Packing your part & shipping to us:
Choose the right packaging for your items.
1. Choose a box size appropriate to protect its content. Under-filled boxes are likely to collapse; overloaded ones may burst. Consider strength, cushioning (crush zone), and durability (single, dual, tri-ply or pallet) when selecting what you use to package your part.
2. Fill all spaces in your box with a suitable filler such as polystyrene chips, foam, or even shredded paper (don’t use this for motors). Big spindle motors, are best shipped pallet only.
3. Use new or a decent quality cardboard single (very light & small), dual (medium size 45*45*40) or tri ply corrugated design (large+heavy 60*50*40 30KG+ or for delicate amplifiers with open frames). WARNING: If the cardboard box is damaged in any way it weakens and becomes useless; then you are relying on the good will and gentle handling of the couriers!
4. Make sure that the correct labeling is visible and always use ‘FRAGILE’ & ‘DO NOT MACHINE’ stickers when necessary.
This was a very lucky customer, but an awful pack to save a few pounds on shipping costs – it could have gone very wrong and if under insured a complete loss, if the parts had been bounced off the concrete on route to us. The parts did sustain quite a bit of damage!
