    Default ebay rant

    went to buy IPA for wiping down my car after a polish from a seller in Manchester,checked he 'delivered' to N.I.......made the purchase,got this message today

    Hello,

    Thank you for your order. Unfortunately our couriers class your location as "Remote" and this means that a surcharge will apply for delivery. If you wish to proceed with this order, please send £8.01 via PayPal to finance @ readyreagents.com (without spaces). Please referance your Ebay username.

    Alternatively if you would prefer to cancel please contact us, we will arrange a refund.

    Please accept our apologies for this inconvenience, this charge is out of our control.


    this is my reply

    Dear apcpure,

    Hi Jon,can i have the name of the courier you use for delivery? i find it very hard to believe that my location/address is how you put it 'remote' i live 1 mile from 1 of only 4 major hospitals in N Ireland,less than 10 miles from the centre of Belfast (our capital city) 6 miles from the International Airport,it doesnt cost me 'extra' to post any item to England,Scotland or Wales with royal mail or any national/international courier but it dosent seem to be this way for posting to N.Ireland from England,Scotland or Wales.this is the lastest 'excuse'......"too remote" to add to the list which includes Royal mail dont deliver to n.ireland as it doesnt cross water..............strange they have been delivering my mail for all of my 42 years i have been on this planet,or "its because you live on an island" (you have to laugh at that one) as the last time i looked england/scotland/wales is all surrounded by water

    so to the point you can just issue me with a refund thankyou very much

    kind regards Nigel

    i wonder if a geography lesson would do them any good

    Tbh it sounds much the same as what they do to people living in the Scottish highlands. I've heard of people as low down in Perth being charged a surcharge
