POLICY & PROCEDURES FOR DAMAGES, RETURNS, SHORTAGES, SPECIAL ORDER, ETC
Please report all damages, shortages, shipping errors to CK via mail, phone or fax upon discovery, within 3 DAYS of receipt of merchandise or invoice.
• Shipments via UPS/FedEx Ground
If the shipment contains cartons that are obviously damaged, open or resealed, please refuse the suspect cartons. You may accept the other cartons in the shipment and refuse only the cartons that are damaged, open, etc. Report “concealed” damages to CK within 3 days of delivery. We will contact the carrier to arrange for an inspection of the damage at your location or have the carrier return the carton to us for inspection here. If product is accepted and damages are found, please keep in original package and take pictures of outer box & damaged product.
NOTE: you MUST keep the original shipping cartons (with shipping labels intact) and the packing materials for any claim to be honored until an inspection has been performed or you are instructed otherwise by CK personnel. We will issue you a credit or replacement and start claim proceedings upon notification that damage has occurred.
• Shipments via COMMON CARRIER (TRUCK)
Damages and carton shortages must be noted on the freight delivery receipt. Count the cartons and inspect the shipment carefully BEFORE signing the freight delivery receipt. Request that the driver note on the freight receipt any discrepancies or damages BEFORE paying or signing the freight bill. Claims for shortages or damages must be filed with the carrier by you if the shipment came “freight collect”. Request a claim form from the carrier’s local office.
CK will file claims for shortages or damages on “prepaid freight” shipments only. Please forward the delivery receipt (with the driver’s notations) to us to process your claim. We cannot process your claim for damaged or missing cartons on common carrier shipments if no notation is made on the delivery receipt about discrepancies or damage.
PLEASE COUNT YOUR CARTONS AND INSPECT YOUR SHIPMENT BEFORE YOU SIGN THE DELIVERY RECEIPT.
• SHORTAGES, OVERAGES or ERRORS
Please report shortages, overages, incorrect or defective merchandise to CK within 3 days of delivery. We will determine where an error occurred and if all cartons in the shipment were received. Credit or replacement product will then be issued.
Call tags will be issued for any overages, defective items, or items received due to a CK error that you do not wish to keep. Carefully pack items being picked up by a call tag so damage does not occur during the return.
• RETURNS / CANCELED ITEMS
To return merchandise, please call one of our customer service representatives at 888.484.2517 to receive a RAN (Return Merchandise Number). No merchandise will be accepted without a RAN. We cannot issue Call Tags for items received due to customer error in ordering or that you do not like upon receipt. These items (except FOOD PRODUCTS) will be accepted for return at your expense. Please pack returned items carefully within another carton (where applicable) to avoid damage during the return. Returned items must be in the original condition and packaging and received by us in a salable condition to be eligible for credit and must be returned within 30 days of purchase.
