    Bought a sledge on ebay, shipping is not as advertised though.

    cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/…dll?ViewItem&item=310192648326&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

    I thought it said the postage was £5,95 when I bid for it, but seller invoiced me for £10.95 shipping.

    I mean its only a plastic sledge.

    Do you live in any of the funny postcodes quoted? [FONT=Arial][SIZE=4]AB, CA, DD, EX, KY, LD, LL, PH, PL, SY, TQ etc[/SIZE][/FONT]

    err ........ in the link you sent is says :

    Postcodes: AB, CA, DD, EX, KY, LD, LL, PH, PL, SY, TQ + £5.00

    I guess you live in one of these areas so the charge is correct - otherwise demand a refund !

    You live on Isle of Wight?

    postcode is FK and I havent paid yet

    It would seem that this seller charges extra for specific postcodes - probably a fee handed down by his courier. Make sure you read the listing before purchasing things!

    He says examples of postcodes, then at the end of the listing it says to email for a p&p price if unsure. Potentially £30 for a sledge???? Asda not sell them your way?

    A recent neutral feedback,oops!!

    sledges delivered ok but broke after second use !

    send them a message asking why

    why buy a sledge on ebay? by the time you get it, it probably wont be snowing. this is the kind of thing you should go out and buy while you have the snow.
