Shipping Informationfor U.S.A.

We take your book buying needs seriously. We take great pride in packaging your books for safe arrival and receive great feedback on our shipping practices and on the condition of books we sell, even from other book dealers.

“The book arrived today and I was most impressed by the packaging. If only all the books I buy come so well wrapped. You should give a master class! I especially liked the use of Magic tape with the ends turned over for easy peeling- an excellent idea which I will now blatantly copy. Thanks again.”

(Names will be removed on all feedback to keep your private information secure and private. Click on “customer feedback” on our home page for additional comments.)

We look forward to serving you.

Is there anything really free in this world?!

Yes; we offer free media mail. Unfortunately, it’s only available in the USA. You will receive free delivery confirmation and tracking via the U.S.P.S. on all books. Free media mail offer is only available through our website or by phone and mail orders only. Not only do you get media mail for free, you’ll get up to six free products/services when you buy directly from Old Scrolls Book Shop.

Six things? I only see two listed. What are the other four?

You’ll have to keep reading… we have to get some fun out of this!

Will my book arrive in a mailer and not well protected if I select FREE media mail shipping?

You still get top quality packaging and shipping. We use sturdy boxes. All books are carefully packaged, with quality packaging materials: bubble wrapped and 4-sided protection. Books with dustjackets are supplied with archival quality mylar covers--free. We ship within 24 business hours of your order Mon-Fri, in most cases the same day.

How long until my book arrives?

Media mail usually takes any where from 5-21 business days (there’s the catch). This is not a good choice if you have a short deadline for the arrival of your package.

What if I need it sooner?

We can offer you the same great service using Priority mail from the U.S.P.S. for $8. 95. Shipping times are 2-3 days to most areas in the U.S.A. If you need to have a book arrive within a short time period for a birthday or holiday, you should select priority mail or express mail, depending on your time frame.

During the Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa (did we miss anyone?) shopping season, from Thanksgiving through December 25, media mail tends to get bogged down and is not the best choice for books meant to arrive in time for the holidays.

I still want something for free if I need to pay for shipping!

You’ll receive free delivery confirmation and tracking on all books bought in the U.S.A. If the books cost is over a hundred dollars you’ll get free insurance, too.

I’m spending a hundred bucks on a book, I want more free stuff.

If you are spending $100 or more, select free media mail and we’ll upgrade you to priority mail with all the trimmings for free.

What if I need next-day delivery?

E-mail or call us to check on prices for next day delivery at info@oldscrolls.com, but that’s where the free stuff ends; we’re nice, but not crazy!

You say anyone can call the store to check on a book?

Yes; we love to have customers call us! We offer two ways to call, from the traditional means (the telephone--your dime!) to the latest technology: calling from your computer (no dimes required). Download the free software at www.skype.com and give us a call.

But will I be charged for the call after I down load the free software?

No, it’s free.

Don’t you add the cost of this free stuff to the price of your books?

No. We offer the same quality books at the same fair market price on all on-line venues like Amazon.com, ABE.com, Alibris.com, Choosebooks.com, IOBA.com, and our own website.

How can you afford to do this if the other sites charge shipping?

It’s simple. We are willing to lose money on shipping to encourage customers to come directly to our site. We take the commissions & fees that those larger sites would have charged us on your purchase, which adds up to half the shipping cost or better, and pass the savings on to you. Encouraging you to buy directly from our website saves you money and we hope it will help us build a loyal, satisfied customer base.
