FAQ

How does the subscription service work?

1. Purchase The Subscription of Choice

We will send your AAGS Welcome Kit. 

Includes: Packing Material and return label for your first shipment of five (5), or twenty five (25)  records

2. Pack Up Your First Batch

If possible, keep the records outside the cardboard sleeves - Be sure not to have any movement when you shake the package

3. Ship Package Via USPS

Use the supplied label. Yep, that's right, shipping is on us!

4. We Clean Your Records

We invested nearly $10,000 on vinyl record cleaning equipment to provide archival-quality cleaning for your collection.

5. Return Your Vinyl Records

A mailer and materials will be sent back to you, along with another shipping label to send the next batch in the following month.

What have you done to prevent my records from getting damaged in shipping?

We have invested in custom packaging to minimize the risk of damage. The outer carton is made of robust and double-ply cardboard used for shipping engine parts. The outside of the box is the brightest of white to keep the boxes as cool as possible during warmer months to prevent warping. Inside is a smaller mailing carton with stiffeners to keep your records securely packaged. Durable bubble rolls on each side give your records a smooth ride.

Yea... our customers have told us that it's overkill, but we're not shipping something silly like the Mona Lisa or the Hope Diamond. We're shipping your record collection! So we have to do it right!

What happens if my records get lost or damaged during shipping?

Aside from our groovy packaging, we also insure each package of 5 records for $500; for 25 records, $1500. If you need us to increase the insurance on a certain shipment or all, we pass the additional cost over to you, but it's insignificant. Since we provide the labels, we initiate the claim process and do whatever we can to help find your records, or get them replaced. 

What is your cleaning process?

Our cleaning process starts with cleaning the runout groove. Then we run it through a cleaner and solution that will knock down on the large debris, grease, and fingerprints. Next the first ultrasonic heavy cleaning cycle with a cleaning solution that is formulated with archival deep cleaning in mind. The final ultrasonic cleaning cycle is a rinse cycle and uses pure degassed distilled water. Finally the record is spot-free dried under forced air that is evenly distributed over the entire surface of the record. Once finished, the cleaned record goes straight into an anti-static sleeve. 

Can I cancel whenever I want?

Yes, our subscriptions are 100% commitment-free; however, our customers have enjoyed our service for many months and we're sure you will too!

How do I ensure that my records aren't delivered when I'm away?

If you will be away for vacation, or working etc. and you know that you won't be home during a certain timeframe, please let us know and we can schedule the delivery to arrive at a time that you know you will be home.


All plans include:

  • Archival Quality Deep Cleaning 

    One (1) Pre-Wash Manual Cycle, Two (2) Heavy  Ultrasonic Cycles, and One (1) Forced-Air Drying Cycle
  • Cleaning ID Card

    Once cleaned, each record receives a cleaning ID card that indicates the date of the cleaning, the artist, and title of the album. It proudly declares that the album was ultrasonic cleaned at AAGS. 

  • Fresh Anti-Static Sleeve

    Each record received a fresh anti-static archival sleeve to keep the record clean.
  • Custom Packaging 

    Our packaging is overkill, but we are carrying precious cargo! We have a double boxed system; the outer carton is made of double-ply cardboard, the inner box is a conventional record shipper, and it's surrounded with bubble rolls. Trust us, your records are safe with us!

"You are a PRO....Nice job cleaning the first batch of LPs. Wonderful details can be heard that were buried deep in the grooves before cleaning.  Thank you very much!"
