Receiving Freight: Clear Delivery
Receiving freight can be as easy as sending it if you follow a few steps:

Stay in contact with your supplier to find out when your shipment was shipped, what carrier it was given to, and an approximate arrival date.
When the shipment is delivered, inspect it immediately for obvious signs of damage.
Compare the number of shipping units received to the number listed on the delivery receipt.
Sign the delivery receipt.
The driver will help you receive your shipment and answer your questions.

While the driver is there, compare the pieces of freight you are receiving to the delivery receipt. If condition and quantity of your freight is acceptable, the driver will ask you to sign the delivery receipt. The driver will give you a copy, and take the original signed copy with him/her (as proof of delivery) for his/her employer's records.

A signed delivery receipt with no exceptions, is called a "clear delivery." Clear deliveries mean that there were no shortages or visible damage at the time of delivery.

Any items that are incorrect or missing from your shipment must be reported within 10 calendar days of delivery. It is the buyer's responsibility to inspect any product to ensure nothing is incorrect or missing before beginning installation. Missing or incorrect parts reported within the timeframe stated above will be shipped by ground shipping or freight carrier (whichever applies). If the buyer wants the missing or incorrect parts that can be sent overnighted or 2-day aired, the customer will have to pay the applicable costs for those services.

Returns will be accepted only up to 10 calendar days after the buyer signs for delivery and only under the condition that the buyer arranges for shipping back to Teddy Bear Pools & Spas Direct and pays all applicable shipping charges to and from Teddy Bear Pools & Spas.
