  • Boring postage weight question

    Sent a record to someone in Switzerland, and they've just emailed me to let me know it arrived, but that they noticed something odd with the weight - my post office weighed it at 509g and charged me 6.95 to send, but the buyer has weighed it and got 335g. So a big difference really. They aren't complaining, just giving me a heads up.

    So, boring question, what should the cost be to ship a single album to Switzerland? Or what do you charge inc p&p etc? Assume most records will be small parcels?

    Yeah, I know it's dull, but everytime I go to my post office I seem to get a different cost. They are useless.

    509g sounds right, I think the buyer has made a mistake?
    12"s or very light albums sometimes come in under 500g once they're packed securely, which is 5.60, otherwise it's 6.95

      Cheers, makes sense. Thinking about it, not sure how they got to 335g. Will weigh me next parcel and see what I get.

        Unless he had a brainfart and just weighed the record.
        Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

          It wouldn't surprise me if those post office scales are over a grand to buy.

              Arab On Radar, load of US noiseniks. Single LP in cruciform packaging.

              Buyer sent a pic of the record in packaging on scales, 335g. Maybe everything is a bit lighter in Switzerland. Probably up a mountain.

                An empty head weighs about 335g.
