Also - additional information...

We usually ship all orders within 2 business days of payment receipt. This is reflective of our business hours of 9:00AM - 5:00PM Monday through Friday EST. Items with Friday or weekend payments will usually ship by the following Tuesday.
We ship many new (and new, old stock) appliances and tools in their original outer box/package, shrink wrapped to protect from moisture, to save on shipping costs (these items are already packaged with the necessary protection to secure them in transit). If you want the item (and its original box/package) shipped inside of another box, let us know. Please note, however, that this will cause an increase in your shipping cost.
If the package being shipped weighs less than 4 pounds a flat rate shipping cost will be stated for your country --- these packages will be shipped insured. If the package weighs more than 4 pounds please use eBay's shipping calculator - and if your country is not listed, you may contact us at to request that cost. Be sure to include your complete address and the eBay item information when contacting us.
International Buyers - Please Note:

  • Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
  • Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying.
  • These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up - do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.
  • We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.

As we sell such a wide variety of items it is not possible to specify a standard rate for combined shipping. However, if you wish to purchase more than one item from us we will be glad to combine the shipping and handling costs for those items. That cost will be reflective of the package size and weight when the items are combined.
To ensure delivery of your merchandise please do not authorize/waive signature release with Federal Express, the Federal Express courier will re-deliver. In the event the customer has a signature release waiver on file with Federal Express, Bid It Adieu will not be held liable for missing or non-delivered merchandise.
