AT and orders via myself

Well I have my AT log in back now... its some changes to that site since I have been on Holibobs....

Following the roof lining thread:
I would guess that the postage is high to the Uk for a number of reasons:
€ to £ conversion for the article and carriage
Carriage would be calculated on size, volume and weight as it goes by air to the UK via DHL hub in Frankfurt.
Carriage is most likely tracked to the UK, most expensive way but its an expensive part. Most things I order for members are small and light so €6 each and I can get multiple items in the same box so again, postage saving.
Prices may reflect protection of Audi Dealerships and franchises.

With the reorganisation came changes to how I work with AT. I used to be able to get an invoice, check stuff when it arrived with me, then pay. Now that's for commercial clients/businesses and I am a "regular client" so pay on order. This makes no difference to the prices I paid, I never had a dealer discount or anything... but where previously people couldn't pay from the UK through their site, I could order (can still order btw) and get stuff posted to me then bounce it to the UK with a post share so saving money. That's how we benefitted by access to stuff which was not otherwise available by the great folk offering spares in the UK. . clips, pipes, new trim etc etc.

Remember, I'm not in any way connected with the motor trade, I'm an English teacher in real life.... yes, really I are one!

I have to say that all members working with me on this have been absolutely superb, nothing lost, no payment quibbles or hassle.... Thanks for that as I think we have spent over €2.5k collectively now which I pay out first before the money comes back to me.

The AT stash centre is I think 300km north from me and that €116 to deliver the roof lining, is a proud price.... I could drive past and collect on my way to the UK next time if its possible, I could ask them....

So I can still do orders if you are struggling for whatever reason if it helps, or the buy direct option may work if postage isn't too crippling.

Has anyone tried to order and pay for a small item from AT yet?

This post made me check AT for their stock of new rear footwell storage boxes ( 8Z0857379 4PK ) - My wallet is thankful that they've run out!

Thank you @Rickmeister for your services, the postage costs are frankly baffling, I've had whole gearboxes shipped to the UK from Europe for less than half the AT-quoted cost recently!
 
Thanks Rick, I know it sounds daft, but I don't think a headlining will fit in the car and still allow safe driving, not without taking the front seat out. For the total price i'm investigating other routes.

But it would fit in my Caddy Maxi... though the A2 has been Blackforest - Lincolnshire twice...
