Londinium R

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

For sale is my 2 month old Londinium R. Bought at the beginning of lock down as an experiment as i left my GS3 in London. I will be heading back soon so no longer require this machine and personal preference i like the GS3 more.

Still has the protective wrapping on the sides and back, with wireless dongle and in brilliant condition.

Currently the machine is in North Yorkshire but i have the original box so willing to ship at the buyer expense and liability if required. Bargain price considering the price hike of the new LR24!

£2350

Hi @Dunk,  if you are prepared to take an offer that’s a bit lower than your asking price together with overcoming the problem of exchanging the machine, then consider me interested, though I fully understand if you want to hang on a bit for your asking price.

Like you I fancy giving the machine a try and ditching it if it doesn’t suit. TBH, I was really hanging on to see what the LC was going to be like, but your advert got me thinking and the timing coincided with a holiday refund I’ve just had in. Will you take £2200?

I live in West Wales where we are still operating a 5 mile lockdown and it’s a fair step to North Yorkshire, even if lockdown restrictions weren’t in force.

If you met me in the middle at £2275 consider it yours and we can work out logistics of getting it to you?

The original box makes it super well packed so shipping wouldn't be an issue if you wanted to go that route?

Not sure i can at that price sorry. Especially considering insurance on the shipping. I will be traveling down to london mid july and i think it'd fit in the car so meeting "distanced" could also be an option which would be nearer you.

If we were to agree on a price, certainly timing isn’t an issue for me, since this is purely an unplanned potential purchase, also the lockdown radius could be lifted by then so may well work.

Out of curiosity, where would you consider as a potential candidate for a distanced meeting?

Anywhere near ish the M1 would be ideal as that'd be my route down.

That’s a fair distance there and back for me as I live way past the end of the M4. 
Just checked some distances on maps, I’m just about 400 mile round trip to the M25 and a 370 mile trip to the M1 side of Coventry. Either way it’s about £50 in fuel plus the time.

Any experience with sending big packages by courier? Mine is limited, I have used Hermes and Dpd local before - neither appear to take a coffee machine sized box on first glance. I’m trying to work out potential total cost to me and not getting anywhere so far, until I know what the total potential cost is with your meet in the middle price, it’s hard to make a decision - or a counter offer.

I think DHL is the best option, this is who it came with from the factory.

I think unless a business you may be limited to 25kg on dhl. TNT might do 30kg as well

Not weighed it but would assume about 35kg

I will measure the box but wold guess at 60x60x60 would cover it easy.

I think depth is 55, so the box will probably be larger than 60

Just put in 35kg with an 80x60x60 package size with TNT  came in to £175 inc insurance for £2500. That’s not going to work. UPS want postcodes and DHL I’m working on.

Looks like over £160 depending on insurance level

Yeah that looks way too expensive.

Been trying to speak with a person to confirm but not getting anywhere with DHL they seem to be way cheaper - suspiciously so £48 delivery and supposedly 1.5% of insured value as a premium. That doesn’t fit in with the Parcel Hero enhances cover price.

I would really, really, recommend that you check the courier's or agent's terms and conditions. Coffee machines are often specifically excluded from compensation. It is by no means unknown for heavy machines to be damaged in transit. Good luck trying to claim. It would be much safer to meet.

I'd second this, shipping and then trying to claim if there is any damage....good luck with that!

Thanks @Norvin and @DavecUK, it’s been a learning experience checking out the courier sites and on occasion it’s felt like send a fool further.

A lot of courriers pay out for loss but not damage.
