Claims For Damage

Delivery of all merchandise is the responsibility of the carrier. Always check the condition of the merchandise, shipping container and packing slip in the presence of the delivering agent. If you receive a damaged package or a package that appears to have been tampered with, make a written note to the freight carrier when you sign for receiving the package. A verbal note to the driver is not sufficient. Carefully open package in the presence of the delivering carrier and be sure to save the damaged container as visible proof, this is the first thing the carrier’s agent will ask to see! This insures prompt action, should a claim need to be filed for damaged or broken parts. Remember YOU must file the claim with the delivering carrier.
