D-610170/244DELIVERY I will deliver this item myself for £15 only within a 25 mile radius of Brackley in Northamptonshire, £35 only within a radius of 26-50 miles or up to £75 only within a radius of 51-100 miles. Where possible, I will quote at commercial rates for distances over 100 miles or try for couriers with part loads but, in all cases where you are considering a purchase, please let me have your PostCode so I may confirm the delivery cost. Alternatively, you are welcome to collect the item yourself. Although I only, at present, offer a UK delivery option, I am open to enquiries from outside the UK and I can arrange shipment to the USA & Europe. However, please bear in mind that shipping costs may be prohibitive and will include my own expenses. NB: I DO NOT OFFER 'CLICK & COLLECT' ON THIS ITEM. Since September 4th, 2013 eBay have been charging a Final Value Fee on P&P Costs; since I make no money on P&P, this represents a considerable & unwarranted additional cost against my business and, regrettably, I have no option but to pass this on to my Customer. PAYMENT I accept payment by PayPal, Cheque & Postal Order but generally, in the case of items of furniture, I prefer Cash upon Delivery/Collection. VIEWING This item may be viewed, by appointment, at Brackley in Northamptonshire. RETURNS I aim to offer the highest levels of quality & service. If I do fall short of these standards, please let me know and I will do all I can to put things right. Please note that I am obliged by eBay to opt in to their Managed Returns process; however, the vast majority of items that I sell fall outside of the scope of this process, by virtue of Size & Weight. In addition, whether I deliver in person or use a specialist courier, your purchase arrives without packaging and, so far as I am aware, none of the providers contracted to the eBay Managed Returns process offer an un-packaged service. Nevertheless, your transaction is covered by the relevantUK consumer law. You are therefore entitled to cancel your purchase within 14 days of receipt and you have a further 14 days in which to return it or provide proof of dispatch. So, if your purchase is not as you had expected, just return it in its original condition (and packaging, if applicable) within 28 days of receipt and I will be happy to provide a full refund of the cost of the item and the original delivery charge. Please note, however, that you will have the opportunity upon Delivery or Collection to satisfy yourself that it is ‘fault-free’ and 'as described'. If you wish subsequently to cancel the purchase because you have changed your mind (defined as a ‘remorse’ return) then regretfully, because of the nature of the item, I ask that you meet the costs of return shipment yourself. Where I quote a fixed P&P price, typically for smaller items of furniture or furnishings, these will be packaged & shipped by commercial courier and will often fall within the scope of the eBay Managed Returns process. Your consumer rights are not affected by the means of delivery or the returns process and you are entitled to return any item within 28 days, as above. If the item is faulty or not as described, I will meet the cost of return shipment, as well as the original delivery charge but, if you simply change your mind, I ask that you pay for return shipment yourself.

Condition: A genuine period article from Early-20thC, so expect some wear & tear commensurate with age & normal use but probably re-painted more than once and in very good, clean & sound condition, ready to use in your home., Product Type: Kit Trunk, Original/Reproduction: Original, Style: Great War, Material: Pine, Age: 1900-1934
