Loran Records is a mail order dealer of LP records. We are specialists in LP's only and do not sell 45's, compact discs or cassettes. We are very famous for our high quality records. Our customers tell us that we are the strictest dealer when it comes to choosing the records we sell. We look for nice, clean covers and try to make sure that the vinyl is completely free of any scratches, marks, scuffs, etc. This is the only condition that we sell and that is why we do not "grade" our records with various categories of condition. Our regular customers know the quality of our LP's. If you are ordering from us for the first time--do not fear--you will be happy! And we guarantee that because all items are returnable with no questions asked.

You will receive a tracking number when we send notification of shipping. You may then follow the progress of your shipment by going to the United States Postal Service website at www.usps.com or by calling 1-800-222-1811.
Priority or Express mail are available on request.
All records are shipped via Airmail. Rate varies depending on what country you are in. Please tell us what country you live in and the number of LP's you want and we will notify you of the postal charge.
We do not make any money on "postage and handling". In fact, almost all of our shipments cost more to send than we charge. Plus, we automatically insure all larger shipments to United States customers at no additional charge.
We try very hard to keep our listings very current. However, sometimes we get duplicate requests for the same item in a very short period of time before we got a chance to update the website. This very seldom happens and the chances will be very good that you will get the items you want.
