You can pay online via a secure web page, provided by Paymentsense, after receiving my invoice, or you can ask me to charge your card. If you want me to charge your card please tell me the number, the expiry date, the start date, the issue number (if any) and the Security Number (the last three digits, on the back of the card, above your signature).
2) Or you can pay by bank transfer. Ask me for my bank details. There is a small bank charge for overseas bank transfers.
3) Or you can pay by cheque, or postal order, or cash in £s in a registered letter. I can also accept cash in US Dollars or Euros, but there is an extra fee payable.

POSTAGE & PACKING
UK: 1 or 2 LPs: £5.30, 2 to 4 LPs in a boxed set: £5.80, 3 to 7 LPs: £5.80, Sent by Royal Mail.
2 or more boxed sets of LPs usually weigh over 2kg so are sent by UPS (see below)
8 -12 LPs: £9.50, tracked, no insurance. 8 - 12 LPs £13.00, tracked, with full insurance . Sent by UPS.
13 LPs or more. £11.00, tracked, no insurance. 13 LPs or more. £14.50, tracked, with full insurance . Sent by UPS.
You will receive information about the tracking by email from DSV.
If you want me to use a different carrier, please ask.
Parcels of 1-7 LPs are sent by Royal Mail with no extra insurance. For small parcels of 17 LPs that are valuable (up to £500) I can use Royal Mail Special Delivery, then P&P is £9.75 for 1 LP, £11.50 for 2-3 LPs (must be under 1kg), £13.75 for 4-7 LPs (must be under 2 kg). Please enquire for higher levels of insurance.
Overseas: £3.50 (max) charge per parcel for packing, plus airmail postage at cost. I use small packets (under 2 kg) if this gives a substantial saving. I recommend the signed/tracked service for small packets, at an extra cost of under £5.00 (The cost varies according to weight & destination). The signed/tracked service gives each parcel a tracking number & should prevent a parcel being lost. Larger parcels are sent by UPS, at very reasonable rates. The parcels are tracked and you will receive email information about the tracking from DSV. The post & packing charge for larger parcels can include insurance of up to £1,500.
I give 10% discount on large orders. Large orders must total over £1,000 AND contain at least 25 items. I will also give 10% discount for orders of 50 items or more, even if the total is less than £1,000
I am happy to be able to say that I have had very, very few complaints over the condition of any of the LPs I have supplied, no doubt because of the care I take over grading. However, if you should feel that the condition of a record you receive does not match my grading or description, please contact me immediately. Please do not return any LPs before you have heard from me in reply. All complaints should be made within 7 days of your receiving the LPs. In the event of any returns, I am afraid that I cannot normally undertake to refund any payment made in respect of the optional record cleaning service or postage. LPs for return should be securely packed, preferably in their original packaging.
