    Goedendag,

    PostNL geeft aan dat het pakket op 4 november op het door u opgegeven is aangeboden. Helaas heeft men u daarvan volgens uw bericht niet van in kennis gesteld, waarna het pakket na een week op het postkantoor te hebben gelegen is doorgestuurd naar de afdeling onbestelde poststukken in Den Haag.

    Ik probeer het pakket via PostNL daar te laten achterhalen. Met vriendelijke groet Collecteur Chasseur.




    Met vriendelijke groeten Coll. Chasseur

    De brandweer helm had gebruikerssporen dat is normaal maar was bovendien heel erg vies ( van binnen ) Wij hebben het binnenwerk eruit gehaald en zullen proberen het zuiver te krijgen.

    Beste heer Van Hooijdonk, helaas heb ik de vervuiling niet op de wijze zoals u aangeeft opgemerkt. Het zou voor mij anders een kleine moeite zijn deze schoon te maken.
    De gebruikssporen zijn vermeldt in de aanbieding.
    Ik vind het heel vervelend dat u niet geheel tevreden bent.
