I will be happy to do free local pickup for any items, especially larger items.
Furniture items to large to ship USPS will be listed for local pickup only. I will be happy to consider shipping options outside the local area if a buyer sends my their zip code. Because shipping on furniture can be very expensive and because credit card payments may be difficult to refund, I will attach a high shipping cost to all furniture items and remove or adjust the shipping once I am contacted by a local buyer or a buyer who has supplied their zip code and approves shipping costs.
I make every effort to ship within 1-2 business days.
I will generally insure an item only if buyer requests it, and buyer pays for the insurance.
Most often my shipping is at or even a little below actual cost of postage, but for those times that I make a dollar or so on postage, it goes toward packaging expenses. If I ever miscalculate shipping by more than a dollar or so in my favor, I will be happy to refund the difference.
My preferred methods of payment are direct checkout and Paypal. I will accept cash for local pickup items. If you want to purchase an item but have to wait for a paycheck or something, I am usually willing to reserve an item temporarily.
Returns & exchanges
Refund of purchase price only, within 14 days. Please notify me first if an item is being returned, and please WAIT FOR A REPLY from me before returning item. Occasionally I can come up with a solution that means less or no return shipping for the buyer. Thanks!
I generally prefer not to ship internationally, but if you want me to check on international shipping for a particular item, I may be willing to do so.
