Typewriter Passion & Custom Gifts
We always work hard to make these machines shine and type smoothly again. They're taken apart, thoroughly cleaned, reassembled, oiled and adjusted. Also polished or repainted if needed and if it's possible, we revitalize a carrying case as well. It means it’s cleaned, painted or the stains on the plastic are removed, locks are repaired or replaced. If you buy it as a present for someone special, we can add a typed note from you :) We will do it even if it is a gift for yourself! We can customize the entire gift- from the colour of a typewriter to handmade paper sheets.
As part of our commitment to quality assurance, we provide video proof of the typewriter's testing process and the typing of an inspection report page. This serves as evidence for the insurance company and gives us peace of mind knowing that the typewriter has been thoroughly examined.
You will find a copy of the certificate of the quality and the test page along with the typewriter's serial number, legal invoice, and shipping documents, attached to your order. The video proof is available online on request.
Whether it requires repair or replacement. We will work diligently to find the best solution that meets your needs. Your satisfaction is our top priority. We are committed to delivering exceptional customer service and ensuring that you receive a fully functional typewriter that meets your expectations.

When purchasing shipping insurance, the specific coverage and terms may vary depending on the insurance provider and the policy you choose. However, here are some common aspects that shipping insurance typically covers:
- Loss or damage: Shipping insurance generally covers 100% costs of the loss or damage of the shipped item during transit. This includes scenarios such as theft, accidents, mishandling, or natural disasters.
- Full value or declared value coverage: Shipping insurance typically offers coverage up to the declared value of the item being shipped. The declared value is the stated or agreed-upon value of the item at the time of shipping.
- Transit duration: Insurance coverage typically applies from the moment the item is picked up by the shipping carrier until it reaches its destination.
- Packaging requirements: Insurance policies may specify certain packaging standards that need to be met for coverage to apply. It is essential to adhere to these requirements to ensure the insurance remains valid.
- Coverage limitations and exclusions: Read the insurance policy of the shipping agency carefully to understand any limitations or exclusions. Certain items, such as fragile or perishable goods, may have specific restrictions or require additional coverage.
- Claims process: Understand the procedure for filing a claim, including the required documentation, forms, and time limits for reporting damages. Familiarize yourself with the steps involved in the claims process to ensure a smooth experience. It's important to note that while shipping insurance provides coverage for potential losses or damages, it may not cover certain items or circumstances. Specific procedures may vary depending on the shipping company, insurance policy, and local regulations. It's important to follow the guidelines provided by the relevant parties involved in the shipment.
