I know is not the topic of the discussion but I’ll answer this one

Another thing that bugged me is when i asked for quotes it comes back as in a way that i actually have to work out how much its going to costs me.
I feel if i send you all the details you require (weight, dimensions and everything else that was asked) then please work out how much you will charge me and don’t make me calculate.

This is a general conversation between person and their forwarder:-

Customer: I have a shipment which is 10 boxes at 20 x 20 x 20cm, GW 10kg per box.

Forwarder: That will be $X

Shipment arrives from the factory to the forwarder and the actual details are 10boxes at 25 x 25 x 25cm, GW 15kg per box

Forwarder: As the details had to be amended the price has been adjusted to $Y.

Customer: Hey, you told me this was the price. You cheater! You are all the same ripping off us poor people. How do you sleep at night.

Forwarder: That’s why we provide you the terms and you can work it out yourself.
