STORING EMPTY CONTAINERS Properly labeled empty shipping cartons will be picked up, stored and returned after the show. Labels are available at the ICES Service Desk or from your ICES Account Executive and are for empty storage only. Depending on the size of the show, it can take from two to twelve hours to return empty crates. Do not store any items in crates marked "empty". OUTGOING SHIPMENTS An Outbound Material Handling Form/Bill of Lading must accompany all outgoing shipments. Shipping Information, outgoing forms and labels will be available at the ICES Service Desk. Exhibitors selecting non-official carriers will need to make their own arrangements for pickup. Make sure that someone from your company wil be on-side to oversee the outbound shipments of your display and product. MACHINERY LABOR AND EQUIPMENT Labor and equipment for uncrating, unskidding, positioning, leveling, dismantling, recrating, and reskidding machinery and/or equipment must be ordered separately. Place your order for this labor using the Forklift & labor Order Form. If your material requires specialized rigging equipment, please notify us promptly so that we can make arrangements. When possible, supply your own rigging equipment with shipments and pre-rig your material. INSURANCE All of your goods should be insured by your own insurance policy. Although we do our best to handle your goods as our own, there are many variables in shipping and handling that can affect your exhibit and products. ICES has published ICES Limits of Liability and Responsibility that are in your service kit. Please read them carefully. It is recommended that your goods be insured.
