I've been looking on the bay (again!) and I've noticed that Autoworld now have their own store on there. Pretty cool I thought as I could get cars from the source.

Wrong! If I wanted to buy a nice black/orange Dodge Daytona, I can buy it for £7.44 which is a really good price but they want £82.22 to post it to the UK! £82.22 is how much 11 Dodge Daytonas costs!

I've sent them an email asking if I could have some of what they're smoking and whether these prices were correct so we'll see what they say. I did point out that I usually have cars sent from the US for $5.

If they charge a sensible postage price then buying from AW will be great as AW cars are usually sold by private sellers for a lot more. Ho hum.

That's probably the cost to have it shipped UPS expediated delivery or something stupid like that. The fact that most people won't pay 10x the auction cost for postage sort of flies over their heads.

Autoworld should know better, but I know from over 10 years of dealing with the USA on eBay most sellers have absolutely no clue about posting abroad and (depending on location) most US post offices know even less! I've had to look info up on USPS website before and pass it on to sellers as they had been told complete nonsense by their local post office.

Best was a £5 Sting CD where they wanted £50 postage. Why I wanted next day courier delivery on it was beyond me. I had to query whether they were posting me a CD or Sting himself!
