  3. Do not throw out cores and boxes until you are happy with the item’s quality.
  4. Supplier returns take longer than regular returns and are at the directive of the supplier.

Signing for a Delivery:
In the event of a damaged shipment, it is of the utmost importance that the shipment is signed for as damaged. If a shipment is signed for with a clean signature or unchecked, then the transport company cannot be sanctioned. So, inspecting and signing for the shipment correctly makes it easier for all parties involved. Some tips,

The Do’s:

  1. Put one employee in charge of signing for all your goods inwards operations.
  2. When the vehicle is opened, try to inspect the delivery on the vehicle before unloading, (taking pictures from the ground if there is noticeable damage).
  3. When the delivery is unloaded, inspect all 4 sides, corners, top and bottom of each parcel/pallet.
  4. The slightest dent, bend, or imperfection on the outer packaging (no matter how obscure) should result in telling the driver that you need to open the parcel/pallet and inspect the delivery further.
  5. Once this is completed, you can now sign for the goods as you see them i.e., note all damage in detail on the transport carrier’s docket.
  6. If the driver refuses to wait, sign for the shipment as damaged, take pictures and send them to us immediately.
  7. Refused deliveries due to damages, must also be signed as “damaged and refused”.
  8. A driver can change their hand-held PDA to read “Damaged” and add notes, so make sure this is requested and viewed before signing.
  9. Ensure you sign for the correct quantity as well.

The Don’ts:

  1. Only let the employee that physically inspects the delivery, sign for the delivery i.e., office employee signing for goods in the office when they were delivered to the warehouse.
  2. Do not sign for a delivery as unchecked or further inspection needed, if the shipment is damaged, it needs to be signed for as “Damaged”.
