Damaged Merchandise in Transit: Claims for damage are different with UPS, FedEx and truck freight ("LTL (Less Then Load) Carrier").

Inspect each box for signs of damage; look for crushed, torn, open, or unsealed tape, etc. DO NOT accept ANY damaged goods.
For UPS or FedEx act as follows: If the package is obviously damaged, you can refuse delivery. Call us immediately so we can initiate the replacement process. Any damage found after opening your boxes and examining the merchandise should be reported to us within one (1) business day to expedite the replacement process.
For LTL Carriers (Truck Freight) act as follows: Before signing for delivery, inspect each carton carefully for signs of damage. If you find any damage (crushed, torn, open, unsealed tape or if damaged in any way) it must be noted on the freight bill "at time of delivery". If damage to the merchandise is severe, you MUST refuse delivery. Freight damaged items so noted at "time of delivery" and will be replaced/repaired by the Carrier (LTL Carrier reserves the right to repair or replace) at no charge by the LTL Carrier. Contact the LTL Carrier terminal and advise of the noted damage at time of delivery. They will give you instructions on inspection and filing your claim. If you accept the Damaged shipment You will have all responsibility to make a claim with the trucking company.
If there is no visible or obvious damage (carton appears acceptable at delivery and no damage is noted on delivery receipt), but you discover broken items after opening, call the LTL Carrier within two (2) business days of receipt for instructions in placing a Concealed Damage Claim. Typically, a LTL Carrier will not give you 100% replacement value when filing a concealed damage claim and we will not assume the difference. You are responsible for verifying the condition of your merchandise upon receipt. Please inspect it carefully for shipping/handling damage prior to signing the delivery receipt.
LTL Carrier freight claims are paid directly to you, the consignee, all claims for damage or loss must be filed with the LTL Carrier.

of the damage and other documentation for your own file. If you accept damaged merchandise, the shipper (UPS, FedEx and truck freight ("LTL Carrier")) has the right to inspect the merchandise and original shipping cartons before processing your claim.
