Time Limitations for Notification of Claims
Damaged in Transit
As some damage cannot always be identified on delivery, the Customer must sign the drivers manifest as unchecked. Should any damage be identified on opening the package, partys-are-us must be advised immediately or in any event within 48 hours of the exact nature of the damage. It is imperative that the Customer does not dispose of any of the packaging, as this will be required to affect a claim against the carrier. partys-are-us will handle the claim and organize collection of the damaged goods and replacements to be sent free of charge. We cannot accept any claims for damage if the above time scales are not followed.
It is the Customers responsibility to sign for the correct number of packages that are delivered, the Customer is required to check that the number of packages delivered equal the number of packages on the delivery drivers manifest/consignment note.
