Check immediately for possible damage upon receipt of your package:

1. Inspect, examine the outside of your package upon delivery. For deliveries where a signature is required, if there is any damage to the box, or it's been determined that any items are damaged or missing, you MUST note the item, the discrepancy, and the condition on the delivery bill BEFORE you sign it! Then call 1-888-414-1722 and report the problem.

NOTE: Do not be intimidated by the driver. They cannot leave until the delivery bill is signed regardless of how much in a hurry they are or how late they are.

IMPORTANT: Discovered Damage – if the box or merchandise is HEAVILY damaged, refuse the delivery and request a Return Authorization number from the driver so the package can be shipped back to us at no charge. The driver CAN NOT force you to accept delivery if there is heavy damage to the box.

Do not move the item, but call 1-888-414-1722 and report the damage. We will begin a damage claim with the shipping company and determine if the damage was possibly carrier caused.
