Gosh, people sure are overreacting...

The 11/34 isn't the most sought after system so it might be difficult to 
find someone to pick it up or willing pay the shipping.

The parts are probably not very sought after either so it might not be

Also check for rare items, UNIBUS scsi cards perhaps, and put those in 
the item description.

This advice I offer for free with no qualms, good luck to you and your 
business partner.

Kind Regards,
