Shipping Rates and Information
Our shipping rates are based on two things: 1) Actual postage is charged by weight, not by pieces; and, 2) the more records you buy, the more you’ll
save on shipping. We don’t pad our invoices with bogus shipping costs just to screw you out of a few bucks. We use the actual finished package weight, and
sometimes extra items don’t add enough weight to go into the next postal price category.
All records are shipped in a corrugated cardboard box with corrugated cardboard pads. Additionally, all records will come in a protective clear poly
outer sleeve and a solid paper inner sleeve. Original inner sleeves that have splitting will be replaced to protect the vinyl, but are included with
the item as part of the original package. All 7” records will also have inner sleeves and clear poly outer sleeves, even the ones that weren’t issued
with them when they were new.
These rates are based on standard-weight records in standard sleeves; other factors such as heavyweight vinyl, book inserts or deluxe “box-set”
packaging may increase your shipping weight slightly. A double album counts as 2 LPs, a triple album counts as 3 LPs and a 10” record is counted as 1

Please contact us for prices on shipping multiple items, since international postage goes up with every ounce of weight. Also, as the winning bidder,
please wait for our invoice before paying for your items – the international shipping calculator often makes mistakes and over-charges. If you require
insurance or expedited shipping, please contact us for a price quote before you bid or buy, since the high price for these services is often a shock.
We are happy to take a return for any item that we've made a mistake about describing. Generally speaking, returns will be honored only if the item
doesn’t match the listing description. Remember that VG+ does not mean NM, and NM is not New. We grade conservatively with the Goldmine
Standard, and may deny a refund based solely on differing grading criteria. Refunds can also be denied if the item is damaged during the return
shipment due to insufficient packaging by the buyer.
