ABOUT CONDITION OF THE ITEM FOR SALE
Our elves are highly trained to inspect for damage of any type. If there are cracks, chips, or any other flaw, we DOCUMENT IT in photos AND/OR text. Additionally, there is a final inspection just prior to shipment, to ensure that no damage happened between the warehouse and the packing/shipping workbench. If we find any anomalies, you will receive an email just prior to shipment. Otherwise, you can assume that if we make NO mention of cracks, chips, flaws or other damage, then there is none, and there is no need to ask an additional question about it.
There may be dirt or soil on the item in the photo if the item is used. We do our best to clean up used items prior to shipment. Used items often show wear, and you can expect a rudimentary cleaning of your item, but we do not promise that used items will be spotless, or to an extreme level of restoration prior to shipment.
ABOUT HANDLING and SHIPPING TIME
says this on their website about shipping and handling charges:
“How reasonable were the shipping and handling charges?
• Remember that sellers may charge for the cost of the actual packaging materials, along with a reasonable handling fee to cover the seller’s time and direct costs associated with shipping.
• Keep in mind that for international transactions, buyers can be expected to pay duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees as required by country laws. If the seller offered free shipping, you'll see a note indicating a 5-star rating is appropriate.”
We charge a $3.00 handling fee when necessary, which we have found to cover most of our packages. Occasionally when we have an oversized package that requires more handling , additional bubble wrap and protective materials, or when we have to purchase oversized boxes and packaging for something that could take up to an hour to prepare for safe shipping, we may charge a higher handling fee. For most of those exceptional packages we don't charge over $5.00. We do our very best to keep our costs reasonable. We know there are people who might try to take advantage of you – but please be assured that we work hard every day to ship the safest, fastest and least expensive way possible. When we receive a request to reduce our shipping fees, this is requesting that we absorb the actual expenses somewhere else. Much of the proceeds from the sale of our items is returned to the owners of the items, after that, we pay our student and underemployed working staff and the cost of doing business – including and PayPal fees (which can add up to 15 to 21% of the total amount you paid including the shipping and does not include the separate monthly fees charges sellers for the privilege of selling on their site). For lower priced items, the margins remaining are equally very small.
We publish a 5 day handling time for shipping our packages – we maintain a very large shipping queue, and work on a first in first out system. We often have 50 to 60 packages and buyers waiting for their packages ahead of yours. We prepare each item for shipping carefully, and won't rush to get the job done if it means sacrificing the safe and secure shipment of your, or anyone's, item. If you have a need for us to rush your shipment, please let us know – otherwise your item will be in the queue as we normally handle all packages.
ABOUT SHIPPING CHARGES
We do not make up the shipping charges. We use the shipping calculator tool. This tool accepts our entries for the package – the weight and package dimensions, the carrier options – and looks at your zip code to calculate the shipping prices. The price you see on the screen includes our handling fee as part of that rate. If the shipping charge looked high, it is because that is what the carrier is charging. Shipping prices have continued to rise, just as the cost of fuel has risen dramatically. We have no control over the accuracy of the shipping calculator tool itself – we use the tool because insists it is a best practice to do so. If you believe it may be inaccurate, please do communicate your dissatisfaction about the tool with directly, as we have no control in that area.
