To put insurance on your item please choose the "Economy" shipping method. I always try to describe the items I sell as accurately and with any noticeable defects described. All items I sell are sold AS-IS whether New or Used unless otherwise posted in the listing. I will always post a good feedback after one has been left for us. Please let us know prior to leaving a bad feedback so we can try to accommodate your needs. S&H charge also helps offset Ebay Fees, Supplies, Etc..
