There is a reason why B&M clothing stores sell stuff at 200-400% mark-up, and part of that is the "shrink".
Sure, I actually agree with you in terms of it being unfair on the seller. But hey, gotta work with the reality of the situation and it's just simpler to use insurance and avoid the fallout. But you're right, that adds to the overall cost. It typically costs me around Â£18-25 to ship a suit to the states, depending on the weight, and about Â£5-7 of that is insurance, depending on how much I need.

It would have been a great lawsuit. The Plaintiff could say Your Honor, I was promised this package and it never arrived. Who do you think the Judge would have ruled for?
I would have thought if no money changed hands, no contract was entered into?
Why is it this board is crawling with legal-beagles and yet none have chimed in here yet? Surely it counts towards billable hours?
