If you are a harp distributor purchasing for resale, you are requested to contact us directly via email or phone. We will supply you with wholesale prices and economical combined shipping. Distributors help harps users by providing after-sales services locally. We can limit our direct sales in market segments where we have a distributor.
Harp orders of 2 or less are usually shipped within 10-15 days. Accessories ship in 3 working days, if they are in stock. Time before shipment of wholesale orders depends on the volume of order. Our Company usually keeps a stock of instruments for regular buyers, to minimize lead time.
Tax Free home delivery by DPD in Europe
Mike Harps has a contract with DPD to offer home delivery throughout Europe at competitive prices. A great benefit of this service is, we pay your import expenses including duties, taxes, custom clearance and other charges of delivering the goods. This offers the peace of mind that your harp will be delivered just like local delivery by DPD.
DPD delivery may take about 2 weeks with no online tracking. This is slightly expensive shipping, For example the estimated charges for 34 Strings Harp is USD 340
Home Delivery by Postal Service
This is the favorite shipping method for Lap Harps. This is the only shipper who ignores box size and calculates shipping charges on weight, alone. Other companies charge by the size of the box rather than its actual weight. Due to the large size of harp boxes, shipping cost is many times more expensive than people expect.
The Postal Service does not carry larger than 27 Strings Harps. It is a cost effective option with partial online tracking, although it is slower and less secure
