Please read this page carefully. Purchase from our store constitutes agreement to all of the terms outlined on this page.
All records are graded visually using the Goldmine scale (M, M-, VG+, VG, VG-, G, Poor) unless otherwise described.
Keep in mind that used records are previously owned and played; we cannot and do not guarantee that a used record, regardless of grade, will play as quietly as a new one.
We’d be happy to play grade any LP upon request.
Our prices include free shipping, insurance and delivery confirmation to any address within the United States. We will send a tracking number via email once your order has shipped.
For security reasons, we ship only to your PayPal or credit card billing address if you are paying via PayPal.
For free shipping on U.S. orders, select the Media Mail ($0.00) option at checkout. On U.S. orders of $400 or more, the free shipping will include Priority Mail.
While shipping on all U.S. orders is free, Media Mail shipping typically takes anywhere from 3-10 days to arrive and on rare occasions can take several weeks. If you live in the U.S. and would like faster shipping, you may select a faster (paid) option at checkout.
We ship via the United States Postal Service. Orders of more than $750 will require a signature upon delivery.
We are not responsible for lost or stolen items that have been confirmed as delivered by the Postal Service. If you need any assistance filing a missing or stolen package report, please contact us and we will do everything in our power to assist you.
Should a package be returned to us as undeliverable, we will refund the price of the record(s) you have purchased. Postage is non-refundable.
Foreign postage will be calculated at checkout; PayPal requires shipment via Priority Mail for merchandise valued at $400 or more, though faster options will usually be offered at checkout.
The least expensive shipping option, First Class Package International service, does not permit the purchase of insurance. If you choose this option, your package will not be insured. We will not be held responsible for damage or loss if you choose this shipping option.
Merchandise will be declared at full value for customs purposes and shipped fully insured (where insurance is permitted by postal regulations).
We will insure the package for the full value when possible. Some countries have limits on insurance value; if the value of the package exceeds the maximum amount of permitted insurance, we will insure for the maximum amount allowed but we will not be responsible for losses that exceed that amount.
We cannot declare low values for customs purposes. That is forbidden by U.S. law. The buyer is responsible for any and all customs/import duties and fees.
All merchandise will be packed in new, appropriate mailers with cardboard stiffeners to further secure your purchase.
We use Whiplash mailers with corner protection for most shipments; high-value items may be double boxed at our discretion.
Records will be removed from covers prior to shipping, except for records which are still sealed. Those will be shipped unopened, but will be secured in a way that ensures that the seal will not break during transit.
While we pack our records well, we do occasionally get requests for an order to be shipped double boxed, with one box inside the other in order to provide additional protection during shipping.
Double-boxing is not necessary, but we offer it as an option for an additional fee.
The option for double boxing is available at checkout for an additional $10 fee to cover the costs of packing materials and extra shipping charges.
