    I think it is the value. Apols, as I said above, I was looking from our RM business account, not the over-the-counter rate.

    Is it 2k retail or wholesale? Can you reduce the value? It may be a carrier is the best value unless you can split the shipment (difficult with one length of fabric).

    I couldn't reduce it unfortunately. I'm returning it to its owner and it's one of two made so I need to insure to full value. Ho hum. It's going not to the Netherlands for the maker to clean and send it on so the quote is £55 now. That's via transglobal DPD. Which is ok.

    If, for example, your item was considered as antique it would not be covered.

    Also better to ensure the op checks transglobals T&Cs.
    Often differ from the carrier direct.
