IMPORTANT INFORMATION

A. RECEIVING AND HANDLING

The dryer is shipped in a protective stretch wrap cover with protective cardboard corners and top cover (or optional box) as a means of preventing damage in transit. Upon delivery, the dryer and packaging, and wooden skid should be visually inspected for shipping damage. If any damage whatsoever is noticed, inspect further before delivering carrier leaves.

Dryers damaged in shipment:

1.ALL dryersshould be inspected upon receipt and before they are signed for.

2.If there is suspected damage or actual damage, the trucker’s receipt should be so noted.

3.If the dryer is damaged beyond repair, it should be refused. Those dryers, which were not damaged in a damaged shipment,should be accepted, but the number received and the number refusedmust be noted on the receipt.

4.If you determine that the dryer was damaged after the trucker has left your location, you should call the delivering carrier’s freight terminal immediately and file a claim. The freight company considers this concealed damage. This type of freight claim is very difficult to get paid and becomes extremely difficult when more than a day or two passes after the freight was delivered. It is your responsibility to file freight claims. Dryer/parts damaged in transit cannot be claimed under warranty.

5.Freight claims are the responsibility of the consignee, and ALL claimsmust be filed at the receiving end. The manufacturer assumes no responsibility for freight claims or damages.
