Damaged Goods Form
Carefully inspect all merchandise immediately upon pick-up/delivery. Any damaged goods must be noted on the consignee copy of the freight bill at the time of delivery or THE CLAIM WILL BE DISALLOWED.
Please Note: If the distributor's carrier is used, the manufacturer or distributor's responsibility for the shipment ends at the customer's receiving dock and this form is applicable. If the customer opts for their own carrier, then the manufacturer or distributor's responsibilities for the shipment ends once the shipment leaves the distributor's shipping dock. Should the latter decision be made, the Damaged Goods Form is no longer applicable for use and the manufacturer and distributor is no longer responsible. Your claim must then be addressed between you and your carrier.
All damaged goods must be reported in writing immediately to the carrier for inspection.
With any alleged product damage claims, your distributor must be notified in writing and supplied with appropriate supporting documentation and full particulars within two (2) business days of the order's delivery.
All damaged goods, including original packaging, MUST BE retained by the customer for inspections and/or returned to your distributor.
All Damaged Goods Claims are pending until your distributor confirms and provides an Authorization Number. This response may take up to thirty (30) business days.
