MergeWorks Shipping, Returns, Damages Terms & Conditions

Freight Claims:

MergeWorks Company is not responsible for damage that occurs in transit or in storage. The carrier signs for all goods received in good order from MergeWorks. It is the Customer’s responsibility to examine goods immediately upon receipt and file any claims with Company within 48 hours. Company will file freight claims for loss or damage if the following policy is followed:

  • All shipments should be inspected at the time of delivery and any damages (dented boxes, opened packages, missing packages, holes, etc.) should be noted on the BOL or Delivery Receipt before the driver leaves.
  • Digital photos should be taken of any suspected freight damage and forwarded to Company within 48 hours. Failure to do so negates our ability to file a claim with the carrier and therefore removes Company’s and carrier’s responsibility for any damages.
  • All shortages must be reported to Company within 14 days of delivery. Company is under no obligation to expedite replacement or missing product, nor will Company compensate or reimburse for re-delivery, re-install or any other labor charges.

Failure to follow these policies will result in claim responsibility shifting from Company to Customer.
