Ade, on the .com site set your location as UK you should then be told if an item that you look at is indeed available "in the UK warehouse".

You should however be aware that HK have a rather "individual" way of doing business -

  1. I get the distinct impression that, where HK are concerned, "in the UK" doesn't necessarily mean "in the UK" in the full and straight forward meaning of that phrase as you or I might naturally understand it. wink 2
  2. HK have something of a reputation for being - how should I put it - somewhat slow on the "customer response" side if the response is anything other than taking some money, putting an item in a box and posting it. You might like to read this thread as an example of what I mean. And this is by no means an isolated example I'm afraid.

Ade, take a deep breath and provide the link to exactly what you are intending to buy.....Codename-John provided the link to the UK warehouse product and you posted the International Warehouse link. Which is it you want?smile

Exactly...such a shame, i mean if they offered me the jet at that price £52.99 (which is what it costs with postage) and said free postage i would be slightly tempted.

They have 3 left in the Euro warehouse which also serves the UK from Holland and you will pay only $7.99 postage - and get it in not much longer than UK delivery.

Just for clarity if you buy it from the UK warehouse it's going to cost $56.30 plus $9.49 postage for the cheaper 48 hour option. That's going to be somewhere around the £50 mark. Remember that items from the UK warehouse cost more than items from the international warehouse. As has been said already, items in the UK warehouse ALWAYS have "UK Warehouse" in the item description.

This is the link to the UK item and it is in stock.... But it is cheaper from Europe
