    Hi,
    the transport costs are very high, 60 € for the carpet - other packages up to 15kg with DHL cost only 19€.
    Better get some alternative costings in - or we dont buy anymore - value of the carpet

    Dear buyer,

    DHL has one of the worst services though they are cheap. I have had too much trouble with them. As described in the lot, we only ship with quality couriers. Also your rug is in excess of 25 kg so there is no comparison to a package of dhl of 15kg for 19 euros all the way to Spain. I understand your confusion but these are the shipping rates that we both have to come to terms with. Besides that you won a rug worth €400 and professionally cleaned for only 6 euros (which I congratulate you with), and still feel unhappy?

    Best regards

    Dear buyer, I except that you may have perceived the carpet different but it is exactly as offered. It has been professionally cleaned, has a distressed spot and residing stains which have all been photographed with close ups and mentioned in the description, more over I always shoot over 30 pictures from different angels so that buyers may fully consider the rug. It is my policy to not sell any dirty rugs and even after-treat them with anti-allergy solution. I understand that you expected something differently but I have in no way provided you a dirty rug nor have I been dishonest. Should you wish to cancel your purchase I would surely oblige you.

    I wish you best of luck in your future purchases.

    Het kleed werd na betaling nog de zelfde dag verstuurd. Het pakket was goed verpakt en na het uitpakken enorm verrast naar de kwaliteit en netheid. Enorm mooie diepe kleuren, precies zoals op de fotos
