This costing structure assumes the following, you are a mainland UK customer, not inc. Scottish Highlands and several other remote locations. The gearbox must be packaged carefully and must not leak when you ship it. You must protect all elements of the gearbox particularly the hockey stick (or shift fork). Use some plastic piping or something similar over this. Wrap the gearbox in a black plastic wrapping and box, make sure you pack the gearbox tightly to reduce the possibility of in transit damage. Note this service assumes for all swing axle gearbox customers that the axles have been removed!
Each gearbox will be inspected carefully once arriving at Limebug. Please note you must follow the above steps to avoid any further incurred charges we may get from our courier (UPS). These will be passed onto you directly should this occur.
