    Het bestelde boek is meer dan een week onderweg geweest.
    Op het etiket bleek het huisnummer te ontbreken; oorzaak?
    Niet leverbaar volgens DPD, vreemd waarom werd het telefnr. Op het label niet gebeld?

    Beste klant, allereerst hartelijk dank voor de toch positieve feedback. En uiteraard onze excuses voor de vertraging van de levering. Dit boek was op de beurs in Maastricht, omdat Catawiki daar een stand had en mooie items had gevraagd aan ons. Uiteindelijk moesten wij toen de verzending laten uitvoeren door de collega’s van Catawiki, maar via onze account. Het boek werd derhalve niet vanuit ons eigen adres verstuurd en ergens is iets niet 100% goed gegaan. Iemand zei echter ook dat er wat algemene leverproblemen waren in die week. Al met al, heeft het langer geduurd dan de bedoeling was, wij zijn altijd enorm scherp met onze service (in al die jaren nog nooit één negatieve feedback gehad) en hopen het in een volgend geval goed te maken! En inderdaad, wij zetten altijd speciaal het tel. nr. op de verzendlabels, voor zulke gevallen, helaas nemen ze dan toch niet even die moeite... zonde! Met vriendelijke groeten, Bibliopola
