OSA obliges all bidders who wish us to pack their items to have it insured. Charges will be made to cover all costs including, packing materials, and completion of documentation, labour and delivery to Post Office. These charges will be higher than the postage costs seen on your parcel. Following the new Post Office price structures we have reluctantly been forced to introduce a minimum postage and packing charge of £7 per consignment. Your full postage costs will appear on your invoice. If you wish to have your items sent by private courier please contact us. Beware parcels not insured by you, are not the responsibility of Old Sports Auctions if they are lost, damaged or stolen. (This lot is housed in the UK; if you do buy multiple items from this consignor a reduction of postage costs will be implemented) My postage values are just a guide, if I charge you too much then I will refund, if it is too little then I will charge the difference once I have shipped the item(s)
