ABOUT US & OUR DONATED MERCHANDISE... -WHO WE ARE: A small online merchandising team dedicated to our Goodwill's mission. We do not claim expertise in any particular field, but strive to describe items accurately and as they appear to us. We are all well-versed in eCommerce best practices, so you may rest assured knowing we'll do our best to make your experience with us great! -OUR ITEMS HAVE BEEN USED BEFORE: Most items we receive are in need of a proper cleaning and may contain common signs of wear (surface scratching/scuffing/minor blemishing/etc.) -REGARDING ANY ITEMS REQUIRING POWER: Electronic items that appear safe to be plugged in or tested with batteries are tested for power-on status only; we cannot guarantee that these types of items will completely function as intended. -CAN I BUY JUST ONE ITEM IN THAT POSTING? Unfortunately, no...all orders are shipped as they are advertised/pictured/sold and no part of any posting can be removed/omitted prior to shipping. -SORRY, NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: At this time, we only ship to customers residing within the continental United States, excluding Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico. We regret any disappointment this may cause. ALL ABOUT SHIPPING * FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS... -HOW DO I GET A SHIPPING DISCOUNT ON MULTIPLE ITEMS? Simply combine all eligible items into your cart at checkout; our system is set up to automatically adjust the shipping, charging the highest shipping first, then adding $1 or $2 for each additional eligible item (depending upon size; most items fall into the $2 category). Further, if you are not seeing your adjustment, please contact us before you pay so we can make sure you get your discount. -WHICH ITEMS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR COMBINED SHIPPING? One specific item type that cannot be combined are guitars. Due to size/dimensions, other larger items may not travel well together and/or be safe for shipment in one box. Please be aware that larger items are costly to ship and may not be eligible for our multi-item discount; if you come across an item that has shipping costs attached to it, that is most likely why. Our team determined the actual cost to ship prior to listing that item, thus the quote is the actual shipping cost. One last note: items listed as Buy It Now require immediate payment and are NOT eligible for combined shipping.-DO YOU OFFER FREE SHIPPING? -In short, we do *not* offer free shipping; on occasion we may offer a promotion code to our newsletter subscribers as an incentive. Shipping is never really free; shipping costs are ever-increasing and must be paid for by someone. Further, they can be costly depending on how large/heavy a package is and where that package is being shipped to. Although we previously offered free shipping when we first started our eBay journey, we can no longer offer this as we are a very small operation which does not ship in bulk.-WHICH CARRIERS DO YOU USE AND WILL I HAVE TO SIGN FOR MY PACKAGE? -We use both the USPS and UPS. Since we offer discounted set shipping tiers on our reasonably-sized items (based on box size needed), we reserve the right to select which carrier is most ideal for each order. However, if you have specific carrier needs, please email us prior to paying so that we may ensure the proper adjustments are made. -When an order exceeds $300 in value, the package will automatically be shipped via UPS and the signature confirmation service will be added at no additional cost to you; please ensure your ship-to address can accept UPS packages and adjust your schedule accordingly in order to sign for the high-value package. -DO YOU USE THE BETTER CARRIER SERVICES OR THE SUBPAR ONES LIKE MOST DO NOWADAYS? -We aim for the majority of our packages to be shipped insured, therefore use UPS Ground and USPS Priority Mail in most instances. All media-related items under $50 in value are typically sent via USPS Media Mail. However, in cases where the ship-to address is so remote that we end up paying significantly out-of-pocket, a lower-grade service (such as Parcel) may be used as a last resort. We currently do NOT use the slowest and non-insured services such as Mail Innovations and SurePost, so please rest assured. -I NEED THIS ORDER FAST: CAN I REQUEST EXPRESS SHIPPING? -Sure! Simply contact us via email *before paying* with your request. We will determine the actual shipping cost and adjust your invoice accordingly. -WHEN WILL YOU SHIP MY ORDER? -Orders are handled in the order in which they were received and typically ship out within 3 business days; please remember that Saturday and Sunday are not considered business days. -During peak shipping times, your order could be delayed by up to 7 business days (unless you notify us of your payment for express shipping). -Once a package leaves our facility, we have no control over how long delivery will take as that is in control of the specific carrier. -I WAS GIVEN PERMISSION TO RETURN MY PURCHASE BECAUSE I JUST DO NOT LIKE IT ...WHO PAYS FOR SHIPPING? -As stated above, unless we are at-fault for the return, you are responsible for the cost of return shipping. We will not pay the return shipping costs for items being returned due to buyer's remorse or general dissatisfaction of an item that had an accurate posting. -DO YOU CHARGE A HANDLING FEE? We charge a small handling fee to aid in covering some of our material expenses necessary to prepare your order for safe travels; this cost is either added into the set shipping cost or is visible when we select calculated shipping (for larger, more-costly boxes). We also purchase better-quality supplies and so do not profit from the handling fee. -A $10 handling fee is assessed to full-sized guitars in order to cover the actual box/packing materials expense we incur. -A slightly higher handling fee is assessed to larger, more expensive boxes. BUSINESS HOURS... -7:00am to 2:30pm EST Monday - Thursday and 7:00am to 12:00pm EST Friday. -We are not available on weekends and all major holidays. -Emails submitted over the weekend will be handled the following working business day, in the order in which they were received. LOCAL PICKUP FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS... -I DO NOT SEE THE OPTION TO SELECT LOCAL PICKUP...HOW DO I REQUEST IT? -Due to the overwhelming amount of out-of-state customers who failed to realize that we are not in close driving distance to them and the amount of full refunds that resulted, the local pickup selection is no longer available at checkout; simply email us with your request for an invoice for local pickup. Once we have emailed you the invoice, you will be able to click on the link and pay without any charge for shipping/handling (state sales tax may apply). -IS THERE A COST? -There is no cost for this service when your order(s) will be prepared for pickup with little to no packaging materials (some of which may have been previously used). Should you prefer to have your order(s) packaged with non-recycled/new materials, please email us *prior to payment* so that we can assess the materials cost and adjust your invoice accordingly. -AM I ABLE TO PAY ON SITE? -No...we are not a retail store location and do not have a standard credit card processing setup. -CAN I JUST SHOW UP ANYTIME? -No...because we are a small operation and are notified of payments the day after payments are received, appointments must be made in advance. You cannot pay from your device on site and expect your order to be ready that same day. After receiving our revised invoice then completing payment, please email us with your preferred pickup date/time. Upon pickup, you will be asked to show a valid ID and will be required to sign for your order(s). -WHAT ARE MY PICKUP APPOINTMENT TIME OPTIONS? -You may schedule your pickup anytime between 7:00am and 2:00pm EST, Monday - Thursday. Pickups are not available on Friday due to our limited operating hours. -CAN A FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND PICKUP ON MY BEHALF? -Yes...providing you notify us of his or her name when you request the service. Their name will be noted on the order(s) and that person will then have to show a valid ID in order to pickup your order(s). -HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO PICKUP MY ORDERS? -We allow 14 days from the payment date for pickup. Any orders not picked up within that timeframe will be relisted and, as a one-time courtesy, a refund will be granted (less 10%). A block may be placed on the account of those who create a habit of requesting the local pickup service then failing to pickup within 14 days. -I WANT TO PICKUP MY ORDER BUT PAID FOR SHIPPING BY MISTAKE! MERCY, PLEASE! -We understand that mistakes happen and are willing to work with you. Should you experience this, please email us and request a one-time courtesy refund of the shipping paid. We only ask that you proceed with extreme caution next time you are checking out (as we cannot extend this courtesy more than once). PAYMENT INFORMATION... -DOUBLE-CHECK BEFORE YOU SUBMIT! -Ensure you are in agreement with all details of your order before completing payment as we cannot make changes to an invoice once payment is received. -PAYPAL ONLY: We accept payment via PayPal only (Visa/Mastercard/Discover/American Express/bank issued debit card). -Payment must be received within 7 days of the auction end date. -Failure to complete payment within 7 days will automatically result in eBay opening up an Unpaid Item Case (UPI) on our behalf; note that this is automated and any email notices you may receive are coming directly through them, not us. -NO PACKING SLIPS HERE!: -In an effort to reduce waste, we do not include packing slips inside our packages; we respectfully ask that you refrain from requesting this service, as we do not have the capabilities to do so. -WE ARE IN PENNSYLVANIA! -Pennsylvania state sales tax of 6% will apply automatically to all applicable orders purchased by customers residing in Pennsylvania. REFUNDS & RETURN REQUESTS INFORMATION... -DID YOU RECEIVE YOUR ORDER DAMAGED? -Please do *not* open up a return case in eBay; instead email us immediately. On rare occasion, orders are damaged in transit; should this unfortunate event happen, please email us within 7 days, providing the details of how you received your order and photos of the damage to start the refund process. If a claim is applicable, we will file the claim on your behalf; starting the claim on your end will result in a delayed refund. -DID THE CARRIER RETURN YOUR ORDER TO US BY MISTAKE? -This does occur from time to time. Unless we made an error when processing your shipping label, we cannot be held liable for packages returned by the carrier; please ensure your address is valid/accurate to avoid unfortunate delivery problems. -When an order is returned to us at fault of you or the carrier, we will email a new invoice for you to remit payment for the cost of reshipment. You will be allowed 14 days to follow through with payment; failure to do so will indicate your desire to donate the entire order back to us for relisting. You may be eligible for a one-time courtesy refund, less 10%; please contact us to request this. -DID WE MAKE A MISTAKE? -You may open up a return request through eBay should you ethically deem an order as significantly not as described against our posting; please open up an eBay return request to start the process in expressing your concerns. From there we will review all details of the situation and take further action. When we are at fault, we take immediate action to make it right. -CLOTHING NOT FITTING LIKE YOU PERCEIVED? -Although we provide measurements on most of our clothing items, we understand sometimes they still may not fit right (due to having been previously washed/worn/etc.) That being said, we allow 14 days for you to request authorization for a return. Please note that return shipping will be at your expense. In the event that any item received back shows evidence of having been worn/damaged (original tags cut off, blemishing that was not present when it left our facility, etc.), a refund will become null and void and the damaged item(s) will be returned to you. -JUST NOT HAPPY WITH YOUR ORDER? -Although most of our merchandise is sold as-is, we are a team of integrity and review each request on a case-by-case basis; returns may be subject to a 10% restocking fee and return shipping will be at your expense. Simply open up a return request case in eBay and we will work with you from eBays returns system. -WE INSPECT EVERYTHING! -All returned orders are carefully reviewed to ensure the contents are what we sent and that they are in the same condition. In the event that alternate items are returned, your refund will become null and void. -DO NOT JUST SEND IT BACK! -Unauthorized returns are considered a donation and will be relisted; a refund is then null and void. -DO THE RIGHT THING!... -Customers who file a fraudulent credit card dispute will be permanently blocked from our eStore and we will challenge the false claim.
