About

Welcome to Typewriteralley! I am the founder and the owner of a small company located somewhere in central Europe. I started with a single typewriter founded on the loft, but one was not enough. More and more were bought. With the passing of time, my hobby became a real passion, the passion which I want to share with you, my beloved customers. I wish to collect, renew and find the new home for the old typewriters, to breathe new life into these items of days gone by, I know they deserve for it. These rare objects are ideal for those who appreciate the beauty of good design and uniqueness, which are so hard to find these days. It doesn't matter who you are, or where you come from. Are you a prize-winner writer from the USA or total beginner living in Canada, an experienced collector from UK or greenhorn from Brasil, there is a little something for everyone in my Typewriteralley.

Please apply following procedure to avoid misunderstandings. When your order arrives please inspect the packaging and delivered item carefully for any damage that may have occurred during shipment. I strongly recommended to carry out quick, working test to ensure that your typewriter reaches you undamaged in perfect working order. If any damage is discovered before or after unpacking the parcel, please take clear photos of the item and the damaged packaging, inform the courier or the agency and contact me immediately (within first 48 hours after delivery maximum). If you don't receive your parcel at all please inform me about it too in mentioned above time. In the first case, I will contact with freight agency and put the claim.

★ FEEDBACK

Dear customer my goal is to provide the top quality service. If you are satisfied with your purchase experience, please do not forget to leave a feedback. I would appreciate it very much.

★ ARE YOUR TYPEWRITERS READY TO USE?

All of my typewriters are in perfect working condition. They are cleaned, oiled and double checked. I repair them and replace broken parts if necessary. I install a new ribbon and test every typewriter very thoroughly (typing test is also included) to be sure that it works smoothly without any defects. All typewriters are ready to use out of the box!

 

★ DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY? E.G. USA, CANADA OR OTHER FAR DESTINATIONS?

I ship worldwide. My typewriters are especially popular in the United Sates. You can always check if your destination is on my shipping list. I'm sure it is!

 

★ WILL MY TYPEWRITER SURVIVE ITS JOURNEY IN A GOOD CONDITION?

I'm sure it will. I always pay attention to packing. I send typewriters in cardboard boxes. All moving parts of shipped typewriters are blocked. I use several layers of bubble wrap to extra protection. For shock absorbing all the empty space in the packages are filled by packing filler. The final layers consist of plastic wrap. Finally, I always add fragile stickers.

 

★ CAN YOU FIND A TYPEWRITER THAT I AM LOOKING FOR?

I will be glad to help you finding a particular model that you looking for. Please just contact me.
