Please take care when sending expensive bike parts through the post or with couriers.
I sold/sent some forks to someone through STW classifieds and they got lost by the courier, according to the courier they have limted liability for the goods and i'm only entitled to £15 per kg for the parcel weight.
I am currently arguing the case with them as I said I had requested insurance on the parcel up to £300, which they are saying they have no record off, luckily though I kept the drivers note.
This companies policy is that even if they lose your parcel and admit to losing it they only have to pay up for £15 per kg, not alot when a pair of forks weigh less than 2kg.
Also when you make a sale create yourself an invoice and send it with the goods, a word document stating date/goods/price/signed/delivery costs will be good enough. They will ask you for this if the goods get lost, if you can't provide one it may result in no refund even if you have insurance.
The case goes on but i am currently £290 worse off
