Shipments to Audio by Van Alstine

Domestic: Ship your equipment to AVA via an insured carrier. Make sure to insure the package for the full replacement value of the unit. Wrap the unit in a plastic bag so packing dust and bits cannot get inside it. To best protect the equipment, ship only one unit per carton and pack it so the unit will survive a drop down a flight of stairs. Packing peanuts are fine for preamps and light equipment, but heavy power amps need more protection. Building supply stores sell foam insulation in 8' sheets. Use them to create a cocoon for your big power amp. Crumpled newspaper just isn't strong enough to protect your electronics. Make sure your name and address are affixed to the unit itself.

International: We ship worldwide using insured Air Parcel Post or UPS, depending upon the weight, size, and value limits for your country. Please contact us for shipping rates. Many of our units are available wired for 240 volt operation. U.S. Customs will pass, duty free, units coming to us for rebuild or repair if they are valued under $500 U.S. and are marked "for repair and return." Sorry, but due to credit card fraud we cannot accept credit card orders from international customers. Please make payment with an international money order in U.S. dollars or we can bill you via PayPal.
