BIDDERS AND BUYERS PLEASE READ!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR YOU
If an item you received from me does not meet your expectations please contact me immediately! My private phone number will be included with your shipped item. I'm available 7am to 11pm, 7 days a week, West Coast time. If you have any questions or issues, please email or call me before leaving feedback so that I can take care of it to your satisfaction.
I make every effort to ship within 3 BUSINESS days (I can't ship on weekends) of receiving payment. I do not charge for shipping, I just collect it for the carrier. It's the carrier that you are paying, and I just pass the money along to them. You can verify the costs by contacting them. Shipping costs are always based on the weight of the item and the size of the box. All carriers have a premium added to large boxes, normally 103" by adding one side of the height, width and depth to come up with the total. Insurance is at your option. If you decline to pay for insurance, and the package is damaged, you will have to deal with the carrier to submit a claim.
Make sure you verify with the eBay shipping calculator for shipping costs BEFORE bidding and bid only if you are satisfied with my shipping timeline and the carrier's costs.
I use UPS or FED-EX GROUND "standard shipping" for larger items and for smaller items I use US Postal Service Priority Mail for items that can fit inside one of their flat rate boxes. I always choose the cheapest method to ship your item unless you request another method which I would be glad to provide at my cost.
If my auction states "No International Shipping", it means exactly that, so please don't ask me to change it. If it states "International Shipping OK" means that you will pay for all shipping costs and I will ship anywhere in the world.
All international (including Canada) outside the US shipments are by USPS "Priority Mail International". International bidders are responsible for all customs fees. I will not mark items on customs forms as gifts or declare a value lower than the winning bid (it's illegal!) so please don't ask me.
Ebay is very strict on allowing sellers to remain with Ebay based on their feedback and detailed seller ratings numbers. Even a 4 star rating is considered by eBay to be a problem. Please always leave a 5 star rating and I will do the same for you. I strive to have all my buyers be 100% satisfied. If you have any questions or issues after receiving your item, PLEASE contact me prior to leaving feedback so that I may address them. As I mentioned, you will receive my phone number with the item. As a seller, my policy is that I provide feedback after the buyer leaves feedback.
NON-PAYING WINNING BIDDERS:
I have been experiencing an increase in non-paying bidders. Once an auction ends, I have to pay auction fees based on the amount of the winning bid, REGARDLESS of whether or not you, the buyer, makes a payment or not. When a buyer fails to pay for an item, the only recourse I have is to file a "Non Paying Bidder" action with Ebay to have my auction fees refunded. Ebay allows 4 days for a buyer to make payment before they allow sellers to file a "Non Paying Bidder" action. If I do not receive payment within 4 days, a "Non Paying Bidder" complaint will automatically be opened by Ebays automated seller assistant software. PLEASE, do not bid if you do not plan to pay.
I accept only Paypal.
I ship ONLY to Paypal verified shipping address provided to me by Paypal. It is the responsibility of the winning buyer to ensure that the shipping address listed on their account is current and correct. I will not be responsible for a shipment being sent to the wrong address if the buyer provides an incorrect address on their Paypal account. Please verify that your ship to address is correct before bidding.
Please do not send notes, emails, etc asking me to ship to a different address than what is provided in your Paypal account (like ship to your cousin, or to Nigeria :-).
If you have any questions please contact me prior to bidding. I am a retired partially disabled Viet Nam Veteran (US Army, 1966-1969) and a one person operation and will answer all inquiries in as timely a manner as soon as I possibly can.
BY BIDDING ON AND/OR WINNING THIS AUCTION, YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD EVERYTHING IN THIS DISCLOSURE.
