Shipping & Repackaging

Repackaging the LUCCA A53/A53 Mini (Vivaldi II/Mini Vivaldi II)

Below you will find the step-by-step process on how to properly repackage the La Spaziale LUCCA A53/Vivaldi II Espresso Machines.

If you are repackaging the machine without the original packaging, please follow our instructions here for Repackaging with Instapack.

It is extremely important to repackage machines correctly. If machines are repackaged incorrectly and damaged upon arrival at Clive for repair or return Clive will not cover the cost of the damages. You will first need to drain your machine. Watch our video for how to drain the boilers for your Direct Plumbed A53. Or if you have the water reservoir model, check out the instructions for draining your A53 Mini/Mini Vivaldi boilers.

Once the machine is drained, follow these steps:

1. For Plumbed in units: Remove braided line from machine, coil it up and place it underneath the drip tray grate.

2. Coil up the power cord, place it around the grouphead and put the accessory box underneath it to hold it in place. It is important for the end of the power cord to be facing away from the machine so it doesn't scratch the machine.
