Yes, they have my damn parcel. On the plus side, it only took about ten minutes (spread over two phone calls, because heaven forfend their call centre might open before 9am) to ascertain that there were customs charges needing to be paid on it and to give the call centre a number on which Mitcham Depot might contact me to arrange the payment of such charges. (Anyone care to place a bet on whether they call back today? ETA: in fairness, they have just called back)

Is it just me, or does £28.97 seem a lot to pay on a parcel containing an item valued at $99? Okay, some of that is probably Parcelfarce's handling charge, and some more of it is probably VAT, but still.
