On Weekdays, after 10am, before 1pm.

Where will you leave your car when you retrieve the stroller?

I hope it is a significant savings over New.

I won't drive from Staten Island to Manhattan for a Craigslist item, let alone all the way from Freehold.

Can the seller drop it at a UPS store, have them pack it and ship it to you? That would be a lot less trouble. If I'm not mistaken, UPS will do it all for you.

Agreed, just ship it. Otherwise, if you have to come in during the week, between 10 am and 1 pm would work.

You can;t park on the street - so unless the person will run out of the building with the stroller and stuff it in your car you will have to pay for parking. When you add that ($25?) onto the cost of tolls ($25?) and gas, never mind your time, what are you really saving? IMHO not worth it unless it's really free.

Can you bring someone with you who can go in and pick it up while you drive around the block?
