Shipping/Handling/Insurance Policy

I use the USPS to ship. I will ship with the UPS ONLY if the item is very large and requires a large box. UPS is a 20+ mile drive for me. (Fed –Ex is 56+) I live in a remote area. As such I am not able to ship overnight with any service. Second –Day USPS priority is as good as it gets from here. I would be delighted to combine shipping on 2 or more items! I try very hard not to over charge for shipping. If it comes out that I have I will and have refunded overages to my client. If the package is very large I do add a small charge for packing materials. I am an excellent packer and use generous amounts of bubble wrap and popcorn. . . Insurance is necessary for all purchases over $50.00 If you choose not to insure items that are less that $50 you do so at your own risk. I cannot be held responsible for items once they have left my care. Any item over $200 will require a signature confirmation.
The ONLY insurance available for international shipping is with USPS priority expedited service. It is VERY expensive but if you wish to have insurance I will be happy to do that for you. Less expensive but allowing some assurance is registered mail which requires a signature and is much less expensive.
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS I WILL HAPPILY QUOTE SHIPPING CHARGES FOR YOU.PLEASE WRITE TO ME IF YOU WANT A QUOTE BEFORE YOU MAKE A PURCHASE ****IMPORTANT**** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS ***MUST*** PAY WITH PAYPAL. AT THIS TIME I AM UNABLE TO SHIP TO THE FOLLOWING COUNTRIES: MEXICO, ITALY IRAN, ANY NATION ON THE US GOVERNMENT EMBARGO LIST. IF I CANNOT SHIP WITH INSURANCE TO YOUR NATION, I CANNOT SHIP THE ITEM.

I do not refund shipping costs and non-recoverable fees paid through Paypal, for instance.
