Ring / Steve,

I used a courier firm to ship a tractor, flail mower, plough, trailer and other accessories from northern Scotland to my home in Wales. It was cheaper than me driving 350 miles each way and spending a night somewhere, and I could use my time more valuably as well. There are a number of firms on eBay that will do this, so prices are competitive, even if you may have to wait until they are going close to where your goods need to be collected from and also wait until they are coming close to where you want the goods delivered. My total waiting time was only just over a week which I thought was very good.

Mike.

Simple... it's called 'Sod's Law' (hammer) (hammer). I've accepted it as the 'norm'.

There are a number of firms offering carrier services now especially for eBay sellers. I use payperparcel.co.uk and they send DHL. They've never let me down.

Some people will make a profit by buying locally from someone who can't be bothered to send an item (hence it doesn't fetch a good price) and then flip it because they send it anywhere hence their market becomes the whole country

regards

Brian
