WHAT TO DO IF YOUR DELIVERY IS DAMAGED
Valken Sports makes every effort to package, palletize and otherwise protect all purchased items for safe delivery and works closely with our carriers to ensure timely and undamaged delivery. However, damage DOES occur. Valken STRONGLY encourages all dealers to insure all shipments in order to provide the best protection for any possible loss. When a delivery from Valken is damaged in transit Valken is able to make claims towards a positive resolution, but the assistance of the receiving customer is critical in these cases. To pursue these issues with the carrier, it is the responsibility of the receiving party to properly document the loss and follow this protocol in order to provide all parties with the necessary information to facilitate a resolution:
To file a claim Valken must present:
1) the delivery order copy with damage/shortage noted - this is the best and strongest evidence. Driver must have copy to take back to their dispatch to log/add to shipment records.
1.b) if there is visible damage but no count was done to confirm the extent of loss/damage then write on delivery order a short statement: "visible damage, pending final count after inspection" or similar statement. I know drivers are rushing in-and-out so if no better option, then a statement must be added, signed by driver, copy to Valken. Customers must keep copy of all records exchanged.
2) photos of shipment as received - exterior, clearly showing all damaged areas.
3) photos of content damage - clearly showing damaged items with and without box - wherever damage occurred.
4) some drivers will call in the damage to their terminal and get a confirmation number proving damage existed at time of delivery. If this happens, please have the customer record that confirmation number on the delivery order and we will use it as additional evidence to support our claim.
Please also further note:
- Photo evidence received days after delivery without a marked delivery order is not valid. Such claims will be rejected if delivery order was signed clean and clear. Concealed damage is also rejected if not reported timely, because then it is hard to prove who really caused the issue: trucker or cnee's warehouse/employee while handling on site.
-Customers MUST NOT SIGN "Clean and Clear" delivery for damaged shipments. They MUST cross off such line from the paperwork and handwrite in their findings (point 1.b) have driver sign, make copy for driver plus for their own records and then release the driver.
They can also simply reject a damaged delivery in full.
Again, Valken STRONGLY encourages all dealers to insure all shipments in order to provide the best protection for any possible loss.
Please be advised that should a shipment incur damage during transit, Valken cannot be held responsible should the above procedures not be adhered-to or in the event that shipment be uninsured.
Valken sincerely appreciates the cooperation of our customers throughout these extraordinary times.
