Packing your amplifier for courier delivery

If this is the first time you have sent  an amplifier via courier then it may seem like hard work, it isn't!  The tiny amount of effort when you pack your amplifier is nothing compared to the feeling you get when it arrives back freshly serviced and sounding as good as new! To make the process really painless follow these basic steps: 1. Printout and complete an  Amplifier Repair Request Form  or write your name, full postal address, telephone number, email address,  on a sheet of paper with your amplifier model, serial number and faults or requirements.  Your phone number is important for the return courier so please include either your main phone or mobile. 2. f you don't have the original packaging or it is too flimsy, find a double walled box at least 8cm larger all around than the amplifier extremities. Place 5cm thickness of infill material on the bottom of the box. Large Bubble wrap or foam sheets are best. 3. Wrap the amplifier in a large plastic bag to prevent dust ingress and superficial scratches from the infill material (a large bin liner will do the job).Place your amplifier centrally in the box. If you have more bubble wrap it is a good idea to cocoon the amplifier by wrapping it around the amplifier across two opposite sides and then repeating the wrapping across the other two sides. 4. Use solid infill material to pack around the amplifier right up to the top of the box. Sheets of expanded polystyrene or lots of balls of rolled up newspaper. 5. Fold over the box flaps and tape down firmly with self adhesive packing tape. Wrap the tape around the box in both directions to effect a firm package. 6. Measure the dimensions of the box length, width and height in cm. and the approximate weight in kg. 7. Contact your favourite courier to collect your package. Enter our address as the destination address and your courier should provide a printable address label. It is also wise to place your address (the sender) on a small label on the side of the box 8. Make out your destination address to: Amplabs, 1 The Woodlands, 28 Main Road, Kempsey, Worcester, WR5 3NB UK
