Normally, all costs of packaging and shipping will be the responsibility of the purchaser and will be quoted at the time of the initial order. Unless otherwise requested all items such as books, manuals, etc. for destinations within the US and Canada will be sent via USPS Priority Mail [or USPS First Class Mail if appropriate] which carries no insurance cover of the contents. If insurance is required this must be specified at the time of the initial order and the cost will be included in the shipping charges to be borne by the purchaser. For shipment to other destinations the cost will be quoted on an individual basis. While every care will be taken to ensure safe delivery of purchased items the responsibilty for the insurance of contents is that of the purchaser.
Larger items [cipher machines, etc.] will be shipped via a carrier such as UPS, FedEx, etc. - and full insurance of the contents will be included in any quoted shipping charges.
