As an aside to the point of your post, I have a question.  Basically, what
if your "gear" is damaged during the course of inspection.  Who pays for the

I've ALWAYS been nervous about just "handing over" my $6k (at the time)
notebook computer (or my much more than $6k camera gear) to someone who
"does not care for it the way I do" (I tried to say this as nice as I
