was shopping around for some cheap road tyres the other day.

now i normally buy from a decent place cumbria via their online site.

they tyres get delivered to my fitter and i go when convenient.

but another website caught my eye.

good reviews 12 cheaper per pair and free shipping so a 20 quid saving.

ordered them on monday at half one lunchtime.

here is the tracking info from DPD.



so ordered monday, collected tuesday and delivered thursday.

nothing remarkable there......

look at the tracking again...

they came from the Netherlands.

so 3 day delivery, cheaper than the uk and free postage.

hows that work then?

People want your business - shipping within the EU is 3 days now either way and there is no such thing as free shipping Laughing

i agree, i shall rephrase....

i saved 20 on a pair of cheap roadtyres by buying from a different online store......

i saved 60 because i never bought them from the high street.

The last four tyres i bought came from tyre leader (German company i think). They came from the Netherlands or similar. Ordered on a Thursday pm, Arrived Tuesday pm and over 100 cheaper than the cheapest quote i got in the UK.
