ABOUT PACKAGING

I am only too aware of the need to pack records properly having received several rare 78s in recent years in jig saw form and once received 32 x 78s that were just wrapped in bubble wrap with an address label stuck on. No comments needed on that one
I buy good quality stiff cardboard cut to size to send all records and this has been appreciated by many of the people that have bought from me in the past.

78s Are a completely different animal and need special care

I pack 78s between two polystyrene tiles 11 inches square and one inch thick and this is then placed in a strong cardboard box 13 inches square and four and a half inches deep with whatever packing is necessary. I have sent records all over the world in this way and I have not had one casualty to date.
These boxes will take approx 15 x 78s and approx 20 x LPs each and for larger quantities I simply tape two boxes together

ABOUT PAYMENT

Firstly all payments must be in UK pounds
You can make payment by Postal Order , Cheques drawn on a UK Bank or with Paypal through my email address which is .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
Cash can also be sent recorded and at your risk.

SHIPPING

I obviously have to cover my postage costs but try not to profit from them. The prices given are accurate for single items but records vary so much in weight it is difficult to be exact with multiple items until they are packed and weighed

I obtain proof of posting on every item and ship promptly on receipt of payment
It is very unusual for items to go astray but I am not responsible for lost items. For expensive items I recommend Recorded Delivery in the UK and International Signed For on Overseas parcels

Insurance is available if required, Please ask for quote

UK prices are for second class post

UK

45s 1-3 singles = £1.65 more than that I weigh each parcel
LPs Single LP = £2.80 Everything else I will pack and weigh

I can send approx 40 LPs for £14.00


78s 1 x 78 = £4.00 after that I will pack and weigh

I can send approx 30 x 78s for £14.00

Europe

45s 1 x 45 = £1.90 two or more I will weigh each package
LPs 1 x single LP = £4.00
78s 1 x 78 = £7.50

Because of the weight the most that I can send by airmail is 6 or 7x 78s depending on the weight but I can send 10kg by courier for £30.00 which is 30- 32 x 78s

Far East, USA and rest of world

45s 1 x 45 = £2.40 two or more I will weigh each package
LPs 1 x Lp = £6.00
78s 1 x 78 = £13.00

Because of the weight the most I can send by airmail is 6 or 7 x 78s depending on the weight. I can send larger amounts by courier but it is difficult to give exact quotes because 78s vary so much in weight . As with Europe the most economical number seems to be approx 30 x 78s

Recorded Delivery in the UK is an additional 75p up to 2 kg

International signed for is an additional £3.70
