We are not responsible for shipping calculator errors, website malfunctions, data entry errors, or other errors or problems related to our use or your use of this site or due to any third party software running on this site.

Typical costs are $10 to $30 per item, but occasionally more for large items. Custom crating costs a lot more and will be required for certain high value or oversized items. If there is a significant difference between the 1% the shipping calculator adds for packing and actual packing costs, we will contact you to work it out.

Packing and shipping the fragile items we sell requires special attention.
