Auction Description

Check out my other items
Hi again everyone yes here we go again.
Seems to confusion over postage please let me explain:
for every £1.00 shipping i get from the buyer (This is a breakdown and not the actual cost of shipping)
Ebay & Paypal charge me 14.50p to receive it with paypal receiving fee & ebay charge me 9.5% fvf fee on it,yes thats what happens.
I pay 75p for plastic sleeve,Top quality cruciform & 2 stiffeners in order for the parcel to arrive in the condition it should do;So please understand these costs i incur before i even pay for the postage.
So thats not including tape,petrol etc etc that goes on top,so please bear this in mind before asking why shipping is expensive,i do not profit from shipping all i aim to do is make sure it does not cost me money i do not think thats unreasonable.

Iam sorry to have to do this but ive had quite a few non paying bidders promising me payment but they never pay for example last month alone 2000 pounds of non payments that are up to 2 months old,meaning ive not only got to pay ebay their 9.5% selling fees for items ive not been paid for but also alot of money sat in my stock thats not even sold.
    So as of now ive set my ebay to open a dispute 7 days after sale,im more than happy to hold on to post cheaper for you but please pay and tell me and i will hold the records and as you win more i will alter the postage to make it cheaper for you,im sorry to have to do this but i cannot swallow these costs any more.

Please be aware I never grade a record mint unless its sealed

Please note this auction finishes on the sunday the 29th January I will send combined invoices out either the night they finish or the morning after,iam going on vacation for 3 weeks on Saturday 4th febuary,so my last day of posting will be friady the 3rd after that it will be 3 weeks before I can post again.

Terms of sale please read carefully:
1:All records are graded under a Policemans home office torch NOT daylight so accurate visual description assured.I just cannot believe the amount of so called Mint records that are sold are genuine mint copies its impossible to get that many mint old copies!!! here i grade properly,and VG+ or VG does not mean its knackered,I grade in line with UK record collector grading system as follows:
Mt = Mint: Never been played or item still sealed. Cover and any extra items such as lyric sheet, booklet or poster (ie contents) are in perfect condition. 
Mt- = Near Mint: In brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. Cover and contents nearly perfect. 
Ex = Excellent: Shows some signs of being played but there is very little lessening in sound quality. Cover and contents might have slight wear and/or creasing. 
VG+ = Better than Very Good: Obviously been played but no significant deterioration in sound quality despite light surface marks. Very little wear and tear on cover and contents, without any major defects. 
VG = Very Good: Obviously been played many times but no major deterioration in sound quality despite noticeable surface marks and occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on cover or contents, without any major defects. 
Gd+ = Better than Good: Sound quality has deteriorated but with no distortion. Light scratches and occasional mild scratch. Cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges but not spine splits or discoloration. 
Gd = Good: Sound quality has noticably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion. Mild scratches. Cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration etc. 
Fair: Still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise - it may even jump. Cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced. 
Poor: Will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise etc. Cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing. 
2:Postage all records are packed in sturdy cruciforms and stiffeners,i do know about taking records out of sleeve and packing properly i do it all the time so please you do not need to waste your time sending me emails about it and 99% of records are posted within 24 hours very rarely 48 hours.UK postage tracking goes on order page that day,out of uk can take 3 or 4 days for tracking to go on order page as i use drop & go and only get foreign tracking once a week.
3:Partial refunds i will not get into a dispute over partial refunds,if you are unhappy please notify me and ill do all i can to sort it out but iam not being blackmailed with negative feedback if i do not give a partial refund
4:I do offer combined postage it is 50p for uk & 2 pounds for each additional record for europe and 3 pounds for rest of world.Please request total when finished & i will combine and send invoice,please do not pay it all & expect me to refund as i will not do it as ebay charge me 9% to recieve postage payments.Please note once the parcel weighs over 2 kilos the price changes please contact me for details on this.
5:Please note buyers are responsible for all custom duties/import charges if any in their own country its not my responsibility.
