    Hi,
    We are facing an excess charge from TNT of £250.22 on an original international postage label costing £58 because one of the box dimensions was found to have exceeded by 8cm. We have sent in photographic proof that the dimensions given were correct which resulted in a a £9 credit but I have now received final reminders for £241 and court action pending letters.

    The fact that the excess charges could be over 500% the original cost of postage seems excessive and arbitrary in the extreme. No explanation is given as to how the charge is derived. I am worried now that I could face court costs if I look to fight this claim and wondered if any one else had been in a similar situation and can offer advice on how best to proceed

    Thanks
    Paul

    Best bet is to give them a call and speak to someone.
