What happens if my products arrived damaged?
We take great care in packing your order. On rare occasions, a package may be damaged or lost in transit. All shipments come with carrier insurance and the courier is responsible for any damages of merchandise after it leaves our facility. You must report a defective product or shipping error immediately upon receipt, to qualify for an exchange.
For your protection, please follow these procedures upon receiving your delivery:
1. Carefully inspect each package for any signs of damage
If a package arrives damaged, have the delivery company mark the tracking as 'received, damaged, subject to further inspection'. Note the damage or shortage in quantity on your copy and the driver's copy of the delivery receipt. Have the driver sign and acknowledge the damage on the delivery receipt.
2. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-634-8598 to report the damage.
3. Save the packaging and merchandise for inspection.
If a product shipped to you is unclaimed and consequently returned back to BRACE-IT by the courier, you will be charged the shipping charge incurred for the initial delivery, as well as the shipping cost charged to us by the carrier for the return delivery. If you request that the unclaimed product returned to us be shipped to you again, a second shipping fee will apply.
