SHIPPING INFORMATION

I will be sending your item from San Diego, CA 92116.

I normally send most items, which can be packed in a box measuring up to 12 x 12 x 9, by USPS Priority Mail with full value insurance, and delivery confirmation.

Larger items are usually sent by ground service.

I can take very large and heavy items to Greyhound, which can ship larger items fast and economically, but you will need to pick it up at your local Greyhound Package Express station. Package Express services are not available at all greyhound bus stations, so you do need to find out w your nearest Greyhound Package Express station is located. I do charge $20 to take large items downtown to our mail Greyhound station, to cover the fuel, and time required to do this.

If you want your item shipped by another method, please email me with special instructions.

Please note that all shipping cost estimates are just that...estimates, as the item is not actually packed until it has been sold, and it's destination is known.

Our shipping cost estimates are normally accurate, but, it may cost more to ship your item than we had thought. If this happens, you will be responsible to pay the additional shipping costs, and we will provide you with proof of the additional shipping costs upon request.

If we discover that we have over charged you on shipping costs, we will refund the difference.

PACKING AND HANDLING CHARGES

As you know, shipping costs have been increasing these days. I don't attempt to make money on packing and shipping, but I do want to break even on providing these services.

I do charge a minimum of $2, with the cost increasing depending on the size of the box, and materials required to pack the item properly.

The larger and more fragile an item, the more it costs me to pack it properly. If an item is fragile, I pack it to survive the shipping according to the accepted standards required by the shipper, and also to the best of my ability.

On expensive fragile items, we may need to double box them. This will require additional labor and material costs. I would rather pack your item properly to make sure that the item arrives intact, rather than to deal with a claim.

I care about the survival of the items I sell on eBay, and I want them to arrive in the same condition as when sent.

In compliance with Ebay guidelines, we will now be requiring a signature confirmation on domestic shipping, and a return receipt with international shipping. These cost an extra $2.20. Also, insurance is not determined and added into the cost until after purchase.
