The delivery receipt is a legal binging document. This way, if there is "concealed damage" which you discover after your order has been opened; it will be easier to make a freight claim. If you do discover that there is concealed damage to your order, call us immediately and we will work together to rectify the situation. Total Body Experts will always use the best and most reliable common freight carriers available to us and we go to great lengths to protect your merchandise. Again, please notate any visible damage at time of delivery on the delivery receipt when you sign your name as this gives you full protection for parts/service and/or a replacement. Concealed damaged goods must be noted within a 24 hour time frame from item receipt. Please contact us and carrier. After the claim has been made and accepted by the carrier, a replacement will be sent.
