Shipping & Handling Costs

 

US POSTAL SERVICE
Please remember postal shipments are not insured. Vintage Books will pack your book with our usual care but cannot guarantee delivery or reimburse for lost shipments.
  • Media Mail (Book Rate) —cheapest USA service. We have had no problems to date but these shipments are not insured. Approximate shipping time: 1-6 weeks within continental USA.
    Estimated costs: $6.50 minimum and above. Actual cost will depend on total weight of the package.

  • Priority Mail (U.S. Shipments only.)—quick for modest sized shipments within USA. Again, these are not insured but delivery is usually 2-7 days. As with Media Mail, the savings (and risk) are yours.
    Estimated costs: If your item will safely fit in a 'flat rate' envelope, the cost will be $8.50. Actual cost will depend on total weight of the package. A 3-pound package to the East Coast will have a $14.99 to $23.99 shipping cost, depending on size.

  • Delivery Confirmation is included in the price.
  • Insured postal shipments: add $1.00 within USA.
