PayPal: If you would like to make a deposit via your PayPal account I can send you a PayPal Invoice and you can pay that way.
Wire transfer is a quick and cost-effective way to send money. My Bank Wire Information Sheet has all the info needed for your bank to effect the transfer. I will send you this sheet by e-mail (as a PDF file) upon request and you can print it out and give it to your bank when requesting the transfer.
Credit Cards: I can accept Master Card or VISA and will e-mail you an Invoice from my PayPal Merchant Account so you can pay by using the secure PayPal Credit Card Processing Service. You do not have to have a PayPal account to use this payment method. This method of payment will be for the deposit only.
Bank Transfers: Canadian residents might want to consider Interac eTransfer. Another good option is WISE (www.wise.com), an international bank transfer method that is quick, secure, and has a low fee. Another option that I've just been made aware of is Revolut, based in the UK.
If you have any questions about payment options, please contact me for details.
Packing & Shipping
The harp will be professionally packed in a double-walled cardboard box, the harp in it's soft case first being wrapped in bubble pack. If the harp ever needed to be shipped anywhere after you purchase it, these containers are the best way transport it safely.
For shipments to the USA, FedEx Ground is my preferred carrier, and all harps bound for the U.S.A. have the U.S. Customs clearance charges included in the freight charges. There is no duty on harps, but there might be a state sales tax, and if so, you'll get a bill in the mail from your state tax authority sometime later. If the harp is to be shipped to the U.S.A., I will need the Social Security Number of the recipient for U.S. Customs clearance.
Shipments within Canada will be made by a commercial carrier like Manitoulin Transport. The harp will be shipped to the nearest freight terminal to your address. If you wish home delivery, that can be arranged for a modest additional fee.
For air cargo shipments overseas, I use the services of a freight forwarder to find the most cost-effective and efficient method of transporting the harp to your destination. All freight quotes are from the Winnipeg Airport to your nearest international customs airport. Home delivery can be arranged at additional cost. All customs clearance fees, duties and taxes are your responsibility upon the harp's arrival in your country. I can arrange for a customs clearance agent at your airport to do the customs clearance procedures (they will charge you a small fee for this). I can also arrange to have home delivery of the harp after customs clearance, for an additional charge.
The waitlist is approximately 4 months. If you are interested in a quote (no obligation) or to order custom-built harp then please go to my Order Form page, fill out the form as best you can and click 'Submit' to send it in. I will send you a Quote based on current prices and containing quite a bit of information on the ordering, shipping and customs clearance (if necessary) process.

You will have 30 days to return the harp if you find it unsatisfactory for any reason. I must be notified before the 30 days is up to make return arrangements. You will be responsible for return shipping in the original shipping box. The harp must be returned in as-bought state free of scratches, dings, modification or damage. Any monies you paid for the harp (except the original shipping/customs charges) are refundable subject to an inspection once I recieve the harp.
