You are welcome to bring your vehicle to our workshop in Düren (North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany). We will take care of removal and installation on-site.[*] Please contact us in advance to discuss repairs on site and arrange an appointment.

We will also return the units on the same day. As a rule, parcels are shipped for between one and two working days.
Payment is conveniently collected on delivery, i.e. you pay the parcel service agent in cash at your front door.

We recommend sending parcels as regular parcels instead of small parcels. Usually small parcels are not insured and longer delivery terms apply. Make sure to pack the unit carefully as it is a sensitive electronics component that is very susceptible to damage. We also recommend using a carton that is larger than the component (5 cm extra space on each side), wrap the component in bubble wrap and fill the remaining space with packaging materials (e.g. polystyrene chips).
