Item was exactly as described with fast and secure delivery. Thank you
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Not a good experience as I had to pay a 60€ shipping charge, the most expensive one I've ever paid. In addition, when I received the package I had to pay another 7,33€.You happen to live on an Island and that itself incurs additional
shipping. Also you are liable to customs oversight and as a resident
you should have been aware of this. If you bothered to check the additional shipping cost reference stated by Catawiki on the listing you would have been aware of them.
Please don't blame me for the EU customs regulations or your inability
to read an auction submission properly.
