Short deliveries & damage to packaging
When the delivering carrier brings your order you MUST count the pieces you receive and look for any damage to the packaging and goods. The number of items you should receive is noted on the carrier's delivery note. If the number of items you receive does not exactly match the number of pieces on the carrier's delivery note, you MUST note the number of pieces you received on the delivery note by your signature. Damage to packaging and goods MUST be noted on the delivery note next to your signature. You must cross out "Delivered in good condition" from the carrier's delivery note. It is very important to check your order. A signature is an acceptance that you have received the whole order undamaged and that the packaging was in good condition. Please let us know within 3 working days.
