It's Easy to Use our Services!

  1. Double box your unit. Ship either UPS, USPS or Fed Ex ground. We highly recommend insuring your unit.
  2. Enclose a letter of transmittal stating what you are sending and what you wish us to do to it.
  3. Give us your name, shipping address (business or residence), phone, and/or fax number, and/or email address.
  4. State the value of the unit. We will ship it back to you insured for the same amount. While we possess your unit it is insured by Bailey Insurance.

Within 1 week or sooner, after receiving the unit, we will give you a firm quotation for rebuilding (there is no charge for our quotation). You can then instruct us as to proceed or return the unit. We expect you to cover the cost of the return shipping.


The Burton L. Norton Company provides a 12-month warranty on every unit it renews.
