I listed a huge pack of open university books (a full course). 7 text books altogether...didn't expect it to sell but it did so how on earth do I send them?

Will it be too heavy for royal mail? how do I package them etc?

Isn't there a courier that charges £5.99 or similar to deliver? I'm sure I've seen something like that talked about on here.

shock I charged her £15 for delivery! if anyone knows of such a courier I'd be grateful... (and obviously refund the difference)

i wouldn't bother refunding the difference but then i have no morals. she won't know it only cost you £6.50. i use parcel tree they use dhl. if you went direct using dhl it probably would cost about £15 anyway.

It's postage and packaging though, not just postage and they were obviously prepared to pay it to bid on it.

DHL have just whacked up all their prices so £15 won't be far off!!

I use these guys comes to about £11 once they add VAT - that's for a 48 hour delivery but everytime I've used them it's been delivered next day grin

MrsMagooo, I've just ordered from the website you mentioned. Are their sizes in CMs? I hope so blush

I asked them to collect it tomorow, will they do that? I paid via paypal, came to £11.

MrsMagooo Fri 12-Sep-08 13:54:03

Yup sizes are in CMs

They don't collect on Saturdays though hun - will be Monday now.

In future though you can book before 10am for same day collection.

Thanks MrsMagooo, will they automatically change it to Monday?

I've had to email the buyer and apologise for the delay...they bought them on Monday and they havn't even left my house yet blush I really should have thought this through before listing them.

They should do hun yeah - just drop them an email to confirm, they're usually pretty quick at replying
