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. For light parts use new or a decent quality cardboard single or double ply box, For parts above 5KG use a 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’s structural strength is significaly weakened 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!
