Hi, and welcome to BE.

Can I just check - are you proposing to charge for this service?

Thanks.

Hello, no, not charging for the service as such, but obviously the goods ordered would be charged at cost. I can also deliver (bring) any purchases from Amazon or similar, which would otherwise not be shipped to Slovenia (friends ask me for that all the time). Hope that's ok, Maurice

Hi Maurice,

What part of slovenia do you go to? I have been trying to get a certain type of plastic wall vent that only seems to be available in UK and the stockists do not post overseas. I could perhaps have it posted to you in UK.

Hello, I normally visit area around Brezice (southern part of Slovenia), and Lendava (next to Hungarian border in the east). Will be driving there from the UK at the end of May, so let me know if I can bring you anything (I can also post locally from either Slovenia or Hungary). Regards, Maurice

Thanks Maurice. I just had another look for the vent I need and this time I found a seller on Ebay who is willing to post the item to me here. I tried to purchase it but hit a new snag!
I now have a problem with Paypal. I have 2 bank accounts in UK but statements etc come to my address in Hungary. I just tried to pay for the vent but Paypal were asking for debit card details as I think the card I used before with them had expired. I can fill in the card number etc. OK but then they want the address that goes with the card. The form only accepts addresses in UK so I can't enter my Hungary address. Paypal is the only available payment method with this seller so I may still need to cancel the purchase and find a different way to buy the item.

Thanks for the offer but it is now sorted and I have ordered the item. I did contact the supplier but got no reply. I just tried again to make the purchase and found I had the option of paying through Paypal by card but not logged in to a Paypal account. This worked OK.

Hi Maurice, old Ourslovenia member and someone who is interested in all
aspects relating to Slovenia.
You sound a very nice, genuine and helpful person. It is good to know you
are about and offering a really nice service/help/assistace...
Unfortunately this site is somwhat slow but there are some nice helpful people
still on it.
Might just take you up on the offer one day.
Kind regards, Michael

Hi all,

New to forums and noticed this thread hence registering.
Recently arrival to Slovenia and living here now and hopefully find job here too.

Great idea to see someone been kind enough to offer travel time for purchasing good from uk amazon/ebay etc...

Include me into pool, I`ve done the 1100mile trip once so might be heading back to UK in the next 6-months.

We can also think about a courier service between ourselves to service Slovenia.

Thx
