INTOXIMETERS, INC. shall not be responsible for any custom software, custom configuration information, or memory data of customer information contained in, stored on, or integrated with any products returned to INTOXIMETERS, INC. pursuant to any warranty, repair or recertification.

Prior to the instrument return for warranty, repair or recertification, all stored data, settings and custom software required by the customer, should be saved or secured by the customer.

What should I NOT ship back with my instrument?
Never ship an instrument back with a Dry Gas Tank of any size, even if it is empty. It is illegal and can carry heavy fines if you are caught shipping a hazardous material without proper certification and documentation. While the contents of the dry gas tanks are not inherently dangerous, the tanks are considered hazmat for shipping purposes because they are under pressure.
EC/IRs and Alcomonitor CCs both have gas tanks inside them. Some portable devices such as RBT IV or Alco-Sensor IV with Memory are in blue vinyl carrying cases that also contain a small dry gas standard. These need to be removed before you ship your instrument to us.

 

 

We also do not need any disposable items. Remove any mouthpieces that are attached to your instrument or are in the case with the instrument.

What if I need an estimate?
Let your Customer Service Representative know that you need an estimate when you call to set up the repair. If you prefer to complete an Incident Form, there is a section on the form that allows you to request an estimate. This section of the Incident Form requests that a fax number or email address for the contact person is included so that Intoximeters can forward an estimated quotation to you for your review and approval.

 

A minimum $40.00 checkout charge will be charged for each instrument requiring an estimate.  This charge will also be assessed for any customer requiring an estimate to issue a purchase order or to approve a payment via credit card.

How can I find out the status of my tech repair?

How do I ship the instrument?
What to ship back with your instrument
If you are having a problem with your printer, send it and its cables, along with your instrument back to Intoximeters. Otherwise we do not need to have the printer or cables.

 

 

 

 

 

 

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU EVER SHIP A GAS TANK WITH YOUR INSTRUMENT.  View the “What should I NOT to ship back” section above.

If the instrument being sent in is an RBT IV you will need to send the RBT and the Alco-Sensor IV instrument, printer and the battery together.

If you are having a problem with your Alcomonitor CC, please remove the dry gas standard and printer and all power cables.  If your printer and/or cables are believed to be problematic, please send them as well but DO NOT SHIP THEM STILL ATTACHED TO THE AMCC UNIT.  All components must be packed securely so they do not move around during shipment.

When sending in an Intox EC/IR device, please remove the dry gas standard before shipment.  Unless directed to do so by Technical Services, do not send the keyboard, power cord, or external printer.
