a Sunday morning. The first response I received was the very same day and the new owner walked away happily with his new fish and a better home for it. Thank you junkmail

    My daughter had to move into a new build cottage. Pricing for a geyser was way too much! Previously we bought some plumbing materials through my sales consultant, Junk Mail. So we said “Junk Mail” is the way to go! Contacted a place in Silverton, close to where I work. Got the geyser, paid only R700.00 for 150 liter including vacuum breakers, safety valves, etc. Junk Mail – what can I say? You are my building consultant!

    and when I went to view the couches a jack russell
    was sleeping on it.. I asked about the dog and lady
    explained she is also looking for a good home for
    the dog. 2yrs later I have a amazing dog and she still
    sleeps on the very couch I first saw her on 😀

    I AM AN ADVERTISER FOR A SELLER. My story: My Dad approached me and told me he needed to advertise for sale his heavy machinery. Of course, I thought of Junk Mail. I found the site easy to use and posted the advert and photographs without any problems, and soon he had sold some of the tonnes of machinery. Thank you very much. I thought it would be a mammoth task, but it worked out simply and easily. Thank you.

  22. Vanessa vd Merwe says:

    I phoned a lady one day to buy a cot from her, it was really a nice cot and it was advitised for a very nice price but unfortunately she said that she had sold it already, the next day I phoned the same number for the cot but the husband picked up the phone and to my suprise he said no the cot is still available and I asked if I could come and buy it and he said no I can get it for free because he wouldn’t sell it cause it was standing outside and the draw panel broke but I got somebody to fix it for me, JUNKMAIL IS INCREDIBLE, YIPPEEEEE.

    Had a car accident nd I needed another same model car to replace my own, I posted on junk mail and within days I got it for a reasonable price! Thanks to junk mail

  25. Rebecca Lewis says:

    When i turned 18 and wanted to start driving and becoming independent, my parents knew the only place we would have to look was on Junkmail because you are sure to find anything you are looking for! At first we were just looking for a cheap car for me to practise in and we found a cute little opel kadette that was in good condition and a very good price! After about 2 years my dad wanted to sell the Opel to buy me something more long term and easy to drive so we advertised the bright yellow opel and almost immediatly had a buyer! The search for a permanent car took a while because there were sooo many options and i couldnt decide which car i liked best! Eventually we found the perfect car, in great condition and just what my parents wanted for me all along, suiting my style and their pockets! Junkmail has always been the place to buy and sell any item and I have had success every time. I would recommend Junkmail to ANYONE wanting to buy or sell ANYTHING, i know from experience that many, many, many other people use Junkmail and may be looking for just what you are selling.

    I am a female and i bough mining equipment on a tender basis with 2 male partners (1 on them was my fiance)they wanted to cut equipment up for scrap metal and begged them to give me 1 week to see if i could get a buyer, they said ok I placed a advert in junk mail and the 2nd last day of my week i received a call from Turkey (they landed in SA 4 days later and bought all the equipment) My partners was shoched and stunned for i knew i could rely on Junk Mail

  27. Deline Gardiner says:

    I decided it was time I find myself an affordable, new (pre-loved), car. My first thought was to browse through Junkmail, the paper where you can be sure to find what you need. Though I only had a certain amount of money available, I was still hoping to find something nice. But my greatest expectations was exceeded when I saw the pic of this neat and very ‘smart’ Smart Forfour Passion, and to my surprise, ALMOST affordable to me! I called the seller, and without even actually seeing the Smart, I started negotiating and whalla!! That evening I felt very smart as I drove away in my new, very smart Smart ForFour. Thank you, Junkmail for helping me to find my dream car at an affordable price!

  28. PHILIP says:

    Hi, one Saturday morning I decided to sell my motorbike (been thinking of it a lot!) The same day I got a call from a guy living 2km from my house. The next day I took my bike to him for a test drive and it was sold! A week later it was registered on his name. Junkmail is the best thing since sliced bread came out! Thanks a lot

  29. Junk Mail is the best it made my dream cum true when this day I bought a junk mail ad’s paper & for years I have being looking for a Honda Balled 160i civic until I found it on the junk mail ad’s paper I started contacting the owner we started making arrangement for me to come & to his crib to see the Car it was in a very good condition & the price was good too so Junk Mail is the best I would like too Think the Team behind the Junk Mail ad’s paper you are doing a good job

  32. Tristan Bateman says:

    Hey there, Whilst browsing through my e-mail, I saw this Junk Mail ad for a competition. When I saw it was asking for success stories, I couldn’t believe it. A few months back I was advertising some CD’s for Sale on Junk Mail. I was asking 450 for my collection, but when the person arrived, he only had R600 in R200 notes. And I had no change. So he gave me R600 as he said that he thought that even at R600 it was a bargain. We started chatting about music, and found we had really similar tastes. The whole time we were talking I was thinking he looked very familiar. When I asked his name, it turned out he was in my primary school, and we were in the same grade 2 class together. We have become good friends again, and have had some really good times together. SO I received more than I asked for… In more ways than one… All thanks to Junk Mail. Thx for providing such an excellent service.

    Buyer Success Story: It was on Sunday when I met Junk mail thinking that it was a Job Mail. I was even shock with the name “JUNK”. when I got home I browsed through my edition of my Junk mail and I found a my “TATA Telcolime Bakkie 2005 model at the very reasonable price waiting for me”. It is an honour to mentioned that now I am a subscriber and a proudly Junk mailer. Junk mail staff(Peter Aphiri- PTA) are so friendly and professional. I am looking forward that even Eastern Cape particularly East London may have our Eastern Cape Edition.

    My husband purchased a beautiful doberman off an ad on junk mail. I was not happy as we already had two dogs at home. Nevertheless we named her Clowie and grew to love her. She is a life saver , literally as she jumped into the pool after my two year old fell in and dragged her to safety. If it wasnt for junk mail I dread to think what might have happened. Thank you junk mail for giving us Clowie

    My wife got a new Samsung S2 on the Friday at around 18h00. I sat and played with it and at around 20h00 i decided i also want one. I went to Junkmail and searched for items to swop and found someone who wanted to swop his Samsung S2 for a Blackberry. We negotiated and the next morning i met him and we did the swop. It is not the first time i have swopped my cell phone for one i wanted and have always been successful in finding someone to swop with on Junkmail. Never found anyone on Gumtree…LOL

  37. Paula says:

    Dear Junk –Mail, and all readers.

    Last year I received a promotion in my company, as well as a transfer to a branch in another country. One of the hardest parts of the whole thing was that I was not allowed to take any pets with as I would have to stay in hotels mostly. And I had 3 adorable cats which I couldn’t possibly part with unless I knew they would go to a good home.

    So I asked all my friends and family if they could look after them, but everyone either had dogs, was allergic to cats, or were not allowed cats in their complex.

    So I advertised them on Junk Mail, free to a good home, and I found someone who would love my cats as much as I do.

    So thank you Junk Mail. You saved my career, as I would not have taken the promotion if I had not found a good home for my cats.

    I really appreciate this service you provide.

    Thanks so much.

    Buyer Success Story:

    Dear Junk Mail.

    I am writing to express my gratitude for the service you provide.

    A few months ago my 7 year old son wanted to get a piano. He has been taking lessons for 2 years and is doing really well. I have just never been able to afford a piano, and didn’t even try looking. My wife suggested we look in Junk-Mail, which we did. But even then, everything seemed way out or our price bracket.

    My wife suggested we go take a look at a few, just to get a feel for what our son likes, and also to get an idea of what we are paying for.

    We made a few phone calls, and set up some appointments. The very first people we visited was a retired couple, who were fairly well off. They took an instant liking to my son, and when they heard him play they were really touched. We were about to leave, an explained we were going to see some other offers, as this was actually well out of our league. The man took his wife into the kitchen, and after 5 minutes, came out and said they would be willing to accept R10,000. I nearly fell over, as they were originally asking R30,000. I also knew that it was worth way more than that.

    So now my son has a beautiful Yamaha piano, our house is filled with the sound of him playing, and my bank account is still in tact.

    Thank you Junk Mail.

    BUYER (Success Story):

    Hi there.

    May dad was involved in a car accident awhile back, and his car was written off. He wanted to buy a brand new car, but I insisted we look on Junk Mail first.

    He was specifically wanting an Audi. We found someone selling an Audi A4, with Low Mileage and in immaculate condition. They were asking R80,000, so we offered R65,000. The offer was rejected and the person said he couldn’t possibly sell it for so low.

    So we left, and carried on hunting for other deals on Junk Mail. Just over a month went by, when I received a call. It was from the Audi owner, saying he’d accept my offer of R65,000 if I was still keen.

    I couldn’t believe it. And what a good deal that was.

    My father is really happy with the car, and has had no problems since buying it. All thanks to Junk Mail. And I would highly recommend to anyone out there, who’s interested in buying a car, to look on Junk Mail first.

    Thx. Rich.

  41. Kik's says:

    Hi There,

    There is a young man named Benjamin, who has been helping us with gardening and general home maintenance around my house for the past year or so. He has had to travel for over an hour in taxi’s and on the train to get to my house each day. And then make the same trip back home. Not only was this time consuming and stressful for him, but was costing him an arm and a leg. So my husband suggested buying a Wendy House, kitting it out, and letting him sleep over from Monday to Friday, or whenever he feels like, and then he can go home on weekends. Benjamin liked the idea. So we went Wendy House shopping only to get the shock of our lives as to how much they cost. We then looked on Junk Mail, and found a family who were leaving SA and urgently needed to sell their Wendy House. It was only a couple years old, and hardly used, and well under half the price of what they were going for new. Plus they had it delivered to our house as they had a construction materials delivery truck.

    So on one Saturday, my husband and Benjamin put in a ceiling, insulation, dry walling, curtains and carpeting. So with a bit TLC and a coat of paint, the Wendy House is now a really nice garden flat for Benjamin. And he loves it. He actually spends most weekends with us now. And because it’s almost his home, he is more happy to help with things in the garden without us even having to ask. And if we go away, he’s there to take care of things and feed the dogs. What a pleasure.

    Thank you so much Junk Mail. From us and Benjamin too 

    Thanks.

    Hello all, I’m A Junk Mail Buyer: I am currently undergoing extensive renovations at my house. One month into the renovation we were broken into while we were out, and were basically cleaned out. We got a few security companies to come quote on installing perimeter beams, but they were all very expensive. In excess of 15k. And I’m on a tight budget with all the building, so I thought I’d just check junk mail to see what was available. I managed to find someone who was moving to an apartment, and was selling their second hand outdoor beams plus alarm system for just 3k. I phoned up a friend of mine was an electrician, and he came and installed them for next nothing. And it works like a dream I tell you. One button arms the whole property. Must say, I’m feeling a lot safer when I’m at home now, and have peace of mind when I go away.

    The bottom line… Junk Mail is the best. I’ve used junk mail whenever I’ve been in need of just about anything, and I’ve yet to be disappointed.

    Thank you. Pearl.

    Buyer success story.

    Good day Junk Mail,

    I received an e-mail with bargains being offered from Junk Mail. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, but noticed someone advertising a pair of brand new D&G sunglasses. This was the exact pair (At least very similar to) a pair of sunglasses my wife was looking for. Our 20th wedding anniversary was coming up so I thought hey!!! That’d make a great gift. I gave the person a call an asked how much the wanted as no price was listed. They said I should make an offer. I didn’t know what to offer, so they asked if I would I be happy to pay R600? … Happy? Of course I was happy. I knew these glasses were over R3000 in the shops. So I went straight there, and bought them. They were still sealed in their original box. Needless to say they made a great gift, my wife LOVES them and she has no Idea how cheap they were. Which is good as she’s taking extra special care of them since she thinks they cost me the earth.

    Thank you Junk Mail.

    Ta

    Hi there, I found myself a Valiant on junkmail for an unbelievable price. It only needed a carberrator, but i only had R800 left. I could not find one in Gauteng or its surrounding areas, and finally found one in cape town for R350.

    Heya

    I’m a volunteer worker, and give a lot of my time to a non-profit organization, providing disaster relief for many countries in Africa… I’ve been looking for a car for a while, but have not been able to afford anything decent. I looked on Junk Mail, and found a Jetta 3, 1994 model going for R30,000. Even though it was a bit expensive for me, I gave it a go. I went to look at it. I liked it, but was a little hesitant, and not keen as I knew I couldn’t afford it, and I hate trying to bargain someone down. So I told the guy I’d think about it and let him know if I could make a plan to come up with the cash. When the man found out what I did and how strapped for cash I was, he said he was planning on trading it in on a new VW anyway, and that he was only getting 15 on the trade in, but thought he’d try his luck on Junk Mail first… So he said if I give him 16 he’ll take it. I couldn’t believe it. I felt like my prayers had been answered. Though I know that Junk Mail also had a hand in things. SO I would like to take this opportunity to thank junk mail for the service they provide. If it wasn’t for them, I’d still be cycling everywhere.

    Regards – Enrico (BUYER)

    Helllooo Junk Mail.

    This is my buyer success story. With the emphasis on SUCCESS. It was a HUGE SUCCESS. I started a fashion design course last year after matriculating. Part of the course was actual sewing, and I needed a sewing machine. I thought I’d check to see if I could find anything on Junk Mail before forking out tons of cash on something new. I found what I was looking for, made the call and discovered that the person stayed just around the corner from me. To my surprise she was one of the top fashion designers in SA. She asked if she could see some of my work. So I came back that afternoon with some of the dresses, jackets and hand-bags I had made and she was very impressed. She offered me a year’s free training in one of her design classes, with the option of working for her once I was finished. I jumped at the opportunity. After doing just 6months of classes this year, I started working for her. I’ve also had the privilege of conducting some of her design classes. I have also won 2 of the design competitions she has entered me in. And the sewing machine I bought is running like a dream, and worth its weight in gold.

    Thank you OH SO much Junk Mail. I could never have dreamed of having a career like this.

    Good Morning

    I would firstly like to thank Junk Mail for the work they do, and service they provide.

    In 2005 I was looking in Junk Mail for a property to invest in, and also to use as a holiday house. I found someone who was selling a house in Port Alfred. It had magnificent sea views, and was very near to shops etc. I got it for a very good price as the family who stayed there urgently needed to move to JHB. So it was a great investment financially. It has also been a great holiday house for our family to go to, and has brought in good income from holiday makers renting it.

    The reason why this is a success story, is that my parents retired last year… So we had the perfect place for them. And they love the coast, even they had spent most of their lives in Pretoria. They are now settled down in beautiful area, which is safe and comfortable to stay. We also get to visit them in our favourite holiday destination. We now go down at least twice a year visit, and enjoy the place as well.

    All thanks goes to Junk Mail. Great Job guys 🙂

    Thx – Mark
