When preparing to ship your instrument cluster to Tanin Auto Electronix for our repair service, we have some easy to follow instructions to make sure that the cluster ships to us without damage.
Step 1~ Remove the cluster from your vehicle. This is usually easy to do, but if you need instructions just let us know and we will be glad to help you out and send you some directions or walk you through it.
Step 2~ Using bubble wrap, which is the preferred packaging material, make several wraps around the instrument cluster to make sure it is covered completely.
(We don’t recommend wrapping items in used clothing or towels when sending in to us)
Step 3~ Take time to look over the box that you will be sending your cluster in. We recommend taping the edges to guarantee a good hold during shipment.
Step 4~ Check the box , making sure there are at least two inches of space between the item and the inside of the box.
Step 5~ Once you determine that the box is a good size, use some balled up newspaper or packing peanuts for added cushioning in the bottom of the box and then place the packaged cluster on top of the packing material.
Step 6~ Cover the instrument cluster with more packing material. As we have shown here, balled up newspaper works great and is lightweight!
Step 7~ Don’t forget to include your work order when shipping the instrument cluster to us. Print the work order here: http://taninauto.com/media/work_order.pdf
Your package is now ready to seal up and drop off at a local carrier for shipping to us. Make sure to take out insurance on the cluster as well.
Tanin Auto Electronix definitely goes through a good amount of packaging material on a daily basis. We recycle as much as possible, using newspaper donations from one of our employee’s grandmothers. Thanks Cassie’s Grandma!
