Shipping - Insurance Cost
We normally mail packages within three business days of payment. Our s/h charge includes INSURANCE on your TOTAL COST on all shipping options, including postage (unlike the Postal Service), if your item is lost or damaged in shipment.
Note to International buyers: Customs, Duties, and Import taxes are your responsibility and not covered in the shipping or price of item. For customs purposes, the value of the item is the price you paid for it; this cannot, by law, be altered.
We are NOT responsible for lost packages IF the tracking number shows that it was delivered to the address you provide.
Also be aware that First Class International Shipments can take up to 30 days for delivery and time spent in Customs. If it takes longer than that, we will contact the USPS and put a trace on it. It’s extremely rare that packages don’t arrive, but they’re often later than you might expect, particularly if you are anxious to receive it.
Most of our packages cost about $6.00 s/h and insurance for USA shipments. Very light international shipments are mailed for about $18.00 s/h and insurance, while most of our items ship internationally for around $22.00 s/h and insurance. We do ship all working items with sound by Priority Mail in a box to keep the mechanism from being damaged or the battery run down in shipment, so even light weight musical items will have a higher s/h than you might expect.
The exact shipping cost based on total weight of your order is shown during the Checkout process, after you provide the delivery address.
We charge 9% Sales Tax ONLY when items are delivered TO Alabama, USA.
