Brexit and postage

Postby spudski » 26 May 2017, 07:35

Had a funny response today from Holland. Not ebay...but a private sale.

I was in the process of negotiating for the attached boxset.

We got down to postage costs. Google translated from Dutch...

'Hi I have it checked, but can no longer be sent to engelend or UK with kiala because it no longer at the European Union, first though not now, have looked to post.nl your country is not on the list. sorry but this is not gonna work I now know no longer if there are any pakkjes are sent from the Netherlands I also do not know how it goes maybe itself another option?'

So it seems parcels according to this lady are no longer being sent to 'Engerland' because we have left the European Union...lol WTF! :lol!:

Funny that...as I have another boxset and some Statuettes coming in from Holland, all under 2 kilos for 14.98 Euros... :Doh:

Seems some of our European friends have not taken to well to us leaving lol

Anyone else had any problems similar to this?

On a side note...what's the value to this set? I have no idea. Seemed cheap at 30 Euros.

Tbh...I get the feeling she doesn't really want to post it anywhere. She would rather have someone collect or meet locally it seems. Will see what she says though, and point out to her that others are sending me Subbuteo items from Holland no problem. Another problem is that she doesn't have paypal and will only do IBAN...which costs another £9.80 my end for International transfer. So with Postage and IBAN you are looking closer to £60.

What do you reckon they are worth Mark?

Vriesland...on the outskirts of Rotterdam. Don't worry though...I've found another in better condition and with extra teams and only 10 Euro more, so I'm going to go for that instead. Thanks for the offer though.

Odd one, UK is on the list:

https://www.postnl.nl/tarieven/tarieven ... country=gb

15€, by the looks of things signed for 9.31€ otherwise, plus most "post" places over there sell boxes too, she just needs to write a label out!
As you say she sounds like she doesn't want to send it anywhere.

That set isn't overly rare over there, 30€ is about right.
Current spares: Brescia x2 light blue inner, white outer, PMs please if you can help.

Same place as where I found the other one Pete. I've had the Statuettes ( he had more than those advertised, and the other boxset LW advertised. ) All tracked and signed for under 15 Euros if under 2 kilos. She just didn't want the hassle of sending abroad I think...plus no paypal. :Doh:

You're right about it not being overly rare in Holland...it's just the hassle of getting it here.

The same goes for Borras stuff in Spain...rare here, but loads available in Spain it seems.
