With delivery charges like that, they're obviously not looking for too much business...

Outside England and Wales seems to be missing from your post.

Neil i think you will find that Mike is refering to the Scottish delivery charges (zone C) which at £17 for orders under £75 or £12.50 for orders over £75.00, is extorsion, especially when you think that there are many companies that do not charge any extra at all.

Regards

Yes, I knew that, but I was trying to clarify it for others.

Up the proverbial creek
Well I dunno. £6.50 (+ VAT) under £75 (+ VAT) seems pretty discouraging too... :-k As for charging more for Scotland, that's unbelievable. The Highlands and Islands mebbe, but the rest? What are they using - the Pony Express? Afraid the Clans will ambush the stage coach? :roll:

Same here, Axminster only a couple or three days max usually, sometimes even next day if I'm lucky and no extra charge. Xpress appear to be as bad as Rutlands with shipping charges.
No disrepect on your original post Neil.

Noel, apparently off shore on another continent....

No problem.

I was just trying to give a heads-up to everyone outside God's own country and England.

Can anybody explain the wildly varying postage costs the moment you mention "Northern Ireland"? CPC, bless'em, are free postage over £30 AND next day delivery unless you order several cwt (pre-decimal weight) of metal.
One yahoo, who shall remain nameless, calmly told me I was "outside the scope of surface mail"!!!!!!! Another added £15 to an existing p&p £17.50 to send my son's iPod, as he "had to employ two carriers".
This, when I live 1/4 mile from where the Navy has their missiles manufactured......I wonder was postage a major factor when the MoD costed that one?
Any excuse to palm a buck eh? All you browsing in the Highlands and Islands could no doubt tell a similar story, but the last time I drove to Achmelvick, Torridon and Ullapool, the roads were good and damn near traffic free. Soooo, come on all you shysters, if CPC CAN DO IT AND IN STYLE, WHY CAN'T YOU?

Neil :roll: If you read my post again i am sure you will see that i too was trying to clarify it for others, this is why i also stated the charges. Which i will say once again is down right extorsion.
As others have said there are companies that do not charge any extra yet they often manage to give and meet a next day delivery.

with delivery charges like that I'd reckon the ponies to be bought n paid for as part of the sale... sheesh...

for the record, what Mike's sayin is that any company chargin delivery prices like that is one I wouldn't do business with, much less endorse...

<who's just been quoted free delivery on a sub £30 sale with next business day delivery... from Essex of all places..>

see what can be done when ya put yer mind to it..??????

Mike, living not far from you i have to say that free pxp on a sub £30 purchase all the way from essex is not bad at all.
