PREPARATION & SHIPPING

PACKING YOUR BOOSTER

See the photos as left and right, which show the best way to keep from breaking the rear hub on your booster. Use zip ties, as pictured, to immobilize the rod between the brackets.

PREPARING YOUR PARTS

FOR GRAY & BLACK PHOSPHATE

Parts must be free of any grease and grime prior to shipment. In order to ensure the optimal results, we will remove any remaining paint and undercoating on a time and materials basis. 

FOR CLEAR, GOLD OR BLACK

Parts must be free of any grease and grime prior to shipment. In order to ensure the optimal results, we will remove any remaining paint and undercoating on a time and materials basis. 

Parts that have been sandblasted (and shouldn't have been) may be polished, also. There is an extra charge to polish parts as this is not a normal step for these types of plating. Phosphate plating will mask many imperfections in the metal, such as pits and, as such, should never require polishing.

Please remove any small springs that you can from your parts prior to you shipping as they will not be plated.  If in doubt, call or email us first.

SHIPPING TIPS

PACK PARTS CAREFULLY

Use plenty of packing material to protect your parts and to keep them from damaging the box and possibly falling out. Our motto is, the stiffer  the cardboard, the better the box. Please also note that ziplock bags may leak during transit. 

 

​Remember to provide adequate insurance on your package en route to us in case of damage or loss.

SHIPPING CARRIERS

We primarily use UPS to ship. We recommend you go directly to a terminal office (as opposed to a privately-owned satellite office) for the best pricing. See their website for estimated shipping costs.

Pack it yourself to save money or have them pack it for you. Allow 5-7 days each way. You are responsible for the cost of shipping both ways.
