  1. Courier Choice – We prefer Fedex

Although the courier choice needs to be decided by you.  DCVG have a preferred choice of Fedex because they are the best courier in the UK and deal with imports and exports professionally and consistently.


  1. All equipment should be shipped to the following address:

FAO: Repair Dept / Dr. Sarah Leeds


Greenbank House,

Swan Lane,

Hindley Green,

Wigan WN2 4AR



  1. Packaging

All equipment should be properly packaged, preferably in sturdy packing material due to the fragile nature of the equipment, particularly the DCVG meter which has glass components. Any loss or damage arising from improperly packaged goods will be chargeable.


6. Avoid Extra Charges

To avoid extra charges it is best to deliver repairs and re-calibrations to our door.  If you do have to deliver to an airport, the closest airport to us is Manchester Airport.  Please try to avoid delivering to Heathrow Airport which is over 200 miles away from our offices, by delivering to Heathrow airport there will be a lot more charges and delays in receiving your equipment.
