FAQs

All of my typewriters are in perfect working condition. They are cleaned, oiled and double checked. I repair them and replace broken parts if necessary. I install a new ribbon and test every typewriter very thoroughly (typing test is also included) to be sure that it works smoothly without any defects. All typewriters are ready to use out of the box!
I ship worldwide. My typewriters are especially popular in the United Sates. You can always check if your destination is on my shipping list. I'm sure it is!
I'm sure it will. I always pay attention to packing. I send typewriters in cardboard boxes. All moving parts of shipped typewriters are blocked. I use several layers of bubble wrap to extra protection. For shock absorbing all the empty space in the packages are filled by packing filler. The final layers consist of plastic wrap. Finally, I always add fragile stickers.
I am sure you can use it not only to write short texts but even a whole book.
The everyday cleaning is maybe a little excessive in my opinion. But like every mechanism it need a little TLC from time to time (oiling and cleaning).
I will be glad to help you finding a particular model that you looking for. Please just contact me.
The typewriter ribbons are not too hard to find. Actually, they are still being produced and easy to buy.
