BOOK SIZES IN DESCRIPTION
POSTAGE is charged at cost and we try for the safest and most economical method.We are happy to quote on postage .
The main concern for customers is packing .”Please pack this properly” is the unifying theme.
We would like to assure all our customers that we pack our books well.A bit like a pass the parcel game and according to their age and binding.
We have many customers thank us for our packing and the care we take but we want our books to arrive looking the way they left us.
Layers are used always a plastic bag protection somewhere as years ago a book sent to us was saved in the post from severe red wine staining from a broken bottle in the post,by a layer of plastic. It is now a rule with us too.bubble or another layer and then cardboard.then an outer layer of paper (Parcel or bag if sent by sachel) in the case of very valuable or fragile books we have made wooden boxes to hold and protect them.
I hate to think of the horror stories poor packaging produces ,its not going to happen with us.
A standard packing job.
1.book ,invoice and credit card receipt.
2.Book & invoice wrapped in plastic
in the case of a leather or fragile book another layer of tissue paper & then the plastic,
3.the book is wrapped in bubble plastic or other layer.
4. a plastic bag 5. wrapped in cardboard
6. final wrapping is the sachel (within Australia) or paper outer wrapping for overseas.A set or number of books would be packed in a strong cardboard box.
If overseas there is an outer layer of papers and labelled carefully with a customs label attached.
