    Auction Terms & Conditions:    

The "Not-So-Fine-Print" Section

All payments in U.S. $$$. Nevada residents must add appropriate sales tax for their county. If you are the winning bidder, and live in Nevada, and don't know how much to add for sales tax, e-mail me and I will let you know how much sales tax amount is due.

SHIPPING & HANDLING: U.S. S&H is $12.99 via Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. Insurance (if desired) is additional based on the winning bid amount and will be offered when we e-mail you after the auction's end. Although our experience tells us that situations where insurance was necessary are rare, Rare-Plane Detective is not responsible for uninsured items after they are shipped. Items are usually shipped within two business days after receipt of payment. If I anticipate an unexpected delay, I will notify you by e-mail.

CANADIAN/INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: We are happy to accept your bid! Canadian Buyers pay $12.99 First Class Mail International S&H or $28.99 Priority Mail International S&H. All other International Buyers pay $21.99 First Class Mail International S&H or $42.99 Priority Mail International S&H.

Please note that the eBay automated payment systems have made it EXTREMELY difficult (if not dang-near impossible) to differentiate between International and Canadian shipping and handling payments. If you are a Canadian winning bidder, the S&H payment options you will be offered by eBay in the automated payment system will be filled-in for international S&H rates. I usually catch this situation and handle the appropriate refund quickly, but to be sure, please e-mail me a reminder of your location after making payment and I will be sure to refund the difference between the two rates.

Remember that the US Postal Service no longer offers any type of Economy Surface Mail rate for international shipping. Rare-Plane Detective cannot be responsible for international packages once they are mailed. Once a package is mailed, it is in the hands of both of our countries' respective Postal systems. Our mailing program files will constitute proof of mailing. Although it is the more expensive option, Priority Mail International shipping includes tracking for international orders. In the event that your package goes missing after mailing (a rare, but possible occurrence), if you choose First Class Mail international shipping, you accept responsibility for the package's fate, and understand and accept that there is no likely way to track or locate the package.

TO ALL BUYERS CONCERNING S&H RATES: Shipping and Handling rates include the following: actual postage, boxes (more so on international than U.S. orders), packing materials like blank newsprint, styrofoam peanuts and tape, addressing software and labeling materials, delivery to post office, and our packing person's time. Between wages, taxes and employment fees, approximately every FOUR MINUTES of the packing employee's time costs R-PD $1.00. And I can vouch that most orders take more than four minutes to carefully package so that it arrives in your hands in the same condition it left our warehouse. US buyers should also recognize that before eBay "automated" their payment systems, I was able to e-mail you and charge differing rates for the corresponding USPS Zones. Those days are unfortunately over and I must now charge a rate to cover costs to the furthest Zone from our location. Lately, it seems that some buyers have taken out their frustrations with S&H rates with less-than-appropriate Seller DSR ratings. If you accepted the advertised S&H rate by bidding on the item, and the item is well-packed and mailed out quickly, then the seller DESERVES a "5". Our S&H rates are plainly and exactingly stated. The time to decide that you are not happy with S&H rates is not when you are filling out the DSRs after the transaction. It is BEFORE you bid.

THE R-PD SATISFACTION GUARANTEE: All kits and items we sell are GUARANTEED to be COMPLETE (unless otherwise noted) and in the condition described in the listing. If, for some reason, we have failed to notice a flaw, please contact us immediately and we will offer several refund/return options.

We are continually placing new items for auction... CHECK OUT OUR SELLER'S LIST OFTEN!!! We are always happy to combine items purchased from Rare-Plane Detective for shipping whenever reasonably possible. Please let us know when you are intending to bid or purchase additional items so that we can anticipate shipping everything together. Payment by Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express and PayPal to be made by winning bidder within three days of notification of winning bid.

Thank you and GOOD LUCK bidding!
