Upon receipt of merchandise before signing the carrier's bill of lading do the following:

Shortages or any apparent damage:
If there is a box missing or any apparent damage to the shipment, note the details on both copies of the freight bill and have the airline or delivering carrier sign for the shortage or damage before you sign the delivery receipt. The carrier will keep one copy of the receipt and you should keep one to file with your claim.

Concealed damage or loss:
If the damage is not discovered until the boxes are received and unpacked at your greenhouse, contact the carrier immediately and request an inspection. Phone requests are best confirmed by mail.

If your request is refused or inspection is waived by the agent or carrier:
Take down the full name of the person you spoke with and note the date and time of your request.

File a claim:
File a claim promptly with the carrier. Claim forms can be obtained from the carrier. Standard forms are also available and are acceptable. Include the following with your claim:

  • Bill of lading copy
  • Paid freight bill copy
  • Invoice copy
  • Copy of carrier's delivery receipt with notations
  • Inspection report, if available. Waived inspection-note details on the claim form

IN ALL CASES, ACCEPT THE SHIPMENT REGARDLESS OF CONDITION. NO CLAIM CAN BE FILED UNLESS YOU DO.
