Shipping Information n' Stuff

No doubt about it, shipping is a dollar killer when you are mail ordering stuff. We here at the Track Shack try to minimize this cost and at the same time get you your 8-track in one piece. Fortunately, 8-tracks are pretty rugged pieces of plastic, and can handle being shipped no problem. You might see your tapes/repair supplies shipped in a cereal box or some other type of box. We're just trying to recycle as much as we can!

When sending us tapes for repair/tune-up or selling us tapes, usually the cheapest way to send them is Media Mail! Don't let the folks at the post office tell you you can't. Don't let them make you ship it Standard Mail or Priority! Both of these can cost sometimes 3-4 times as much as Media Mail.

When ordering, please remember that buying more tapes actually decreases your overall cost per tape when shipping is figured in. So, go ahead and try a tape that you would not normally pay 3 bucks for!! To me, half the fun of 8-tracking is trying out some new kinds of music at a very low cost.

Beginning April 8th, 2006, all US packages will have delivery confirmation included in the s/h charges. This is for your benefit as well as ours. Insurance is optional. We can't be responsible for packages that are lost, stolen or damaged in shipping unless the package is insured. It is highly recommended on larger package that might tend to get damaged in shipping. If your package is insured and something like this happens, we will be more than happy to work with you and the post office to rectify the situation. On international orders, there is tracking on First Class International, but once it leaves the States, can not be tracked further. The only packages that can be tracked fully are Global Express, Priority Express International and Priority International.

Most packages sent media mail should arrive within 5-7 days but could take up to 12 days. Single tapes are sent out by first class mail and should take approx. 2-3 days to arrive. It can be more due to holidays. International orders will vary. The Post Office has discontinued "surface" mailing. Now packages can only be shipped via 1st Class International, Priority (includes flat rate boxes), Express Int'l, and Global Express. Our mailing address is:

**Sometimes packages can be delayed through the post office, if you don't get your package within a reasonable time, please let us know. It doesn'thappen often, but packages sometimes get delayed in shipping.**
