The only postal option offered is the United States Postal Service, Priority or
Express mail. Insurance is highly recommended.
I will assist you on any needed. insurance claims but I cannot be responsible
for lost or damaged uninsured items.
International postage will likewise be provided solely by
the USPS but surface mail options are not provided as the delay in delivery
often results in disputes and anxiety on both ends. (International buyers
note if the packed weight exceeds 4 pounds, Global Priority Mail is not an
option. Also, for all international orders, the buyer must supply a phone number
for the customs form)
I pack in a paranoid fashion, double boxed, bubble
wrapped and often styrofoamed with shredded papered. The item is usually in a
separate plastic bag as well.
