Shipping Instructions
ICS NOLA advises shipping the computer in the original box and packing materials.  If the original box and materials are no longer available, please call your shipper to receive specifications for shipping a package through them.  Please do not attempt to ship via U.S. Mail.  The U.S. Mail has no way of tracking the package in the event the package never arrives at ICS NOLA.  We recommend UPS, FedEx or any other shipping company that uses tracking technology.
Full System:

   *   The 3?space shall be fitted with BLOCK FOAM material.  Make sure the material will absorb an impact if dropped.
   *   We do not recommend foam popcorn/peanuts, newspaper, pieces of cardboard, blankets etc.  These materials tend to shift in the box and allow the computer to move and make contact with the sides of the box.
