When shipping oversized items via freight, the carrier will require that you accept your merchandise by signing the bill of landing. Please thoroughly inspect the packaging and the merchandise prior to signing the bill of lading. Any damage to the packaging, including tears, punctures, crushing, water damage, or placement of the item wrong end up, may indicate concealed merchandise damage. If the packaging or your merchandise appears damaged, please document the damage directly onto the bill of lading. You may also refuse the delivery by not signing your name to the bill of lading.
Please retain all packaging materials until you have determined that the merchandise is acceptable. If damage is detected during or after delivery, or if you have refused the delivery, please contact us for assistance at 800.247.6799.
