Terms of sales:
PLEASE EMAIL ME AT "BPRPL8S@PEOPLEPC.COM" TO
RESERVE YOUR REQUESTS.
NEW WEBSITE FEATURE:
"ORDER BY NUMBER"
To clarify the plate(s) you request and actually receive, I've
given each plate on my website a five-digit "stock" number.
You may order just using that stock number, but I recommend copy/pasting
the entire description line including the plate number and stock number.
(I've had people accidentally give me the wrong stock number, but since
they gave me the plate number, it was resolved correctly.) In many cases, I might have
multiples of a certain plate, but with different plate numbers.
Using the stock numbers will allow you to select exactly the
plate and plate number you would like, or at least it will inform you that the plate
may or may not be available. I've only done these
multiple listings for mint plates, since there's no uncertainty as to the
condition of a mint plate: mint is mint. All of the terms of the listing
(such as year, county, condition, naturals, price, etc.) will still
apply, even if that exact plate is not pictured. I have
finished going through ALL of my website boxes of
plates to assign stock numbers. I have also deleted ALL
of the plates on my website without stock
numbers, meaning that I don't have those plates any more.
Therefore, there is a 99.9% likelihood that I have the plate(s) you
request, unless it is reserved for someone who has sent payment and I'm
just waiting for the payment to arrive.
accept money orders, checks and cash.
I ACCEPT CASH, BUT I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR
THE SAFETY OF CASH SENT THROUGH
I also accept payments through PayPal.
Go to "www.paypal.com"
to make the payment.
My account is my email address "BPRPL8S@PEOPLEPC.COM".
Credit card payments may be made through PayPal.
Your order can usually
be shipped within 72 hours of receipt of PayPal, money orders and cash payments,
or personal checks from Automobile License Plate Collectors Association
(ALPCA) members. Put simply, my usual mailing days are Thursdays
and Saturdays, but packages under 13 ounces can be dropped in the
mailbox and mailed virtually any day.
Personal checks from non-ALPCA members
must clear before shipment of your order.
Shipping & handling is extra on all orders, domestic and/or international. The
shipping methods are explained below. Although the
shipment is likely to be shipped by the United States Postal Service,
please have a street address available in case it is requested for
shipment by Federal Express or United Parcel Service (UPS). I am not
responsible for the performance of the shipping service once placed with the
service. Insured shipping is available upon request and is extra.
The below rates reflect the USPS's NEW
postal rates and policies as of January 27, 2013.
U.S. addresses, including military
1 plate: United States Postal Service (USPS),
your choice: Priority Mail $7.25 or first class mail $3.75
Disclaimer on first class mailing:
While I've seen most first class
mailings take a few days for delivery, I have also seen
some first class mailings take up to six weeks for delivery.
You and I don't know which packages the Postal Service is going
to take a long time to deliver. If you want better
Postal Service assurance of delivery time, I recommend
going with the Priority Mail, which the Postal Service
advertises as generally taking 2-3 days for delivery.
2 full-sized plates: $6.50
mailed first class mail, $7.25 if you prefer Priority Mail
3-4 full-sized plates: Priority Mail $7.25
(I can usually slip in one to a few small-sized plates, like
motorcycles. Also, flat full-sized plates may allow me to
get more than four plates into the Priority Mail envelope, but
it's not guaranteed.)
5-10 plates: Priority Mail $7.25 +
$1.00 (=$8.25) for careful double-packaging and handling
11-50 plates: Maximum $15.50
shipping for USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Box. Holds up to about
50 plates, more if small plates are included.
First class: Depends on the weight
of the plate and no guarantee on the delivery time,
espcecially during holidays. (Minimum $1 for
handling). Ask me!!!
(Usually, a single aluminum
6"x12" plate can go first class to Canada for $10.50
and the rest of the world for $15.00. Not all steel plates
are the same weight, so the shipping price is not the same for all steel
Priority Mail (airmail): The Postal
Service offers International Priority Mail (airmail) to most countries for $28.00 ($24.00 to Canada) and 6-10 day
advertised delivery time. I can get
up to 4 plates into the Priority Mail envelope, plus a few
motorcycle sized plates, and it is not likely to have any weight
limit problems. Also, flat full-sized plates may
allow me to get more than four plates into the Priority Mail
envelope, but it's not guaranteed.
NEW: Priority Mail (airmail)
legal size: The Postal
Service now offers International Priority Mail (airmail) in a
legal sized envelope. I am estimating that I can get up to
10 plates, but it is subject to weight limits. To most countries
the charge is $29.00 and $25.00 to Canada. The post office advertises a 6-10 day expected delivery time.
I recommend this envelope for up to about 20 plates (two 10
plate envelopes). After 20 plates, it is more economical
that the plates go into
the box rate (see below).
Priority Mail (airmail) box:
The Postal Service offers
International Priority Mail (airmail) in a box to
most countries for $70.00
($51.00 to Canada) and advertises 6-10 day delivery. The Postal Service provides the box, but the
maximum weight to most countries is 20 U.S. pounds. I've been
known to get about 50 plates into that box and, depending on the
mix of steel and aluminum plates, it usually will stay under the
20 pounds. Check with me to make sure the plates you want
will fit into the box and your country satisfies the postal
Important note on shipping times: The international delivery times above are
from the U.S. Postal Service's advertisements, so the shipping times are not
guaranteed. Remember, delivery time also depends on
the quality of YOUR country's postal service.
Sales of currently valid plates: Sales of plates that
have valid registration stickers are sold only to ALPCA members with
currently valid membership. Please provide your ALPCA membership
number for verification. This does not apply to plates that do not
normally get renewal stickers, such as plates renewed with windshield
decals (New York, New Jersey, Texas) or plates that are "permanent".
While every effort is made to keep the website up-to-date, all
plates listed are subject to prior sale.
