FREIGHT ACCEPTANCE:

It is the customers responsibility to inspect cargo in the presence of the driver to check for any damage caused during shipment prior to acceptance/signing. Freight shipments cannot be refused due to any other reason(s) other than damage during shipment. If the goods are found to be damaged during shipment the customer must have the driver notate on the bill of lading the product arrived damaged and the delivery refused. If the cargo is signed for/accepted by the customer prior to inspection this releases the freight company from any and all liability as it declares to both the freight company and seller the goods arrived in acceptable/satisfactory condition with no damage.
