Hello,



I am in dire need of a relay shipper inside the UK. I am thinking it can be shipped to a UK address and then to me for less than the stated price in the auction. Would any one in the Uk be willing to help me out?



If I am wrong on this please let me know.

On a similar note, maybe some sort of Acaeum shipping network could be worked out. There are many US only auctions that sometimes interest me, and there are also those occassional items where you'd just like something checked out without waiting for it to cross the Atlantic.

I run a business from home, so I'm in an ideal position to receive and relay packages to the US, and I'm sure there are others at this end who would, or already do, do this.

It might be worth trying to co-ordinate something. Nothing formal, but something with a little more structure for those who occasionally need something.

And we don't need to keep it to FRPs. If Bob the Builder is what you need for that extra special Xmas present, I'm sure someone here could sort it out.

Can't you just sense Foul getting ready to blast this thread to pieces?

+++++

Back on topic: An Acaeum "shipping consortium" is a pretty good idea. We're still a small enough community that many of us have gotten to know and trust other users from both sides of the pond. I hope this concept takes off.

Have you tired asking the seller for a sensible delivery method?

They can send it by Airmail, with the "Internaional Signed For" option, which will completely cover their ass and cost about £8.00

I am always available for shipping help.

I have tons of global priority mail supplies on hand. If you want regular shipping, I can do that, too, but I generally do not have much in the way of packaging supplies on hand.

I really wanted to bid on those character sheets, too. I just got in with five minutes left and was turned off by the shipping to the U.S.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

well i already mentioned thi to marl privately. i will still sort it for him if he wants to - not a prob at all, but i think he should point it out to the seller as his shipping charge is utterly ridiculous and its being done this way because of that.

kinda stupid really as the seller would have prb had a lot more bids if the rate was more sensible.
