Larger items may be delivered via FedEx Ground, FedEx Home Delivery, UPS Ground, or Truck Freight. Items shipping via Truck Freight are clearly marked on our website and catalog.
Some large or heavy items require additional shipping and handling charges due to the bulky nature of these products. If an item requires additional shipping and handling charges we will clearly mark this requirement on our website and in our catalog. In most cases, we charge a "flat" rate to ship these items.
Please note: You will be responsible for any applicable taxes and/or duties that will need to be paid upon delivery.
ALL SHIPMENTS SHOULD BE INSPECTED AT THE TIME OF DELIVERY. DAMAGED PACKAGES SHOULD BE NOTED CLEARLY ON THE FREIGHT BILL. If you notice any damage, you should note it clearly on the freight bill.
If your product is defective, or sustains damage during shipping, and you sign for delivery anyway, without documenting the damage on the freight bill, you are responsible for that product and we will be unable to file a claim on your behalf.
If you discover damage to your product, please contact us at email@example.com right away. Remember to keep all the original packaging for any items that need to be returned. All returns need to be authorized by our customer service department prior to being processed.
If delivered by Truck Freight, please contact the freight carrier at the phone number on the carrier’s bill. After contacting the carrier, please call Off Grid Dwellings Customer Service at (PHONE NUMBER) for further assistance with the damaged shipment.
Please note, signing for your delivery without noting any damages or inability to inspect the delivery on the relevant paperwork legally states that you have received your freight in good condition and Off Grid Dwellings cannot be held liable for any damages, missing pieces, etc. that may be incurred as a result of this decision.
Leaving a note or instructions for the driver is considered to be the same as signing for your products in good condition. If you authorize the freight company to leave freight without a signature, OffGridDwellings.com cannot be held liable for any damages, missing pieces, etc. that may be incurred as a result of this decision.
If you choose to sign for a visibly damaged please note on the relevant paperwork that you are signing for a damaged package.
