Anyone in the US able to help me with shipping a small item?

Anyone in the US able to help me with shipping a small item to the UK? Shipping and GSP are adding about 50% to the price I’ve had a couple of friends who have helped in the past but I always hate to ask and put people on the spot as you never know when it’s a bad time or a hassle. I’d be happy to r...

Those cards are stunning condition. Hope you got a decent price for them because they're worth quite a bit!

Re: Vectis shipping costs

Jo, thanks for your response on this. The problem is firstly that the minimum charge (particularly for small items like loose figures) is too high. I was charged more than twice the cost of shipping by Royal Mail. The result is that it’s not worth bidding on single small items such as loose figures....

Re: Vectis shipping costs

I've not had a shipping invoice yet, last time it was £10 I think for 1 MOC and was very well packed. Their fees are eye watering though. :shock: Yeah £10 on a MOC is ok, but on a loose figure it’s crazy. If you charge more than £5 postage for a loose figure on eBay you’d be accused of price gougin...

Re: Esb 45b card back with trilogo bubble

I believe the ESB 45b Palitoy, Clipper and German GM were all carded at the Palitoy factory. No reason why left over card back stock for any of them couldn't have been used later on and Tri Logo bubbles added. But these are the first examples I've come across.

Re: Esb 45b card back with trilogo bubble

I saw this on facebook and commented. Very cool find. I've never seen a carded 45b with the Tri Logo bubble. So it sounds like left over card stock being used up later on.

Vectis shipping costs

I mentioned this as a comment in another thread but was keen to get others thoughts and experiences. On the last Vectis auction I lucked out on a number of items I was after due to either bad timing with work and a couple of instances where bids froze. I ended up with just a single loose figure for ...
