Please include within your box a letter with your return shipping information and a list of all requested repairs.
Remove all the accessories, including all reeds, straps, and bocals, from the case. Keep the four joints in the case. The bocal either may be packed separately, outside the case, or may be secured inside the case in such a way that it could not come loose or be damaged during shipping. Keep the package as light as possible in order to reduce the risk of damage and to lower shipping costs.
Wrap each bassoon segment with packing material and place each segment back into the case. Do not use bubble wrap or Styrofoam peanuts inside the case.
Close the hard case and remove it from the soft outer case. Tape over the latches of the hard case to prevent them from accidentally opening.
