INBOUND SHIPPING

 

Shipping Parts to the FAA/EASA 145 Repair Station?

Simplified: (details below)

1) Box your parts carefully so that there is no metal-to metal contact.

2) Fill out a Repair Station Work Request. Place it in the box.

3) Secure the box and take to your local UPS or FedEx mail center.

4) Expect to receive a ‘Receiving Memo’ listing the parts we received.

5) Watch your email or log on to our website to track the progress of your job.


Container/ Box type:
If you do not have a suitable container, please email our Shipping and Receiving Department, and request the appropriate boxes for the parts you plan to send. We will send these to you at no charge. Please pack your parts carefully with ample protective cushioning. Remember these are heavy parts. Also, we recommend that you insure your shipment. Occasionally, we see parts sticking out the side of boxes. Aircraft Specialties will not be responsible for damaged or missing parts. We appreciate the efforts of our customers who custom craft shipping containers – kudos for that, well done! Sadly however, they will not be returned to you. Our shipping insurance policy requires us to ship parts in an approved shipping container.  If you would like your custom-crafted container returned empty, we are happy to do so.  

Order Instructions: Each order entering the 145 Repair Station must be accompanied by written instructions from the customer. Include either a Purchase Order with inventory list and specific work instructions or use this form:Repair Station Work Request. The form is editable and can be printed or saved to your computer. Place the form or PO in the box. Verbal instructions provided to our staff prior to receipt of your order is not a substitute for this requirement. If no instructions are included, your order will be delayed while we track down the necessary information. Acceptance of your order is subject to our Terms and Conditions.

Shipping Methods: The most practical and economical way to ship steel engine parts to Aircraft Specialties Services is via UPS or FedEx.   While each have a maximum weight limit of approximately 150 lbs. per shipping container, this should not be a goal. A crankshaft typically weighs between 35 lbs. (for a small 4-cylinder) to 75 lbs. (for a 6-cylinder). Keep these weights in mind when combining items. It’s better to package small items such as rods and miscellaneous steel parts into one container separate from the crankshaft. Be sure to provide adequate padding between parts. Areas such as gear teeth and flange-ends are especially susceptible to damage from improper padding.  

Receiving Memo:  We photograph each order as it is being unpacked. Once received, identified and checked-in we generate a Receiving Memo which is sent via e-mail or letter. It is important to review the list and call immediately if an item is missing. If you included an inventory with shipment we will identify any items short-shipped.

If you also plan to send parts to one of our aviation neighbors such as Divco or Quality Aircraft Accessories, we will sort them out for local pickup per your written instructions. Combining your shipment onto one pallet or within a box may offer some savings.


Outbound Shipping

We ship to virtually any address in the world. Note that there are restrictions on certain products, while some products cannot be shipped to international destinations because of export restrictions.

Once you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates based on product availability and the shipping options chosen. Most orders ship within 24-48 hours. Shipping date estimates will typically appear on the shipping quotes page, (depending on the shipping provider). This E-commerce site will automatically send customers an email at each milestone to alert the recipient of the order status.

Shipping rates are based on size and weight. The weight of individual items can be found on its detail page. Large items may ship at a higher weight than indicated when size becomes the limiting factor in the shipper’s calculation.
