  •          Data storage - Before sending your product to PKparis, you shall make a backup (on a different digital medium) of every data stored in the product that is about to be sent to PKparis.
  •          Protective package - We advise you to use the original protective packaging. The material shall be protected with foam, polystyrene or bubble wrap, and must not come into direct contact with the box so that the item would not move in the box. If the material can still move, the package should be improved.
  •          One at a time - The hardware shall be packed separately, so that one would not collide with another. The best solution is to put each product into a different cardboard and to gather them into one package, whilst protecting the sides.
  •          Avoiding any blows - You shall handle the material as if it is brand new. We recommend wrapping the product in an antistatic bag. It avoids electrostatic discharges with the electronic components of the product. These discharges can cause additional damages.
