In order to progress together and protect all staff, BEST France thanks you for strictly adhering to the operating protocol for the return of any equipment.
• The consumable (bags, prefilters, filter foams, water filters) and accessories (clarinets, breathing tubes, vacuum cleaner) can not be returned to us.

In order to ensure a proper traceability of the maintenance, make sure to place each PPE individually in the bag or the container.
