Terms of Sale & Policies
The Following are the general policies that govern all items CarStuffetc offers for sale on eBay and our eBay store. Exceptions will be where specific terms are outlined in a given listing for that item only. Information here supersedes out dated information contained in certain listings. By migrating terms to this page instead of each listing we accomplished a few things. Terms and shipping methods and policies can be updated more quickly, listing pages are less cumbersome for buyers who do not like to read the policies in depth, and the display time of the pages is also faster.
By clicking "Buy it Now" or by placing a bid, you agree to be bound by the terms specified
within this Policies page, the listing, as well as the terms listed in the eBay's User Agreement and our Buyers Agreement. For more information please click the preceding links. Item specific information is included in the listing but for details about Domestic Shipping, International Shipping, and accepted forms of Payment please see

After winning an item, buyers can use the Checkout button located at the top of the auction listing to check out or click the PayPal logo above to bring up the payment screen. In addition, winning bidders will receive an e-mail invoice directing them to the PayPal automated checkout system. We highly recommend PayPal, it is fast, easy, safe and secure and will insure your item is shipped out promptly. Even if you plan on sending payment via another form, please use the check out so we will be notified that payment is on it's way. International bidders can submit payment through PayPal. (See details below under shipping for terms regarding PayPal payments from international bidders.)

- Winning Bidders are responsible for paying all shipping and handling costs. Shipping and handling are not refundable once an item has been shipped. Most listings will specify flat rate shipping, some listings require a quote or use of the shipping calculator provided in the listing.
- Most items are shipped USPS Priority Mail (All 50 states & Puerto Rico) unless another method is specified in the listing. Contact us for a shipping quote to, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, or for shipping Internationally. If an item is being shipped UPS then it can not be delivered to a PO Box.
- Insurance is required in the event your package is lost or damaged in transit. It is either included in the shipping charges or listed separately, depending upon the listing.
If the buyer does not choose insurance when offered the Buyer takes full responsibility in the event the package is lost, stolen or damaged in transit.
- We make every effort to ship your item to
you quickly and to keep all items in stock at all times. Occasionally, due
to situations beyond our control, we will be temporarily out of stock of
an item. In such rare cases items are ready to ship within 7-10 business days of being out of stock. If an item will be out of stock for a period longer than that stated above, we will give you the opportunity for a full refund should the wait be an inconvenience.
- Some items are routinely drop shipped directly from the manufacturer due to weight, size, or in an effort to save you on shipping cost and or shipping time. Large freight items are frequently drop shipped
- International Bidders are welcome! In general, we will accept PayPal from buyers in Canada, The UK, Germany, France, Italy, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. If payment is mailed in we require it to be in US funds drawn on a US Bank.
- Due to the complexities of international shipping, we now ship these orders on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. Of course we do try to ship these out on other days when the situation allows us to squeeze them in with our domestic shipments.
Most International packages are shipped First Class Mail International (Varies- 10-14 days is typical but not guaranteed), Priority Mail International (usually 6-10 days), or Express Mail International with tracking (typically 3-5 days).
Please note that delivery times vary wildly depending on your country, your local postal system, customs, and various other factors, and that typical shipping times are transit times and are not estimates from the time of purchase.

We will ship registered air mail or Global Express if you need true
tracking. Email us for a quote.
- International bidders are responsible for any and all duties and taxes due at point of delivery.
We do not falsify customs forms so please do not ask us to do so. Many countries (especially Canada) are now routinely opening and delaying packages marked as "Gift" and the subsequent fines and or legal consequences are not worth the few dollars saved.
- Costs vary by weight and ship-to location, but are often provided for in the listing for many destinations.
Email us for a shipping quote to your country if it is not specified or if you wish to combine multiple items.
We do offer shipping discounts on multiple items. Email us for a quote before the end of the auction if a multiple item discount is not specified in the listing. We routinely go through closed listings and combine shipping when there are multiple winnings for an eBay user ID when possible. We can not combine items that are paid for separately, so if you want the shipping discount please wait to pay until you receive the combined invoice. If discounts for shipping multiple items are specified in a listing, then feel free to edit the invoice manually to reflect the proper shipping amount. Some items may not be able to be combined due to weight, size, or in cases where an item requires drop shipping. Speakers in most cases can not be combined for a shipping discount unless purchased in case quantities and shipped UPS.

particular listing, we do accept returns.
