Just read a guide to buying suspension on ebay and while it is mostly very helpful, there is one point that I take exception to. The writer states that suspension p&p costs should be no more than £9 or £10 and any higher than this is the seller trying to avoid ebay fees by overcharging on postage. This is wrong. As a private individual selling a heavy item like a full suspension kit, the only way I can get a 25kg parcel delivered is through Parcelforce and if it goes over 30kg, even Parcelforce won't take it. Just as an example, Parcelforce are charging me £48 for UK two-day delivery, including full insurance.To Europe, it takes 3 days and over £100. To the US, £180. So please bear this in mind - a private seller is not necessarily trying to rip you off if the postage seems high. They simply do not have the business volume or the account facilities to access cheap UK couriers for heavy or palleted goods like garages and scrapyards can. If in doubt, ask the seller how much the item weighs and see if you can get it delivered cheaper.
