You are buying from an established ebay seller and can bid with confidence – check my feedback. My postage, packing, and handling charges are also very competitive. The postage services offered do not provide tracking information, if a tracked service is required this needs to be requested at the time of the sale. All my items are carefully checked for functionality before dispatch, and you are reassured that any defect will be highlighted in my item description. I am afraid I cannot provide refunds in the event of loss in postage, proof of postage will always be obtained and provided to the buyer if requested.
