I won a kit on eBay for $13/Shipping ridiculous? in Model Building Questions and Answers Posted July 14, 2020 · Edited July 14, 2020 by jchrisf 23 minutes ago, Husky1943 said: Congrats Chris! I'm with you both.....kind of like, what????? Hey, who knows, but you got a good deal. My wife runs a mail order business, and shipping kills her. The heavier and further away just pushes the cost up and up. Oh well. Enjoy the kit! Ciao for now 29 minutes ago, Spruslayer said: First,congratz on the deal! If this was some individual and not a major corporation,and unless he scored the model for free he likely took a poors mans bath.If this was a major online retailer they could be getting a preferred customer deal from USPS,but i agree that is unusual! Hey thanks for the congrats! 🙂 This was an individual that was selling a few kits (I checked his other items). I wish I would have gotten more because they were a great price and looked like they were brand new. The decals were in great shape and he had the glass in a sandwich baggie. A Bobby Allison Golden Miller car went for $23. He had the shipping price in the action at around $7 so I assumed this would cover his shipping cost.. I hope he wasn't surprised when he went to ship. Last night I won a Morgan Shepard Citgo car, still in shrink wrap, for $10 shipped. I hope it is in great condition too. The seller had something like $5.50 for shipping figured into the auction. Most of these cars are way over priced IMO but there are some deals out there. Maybe they were hoping the bid war would get them more money. I haven't shipped anything in a while but if I sell one of these I'm going to figure $13 into the shipping price for sure.
