PACKING & SHIPPING:
We take pride in our
careful packing. Unless otherwise noted, items are
properly placed in their original Märklin containers, carefully
wrapped in bubble-wrap and/or foam peanuts, and shipped in a
commercial-grade cardboard shipping box with extra room on all
six sides. Our shipping and insurance costs reflect our
best estimate of actual costs - we do not charge for packing
materials and do not make money on inflated shipping charges.
Shipping is via United States Postal Service
(USPS). We make every effort to ship within one business day
of receipt of confirmed payment.
To estimate shipping costs, use the
USPS Rate Calculator
available on-line on the Internet. If USPS does not offer insurance to the country of
destination, buyer assumes all risks associated with shipping to
that country. We will provide proof of shipment, but we can
not offer insurance if it is not available to us.
We look forward to hearing from you!
