Changes over at WW2GermanHelmets.com!!!

Good day ladies and gents.  Okay, first of all I apologize for not updating the Blog for a couple of months but things have been crazy and life has been very hectic.   First of all, I have moved to a new home and a new "Global Headquarters" of WW2GermanHelmets.com....okay the Global Headquarters is my new home office but I have just a super space in the new house for my office and it really accommodates the needs of the growing enterprise.   Moving the family turned out to be more rigorous than I expected which is typical of any move.   As a real estate broker, you would think that I would have had more realistic expectations but that was not the case.  But the good news is that we are moved and finally getting to a point of being fairly settled in.   Sure, there are a few boxes left to unpack and pictures to be hung but we are getting there.   Here's a few shots of the new office...bear in mind that it is not complete yet but this is the progress.   I love IKEA by the way and I highly recommend checking them out if you build a "War Room" as they have a tremendous selection of solid wood book shelves, book cases, and display cabinets.

       

New Photo Area 

Large Storage Closet for Inventory & Packing Supplies

I still to do some organizing but having everything in one space is much simpler.   You will note the new area dedicated specifically for making photographs of the helmets and various items.   I hope that you will notice the improvement in the quality of the pictures and a more consistent appearance.   

New Employee at WW2GermanHelmets.com

Another change around WW2GermanHelmets.com is that my wife will be officially joining the business and assisting me in a number of ways.    My wife Karen (15 years & counting) is just super.   She is organized and smart and has really great people skills.   My business has grown tremendously over the last five years and in August we reached our 5 year anniversary of the website.   Things have reached the point where I need help managing the growth.   Karen will be helping out with things like going to UPS and the Post Office, returning calls and following up on leads of new helmets and such.   I get lots of phone calls from folks wanting to sell items and she will be able to help them through the process.   She will also be helping customers through the buying process with things like taking orders, processing credit cards, etc.   I am sure that there are a number of other things that she will be helping out with but having the assistance will be great.   So, don't be surprised if hear from Karen in the future.   

The MAX show is just around the corner (Sept 30, Oct 1 & 2)

http://www.themaxshow.com/

I thought I remind you guys of the upcoming MAX show in Pittsburgh PA.   This is really one of the best shows in my opinion and hear the new convention hall is fabulous there.   I haven't attended the MAX show since 2007 so it's time for me to get up there.    I know a lot of guys feel that the SOS is the best show out there but I have to say that the MAX is just as good.   The SOS in Louisville is weak in a number of areas with regard to facilities.   The KY Exposition Center is old and the amenities there are very weak.   Poor concessions and overall treatment of dealers is lacking.    The guys that run the MAX show really have a slick website and do a great job of promoting the show.  I don't attend many shows as I have found that it is hard to beat the power of the internet.   Sure, there is money to be made at the shows but for the most part, anything I sell at a show would also sell off the website.  But the shows do have their place in the hobby.  I see them more as a Trade Show type event.  It gives me a chance to meet many of my customers face to face, as well as promote the site and develop new customers.   This is a business in which many of my customers are very good friends as well.   And, being a collector at heart, I love to tour around see all the great militaria and I often make purchases for my own collection at the show.   But, by far the fun part about the shows is getting together with our fellow collectors.  I am excited about the show and I do hope that you will look for my table at the MAX show and stop in so we can chew the fat as we say here in the South.    

Until next time, happy hunting!

Payment Methods and Shipping   

Cash, Check, Money Order, PayPal, Visa/MasterCard, and Bank Transfer are all accepted.   I also am pleased to accept layaways.   Simply pay 1/2 down, then pay the remaining balance within 30 days.  Once the balance is paid, I will ship your item promptly. 



There will be a 4.0% fee for PayPal purchases. For PayPal, simply provide me with your e-mail address and the item(s) you want and I will forward you a PayPal invoice.   MasterCard/Visa purchases include a 3.5% processing fee for US and international orders.

SHIPPING 

Items will be shipped after the check clears for items paid with personal checks. 

Shipping will be handled on a quote basis.  Generally we use UPS for domestic as the tracking is superior and the service very reliable.  We can  offer FedEx & USPS shipping as well.   

International shipping is also on a quote by quote basis.  I will ship to any country that shipping is available.   Be advised that if you are in a banned country, the risk for customs seizure is yours.  For International shipments I recommend using USPS Express International Mail as it can be tracked.  EMS is more expensive, however less services with the US Postal Service put you at risk for loss as the tracking capabilities are limited.  For the safest and best tracking as well as the fastest transit time, I recommend United Parcel Service, International Door to Door Service.  For shipments with low value declared without proper insurance, WW2GermanHelmets.com cannot accept liability for loss or damage.
