Freight, install, turnkey and any additional services vary on a case to case basis and will be quoted at the time of order placement depending on the shredder and the place where its been shipped. All industrial shredders, Balers, Shredder Baler Combinations are shipped “Freight Paid” by the customer.
No reduction from invoice may be made for loss or damage in transit. Clary Business Machines will hold a clear receipt from the transportation company showing shipment is in proper order when picked up from our facility. Our responsibility is terminated when shipment is turned over to the originating carrier.
For the customer’s own protection, if goods are damaged in transit, do not sign the delivery receipt until the carrier’s agent notes the nature and extent of damage on the freight bill. The
goods should still be accepted. In case of concealed damage, a damage inspection report must be obtained from the carrier within 30 days. It is the agent’s duty to inspect the shipment and provide this report. Customers should insist on receiving a report. Customers should place claims immediately with the carrier’s office.
If the final destination area is experiencing an unexpected service delay (severe weather, natural disasters, unscheduled events, etc.) please add at least 2 -3 business days to the estimated delivery date.
