Protect Yourself Against Damaged Shipments

At Eagle Equipment, we take care to package your order so that it will arrive in the condition it was shipped in. We include many labels and warnings instructing everyone handling it to move it with care.

That is not always the case, and products get damaged by the shipping companies in transit. We recently had a truck that had Eagle lifts on it involved in an accident and the lifts were damaged. Accidents happen, but you shouldn’t have to pay for it, or accept a damaged product. Here is how you can easily protect yourself from a shipping hassle and damaged goods.

Inspect every piece of equipment before signing the delivery ticket! Make the driver wait if they have to. If something is damaged, you must notate the ticket as “damaged” before the driver leaves. If you fail to do this, it is very hard to prove to the freight companies that they are responsible for the damaged shipment. Eagle Equipment is not held responsible for any shipping damage to all products shipped FOB. If you inspect your equipment and it is damaged, it is much easier to replace your product.
