About

Making remarkable and rare typewriters work and look their best!

I am interested in bringing to my shop typewriters that are not commonly found elsewhere. Remarkable, beautiful, legendary, and rare typewriters, full of history and character.
I am always on the lookout for the most interesting and unusual models and, since I am based in Berlin, I specialize in German brands and models, which were continuously on the cutting edge of innovation and design.

After very carefully selecting and screening the typewriters, I start working on its restoration. A vintage typewriter has most probably spent the last decades stored without proper care, and is hence dusty, dull and sluggish, and in need of a full tune-up and, more often than not, mechanical repairs. I do everything my own, spending much time, patience and care on each typewriter, going into the tinniest details, until it is restored to the most functional and beautiful condition. With the experience, I got to know very well the insides of the models I work with, and I developed my own exclusive processes and I use self-made formulas of solvents, greases, and waxes, for the best care of these remarkable machines.

After the work is done, I feel rewarded seeing a fifty-plus year old typewriter looking and performing great – very refreshing in a time when every gadget is so short-lived!
I photograph each typewriter from every angle, and then I proudly display it in the virtual shop window. I always date it, and add an historical note, as I feel it can only increase the pleasure of owning a vintage typewriter to know about its context.

Once a typewriter is purchased, a fresh new ribbon is installed, making it immediately ready to type! Then I carefully lock and wrap it, pack it very robustly and dispatch it with DHL to any location you can think of.
From different corners of the world, people reach out for their favorite typewriter, proving that mechanical objects have not lost their way into our lives. On appreciation for the craftsmanship, ingenious design and abilities of a typewriter, people are now creatively reinventing its use.

Typewriters which are refurbished to order will take the additional time of the refurbishing, clearly stated on the description.

☞ Carrier
I ship with German DHL. Included in the shipping price is tracking information and total value insurance.
DHL website: http://www.dhl.de/en.html

☞ Delivery time
Please contact me to know the estimated delivery time for your destination.
The estimates are provided by DHL as a guide only, and the transportation time is not guaranteed neither by the carrier nor myself.
There is no possibility of a complain or parcel search inquiry before 2 weeks over the estimated time have passed.

☞ Expedited shipping upgrade
For shippings outside European Union an expedited shipping option is available (DHL Premium), which can significantly reduce transit times.

☞ Shipping address
It is very important that you provide a valid shipping address on check-out. Please double check it to make sure the delivery will be successful. An unsuccessful delivery due to insufficient or incorrect address is of the responsibility of the buyer.

☞ Packaging and environment
Every typewriter is very carefully packed to prevent any damage during transportation, and to insure it arrives in great looks and working order at your door. All components of the packaging are environmentally friendly. The cardboard of the packaging is often reused and can be recycled. The flakes used to fill the packages and protect the machines are of organic origin and are 100% biodegradable. They should be disposed with the biodegradable/organic waste.

☞ International Customs
Orders that are shipped outside the EU may occasionally be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees issued by the destination country.
Please note that the clearance of these fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer.
Also notice I can't be responsible for delays if a package is temporary held by Customs.
All international orders will be accompanied by the respective international Customs forms, with content description, value and my signature.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returning a typewriter is not possible.
Please consider thoroughly the purchase of your typewriter, evaluate the description and photos, and ask me all the questions you'd like before committing to the purchase.

☞ What if: a typewriter was damaged on transit
Typewriters are very carefully packed to ensure maximal safety on journey. Nevertheless if any damage during transportation occurs, please let me know as soon as possible. You'll need to take the damaged typewriter to the postal partner of German DHL in your country, so a complain can be processed. A total refund is due in these circumstances.

☞ What if: a typewriter has not yet been delivered
Contact me and I will ask DHL for a search request. A search request can only be processed if the estimated time has already been exceeded by two weeks. In case the typewriter is considered lost, I will make a total refund.

☞ What if: a typewriter is significantly not as described
I try to give the best description possible and put much effort on the quality of my photos and people normally find their machines in a better condition that what I've described (please check the reviews). But if you think I missed a significant flaw, please contact me with some proof and we will work it out.
Additional policies and FAQs
