i should have specific details on the holds and shipping in a few days. we will hold items until the end of the day for free, but we may be charging for the whole weekend. it is safe to send vinyl. we do it everyday, but it's expensive to do it right. to send 1 record it will cost $12.00. but it's not so bad if you are sending 5-10 records. 10 records will only cost you $20.00. we will be offering insurance.
