If damage is noticed, customers should be sure to bring it to the driver’s attention immediately. Make sure all damage is marked on the Bill of Lading before signing it. Pictures of the damage are greatly appreciated. The carrier’s insurance company is responsible for the estimates and repair, so we must follow their process. You must alert us as soon as possible.
