Items may be shipped back to the US for repair. Before doing so, consider these:
- The transit time from Las Campanas to Pasadena is about two months. It takes a few weeks to get export permits from Chile and consolidating other items for shipment takes a few more days.
- Shipping costs are about $2.50/pound ($5.00/kg) each way plus customs brokerage charges. Low value items might not be worth sending back for repair.
- Expect shipping to LCO from Pasadena to take two weeks after the package leaves OCIW. In most months there are two air shipments but any of these may be cancelled if we don't have enough to ship.
