How to Package LCD Screens

LCD Buybacks uses two general packing methods when shipping our screens, depending on which packing materials are available. Following these steps will ensure minimal damage to your screens while in transit. We test all LCDs upon arrival and only pay out for working condition screens (functional LCD, digitizer, and flex cables). Your method of packing is purely your responsibility--these are only guidelines.
