Wanted: Argos Haiti Chrome Table Lamp

banned6y, 9m agoPosted 6 years, 9 months agoFeedback:1 Positive/0 Neutral/0 Negative
I originally bought three of these online, but after I made the order, Argos informed me that they could only provide two, and there were no more in stock. They look great with the rest of my furniture - I have two on my bedside tables, and wanted the third for the lounge - but the item hasn't come back into stock yet - 2 weeks later :(.

Argos are unable to tell me if/when they'll get any more either, and i'm worried they simply won't get any more in.

So this is basically a request for either of the following:

a) Someone has one (new or used, as long as in good condition) which they would be willing to sell. I would be willing to pay a little extra for your trouble.

b) If it is in stock at your local store, then I would be willing to pay someone a little extra to go get it, and send to me (at my expense, of course).

I live in the Reading area, and have scoured local stores online, but none have stock.

The link to the item is here:

http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?storeId=10001&catalogId=1500002201&langId=-1&searchTerms=HAITI+LAMP

Catalogue number: 002/6675

I just really want another one of these lamps! :)

Thanks for all your effort everyone :).

Oxford one is promising though! Don't have a car at the moment but the girlfriend is at Uni in Birmingham so may be able to pop in there on the way :p.
#13
Out of stock at all Hull stores. Good luck, looks like a nice lamp.

I've got one near me... but would need you to confirm before I go and get it...? :thinking:

If you put in town = Lowestoft, you will see that there is 1 in stock at Lowestoft North Quay Retail Park.

Not sure how much delivery is going to be. The lamp is currently being sold for £12.99

Couldn't you put in a request for them to transfer it from here, to you?

EDIT:
I reserved it, so you might not be able to find it anymore... I have until Monday morning for you to decide... as I'll be at work all day...

Right, I can get it if I find time out of work to go, but I'll need to secure payment before I do. If I can't get it, you'll get your money back.
Postage would be at cost. Don't know how much it costs as I don't know the box dimensions and weight. Check here for estimate: http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/content1?catId=400031&mediaId=51000711. I believe it would go as "Parcel", but I may be wrong.

I can provide postage receipt for proof of postage. Unless you want the recorded option for confirmed delivery.


EDIT:
I have just been out and picked it up. Please PM me for payment details. You will need to confirm method of postage and I can get you a quote of cost.
Thanks.

EDIT:
I just got home and have taken a picture of just the box. I have not opened it, so you will get it as "Factory Sealed".
However, I will secure the lid with more cellotape when it goes in transit. Are there any other special requests?

http://i508.photobucket.com/albums/s327/moe922/IMAG0001.jpg

I just weighed it now, and it's 1.970kg. If I *just* stick your address label on it without anything else, it will pass as 2kg
2kg Postage via Royal Mail Parcel is £4.41
Are you happy with that?

If you want me to cellotape the corners, or wrap it up etc. then it may push it over 2kg to 4kg, which will cost £7.06

There is another option - Collect+ (http://www.collectplus.co.uk/send/. It costs £4.49 and it is tracked. The only thing is that you'd have to collect it yourself at your nearest Collect+ agent. I've used this once and it worked out well. So not sure if you want to opt for this method, or Royal Mail. To find your local Collect+ agent, click on that link and click on "Send a Parcel". Enter your post code and find out where your local agent is.

PayPal gift is fine. Payment details sent via PM now.

Thanks, moe922. Details received okay.

Going with the Royal Mail Parcel (and just sticking my address on the parcel) will be fine :). I have sent you £22.40 as a gift through PayPal, broken down as follows:

£12.99 Lamp +
£4.41 P&P +
£5.00 For Your Trouble
= £22.40

Have also PM'd you my address.

Many thanks for all this, you've made my week!

Hi Moe922,

I've just got back in and my lodger had put the parcel in my room :). I just opened it and put it on the other bedside cabinet - it's in perfect condition, and works great. Thank you ever so much :).

Parcel was packed brilliantly too!

Pleasure doing business with you.

Thanks

Steve

PS: How can I give you feedback on here? I can't seem to find the option anywhere!
