F.A.Q. - Frequently asked questions (Click question to read)
How long will it take for my order to arrive?
After we have received your order we try to get back to you with a confirmation as soon as possible, hopefully the same day. Depending on the amount of orders etc your confirmation can sometimes be delayed up to a couple of days, but we are always trying to get back to you as quick as we can. Orders placed during weekends or friday evening will get a confirmation early the coming week. When you have received your confirmation and the order has been paid for, your records will be sent off the same or the following day. Delivery times to Europe vary between 2-8 working days depending on the country and amount of records. UK, Germany, France, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, Netherlands : 2-3 working days, Italy: 3-5 working days. Records sent within Sweden are usually delivered the next day if 7 records or less. If more than 7 records delivery might take 1-2 extra days. Delivery times to the rest of the world is 3-12 days depending on location. These delivery times are only estimates from the swedish postal service and may vary a lot. We suggest you to add insurance to your order so that the parcel can be trackable. Orders with 8+ records are allways trackable and we can provide you with the tracking number on request.
Can I place an order and pick the records up /have them sent at a later date?
Yes. We can hold your records until a requested date, but you still need to have sent payment within 2 weeks. For special requests such as these it is up to you to contact us with a reminder on the date you want the order delivered.
Will I have to pay customs charges for my order?
All orders from within the EU are free from any customs charges. If you order from outside the EU you might get charged for duty and customs fees, however most smaller packages will make it through customs. We suggest you talk to your local customs office for more information. For any special shipping requests please use the comment box when checking out.
I have not received my records yet!
First thing you should do is contacting your local post office. Often they forget to leave you a note about your undelivered records. If they don't have your package, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your order was insured or if it was larger than 8 records we can track your order and start an investigation. For resons that are out of our hands packages will sometimes take a while to arrive. Our experience is that most packages that first seem to be lost will eventually reach you.
What shipping service do you use?
We send all orders using the swedish postals services 1st class airmail which are handed over to your national postal service for delivery.

Are all records on the site in stock?
All records that say "IN STOCK" or "NEW IN STOCK" should be in stock. It may happen though that the record was just sold in the shop or that someone else placed an order for the same record just ahead of you, but we try to keep the list as up to date as possible.
I'm having problems with the shopping cart
Some customers may experience problems with the shopping cart if they are behind a firewalled network or if using very old computers or web browsers. You may also experience problems if your web browsers security settings are set at maximum. Try changing the security settings to medium level. Also make sure your browser accepts "cookies" and that "Java" and "Java script" are enabled. If you are still encountering problems when ordering, please send us a mail describing the problem, and also include info about the computer you are using, operating system (windows, osx etc), browser and browser version (microsoft internet explorer 6.0, netscape 8.1, firefox etc). email@example.com
Is the picture in the listing showing the same copy that you have in stock?
Sometimes we re-use the picture from a previously sold copy, so it's not 100% certain that the picture in the listing displays the copy in stock. If a record is VG the picture will always show the copy in stock.
Do you accept trades?
Yes we are interested in trades. Please use the comment box for trade offers when you place your order. Please include all necessary info such as pressing, condition and trade price.
Do you buy single records and record collections?
Yes we are always interested in buying records. Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with what you have to offer. Please include Artist, Title, Label, Pressing, Condition and the price you have in mind.
Is this the original issue?
The listing for every record indicates if it's an original pressing, 2nd pressing or a later pressing. All reissues say "reissue" in the comment. All records that say "original" are original pressings.
