If your order contains large bulky merchandise such as institutional grade portable basketball systems, or several pole, or wall mounted basketball systems, and you do not have a loading dock, you must provide a means of offloading the merchandise from the truck when it arrives. We suggest contacting a local tool rental store and rent a fork lift for these purposes.
Your order will ship directly from the manufacturer. When the freight company picks up your order at the manufacturer they are asked to sign off that the order was received in good condition. The order is then placed on the truck and forwarded to the customer. The overwhelming majority of all orders arrive in pristine condition, however in the event your order is damaged in transit (extremely rare) we ask that you please review the below policies for related occurrences.
MISSING BOXES :
When your order arrives, the customer is required to sign off on the freight company’s receipt verifying that the complete order has arrived in good condition. It is the responsibility of the customer to verify that the number of boxes received matches the number of boxes listed on the freight carrier’s bill of lading. If the amount of boxes you receive does not match the amount of boxes stated on the freight carriers bill of lading it is the customers responsibility to make note of this on the freight carriers receipt. If the boxes appear to be in good condition simply sign the receipt noting that a box was missing from the order and immediately contact Basketball-Goals.com at 866-892-7277. We will then contact the manufacturer to advise them of the missing box and a new box containing the missing item will be immediately shipped to you at no charge to you.
VISIBLE DAMAGE TO BOXES:
When your order arrives it is the responsibility of the customer to verify that all boxes containing your order that are being received appear in good condition. If the correct number of boxes has been delivered and there is no visible damage of any boxes then simply sign the freight carrier’s receipt. If after the freight carrier leaves you subsequently discover that while the boxes arrived in good condition the contents of that box was damaged. This is referred to as concealed damage see “Concealed Damage” below on how to proceed. If visible damage is present to any of the boxes containing your order, the customer is responsible to open the damaged boxes and verify the contents are in good condition before signing off on the freight carriers receipt. If damage to the contents of the box is present the customer can at this point either refuse delivery of the entire order of refuse delivery of that particular box if all other boxes appear to be in good condition. Make a notation on the freight carriers receipt that you are refusing delivery because your order arrived in damaged condition. At this point contact Basketball-Goals.com at 866-892-7277 and we will contact the manufacturer who will in turn verify that your delivery or a portion thereof was refused because of damage and the manufacturer will immediately send you out a new order at no additional charge to you.
Boxes containing missing parts and damage caused by use of the merchandise for what it was intended are covered under the manufacturer’s warranty and are replaced at no charge to the customer.
