Seller Terms

Automatic Cancellation Policy: Orders will be cancelled if payment is not received within 10 days.
IMPORTANT: Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, I can't ship to some countries. This will be reflected in the shipping policies.
Also because of the Covid-19 pandemic, shipments will most likely be delayed.

I prefer trades over selling items any day. If you don't have any money, but do have something nice to trade. I'm all ears.

Before ordering please do know that I try to grade items as accurately as possible. I don't do any special grading because some record comes from country X,Y,Z. Having said that: when your in doubt, ask for samples and pictures to see if it's up to standard.

I ship out every other day except on Sundays. Accurate shipment costs can be found at: . I use the same service in the little town I live to ship the records.

For shipment outside of the European Union I'm obliged to fill out a customs form. I am obliged to fill this out exactly as specified, as doing otherwise is considered fraud. Any custom fees that come your way because of this, is entirely your responsibility. I'm not doing any favors in this department.

Every parcel will be shipped including tracking. If the order is really expensive I might ask to consider insured and signed shipment. You can figure out the shipment costs by going to:

Last but not least, I'm just a dude in his 20s selling some records on the side, don't expect the Amazon/Ebay treatment. Keep it cool, be patient and enjoy the music. ✌️
