The ridiculously high prices of Spain's Postal service : Correos + Lime Picture Disc ( Synthpop)


Correos - Spain's Postal

services abusive prices

Summary: Plus a picture disc by LIME - synthpop - in action

Recently I sold an LP record on eBay to someone in the U.S.

From having looked at similar sales on eBay it appeared that the average shipping price for an LP ( 12") would be around $10. So that's the amount I asked for.

Then I took the package to Spain's postal service Correos for shipping. I was told the postage would be 17 Euros !!!! That is 24 dollars !!

Needless to say, I lost money on the eBay Sale.

This is another example on how everything in Spain is out of proportion more expensive than everywhere else while peoples incomes are still embarrasingly low.

As a proof that postal charges are not that high elsewhere in the world, last week I received an LP just like the one I shipped, from France containing a picture disc LP from LIME

Look closely and you will see that the La Poste France stamp shows 4 Euros. Compare that with the robbery of 17 Euros performed on me by Spain's post office!!!.

Maybe the European Parlament could be useful in dissallowing the Spanish government to allow a public entity charge out of proportion fees. Otherwise we don't need European parliaments for anything.

In the video bellow you can watch the 12" picture disc LP that I bought in action on my turntable. It is by Canadian synthpop duo LIME and its the picture disc version of their LIME 3 or LIME III Lp from 1983.

Even though it has not been updated since 5 years ago, I remind you that I have a website at the following link dedicated to LIME LE PAGE Canadian synthpop duo
