Box Order (Slide Repair)
Specially crafted box container to ship your slide to the Slide Doctor for repair services.
We have very nice birch plywood boxes available that have foam lining to ship your slide safely. During the years we have provided shipping boxes, we have made several improvements in quality and safety. Boxes are now provided with foam lining and we custom fit rigid foam on each end of the completed slide for shipping home. The use of the rigid foam has reduced the likelihood that the slide will be knocked out of alignment during shipping home.
The latest improvement is to provide a cardboard box that will act as a sleeve for the wooden box. The cost of the box is $25.00 plus shipping. The shipping usually runs between $15.00 and $25.00 to send the empty box to you depending on your location. Therefore, we charge a flat product rate of $50 to cover our expense. Once the requested work has been performed, and your slide is on its way home, a credit or debit will be applied to your invoice to account for the actual shipping cost of sending you the empty slide shipping box.
Over the past 25 years, we have modified our shipping boxes to better protect your
equipment from damage in shipment. We are always looking for better ways to
provide our customers with the safest and most simple shipping process we can find.
While our wooden boxes have been very successful in protecting your slides, we have
recently learned of a UPS guideline suggesting at least 2 inches of packaging around
the item being shipped. After considerable thought and investigation, we have
designed a new cardboard box that will come with a 1-inch thick block of Styrofoam
under the wooden box and an additional block on top of the wooden box. If your slide
arrives in the shop in one of the old style cardboard sleeves, your slide will be returned
in the Gen. IV box at no additional charge.
All that you will need to do is to cut the plastic packing tape on the top of the box, lift
the flaps, and then lift out the top block of Styrofoam and remove the wooden box.
From that point on, everything will be the same, refer to the enclosed or attached
Place the wooden box back in the cardboard box on top of the lower block of
Styrofoam. Place the top block of Styrofoam on top of the wooden box, close the flaps
and securely tape the top flaps. Using this box will
