Please read a sampling of my extraordinary response and then offer with confidence.
I make every effort to treat others as I wish to be treated. Here are my rules and terms:
I Guarantee items to match the description. Items that differ substantially from the description may be returned at buyer's expense for refund of offer price ONLY.
Items that substantially match the description but NOT the buyer's expectations MAY NOT be returned.
I make every effort to describe items accurately and completely and to be conservative in my claims. Some items, like auto stereo components may NOT be returned once the package has been opened and items described as NEW and that qualify for manufacturer's warranty may NOT be returned but should be delivered to manufacturer or manufacturer's authorized warranty service facility for repair in the event of failure during the warranty period. If you request it, I will furnish a retail bill of sale to support your warranty claim.
I NEVER charge "handling charges" or any other bogus added fees or Sales Tax. My "shipping" charges DO include cost of packing material and are averaged so a few buyers pay less than my actual cost, and a few somewhat more. Shipping
Charges for lower 48 by my choice of delivery method are quoted at the Bottom of the page. I assume buyer will be on the opposite coast when I estimate shipping and reserve the right to charge less if buyer is much closer. Shipping to Alaska and Hawaii are usually higher so please ask for quotation before offerding.
Pickup:Item may be picked up at Interface, 660 Main Street, Keene, NH 03431 except in sales of items so large or heavy that they are retained by the owner. In those cases, payment is made to me but pickup is from location of item. Location and instructions for getting there will be furnished to winner. If you Pick the item up NO shipping charges or sales tax will be due.
Options: I prefer to ship lightweight items by mail and heavier items by UPS ground for lowest cost but will entertain requests to ship by other methods if buyer is willing to pay the additional cost. UPS requires a street address and will NOT deliver to a PO box so buyers lacking a street address may have to pay additional cost for delivery by mail. (and insurance, if desired)
International shipments are usually shipped by parcel post (lowest cost) and buyer has the option of air or surface transport. Very lightweight items are always mailed via Air Mail. Postal rules limit weight and box size and vary by destination country, so some items MUST be shipped by commercial shipper. In those cases I utilize UPS. I'll be happy to quote shipping outside the lower 48 on request.
I pack professionally using sturdy cartons, padded envelopes, and ample quantities of foam peanuts and/or bubble wrap to insure that items I ship arrive undamaged and so have VERY few items damaged in shipping. I double box high value items to conceal the contents from prying eyes. When practical, I re-use packing materials in an effort to minimize environmental impact and keep material cost down.
Postal insurance is expensive so I don't insure low value items (under $100) shipped by parcel post but UPS provides free insurance for the first hundred dollars value so I ALWAYS insure items shipped by UPS.
I offer the option of insurance to international customers who request it and are willing to pay the additional cost.
I offer a wide range of payment options including:
Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover charge cards and PAYPAL (Both bank and card funded), EFT. EFT payment must be received at least 3 days prior to picking up item. If you have any questions about these terms, please call or email me.
Customers in the United States and Canadian wishing to pay with a charge card, may call me with card information subject to the condition that the shipping address furnished MUST match the billing address for the card. I will NOT ship to an address differing from the billing address.
International customers (except Canadians) must pay with either EFT or by PayPal.
I do NOT accept COD orders.
Items paid for with secured funds will normally be shipped on the 1st business day following receipt of funds. Items paid for by EFT will ship 3 days after receipt of funds by my bank.
