Once its explained fair enough, but how am i supposed to know that unless its explained to me or i go through a situation like that.

I didn’t know why they quoted that way and it just bugged me

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

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.
