Delivery and Shipping Policy:
Midwest Retail Services ships both within the domestic United States and internationally through a combination of dedicated contract carriers, LTL carriers, and small package services dependent on the shipment size. Delivery dates are approximate and subject to change. Seller shall not be liable to Buyer for delays in delivery or installation beyond our control.
Call our office for details at 800-576-7577 with any questions pertaining to your specific order.
Please be sure to inspect all shipments immediately upon arrival. Signing a delivery receipt clear, without reporting damage or suspicion of hidden damage, removes damage responsibility from the carrier and places any damage replacement cost with you the customer. If, upon accepting shipment as clear, you find hidden damage later, you must contact Midwest Retail Services (800-576-7577) and the carrier immediately and request an inspection. Failure to request an inspection within 5 days of receiving will remove responsibility from the carrier and Midwest Retail Services for claims.
Transportation Damage Claims:
Claims for damage on customer selected carriers is the sole responsibility of the customer. Claims for damage on shipper selected carriers must be received within 15 days as governed by the ICC. Claims must have a signed BOL indicating the damage and signed for by the customer and the carrier. Claims for damage on a Midwest Retail Services selected carrier must be received within 5 days. Claims must have a signed delivery receipt indicating the damage and signed for by the customer and the carrier. Photos of damaged freight are extremely helpful.
CLAIMS FORWARDED TO US WITHOUT A SIGNED DELIVERY RECEIPT BY BOTH PARTIES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
