All goods are shipped FOB Egan Visual, however, in the event of freight damage we can assist your receiver with the claim. The legal responsibility of Egan Visual ceases when it turns the shipment over to a common carrier. The buyer has the sole obligation of seeking recourse against the carrier. All freight is given to the carrier and signed for in good condition. It is the responsibility of the receiver to sign for the goods in the presence of the carrier and note the condition in which they are received. Freight claims should be filed with the carrier.
Follow these procedures immediately upon receipt of shipment:
- You must inspect the freight at the time of delivery and note all damages on the Bill of Lading and Delivery Receipt (POD). If there is obvious and severe damage, receiver has a right to refuse delivery. Receiver also has a duty to mitigate the loss. For example, you should only refuse affected product.
- Upon discovery of the damages, the receiver must immediately report the damages to the carrier, asking for immediate inspection and an inspection report.
- The notification of damages must be followed up in writing by fax or e-mail.
- Unpack and inspect. Check your contents within three (3) business days. If the shipment was delivered without noted damage but has CONCEALED DAMAGE, receiver typically has a very limited time to report it to the carrier and request a `concealed damage inspection`.
- Tag and keep any packaging in which damaged goods are received in its original condition.
- Contact Egan Customer Service to initiate a Support Case and make arrangements for replacement product.
