Gantu,

Your message is hard to understand.

Do you want a person living in Dorset to pick up and store a submarine which you have won on ebay, until you come to this country to collect it?

Hi Gantu I have asked White Ensign [Jorg] to get in touch with you to see if we can get a better idea of what you want.

Your english is better than my german.

There is no need to post a name. The post code is enough to give a position

I believe Gantu wants to know if anyone in the area could contact the seller of the submarine he has won on Ebay as he can't send the money to pay for it until he knows what the shipping costs are. The seller has obviously not included P & P to Germany in the listing.
Gantu - what was the item number on Ebay? We might recognise the seller from his account name.

Surely it would be a simple matter to contact the seller through ebay? There is a specific standard message to send to ask what the shipping costs are - there is no reason to ask someone else to do it..

That's why I thought Gantu wanted to have someone in this country receive the item. However, if we have a German speaker then the obvious thing to do is to send a personal message in German to Gantu. If no one else can do it I can get my sister-in-law to do it - she has a German boyfriend and speaks the lingo...

Does the seller not reply to you?

(Ist der Verkäufer nicht antworten Sie?)

Gantu, if he won't ship to Germany, he can ship it to me and I'll forward it on to you. About time he sorted this out, very poor show from that seller.

Maybe he is saying that he is working out of this country?

If the seller did not advertise that he would ship internationally, then he cannot be made to, and he would be within his rights to stop the sale.

If Subculture offers to accept the sub in the UK, then there is no reason for the seller not to proceed, and Ebay can be asked to assist if necessary.

May be the seller means he is working away from home at the moment an cant get a postage quote? Looking as his feedback he was selling regularly til the end of October and has taken a break. Maybe Gauntu you can forward the corespondence to Subculture or myself and we make make better sense of what he means.
Postage to Germany would be about £20 via DHL or similar through a parcel consolidator like Parcels2Go or Interparcel.
