Delivery to inviduals: Additional delivery fees will be charged for deliveries in residential areas. We suggest you provide us with a work address where you can receive the parcel during the day to avoid these fees.


Damaged Merchandise / Missing Products
As soon as the merchandise leaves our warehouse with the carrier in good condition, our liability ceases. Upon delivery of your merchandise, take a good look at the box while the driver is there. If the box is damaged, you can refuse the shipment or you can open it to see if the merchandise is in good condition. If you accept the merchandise, have the driver note any and all damages or losses, no matter how slight. If the content of your boxes is damaged, it is your responsibility to call our company within 48 hours to claim the damage. After that period of time, the carrier can refuse to pay claims for hidden damages. We will call the carrier ourselves to minimize any inconvenience to you. In any case, keep the damaged boxes for inspection.
