It was a carry on because the person I was buying my house from was in an emotional state. We ended up moving in before she had moved out so there was no room for the furniture I bought on ebay. I asked the shipper to call the person I had bought the furiture from and keep him up to date with arrangements. This was a mistake on my part as I should have done this. When the shipper failed to do this the seller became annoyed with me. The seller threatened to charge me storage and I felt let down. I did get my furniture in the end. It could have been more carefully transported. Also the shipper said it would be delivered very late in the day so I did not rush home as usual. I was very suprised to get a call at 5pm saying he was outside my house! I was stuck in London traffic expecting him at 10pm.
