Mdina bottle on ebay
« on: September 30, 2010, 08:46:54 PM »
Just listed an early Mdina bottle on ebay, they don't appear every day so I'm giving it this extra nudge: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160487587863&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT

I chose the name because it made me ;D too. The river Taff is a couple of hundred yards away, twice in the past fifty years it has flooded the ground floor and cellars here. :cry:

The cost of postage for the bottle is high, the packaging weighs almost twice as much as the bottle and it all weighs over 3kg. It's a big box and there is loads and loads of bubble.... Postage to Australia would be, sit down for this, eighty quid, same for New Zealand.

 :cry: Many thanks John- O.K. I can breathe easy- the bottle is not for me- the postage is even worse than from here (Aust) to New Zealand. Many thanks Carol

Hello John

Phew that seems to be very expensive. This service may be cheaper

No it's almost twice as expensive, £156.39 for 4 day delivery and £130.69 for 9 day delivery. :o :thud:

I could pack it so that bottle and packaging weigh less than 2kg, then the postage cost to Australia and elsewhere would be around a third of the cost. The thing is, I want it to arrive in one piece.

This site is usually competitive for international deliveries over 2kg: http://www.parcel2go.com/

Cheers,
John

Thanks Roy, funnily enough that is the other site I have bookmarked and sometimes use, for Australia they are a little cheaper.  :)
