Just wanting to know what companies deliver to Shetland without huge delivery costs. I'm getting fed up looking up Christmas presents, clothes or housey things only to find that they don't deliver up here.


So far I've discovered:





Mamas and Papas


Amazon.co.uk - but some of its shops i've found don't deliver up here



If you could add to the list it would be great.

[mod]The two threads - "Free deliveries to Shetland?" to "Companies who deliver to Shetland & Courier Agents" have been merged at this point on 14/03/2009.[/mod]


Could Shetlink members perhaps post to this thread details of companies who do not charge for deliveries to the islands? Also, perhaps, state what sort of products they deal in.

I have already noted the names John Lewis and ebuyer.com but thought it might be worthwhile to have such a source of information available in one place.


Apologies if such a list has been compiled in the past but, when I move to Shetland in early April, it would be of much assistance to me.

I have just looked at e-buyer and they charge a massive £12.99 + 36p a kilo for deliveries to Shetland which counts as Scottish offshore which is why they did not get my order which went to Amazon despite the product being £6 dearer from Amazon.


Already said this elsewhere but a warning about people who ship from the Channel Islands as Play.com do. Imports over £18 can leave you as the buyer and therefore the importer liable to both vat and customs duty. Something to be aware of before placing a big order.

Ebuyer does quote extra shipping to scottish island on their website, however as long as you're not ordering a massive item and you pick 3 day delivery it is at no extra charge, although it isn't free


as a test I tried to order a 17"tft and it didnt charge extra - however a 37" plasma they wouldnt ship to anything other than mainland.


So small electrical items seem ok for the moment

I buy almost all my "goodies" from Bigpockets now, and have done for some time.


They charge no extra for delivery here, are lighning fast (Citylink-WDA) and they always have a stock of Free Delivery items, so if you add one of them to your order, delivery is free, even if the free delivery item is a £5.99 set of speakers you can sell for a tenner on Ebay.


(some amazing bargains on there too just now, check out the Bag o Crap :-) )
