I sell mostly antiques and collectibles, which will usually have the normal wear that you would expect to occur from normal use and age. I will mention anything I find objectionable in the condition report above. If the listing ends over the weekend, you will normally receive an invoice on Monday.You will need to save the box and packing materials to show the shipper. This is the proof that they require, so if you discard the packing materials, your claim may be denied. Shippers do not accept parcels packed in damaged boxes as a rule, so damage is normally evidenced by damage to the box.
