Freight / Shipping:
Damaged merchandise will be replaced and/or repaired at our discretion. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to inspect ALL shipments received for freight damage. If you find that merchandise has been damaged while in shipping, simply refuse the shipment unless it is shipped via FedEx / UPS.
If the item is shipped via truck, make the truck driver wait for you while you inspect the item. Failure to inspect the item will result in loss of protection.
If you cannot check the item at the time of delivery, or if the trucking company will not give you the time to check, MARK THE PACKAGE DAMAGED , and keep the box for review later. If the item happens to have concealed damage, we will then be able to process a return claim.
If UPS / FedEx leave the package at the door and you are not available to inspect it for freight damage, you need to call your FedEx / UPS office within 24 hours of delivery and file an immediate freight claim to report damage in addition to calling us for replacement parts.
