What is the warranty policy?
Products come with a manufacturer’s warranty. No other warranties are expressed or implied. For warranty service, you must contact the manufacturer’s authorized warranty service station closest to you. This information is available either with the material shipped with the product, or from the manufacturer directly.
What should I do if my package is damaged or items are missing?
When the delivery is made, it is important that you examine the package for signs of damage, loss, or theft. If the package is open and/or damaged (the security seal is broken), and the contents also appear to be damaged, be sure to open and check the contents with the delivery driver.If the contents are indeed damaged or the package is incomplete the customer must refuse the order. Be sure to contact customer service to report the incident. The driver’s verbal acknowledgment cannot be used as proof of your claim.
For high-value items, we strongly recommend recording a video while opening the package so that, in the event that you need to file a damage claim, you can successfully prove the damage or missing items. Claims may be rejected if they are submitted without photos or videos taken at the time of delivery showing the damaged package or demonstrating the loss of the items, and/or without a copy of the report completed by the driver at the time of delivery, and/or without an invoice or receipt proving the value of the goods. You must send us your claim in writing within 72 hours of the date of delivery. We cannot accept or process any claims for deliveries over 72 hours. To submit your claim, go to MY ACCOUNT, select the order, click on Contact and finally choose the option: I have checked the tracking and I have a problem with the delivery of my order.
What can I do if the tracking says that my package is delivered, but I don’t have my package?
If the driver completed the delivery, then the package’s tracking status or a delivery notice should indicate where your driver left the package. Shipments that don’t require a signature can be left in a safe place at the driver’s discretion. This could include the front porch, side door, back porch, or garage area.
If the tracking status indicates that the driver completed delivery and obtained a signature, the package might have been signed for by a neighbor or another resident at your location. If the driver delivered your shipment to an alternate location, you should have received a delivery notice that indicates where the shipment was left (for example, a neighbor’s house or leasing office).
Check with others at your address, or perhaps a neighbor, to see if someone else has picked up the package. You can also check around the entrances of your residence for the package, particularly on back porches, bushes, garages, grills, or other places that might protect your package from theft or weather. Note that drivers may also use plastic bags to protect your package from the weather.
If you still cannot locate the package, contact the shipping company directly. Shipping companies have their internal systems that can check the delivery status.
Finally if the shipping company confirms that the parcel was delivered and you suspect that the package may have been stolen from an apartment building, the mailbox or the doorstep of your house, you have to report the theft to the police. Please send us a copy of the police report so we can start the claim process with the shipping company.
In order to submit the claim, please log into MY ACCOUNT, select the order, click on Contact and finally choose the option: I have revised the tracking and I have a problem with the shipment of my order.
