What Goes On?
I only use four grades in my grading: NM, VG+, VG, and G. The only exception is a sealed album which is presumed to have vinyl in mint condition. My NM grading means that the vinyl looks and plays as though it is the first time out of the sleeve. The VG+ rating is used on any album that plays great but has one or two small defects. It may have a pop here and there or some occasional background static. On a VG album you can expect that, typically, this album will play great, but you’ll see more defects on this than your VG+ rated album. Most often the VG rated album may even play well enough to be graded VG+, but the color or blemishes drop the grading. Likewise, you may occasionally find an album that looks almost NM but the sound quality just isn’t there. That’s why I play every album first, because this does happen. In this case the vinyl will be graded VG. Very occasionally I will list an album with a grade of G. This is one where I consider the collectible value of the album to be great enough that the copy being presented is worth having as a filler copy.
Canada shipping is calculated based on weight using US Postal Service rates. Combined shipping is also welcomed here and does result in significant per-album cost savings. Canada shipping rates have gone up dramatically. The first album will be shipped for $16. Additional albums will be shipped for $4 per album, with up to five albums able to be shipped before we need to use International Priority shipping. At that point we will work together on final determination of shipping cost.
The Canada cost determination also applies for all other International shipping, except that the first album is shipped for $21 and each subsequent is just an additional $5.00.
All albums will be shipped in specially designed album hard cardboard mailers with a cardboard insert to prevent damage upon opening. The vinyl is removed from the cover and presented in a new poly sleeve. I am committed to one day turnaround on shipments. If I receive payment before 7:00 AM Central Time I will package and ship that same day. Payment by Paypal is preferred.
Thank you for looking and please contact me with any questions.
