I'd agree with you *but* a closer look at his wording:
"Lucky winner agrees to pay for all actual shipping costs a $100.00 professional packing fee and insurance."
leads me to believe that the $100 is just the packing fee - shipping and insurance are extra.
I'd be interested to know whose doing the professional packing job as he's essentially local to me and you have to figure that's a shop you'd want to avoid.
