The order placed upon Cintrex AV and associated paperwork given Cintrex by Customers should be complete as far as Customers' instructions and expectations of Cintrex so that we deliver a
quality completed product per customer instruction.
Customers place order contents (tapes, film, cassettes,
photo’s, etc.) in appropriately sized bags and container box, and take excessive
care to make sure contents are securely protected from the rigors of common
freight carrier shipment. The packages contain (most times) very valuable,
one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable items; and Customers should take appropriate precautions to make sure the
container box survives shipment to Cintrex.
Shipping & Handling:
After order placement Customers can create their UPS shipping labels for shipment of their package(s) into Cintrex. Place the label on the package, and then either drop the package off at the nearest UPS store or
drop- box, or hand the box over to their UPS driver. Customers also
have the option of using their own common carriers and then receiving shipping
credits from Cintrex on the final invoice.
Shipping is free on orders with a retail value of $100 or
more. A $10 shipping and handling fee is
applied for orders greater than $50 but less than $100; and a $25 shipping and
handling fee is applied to order values less than $50.
Order Receipt and Processing:
receipt into Cintrex, the Customers' order form and associated contents
are catalogued and tracked through the Cintrex transfer process. The outside of
the container box is marked/labeled with date of arrival into Cintrex, due date
back to the Customers, items are barcoded with Customers' names, and our system orders note all special instructions noted on the order form.
service order is worked on by experienced Cintrex technicians.
order form instructions are followed as written and marked by the Customers. If questions come up, the
Cintrex technician will call the Customers for clarification. Common questions
come up over order of transfer (which items get transferred first), title
spellings, table of contents format, music selection, how many copies, whether
a need exists to combine contents onto fewer disc’s, file formats, and due
the order is finished, Cintrex packages together the old contents and media,
the new media with the transferred contents, a Cintrex invoice and a packing
slip listing container’s content. The box is shipped via UPS, and shipped in time to meet the requested due date. Shipping is
always via UPS ground, unless the order is a rush order, and then extra
shipping charges will be applied as necessary to meet due dates.
shipping package has a tracking number, and Cintrex is able to provide order
status and shipping status as requested by Customers. Customers are emailed the UPS tracking number upon return shipment.
turn-around time is 2 weeks within Cintrex from receipt of order to return of an order. Customers can make arrangements with Cintrex for shorter intervals as
necessary. Rush orders may cost more for additional labor to meet necessary due
receipt of finished service products, Cintrex asks the Customers to

however, there is a limitation of liability statement on our order forms that
protects both Cintrex and the Resellers; it is important that customer

processing service will be limited to the replacement cost of a non- exposed
roll of film and/or a blank media of similar size. Except for such replacement,

Cintrex AV Process for Media Conversion & Transfer:
The transfer steps and processes are very similar for
scanning film and video tapes, photo’s, negatives and slides. Some of the initial ingestion tools may be
different at the transfer stations because of the differing nature of specific
media access, but once the digitized content is placed on the network, then the
processes involve the same computer tools and data appliances, the same new
access media and storage options, and the same business processes. The common steps in the process are:
of order and cataloging physical contents, including inspection of customer
supplied contents for damage, and noting areas in need of repair
