I usually ship by Fedex Home Delivery, DHL, or Priority mail and I prefer to insure everything. The insurance is for your protection, not mine. Fedex is much cheaper than UPS and their delivery times are usually quicker too. DHL does a pretty good job too. Small miscellaneous items are shipped by parcel post or first class mail through the US Postal Service. If you have a special request concerning shipping, please email me before you bid and we'll work out the shipping. For payment, I use Paypal. Yes, they charge a few dollars. But they handle a lot of things for those few dollars. If you prefer a different form of payment, email me before you bid and we'll work something out.
