    Send in

    If I'm going to send my TV to its manufacturer's service center, is it ok to say "I'm going to send in my TV for service". Is the "in" word necessary. Can't I just say it like this "I'm going to send my TV for service"?

    Thanks.

    Re: Send in

    You could 'send it for service', 'send it in for service', 'send it out for service', 'send it off for service', 'send it round for service', 'send it back for service'.... It depends on the context.

    'send it in for service' implies that you know there's a servicing place, that you know the service is available in your case, and that you know the address. You might say 'I want to send it for service, but I don't know where to.'

    Yes. You normally 'send it to be serviced', 'send it in for servicing', or 'send it in for a service'. You could also 'send it the the service depot' (pronounced /'depәɷ/).

    Wait, another question please. What are the differences of these. I know that "send it back for service" means sending the thing again to the service place where it was serviced before. How about the others? Are these the same eventhough they use different prepositions?

    They're all equivalent. If you're talking about a car (that has specified/regular service intervals) you might also say 'take it in for its service' - which means the same too, but implies that the makers specified a schedule.
