Post and packing is just that its not just the postage stamp you are paying for

You must take into consideration all the handling costs and packing costs that are assosciated with the price you see for P&P....

Do parcels magic their way to the Post Offiice?

The Post Office I Use is over 7 miles away so thats a 14 mile round trip each time I need to post my customers parcels ... and giving the rising cost of Petrol & Diesel these days i have to take all that into account.

Then there is the packaging to take into consideration

Plastic mail sacks/Brown Paper/Bubble Wrap/Labels/Marker Pens/Tissue Paper/Compliment Slips printing ink ... it all adds up

Boxes .. Ok so you think youve been ripped off and paid too much P&P bacause a box has been re-used ... someone had to take a trip to the local supermarket to get the box in the first place ....


If you find someone that is listing a brand New nintendo wii  for example with a Buy it Now of 99p but with Postage costs of £600 you know that they are trying to evade paying the correct Final Value fees for the sale to Ebay by compensating with high P&P. This is against Ebay rules and my advise is to report the seller to Ebay 

I do Not disgusise my Postage & Handling costs ... they are in print for you to see .. If you dont agree with my Postage Costs dont Bid ... Simple!

sorry but i charge 2.99 to 4.99 per parcel argos charge 6.99 for 1 item
