Let us set the scene by introducing a situation that I’m sure you’ve all experienced at least once.
You’re in the process of redecorating your home and decide you want to treat yourself to a new sofa. After visiting the local stores on Island, you decide to take a look online to see if you can get a better deal or to see what other options are available.
You spend hours scrolling through different websites until you have about 25 BILLION tabs open with suggestions to show your other half.
You finally both manage to agree on a sofa. THE sofa. The sofa that will transform your living room. It’s the perfect size, the perfect shape, the perfect colour and the perfect price.
Before you change your mind, you quickly add it to the cart and get ready to make your payment.
In an ideal world, your payment will be accepted and your sofa will arrive to your door with no problems. However, you often come across this message:
‘Sorry, we don’t offer shipment to the Isle of Man.’
Or something along those lines.
Or perhaps it will class you as being ‘international’ and add a huge surcharge to the postage of your item that the ‘bargain’ you spent so long finding no longer seems such good value.
How frustrating and unfair!
And hence, Island Express was born! To save you from this situation.
