HOW TO SHIP AN ITEM TO US FOR REPAIR
Please prepare a written description of the problem or service required.(Letter Size or A4 paper please in the plastic bag with item(s) you are sending).
Include your full name, telephone numbers and/or fax number, email address, and return shipping address. If applicable, please include film samples to help us further diagnose the problem.
Put the item in a plastic bag with the paperwork, If you have more than one item, please put ONLY one camera with ONE paperwork for that item ONLY in only one bag. Choose a box that will allow for at least two inches of packing material on all sides of the item being shipped.
Slightly overstuff the box with packing material before sealing it.
The idea is to compress the packing material so that when you shake the box the item being shipped can’t migrate from the center to the edge of the box and subsequently be damaged by impact.
Ship item insured, by the carrier of your choice: UPS, FedEx, USPS Priority Mail.
It is well worth paying a little extra to add “tracking” to the shipping method.
Once your equipment arrives we will contact you with our estimate. Please allow 1-5 business days to have us register your item(s) and for the estimate.
There is no obligation, other than the cost of return shipping, should you decide not to proceed with the repair.

* Also, Please do not assume we know you by just writing your name on the box or bag. We get many shipments from various locations, carriers and local messengers. If you have really forgot to put your info, please attach a business card on the box or bag, with at least a valid e-mail address or attach that paperwork on the bag or box with the equipment you are sending, so that we may at least contact you.
