United States Postal Service (USPS) And FRUGALITY (Best Shipping Method) 



SHIPPING RULES 

I ship United States Postal Service PRIORITY MAIL, period.  They allow shipping six days a week including Saturday and allow drops on Sunday which leave at midnight. I don’t loose too many weekends.  

Priority mail has the best rate and record for two to three day delivery for what I ship and Priority mail is fast, trackable and is insured.  Pre-labeled CLICK & SHIP means no time lost waiting on lines and being located close to a major airport cuts a day off.

We have a 24/7 hour Main Office open at TAMPA airport 17 miles away, good till 8:00PM if an emergency shipment is needed.  

I have a discreet drop box at my condo so if the stuff is addressed right it gets here even if I am not.   Do not ask for a signature card, it will signature record free when dropped to me electronically.

The USPS offers lower fixed rate fees on 5-20 pound weighted products and this saves my customers money.   

No logo packaging for theft protection.  And the boxes for me or you are free, with boxes in all sizes.   

Using regular newspaper as the filler and no wrapping paper, no peanuts or carcinogenic plastics.  I believe in recycling.   Our hot glue seal packaging prevents theft and “slit grabbing" and the USPS offers inexpensive insurance. 

If sending me a package, call or email first, let me know you are sending me something, when it’s expected and what's wrong or if it's just a routine safety check, which is free except for return postage.

Again, enclose a check or money order PayPal for the return postage. Note: It's $13.80 for the return postage as we only use PRIORITY MAIL. Put your name on your gear with a sticker or business card.  

Please enclose the charger and /or cable so we may test the whole system and include the module for the flash.  If you do, we'll check the cable, tighten things clean and polish the contacts at no charge. Then we’ll both sleep that night. 


RULE ONE - NO PEANUTS PLEASE !     


       RULE TWO - ENCLOSE NOTE PLEASE !           


Please do not use peanuts, the peanuts get blown all over the place. I use exhaust fans to dissipate the gases from soldering and I do take a metals blood test every year, because of exposure and I shoot competitively, work with solder, other carcinogens, and particulates from recycled cardboard.  Use clean newspaper, if a package gets wet the paper absorbs better.   

I ship the boxes to you always wrapped in sealable saran wrap for shipping to protect or for a wet weather leak and so forth.  The contacts are covered with red caps as per shipping and airline regulations. Then wrapped in newspaper for bump absorption.  I have over 4000 shipments over the years and no problems so far.

I prefer for you to use USPS PRIORITY MAIL.  UPS packages secondary.  I have specific reasons for this choice. My mail person knows me and has a passkey and is in touch every day.   Sometimes the FEDEX, DHL and other carriers not familiar with my name or the Condo I live in will leave a package at the base of the elevator insecure.   Thats if it gets to the right building as there are 179 other condos just like mine based on a four digit system and I believe dyslexia is more prevalent that thought of.

Take the email or a note of our discussion and stick it in the package with your address and phone numbers.  Again and I hate to be redundant, include your name address, the nature of the problem or work to be done and your phone numbers and email address.   Those that do not enclose a note, I will let it lay till you figure out who you are and you contact me.

Cut and paste the attached email and place this form in the box if you will.   Sometimes we get a package from "BILLY BOB's Swedish Smorgasbord and PIT BARBECUE".  And I am supposed to know it's from William Glickinsanpooper, Cosnobia, Connecticut.   Drives me nuts, almost as bad as peanuts. 

Since Canada was not on the list of countries George Bush invaded in the past years, this year, surprisingly enough... we have good news!  Better Service to Canada and International Service with Priority Mail and lower costs.  Less aggravation with customs and quicker service.
