We try to be “green” by recycling everything we can. We do reuse boxes and packing materials, not only for the environmental purposes, but also because it simply makes sense to save money where we can, thereby keeping customers’ costs down.
Shipping is always through USPS, and will depend on what method the customer chooses. All orders are handled within 1-3 business days, Monday thru Friday. But occasionally you might get lucky on a Saturday!
I wish we had something to say in the costs of shipping these days. But, unfortunately, we don’t. We do try to estimate the correct and true cost in any shipment, but if we find we have overestimated those costs, we will refund you within a reasonable range. We do try to get as close as possible.
Please be aware that shipping costs are not refundable.
Sometimes if the costs are the same within a region, we can upgrade a shipment from Parcel Post to Priority Mail, at no additional expense to the customer. That often gives the customer an added bonus of $50.00 insurance from USPS, at no additional cost.
International shipments can be tricky, but we try to get them out as soon as reasonably possible. All international shipments will be made thru USPS.
If you desire, special arrangements can be made to ship particular items via a different mode, but there is an added cost to that, usually $3.50 per item to be shipped.
Please be aware that we are NOT responsible nor liable for any damage caused by any particular carrier or service. We ALWAYS pack carefully, because we want it to get to you the way we expect something to come to us! Always read the descriptions carefully, as we occasionally recommend extra insurance for more expensive items. All products are AS IS, WHERE IS, meaning that most are used, not new, and you need to read the descriptions and look at the pictures. Ask for more pictures, if you want!
Having said that, if something comes to you and is not what our pages described, or is obviously an error, let us know and we can work with you to correct it or refund your money.
