How do I know what the total shipping cost will be?
I cannot use flat rate shipping due to the nature of items sold here. Rates are determined by Zip Code & weight. A $0.65 Delivery Confirmation Fee and a $1.00 Material/Handle Fee for most items, will be added to actual shipping cost. Larger items which require more packing materials will have a slightly larger Material/Handle Fee and $0.65, added to the actual ship cost. I will include the weight and size of the item for sale, in the description.
To find the approximate Ship/Material/Handle cost:
**You can visit www.usps.com/ . Then Calculate "Approximate" cost based on your Zip Code, weight of item and size (provided in item description).
**Please remember there will be a $0.65 Delivery Confirmation fee and a small Material/Handle fee added to the actual Shipping Cost.
What kind of materials are used for packing?
Items will be packed to help ensure safe arrival to Buyer's address. I use plenty of Bubble Wrap, Peanuts and/or Packing Paper. Some of the larger and more fragile items may also be packed with Styrofoam for added protection. Insurance is not required unless stated as such in Item Description. I do strongly recommend insurance as I have no control once it leaves my hands. Thank you.
