Was looking around for this and couldn't find the answer anywhere. Do you take submissions in person at your offices and how long is the turnaround on that?

Why do you have to have a paid membership?

We are in a secure facility where you have to be buzzed in by security. They need to know everyone coming in and out of the buildings. Being a member we have all of that information on file and our buildings are more secure that way. It is a perk of having a membership.

One of the boardies, bffnut, does this a lot. From what I understand, he much prefers personally submitting the books on-site because it takes the guesswork out of the shipment process (no damaged packages).

This good info.

 

I plan on buying the premium membership for the $150 credit towards grading.

 

Can I buy that on site or will I need to do that ahead of the visit?

 

Also will I need to fill out forms before visit or can that be done while there with a rep?

HI,

 

You would need to buy the membership before coming to our offices. You also need to call us 24 hrs in advanced to schedule an appointment.

 

You don't need to fill out the forms prior. however it will make the appointment faster if you do.

 

Thanks,
