    Right I buy and restore vintage items and sell them back on , any how I bought a 100 year old toilet with toilet seat ,and it arrived today smashed ....the reason being the seller just put it in a box and posted it with parcel force ,No bubble wrap, not secure the metal brackets so they swing in box smashing out let pipe and inlet pipe .. It's not about the money I would have made so much but the fact it's a peace of history lost because of a moron :wallbash:

    Totally agree with your sentiments.:wallbash:

    Hope your thread doesn't get "panned" though by relentless humour from a "flush" of "crap" jokes. Suspect it will though ;)

    What was the reason the seller packed it so badly?

    Or do you have nothing to go on....
