If damage is incurred on a shipment while in transit, it becomes the customer's responsibility to file claim with the carrier.

Customer should inspect all packages and contents for any damage upon arrival.
Visual damage to shipping container / contents must be noted on carrier's freight bill.
Carrier inspection must be requested immediately as carrier responsibility for concealed damage expires 15 days after delivery.
Contents must be retained in original shipping container, pending disposition, and BUFFALO ABRASIVES, INC. should be informed of any damage.
