Things you MUST know about motor freight:
- We will make every attempt to contact you with your PRO (tracking) number of your shipment and a local phone number for your carrier. We will tell you the estimated delivery date of your freight and how many pieces you are expecting. It is the customer’s responsibility to coordinate deliveries with the freight carrier.
- It is the customer’s responsibility to remove the freight from the truck upon arrival. The drivers are usually helpful, but technically it is the consignee (customer’s) responsibility. Please be aware of this and schedule to have help available when your shipment arrives. Certain products are palletized and you may need something to cut metal banding and work gloves to safely offload your freight.
- It is the customer’s responsibility to inspect for freight damage upon arrival. If freight is damaged, it MUST be noted on the delivery receipt BEFORE you sign. It is the customer’s responsibility to choose to keep the freight and file a claim or refuse damaged goods for return and replacement. If you have freight damage, please call us at 877-496-7883 and we will give you additional information about the claim or return process.
- Carolina Gym Supply Corp. will not assume responsibility for any freight damage and all claims must be made by the customer directly to the freight carrier within the parameters of the carrier’s claim process.
