As consumers ourselves we understand the risk involved in receiving items purchased online.
Any item shipped via FedEx Freight requires someone present for delivery. We will call or have the trucking company contact you ahead of the scheduled delivery to ensure someone is available. You can always make arrangements to pick up the item(s) at the appropriate freight terminal, but please keep in mind the size and weight of the unit(s) when deciding how you will transport them.
All orders with a purchase value of over $500 will require someone present to sign for the package. If no one is available the carrier will leave a note with instructions for pickup.
For orders of lesser value, the carriers will not require a signature. They will deliver the product(s) at their discretion.
When you receive packages mailed via USPS or FedEx please open them and inspect them for damage. Please look over the attached packing slip & your order details to ensure that all contents have arrived.
If you notice that your package is missing items or contains incorrect items, notify us within 3 business days of the package delivery to correct the situation. Include pictures and any relevant information you may have to help resolve the situation.
If the package is damaged please notate it on the delivery slip (if provided) and refuse the package. After doing so, contact us as soon as possible within 3 business days, including pictures and any other relevant information about the type of damage. If your fail to report within 3 business days we will no longer be able to assist. You will have to contact the shipping carrier yourself. We will not be able to get involved.
The same 3 business day policy applies both for missing and for damaged freight shipments.
Before signing and completing the delivery stage, please make sure to look at the packing slip and confirm all items are included in the shipment. The shipment will be neatly packed and secure, but if it arrives damaged or opened, notate it on the bill of landing.
If any part of the freight shipment arrives damaged, notate which item was damaged and describe the damage on the bill of landing. Then, refuse the damaged item. Only refuse the damaged items in the shipment.
A replacement for the damaged item will only be sent if the item was refused and was given to the carrier for return shipment.
Once more than 3 business days pass between delivery and any claims we will not be able to help establish any returns or exchanges directly with us. We can still help you file a claim with the respective carrier if need be.
