Shipping - Claims - Return Policies

Physical Damage: Is a damaged unit with clear impact or visible box damage.

Visually inspect each box before signing the Proof-of-Delivery (POD). Boxes with visible damage should be refused and indicated on the POD before accepting delivery. Delivery of an exchange unit usually occurs within 5-7 business days. 

DAMAGED OR MISSING – Shortages and/or damages must be noted on the Bill of Lading (BOL)/Packing Slip at the time of delivery. Transworld cannot make claims to carriers for shipments that customers accept as complete and/or where “damage” is not indicated on the bill of lading at time of delivery. A description of the damage or missing freight (shortage) must be noted on the original BOL when signing and accepting delivery. The driver must also sign the document, acknowledging the shortage. Transworld must then be notified within 24 hours by contacting our service department at 305-477-6999 or fax the information to 305-477-6609. The model number, serial number, quantity missing and a copy of the BOL must be included in your correspondence. Upon receiving appropriate notification, Transworld will investigate the shortage/damages and provide status within working days.

DIRECT SHIPMENTS FROM THE MANUFACTURER – When Transworld Services, Inc. processes a sale and ships product(s) directly from the manufacturer, it is the responsibility of the recipient, client or end-user of the product to confirm within 24 hours any damage, shortages, fall-outs, or loss shipments. The recipient, client or end-user must sign an exception at the time of delivery, noting any damage, shortages, fall-outs or loss shipments. The driver must also sign the document, acknowledging the shortage. If the exceptions are not noted at the time of delivery, the request will be denied and Transworld Services, Inc. will not be held responsible.
