Transit damage - for deliveries to your business address

For fragile items that could suffer transit damage (such as hard SUP boards) you should inspect the affected item before signing. If you receive an item that has been damaged in transit you must write "DAMAGED" rather than signing for the delivery. At this point you can refuse delivery due to damage or if you feel it can be repaired and you are happy to accept the goods then write "DAMAGED" and take the item. You must at this point (and no later than within 24 hours) contact us to discuss a discount and so we can begin the claim process. Use / 01803 712140).
Transit damage - for drop-ship deliveries
