Things we get asked a lot!
Email Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: What forms of payment do you accept?
A: We accept credit card payments through Paypal as well as International Money Orders and Certified Cheques. We do not accept wire transfers or personal checks.
Q: Are items guaranteed?
A: Absolutely. All sealed items are guaranteed to be as they should be. Used vinyl is guaranteed to be as described. If either of these is not true, return the item for a full refund or a replacement copy if available. The only items sold without our return policy are used 8 track tapes and bargain bin used vinyl. They are sold as is.
Q: Why do you not use the Goldmine system when rating used records?
A: This is a personal choice that we made, based on bad experiences we have had when buying records online. The Goldmine guidelines, while widely recognized, we find are very open to interpretation. We have bought many NM and VG++ records that were clearly faulted. It seems one man's VG is another man's NM. So we've chosen instead to actually describe the record in detail, as well as assigning it an A to C rating. (see the guide) All records are inspected and clear details of any faults are listed at that time. Of course, if a record has been misgraded, our guarantee and return option are in place.
Q: What shipping time should I expect?
A: We ship our orders three times weekly. You order will be processed and shipped within 48 hours of recieving payment. Average shipping times are 1 week within Canada, 2 weeks to the USA and 3-4 weeks for most of the rest of the world. Please remember that when dealing with international delivery, as well as multiple postal systems and customs agencies, that times can vary somewhat.
Q: Do I have to pay sales tax?
A: Yes indeed. We are a registered Canadian business and must collect and remit tax on all sales and services. These taxes only apply on Canadian orders and are as follows:
Within Manitoba: 5% GST 8% PST
Alberta, Saskatchewan, Quebec, PEI, B.C. & the Territories: 5% GST
