This link discusses shipping other forms of technology. UPS can help with secure packaging to make sure the item arrives safely and without damage.


When shipping anything back to the University of Idaho, please submit a ticket to OIT if you haven’t already done so, and include the ticket number on the outside of the package in which you ship your device (formatted on the package as "TDX #nnnnnn" substituting your ticket number for the "nnnnnn"). This will allow ITS to properly process your device package when it is received. 

In your ticket to OIT please include the shipping date and tracking number of your shipment. OIT will track the shipment and confirm it has arrived in the ticket.
