Damaged Merchandise

All shipments are delivered to the transportation company in good condition and SIMPLE’s liability ceases at that time. If ashipment is received damaged, the recipient must accept the shipment and immediately contact the freight carrier for damage inspection.

If concealed damage is found, notify the delivering carrier at once and request an inspection. Without this inspection, the transportation company will not consider a claim for loss or damage. If the carrier will not perform the inspection, the recipient should prepare an affidavit that they contacted them, noting the time and date that the carrier failed to comply with recipient’s request. This along with the other papers in the recipients’ possession will support the claim. SIMPLE is not liable for any damage or loss that happens during transport.

If the shipment is not delivered in accordance with the quantity of cartons or packages as shown on the Bill of Lading and/or Freight Bill, do not accept it until such shortages are noted on the Bill of Lading and/or Freight Bill. This responsibility lies with the recipient.
