How Do I Know What I'm Getting?
The rare book trade is unique. We operate on our reputations and trust. This means we will do our utmost to provide the best service we can. All our descriptions are guaranteed including any signatures or inscriptions. We are members of the ABA and ILAB which means that we are bound to their code of ethics. But on top of all that, this is our business, we all experience terrible customer service and poor satisfaction - we don't want that experience.
Can I Pay Over a Number of Instalments?
We can offer flexible, interest-free payment terms; if a book's £500 and you want to pay for it over four months then that's absolutely fine. The book will stay with us until the payment has been fully received, but the book will no longer be sold once the first payment has been made. As long as we agree the terms up front then there's plenty of room for flexibility. We have reciprocal trade discounts available to associated sellers, and other sellers with whom we have a relationship. Terms for institutions are negotiable on a per client basis.
Which Payment Methods Do We Accept?
Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Cheque, BACS/Bank Transfer, Cash,
We can accept international transfers, as long as they're in Pound Sterling. Foreign cheque cannot be accept at present.
Can I Return a Book?
Yes, within 30 days for any reason. All we ask is that it arrives in the same condition as it was received. We will pay return shipping if we have made a mistake.
Can I Come and Visit You?
We run Hyraxia Books from private premises, but we are happy to welcome visitors, either for selling books or to browse. Just drop us an email or call us on 07557 652 609.
