About Charles Kent's Radio Attic
Restoration Philosophy: Leaving the radio in original condition is my philosophy.  When necessary I professionally restore and repaint.  Any repairs and any cosmetic flaws are completely disclosed.  The age of radios being 80-90 years old are not meant to be played all the time.  We all love playing radios but one needs to recognize they should not be played all of the time. 

Shipping: Buyer pays shipping and handling.  Over the years I have received praise for excellent radio packing.  I use double walled boxes, wrap the radio in bubble wrap.  I use professional packing paper leaving at least 2 inches between the wrapped radio and box.  By using this method and shipping FedEx ground I have a damage free record.

Warranty:  I offer a 30 warranty on electronics.  All radios are tested to make sure they are playing before shipping, if sold to be playing.  If your radio arrives not playing please contact me and I will offer suggestions to get it working as handling during shipping may have loosened a component.  Please notify me within 48 hours of receiving the radio.  Returns must be approved by the seller.  Buyer pays shipping to seller and seller will pay to ship it back to buyer.
