Anyone having problems sending things by post to Northern Ireland?
Luckily I sent a parcel tracked, but only "signed for" tracking...and people complain about the extra £1 for that!
Tracking says "in transit"...I know the mail system says may be delayed due to coronavirus, but this says Brexit problems to me.


no, so far i have had nowt to send "abroad" , i now wonder how "exporting" a historic sash that has ended up in blighty might work?

not got one yet but i am now seeking one

It might have ended up in the 'open with care for inspection' pile then. Hope it gets through soon.

so far i have been brave enough to look to see what i would need to do should i, for instance, want to send another 1920's crystal radio to austria.

a few years back(when markets etc were open)i did one for iirc£70 +pnp which seemed a fair price both ends

if that now has extra taxes and duties and fees etc the price at the delivery end would not be acceptable compared to one bought from within the eu

for instance will something made of wood need a no beetles ticket, will "used" have the same rules as "antique" and if it has a bit of silver inlay or is an old but relatively low value spoon is that a new world of precious metals pain?

for single items that will go in the post it seems complex, for something like a dozen chairs the logistics of a van over several borders are an extra hurdle above any paperwork issues

i am minded that only very high value goods will be economical to export to the eu and even then they need enough rarity to justify buying from brexitania rather than a more local version.

umm

expensive or domestic seems a reasonably tactical start

cheap to there no longer is viable

I wonder whether, post-pandemic, it might be cheaper to take a trip to France or NL with any small saleables and mail them via a local post office than to pay however many hundreds of pounds extra per shipment the new Brexit bonus is? Not viable or a business with repeated turnover, but for an occasional seller of small, high-value items, it may be the only feasible way - albeit more expensive and more hassle than before.

the more i learn the closer it seems to imposing trade sanctions on your own population.

maybe they intend piracy and smuggling to be the regrowth industries

Or, given that setting up distribution centres and subsidiaries in the EU is beyond the means of many SMEs it's just another way to shovel market share into the pockets of Tory donors?

That and other policies certainly seem to point that way. Whether it is deliberate, or just the result of listening only to the big players in any industry I am not sure. Sometimes one policy goes against another 'stated' policy, such as reduction of single use plastic, but insisting that all log sacks contain logs under 20% moisture content. Only way to be sure is to seal them in plastic.
