View Full Version : No extra charge for Highlands

30-Aug-10, 16:58
I have just ordered from Wilkinsons http://www.wilkinsonplus.com/ and phoned to check delivery charge as they state the usual extra for Highlands but was told they no longer charge extra :) . Worth knowing for that at least (I know nothing else about them but look good).

One rip off place for delivery is www.ebuyer.com. Before buying I always check their ebay shop to see if they have the item in stock. The link is http://shop.ebay.co.uk/ebuyerexpress/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p4340.

There are quite a few compaines that have ebay shops like Buy.com, Argos etc. They have to set their postage to a certain price. So if you buy through ebay they cant rip you off for living in the highlands.

Example: I bought this from ebuyer ebay shop and got FREE shipping

Ebuyer online shop is 10 dearer AND charges me with 10.58 postage

So before buying anything always check to see if the company has an ebay shop.

I have bought on-line from them before and been charged standard delivery :-) just placed another order this week too.

I like Wilkinsons, a great shop with excellent prices. Definate thumbs up from me.

These companies are out there it just means a lot of small print reading. I could see the point if we were on one of the islands but getting someone to realise we are on the mainland is like hitting your head against a brick wall!

I spent ages trying to find packaging i liked, spent hours trawling the internet until i finally found some i was happy with. For some reason in a little paragraph at the bottom of the page it stated they didn't deliver to the highlands. Asked them why, still waiting on a reply!

What makes me MAD is when the advert states " Free delivery to UK mainland" and then goes on to say that delivery to highlands of Scotland are extra...HELLO...there isn't a moat just above Perth :rolleyes:
