Traplet postage prices
« on: March 15, 2011, 08:50:35 am »

Can anyone work out from this page http://shop.traplet.com/about/info.aspx
the cost of posting a plan to the UK?

As far as I can see it could be anything from 2.95 to 9.95 :((

No, mate - but there's nothing that Traplet do that can surprise me these days. After a whole series of cock-ups* we finally stopped placing feature ads when their credit controller rang up chasing non-payment for an advert that wasn't due to be published for a year. Someone had input the whole year's ad orders incorrectly and the CC hadn't the wit to tell the difference between an order number and an invoice............and she was really  nasty until I pointed out her error.
And then  there was the incident of them publishing the wrong ad entirely...............for a P97 audio amplifier...........in the Submarine Special.
Oyveh.

There Must be an error here somewhere 9.95 to send a plan  only costs 8.22 for up to 4KG parcel 1st class ?.  Also $10.00 US works out at roughly 6.45  so according to this its cheaper to have it shipped to the US..??

Traplet have a distrubution office in the US to handle North and South American orders. So I guess, the US Postal Service charges less than Royal Mail.

At the bottom of the page where it says "parts and accessories" it shouldread "plans and accessories"

Thanks guys I didn't fancy paying 9.95 to post a plan costing 14 {-)

I'm not sure if I will order the plan, but more likely to now.

At the bottom of the page where it says "parts and accessories" it shouldread "plans and accessories" - but this doesn't explain the explicit entry which under a heading "Plans" it has postage 9.95 as Roadrunner quoted.

As I said - pretty confusing :-)) If I decide to order I will obviously phone them to confirm.
