Let's take the stress out of shipping claims. Here's how:
The process should go quickly if you have submitted your required documentation. If additional information is needed, a member of the team will notify you. Once your claim has been approved for payment, it will be paid in a timely manner.
Each claim is different and as a result, may require different documents. However, almost all claims require proof of loss and documentation reflecting the value of the loss, such as an invoice or bill of sale. In addition, the following items may also be requested: freight invoice, packing list, replacement invoice, repair estimate, photos of the goods and packaging and, if lost, a police report or statement of non-receipt by the receiver.
If there is a damage or missing contents claim you must retain the packaging until you are advised otherwise by your adjuster.
If you experience a loss or damage, you must file a claim as soon as possible to help with potential recovery of the goods and no later than 30 days from the date of shipment delivery or in the event of non-delivery, 45 days from the date of scheduled delivery.
You will receive acknowledgment of your claim promptly by email. If you do not hear anything within 5 business days of submitting your claim, email email@example.com to confirm your claim has been received.
