Guarantee & Terms of Sale

Guarantee:  It is my goal to provide you with a quality working radio at a fair price.  Regarding cosmetics, some radios are refinished due to necessity, others look great as is.  Regarding electronics, my repair guru is retired from the NSA and has decades of experience (he is 82 years old and going strong!).  I bench test each sold radio prior to packing to confirm there are no new issues that need to be corrected.  All radios stated as working are guaranteed to work for 60 days after receipt.  If the radio fails to perform, please contact me and we will work together to solve the problem.  If necessary you may ship the radio back to me and I will have my repair guru repair it.  A buyer should never attempt a repair without contacting me first or the warranty will be voided!  Shipping expense back to me is the buyer's responsibility, return shipping of the radio to you is my responsibility.  There is no fee for the repair.

Sales and Payment:  I will hold a radio for five days when I receive the first email with an offer to buy.  I consider an offer to buy in your email the point of sale.  If full payment is not received within the five day period I consider the sale void, and the radio will be available for sale again.  I accept payment through PayPal, credit cards and checks.  Payment plus shipping must be deposited before we ship your radio to you.  Checks must clear my bank before shipping.  I will never provide or sell your personal information to anyone.  Credit card information is shredded and discarded after the charge is made and deposited.  Upon ordering, you will receive an invoice via email with cost plus shipping charges.  A receipt will arrive with the radio.

Shipping:  I have shipped many, many radios with great success.  I use heavy duty boxes, large bubble wrap, Styrofoam peanuts and take extra care to protect your purchase from the rough handling of the shipping companies.  I will try to find the best shipping price, but prefer FedEx Home Delivery.  Each shipment is sent fully insured with tracking.  We ship within three days of payment, often the same or next day.  If there is damage from shipping, the claim has to go through the shipper.  If we determine the damage is the shipper or buyer's fault, we can negotiate a repair price.  If an issue can't be resolved to the buyer's liking, we will offer a full refund minus shipping and insurance.  If the buyer pays the shipper directly, the buyer assumes all responsibility for insurance settlements due to damage while in transit.  When shipping a radio back to us, please follow our packing guidelines listed above.  If the radio is improperly packed, the refund will be denied.
