Your item will be carefully packaged to minimize movement during shipping. However, Coldwater Collectibles is not responsible for damage or lost items. Shipping insurance will be included in the final cost of the item (unless otherwise agreed upon). In the case of a damaged or lost item (and assuming that insurance was purchased), Coldwater Collectibles will attempt to facilitate the claim process with the shipper. However, all claims are subject to the shipper's rules and procedures and may result in a delay in issuing your refund.

Coldwater Collectibles extends a 3-day inspection period on all items and will issue a full refund (minus all shipping/insurance charges) if you're not completely satisfied as long as the item is returned in its original condition. Since many of the items being offered are on consignment, notification of all returns must be made within the 3-day inspection period. We are very flexible with this as long as the need for an extended inspection period is communicated to us at the time of purchase. It is expected that all items being returned will be properly packaged to minimize movement of the item during transit and that the package will be insured for the full purchase amount. Failure to follow the refund policy may result in a delay and/or reduction in the amount of your refund.
