are required for some Countries eg USA, Japan, Australia, Norway, Switzerland etc.

Parcels to the UK and EU Zone 1 seem to arrive ok with only the occasional loss, ROW a few more go missing. If you want me to send your package with an 'International Tracked & Signed' option, I can do this but it will cost an extra £5. Please send me a message to organise this.

NB: if record is sent by standard post I will not be responsible for lost parcels. When a record/s fail to arrive, I will be happy to make a claim on your behalf at the Post Office but will not refund payment until I have received the refund. Please note, getting a refund takes ages so expect a long wait if I am making a claim.

If your parcel is a ROW delivery, I recommend that you use the International Tracked & Signed Delivery Option, to guarantee delivery.

Please contact me about this. Happy to do deals, negotiate with interested parties etc.
