TRANSPORTATION DAMAGE CLAIMS
Innovative Marketing Consultants Inc. products are tested for defects prior to shipping. Packaging is regularly inspected by transportation authorities who assume responsibility for both apparent and concealed damages sustained by improper handling. The title passes to the customer upon delivery by Innovative Marketing Consultants Inc. to the carrier. Innovative Marketing Consultants Inc. assumes no responsibility for damages incurred in transit. Once the customer signs for a shipment, the customer has taken possession and Innovative Marketing Consultants Inc. is unable to file a freight claim on behalf of the customer. Shipments found crushed, punctured, broken, delivered short, or otherwise damaged should not be accepted from the carrier and should be returned to Innovative Marketing Consultants Inc. Innovative Marketing Consultants Inc. must be notified immediately of the return to arrange for replacement shipment at no cost.
