    quote Paul Humble:

    I would class delivery as essential, I can hardly travel 150 miles just to pick up a small piece of artwork that cannot be sourced locally.

    Im genuinely interested to know other people views on this.

    Paul, there are no alternatives, vat is payable on the carriage,
    it makes no matter if charged at cost then you still pay, but it is included.
    if your supplier charges more than its costing, then he has to add the difference in vat, thats the whole point of it, there is nothing wrong with charging more for the service though, its bought by the supplier, and he has to make a profit on it, he has to spend time to pack and contact the courier etc.
    so unfortunately that’s life,
