As luck would have it they have a depot quite near where I go
on Saturday mornings anyway. You get �1 off, dropping off
at the depot. Its also near a B&Q and Staples which I like to
wander around. I think this is a lucky omen

Also I like Parcelforce's delivery policy they leave it with a
neighbour or the local post office for around 30? days
and card matey so there's no point in his refusing it.
I've just taken about 20 photos of me packing the thing
as well in case he says it arrived damaged. I'm really
not worried about the cost �12 or �15 - that's a slap on
the wrist for me buying from a seller with zero feedback.
Just so long as the seller doesn't get to hold on to any
of my money,

He's out for �15 too as he spent �15 on postage which he's
refunding me but then he described it wrongly and it is
unusable as it is.

Just now I'm trying to get his phone no through his
contact details which parcelforce require. This wasn't
on the details Paypal sent me.

Its just arrived and I've just now realised that the ebay seller
and the seller according to Paypal are two different people presumably
husband and wife as they have the same surname. The thick plottens as
they say. Often tough sounding ebay names have girly paypal
names but this is two different people. I think.

I hope you won't consider it rude if I simply repeat
mostly what I posted in reply to Mike.

Parcelforce have a depot quite near where I go
on Saturday mornings anyway. You get �1 off dropping off.
Its also near a B&Q and Staples which I like to wander around.

I like Parcelforces delivery policy they leave it with a

and card matey so there's no point in his refusing it.

as well in case he says it arrived damaged. I'm really
not worried about the cost �12 on �15 - that's a slap on
the wrist for me buying from a seller with zero feedback.
Just so along as the seller doesn't get to hold onto any
of my money,

And as another slap in the wrist it was trying to save money
by jumping on a BIN from a seller with zero feedback which landed
me in this mess in the first place.

That paragraph confirms what I already suspected.

16 days then O.K ? Smartypants. Thats what the "?" was for.

"We deliver to an address, not a named individual. When no one
is available to accept the item, we will try and deliver the
parcel to a neighbour, or to a local Post Office branch, where
it will be held for 16 days. A card will be left informing the
recipient of the attempted delivery and where the parcel can
be collected from."
