PLEASE CHECK PALLET ON RECEIPT – In order to serve you better, if your delivery reaches you in a damaged condition – you MUST sign the delivery paperwork stating, ‘Damaged on receipt’ and call or e-mail our sales office immediately to report this. We will only be able to replace damaged in transit goods if a claim is entered within 24 hours of receipt. A photo of the damages must be taken, and the exact details of damages/shortages need to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. Writing ‘received unchecked’ or a similar disclaiming statement, will not confer the right to subsequent acceptance of a credit or replacement.
Due to the nature of our business, all our products are stored and handled with the utmost care. We cannot be responsible if damages occur after delivery/collection and do not accept third party claims of any kind.
Our drivers/carriers do not have the right to collect any goods unless previously authorised to do so by our Head Office.
