Is that different to the normal German eBay? Mind you, I think that on any Internet auction site, it's a matter of "You pays your money and you takes your chance"!

OK. Which company services can I use to check the package before buying?

I don't know of any! You either trust your own judgement or you don't buy. Strangely enough, most people aren't out to rob you, and just want to sell stuff they no longer need.

ask many questions and if the seller answers dishonestly you can get a refund  eventually !  or go to a reputable dealer and pay a bit more for
 peace of mind  and try before you buy plus after sale service

It's a classified ads site. Similar to Gumtree.

I'm playing all the wrong notes but not necessarily in the wrong order.

If it’s part of ebay and has the same buyer protection then ok.  If it’s like Gumtree then don’t buy unless you can meet in person.  I was nearly scammed on Gumtree this month.

And I always assume that anything I buy on eBay will need extensive work before it is playable,  even if it seller says otherwise.  The only exception would be if I know the seller.

No buyer protection unless you pay via paypal. IMO most sellers have no knowledge about their instruments, so meeting in person and trying out the instrument is essential.
