The sheet should probably be updated to say "what country are you buying in". As that's what it's referring to. 



Another very important question I'd like to ask, and that I think should be included in, is does size/weight matter to you? Maybe something more "what are your limits on weight/size?". 


EDIT: Oh and you should probably remove what town you're in. For safety reasons.

99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.
