VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ ALL BELOW INCLUDING TERMS & CONDITIONS AND PAYMENT CONDITIONS & POSTAGE I have a collection of literally thousands of 10", 12" & LP Punk/Post Punk/Indie/New Wave/Alternative/Industrial/Shoegazer/Garage Rock/Lo-Fi/Thrash/Space Rock/Electronic/Avant-Garde/Reggae vinyl records. I am a private collector not a dealer and any items I sell will be from my personal collection. I will not be listing prolifically but will be doing so from time to time and often with some rare and collectable items. Please check my other auctions and keep an eye out for future listings. Every record I have ever acquired has been placed immediately into a brand new PVC cover to protect the outer sleeve and where applicable vinyl has been removed from inner picture sleeve and placed into a poly-lined paper sleeve to protect both vinyl and inner sleeve. As such every record I have bought new remains basically 'as new' or as close to it as you are likely to get no matter how old it may be. However, I have not bought every record in the collection new and therefore where this applies my methods will have kept the item in the same condition as it was when I acquired it. I will to the best of my ability follow the grading system used by ‘Record Collector’ (see below) but I may add a + or – to a grading to help fine-tune the condition report. The age and rarity of an item may also tweak the grading. Please note that vinyl will be visually graded only. Furthermore, I will grade as strictly as I can while attempting to draw a fair and reasonable balance between honest appraisal and not wanting to put a buyer off by over analysing the item for sale. Condition is often a matter of personal judgement, however, in all the years I have been buying and selling records I would have to say that my definition of any given grade tends to be significantly stricter than the majority. I have often had an item sold to me as mint or excellent that I did not consider it to be as such and would have given a lower grade. Record Collector’s grading system MINT: The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as sealed or un-played should be mint. 

 EXCELLENT: The record shows some signs of having been played but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing. 

 VERY GOOD: The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable. 

GOOD: The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration, etc.

 FAIR: The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced. POOR: The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise, etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing. BAD: The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection-filler. optimumdesign Terms & conditions I describe every item for sale as accurately as possible and provide as much information as I can or that is deemed necessary for a particular sale. I welcome any questions prior to auction end and I will do my utmost to provide an accurate reply (due to other commitments I cannot guarantee a reply to any question sent within the last 12 hours of the auction). Communication is the major factor with eBay, as we all want to avoid any possibility of a bad experience. Please make sure you ask any questions you have before auction ends and if you have any doubts then it is possibly better not to bid. Once the transaction is completed I will only accept an item to be returned if it can be proved that I have in some way mistakenly misrepresented it. In any such circumstances communication is again the key, as any problems can always be resolved. As with all auctions buyer remorse or change of mind is not an acceptable reason for return and would make it unfair on others who may have submitted bids. Payment conditions & postage UK buyers I accept PayPal. Alternative payment methods may be accepted but must be by prior agreement before auction closes. International buyers I accept PayPal only. No exceptions. Payment is expected within 3 days of auction end. If no payment or contact has been made within this period I reserve the right to cancel the sale. Postage costs will be added to the final bid price. UK BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO SEVERAL INSTANCES RECENTLY WHERE SOME !!!UNSCRUPULOUS!!! BUYERS HAVE 'CLAIMED' NON-RECEIPT OF AN ITEM AND PAYPAL PUTTING A HOLD ON AND THEN REFUNDING FUNDS IRRESPECTIVE OF ME HOLDING A PROOF OF POSTAGE (THIS PHENOMENON APPEARS TO BE AN INCREASING SCAM FROM A MINORITY TO GET AN ITEM FOR NOTHING) I HAVE NOW SET MY STANDARD POSTAGE TERMS FOR ALL SALES TO BE SENT ON A 'SIGNED FOR' BASIS. TO KEEP POSTAGE COSTS AS COMPETITIVE AS POSSIBLE MY STANDARD POSTAGE WILL BE SECOND CLASS RECORDED DELIVERY. FIRST CLASS RECORDED DELIVERY AT APPROPRIATE COST IS AVAILABLE IF PREFERRED. ALTERNATIVELY, I ALSO OFFER A NON-SIGNED FOR LOWER POSTAGE OPTION VIA STANDARD FIRST CLASS POST. HOWEVER, I WILL ONLY POST IN THIS WAY IF THE BUYER ACCEPTS THAT AS LONG AS I HAVE PROOF OF POSTAGE THEY TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY NON DELIVERY. THIS IS A STRICT CONDITION THAT MUST BE ACCEPTED BY THE BUYER AND I WILL SHOW SUCH TO PAYPAL IN ANY SUCH EVENT. (NOTWITHSTANDING THE ABOVE STRICT CONDITION OF SALE, I WILL JUST SAY THAT IN MY EXPERIENCE VERY LITTLE POST REALLY DOES GO ASTRAY AND I HAVE SENT THOUSANDS OF PARCELS ON A NON-SIGNED FOR BASIS WITH NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER). IF MULTIPLE ITEMS ARE PURCHASED PLEASE WAIT FOR AN INVOICE AS I WILL PACKAGE AS MANY AS POSSIBLE TOGETHER AT THE MOST COMPETITIVE POSTAGE PRICE. OVERSEAS BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: I OFFER A STANDARD SHIPPING COST TO YOUR COUNTRY THAT WILL BE SENT STANDARD AIRMAIL NON-SIGNED FOR. HOWEVER, I WILL ONLY POST IN THIS WAY IF THE BUYER ACCEPTS THAT AS LONG AS I HAVE PROOF OF POSTAGE THEY TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY NON DELIVERY. THIS IS A STRICT CONDITION THAT MUST BE ACCEPTED BY THE BUYER AND I WILL SHOW SUCH TO PAYPAL IN ANY SUCH NON DELIVERY EVENT. IF THE BUYER DOES NOT ACCEPT THIS CONDITION, OR INDEED CHOOSES TO HAVE THE SAFER SHIPPING OPTION, THEN THE ITEM WILL HAVE TO BE SENT 'INTERNATIONAL SIGNED FOR' OR 'AIRSURE' (DEPENDS ON COUNTRY) AND THE POSTAGE COST STATED IN THE LISTING WILL NOT BE SUFFICIENT TO COVER THE 'SIGNED FOR' OR 'AIRSURE' DELIVERY. I WILL NEED TO MAKE AN INCREASE ADJUSTMENT TO THE INVOICE OR SEND A SEPARATE FURTHER INVOICE TO COVER THE DIFFERENCE IF ALREADY PAID AT THE LESSER AMOUNT. I CAN NOT BE CERTAIN OF THE FULL POSTAGE COST OR THE EXACT EXTRA AMOUNT OF 'SIGNED FOR' OR 'AIRSURE' THAT MAY BE NECESSARY UNTIL I KNOW THE FINAL SALE PRICE AND INTENDED COUNTRY OF DELIVERY. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK FOR A BEST ESTIMATE DURING THE AUCTION. IF MULTIPLE ITEMS ARE PURCHASED PLEASE WAIT FOR AN INVOICE AS I WILL PACKAGE AS MANY AS POSSIBLE TOGETHER AT THE MOST COMPETITIVE POSTAGE PRICE. I genuinely do not attempt to make money from postage but do do need to protect myself. I will do my utmost to ensure postage costs are kept fair and to a minimum BUT I will never compromise on packaging just to achieve a lighter parcel and cheaper postage. I ask you all to accept that principle if partaking in my auctions. All records will be sent in purpose made mailers with vinyl taken out of picture sleeves (inner & outer) and placed in a paper sleeve to prevent seam splits during transit. At least two cardboard stiffeners will be used and sleeve will be extra protected in PVC cover within package. Please note: If an item is sealed it will be posted still sealed unless buyer requests otherwise.
