May I please just take this opportunity to warn other eBay buyers not to trust the distance to seller information eBay supplies.
After choosing a seller based on price and distance (collection only) I made my purchase. To my surprise after checking the distance myself on many many different route finders it appeared that eBay's listed distance was over 20% inaccurate which in my case meant near 65 miles wrong (130 miles there and back). Strangely the seller listed address was correct on eBay it was just the system eBay uses to calculate the distance. After several months of contact with eBay to refund the extra travel costs I was informed it was not their responsibility to give accurate distance to seller information.
So be very careful, don't relying on information provided from eBay.
