LDs are packed safely in custom mailing boxes, and cardboard sheets are included inside the box for additional protection. Discs are shipped outside of the jacket to prevent spine splits.
Shipping is from Tokyo, and basic airmail service is $14 for one LD with additional LDs in the same parcel adding $8 extra to the total (exact price may vary for gatefold sleeves, multi disc sets etc). Registered airmail is $4 extra per parcel and is recommended for valuable items as it includes insurance up to $50 and a signature on delivery.
For high value items, we recommend EMS airmail service. This includes FULL insurance and on-line internet tracking. EMS price for 1 LD starts at $19 to North America and $23 to Europe (other rates on request).
Shipping will be within 24 hours of payment being received (excluding Sundays).
LD PLAYBACK / TESTING
All laserdiscs have been personally play checked on a Pioneer CLD R6G player. Any playback or rot problems are noted on the 'notes' section (although we usually only stock items that play fine). Please note that due to the nature of LD technology occasional speckling may appear on places during playpack. LDs that are SEALED are sold 'as is' with no play check possible in order to preserve the sealed condition.
We can accept payment via PAYPAL, UK bank transfer (UK orders only) or cash ($US or Euros) via registered/insured airmail. Please indicate with your order how you want to pay, and I will confirm all necessary details with your order confirmation via e-mail.
