    Anyone tired of the rfd to rfd ripoff?

    tnt delivery 9.95 rfds charge 25 each way for 1 line in a ledger and 1 line on a certificate.
    Shameful practice....

    I am really lucky then. My local guy charges me only the postage. Although i have known him for over 30 years and been a customer of that shop longer.

    Why? It is a service with a charge. You don't just have RFD status. You have to have the infrastructure to qualify. The safes, alarm systems and the knowledge. Many RFD's would not be there if the income generated from transfers did not bolster their income. It is just another income stream to justify their existance. Without the local RFD the bigger shops would have a total market place. OK the corner shop is dearer than the supermarket but many miss the convienience when the wee shop closes. Remember you have usually bypassed the local shop to purchase your gun elsewhere. Then you need his services to get it delivered. Think about it, smile and pay the piper.

    As with most things, the cost does not reflect the turning of the screw, but knowing which screw to turn and having the correct screwdriver.

    might seam high but they have to make a living to. and if instant you wanted a rifle that was in Scotland and you live in the south of england. the 25 pound works out a massive saving for you compared to paying fuel to get there and back to pick it up yourself

    Congratulations for your facetious reply.
    No I just get a little pissed at 65 taken and mumbled excuses for the pleasure of them not bothering to supply a reasonable service for that amount of wedge...
    Seems that you all have money to burn or just do not care about being overcharged for ahem 'services'
    Ok will not argue on this matter any further I understand that the general consensus is 'shut up and pay'.

    In reality the cost is driven by a number of factors but ultimately it is the price the market will bear.
    After all, it's a specialist service to a small niche market.

    And lets face it, the rest of the RFD business operates on very thin margins and a lot of cash gets tied up in stock that turns over very, very slowly.
