When shipping expensive motorcycle parts by either your Post Office, UPS, FedEx or any other shipping service, be sure to wrap them securely so they don't get damaged in transit.

DON'T FORGET TO INCLUDE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE BOX - To print out an APE Work Order Form (pdf format) click here.

1. Wrap your part in plastic and tape the part securely, so as to guard against any type of moisture the part may become exposed to in transit.
2. Use a material that will provide more than ample cushion for your part. We recommend using plenty of layers of cardboard.
3. Using cardboard and strapping tape, create a "cocoon" which completely encloses your item. If you are shpping multiple items in a single box, create a cocoon for each item.
4. If shipping a crankshaft, for instance, put cardboard on the ends as shown.
5. Place that cardboard cocoon in a container (a sturdy cardboard box will work just fine) that is of the size necessary to accommodate the cocoon, but is large enough that you can use additional packaging material, such as newspaper or styrofoam popcorn. Pack the packaging material around the cardboard cocoon enough so that the part WILL NOT MOVE OR SHIFT in transit.

6. Before closing the package, please be sure to include a note that includes your name, address, phone number, the work that you want done to the part, and method of payment. Or, click here to print out a work order form to include in your package.

7. Be sure to properly close and tape seal the shipping container, preferably with a good shipping tape and then wrap the box, length AND width-wise, with strapping tape.
