Trade with Dave took a long time to come full circle but the fault of that is on me. Dave was able to supply me with some caps I was searching for for a long time. Excellent communication and rapid shipment once the swap was finalized. I would recommend this collector from western Canada.
It has been quite some time since I have done an international trade as shipping rates are usually very cost prohibitive and with my current collecting interest it is difficult to find collectors from outside of USA to be able to help me add to my collection. However, in steps David Wood from the UK. After a few correspondences back and forth we agreed upon nice selections that we are both very pleased to have in our respective collections. Whenever I seek something special from Great Brittan David will certainly be the collector I reach out to first.
Just completed a small trade with Grzegorz. While it took FOREVER (2+ months) for his parcel to reach me I blame this on the Polish post. Grzegorz had great communication and he made every effort to trace this parcel during the delay.
I will comment that shipping cost to Poland are very very expensive and I would need to be offered great new caps in which I have interest to do another trade with collectors in Poland.
Completed a special limited cap trade with Eric having found something specific that he was collecting in exchange for a couple of rare Uk caps from defunct UK breweries. Excellent. I hope we get an opportunity to trade again. I am pleased to have made the contact with Eric.
Trade took some time to develop but great material from across the country. Would trade again.
Just completed another small trade with my buddy from sunny California. Great US collector. 05/27/11
Seems like a yearly thing... Jason and I just completed another quality trade. Great collector from the west coast of USA. 05/23/12
Juergen & Nils discussed a trade with me long ago but it never got a chance to take place. Recently however, we were able to agree on a nice little trade in which I was able to add a nice new set into my collection as well as add some nice caps to theirs. Great communication from these collectors, very easy to work with and very rapid shipment from France. I would trade again with these veteran collectors. 05/27/11
>>>> Feb 6, 2013. Another nice swap with my friends in France. Nice new sets for the collection.
I received an e-mail from Elija and Micha with a trade offer after I posted a "wanted" message in the CCI shout-box. After a bit of discussion we were able to work out a nice, mutually beneficial trade. Great communication and very fast shipment. I am pleased with this German collector family. Danke! 4/27/11
Hi Eric and my friend collectors!
What Eric said is all correct! Unfortunately I have been late in almost all my tradings because of my working travels around Brazil. In fact, it has nothing to do with not answering emails, but since february my dayly routine is being a mess...
Tino Nadler from Germany and Mike from New Zealand were alo waiting on me for a long time and, as I did with Eric, I had to say Im sorry for a thousand times.
As reputation is all we have (right buddies?), I thank you Eric for the good feedback and for telling everybody in clear words that I did not cheated on you! =)
Well... thank God all my caps were sent and are arriving! But maybe I will be off for new tradings for some more time in order to not let new partners wait on me...
See you next trade, Eric! Thanks!!! The caps were AMAZING!!!
Let me first first say, Luiz is a good man. Prior to our swap we had great communication in the shout-box and via e-mail on many topics from caps to life in general. That being said, this is a slightly difficult review to write... I received the caps from Luiz as we agreed upon. From the point where we agreed upon the trade until the arrival of the caps I do wish the communication from Luiz was better however. I found myself waiting for a very long time for the caps. Luiz seemed to "disappeared" and this was after a string of great communication, which seemed completely out of character. I rate Luiz as Highly Recommendable since the caps did arrive and they were sent registered, it was a painful waiting period however due to lack of communication. Luiz and I have been in contact since the arrival of the parcel and it is now understood why the delay occurred and I feel confident mine was an isolated incident.
A message to collectors- respond to e-mails and send caps upon completion of trade discussion.
After we began discussing a trade almost a year ago, Harry and I finally were able to recently make a mutually beneficial swap. Great communication, and nice caps I needed for my collection. Sorry I missed this collector when I was in Berlin in June of 2010. Would trade again. 4/6/11
Alberto was able to complete a set for me with one loose crown that I searched for a very long time. His communication was excellent and his effort to assist me was unmatched. Excellent collector who now has a dedicated crown cap friend in the USA. 04/01/11
