I bought a rug from a large co-operative carpet retailer in central Marrakech (called Palais Vizir, at 29 Derb Sania Hay, Laksour) when in Marrakech a few weeks ago but they sent the wrong rug over. I have spoken to them several times on the phone since and they have retained the correct rug on one side for exchange (and they have sent photos showing the correct rug) but they are being slow and uncommunicative about engaging in the practicalities of exchanging the two carpets.
All that is needed is to find a cheap way of getting the wrong carpet between London and Marrakech.
The carpets are only about 2kg in weight, are not very valuable, and pack up into a hand luggage size bundle.
Can any one give me a steer on the cheapest form of shipping for something like this?
Alternatively, is anyone reading this travelling to and from Marrakech in the near future and willing to act as the courier for a small fee?
Or does anyone who knows Marrakech have any other bright ideas about how to resolve this?
