I remember a year ago I had to send my welder out for repairs through my welding supply shop. They shipped it out through a shipping company. 350 dollars and a week later it came back all beat up. The plastic trim for the front and rear panels were broke off, the case looked as if though they dropped it a few times, the cooling fan broke off, and quite a few screws broke out or missing.
Welder went right back in the morning and they took care of it for me. I got it back 2 days later, and the welding shop delivered it right to my door. What service!
I learned from that that you have to make anything you ship out durable enough to be dropped off a cliff!
