° Do not include probes (unless
their performance is suspect) - absolutely
must be disconnected.
° Do not include power cord.
° Pack properly - very important!
° If you only want after data, specify it clearly (otherwise, both before and after data will be taken and $75 charged).
° Specify freight class (whether ground, three day, two day, or next day).
° Specify purchase order number.
and cables must be removed from their connectors.
If probes are included in the package, they must be protectively
wrapped separately, and located in the package so that they cannot
come into contact with the instrument's front or rear panel. (Do
not ship probes unless they require separate service.)
Tape a foam or other type of soft protective sheet over the instrument's front panel to prevent scuff damage to the front panel. Place the instrument in a sealed bag to prevent small packing materials such as styrofoam peanuts from contaminating the interior of the instrument.
Completely surround the instrument with cushioning material as follows:
Large cell bubble wrap (3/4" high or larger cells): A minimum of four layers surrounding all six sides of the instrument.
Small cell bubble wrap: A minimum of twenty layers surrounding all six sides of the instrument.
Injected foam: The instrument must be supported above the bottom of the container with a minimum of 2" of cushioned spacer material before the foam is injected. Otherwise the instrument will settle before the foam cures, leaving insufficient protection on the bottom. Tennis balls provide an excellent spacer for this purpose. The spacer cannot be an incompressible material.
Styrofoam corner blocks: At least 1.5" thick, on all eight corners of the instrument.
Don't utilize oversized
containers: It's wasteful to
over-package your instrument by enclosing it in a container that's
larger than is necessary to provide adequate protection. Oversized
containers waste cargo space and cause handling inefficiencies,
so most carriers charge a significant extra fee to ship such parcels.
We try to reuse transit containers and cushioning material whenever
they're serviceable so as to reduce packaging costs and waste,
but we can't do this when your transit container is oversized.
Please don't package your instrument in an oversized container.
Hypatia will not be responsible for shipping damage en route to Hypatia, nor will Hypatia file shipping insurance claims against any carrier if in Hypatia's or the carrier's judgment the damage was due primarily to inadequate packaging.
