Conditions of the Second-Hand (Used) Items
Here are some of the used Gundam models purchased from Surugaya. Most of the used items they sell are in a range of fair to great condition. You might hesitate to purchase since they don’t show any photos of the actual item other than just saying Used. Rest assured that if the item is severely damaged and unusable, they won’t be selling it.
Domestic Shipping Cost
At the time of this blog post, Surugaya offers free shipping if the total is over 1,500 yen (about $15.00 USD). Even if the total is under 1,500 yen, shipping is reasonable. One important point to note here is that Surugaya takes about 1 to 2 weeks before they ship the items. The reason? They have items in different store locations and they have to first gather all the items first prior to the shipment.
International Shipping Cost from Japan
Some countries, a tariff or tax imposed on goods shipped overseas. To find out if you have to pay, please use Google search engine to find out.
