2. Damaged Goods

We provide great care in packaging and shipping our products out to you, our valued customers.  We have less than 0.5% return rate for damaged goods.  Everything we ship is in excellent condition when it leaves our facility.  Sometimes, however, packages shipped via different carriers such as UPS or FedEx may get damaged while in transit.  In the event you should receive any product from us damaged, you should do the following:

    Do not accept delivery of the product(s) and notify the carrier (such as UPS or FedEx) at the time of the attempted delivery that the product or package was damaged.   The product would then be shipped back to us from the carrier and a claim would be made by us to the carrier for the damaged products.   Contact us immediately via email and notify us that the package was received damaged and you refused the delivery. 

    In the event that the package with damaged contents was delivered do the following:

Immediately contact the freight company and tell them you received damaged goods.  You MUST save all packaging material for inspection by the freight company, then; Contact Approach Systems after the freight company inspection.  If you return your damaged items without contacting the freight company, YOU WILL VOID the insurance coverage and Approach Systems will not accept the returned items.  Let us know if the box was damaged on the outside and a description of the damage to the product(s).  Include the tracking number(s) with your correspondence to us and any additional information that is helpful in order to process the claim. 

Deliveries made by UPS or Federal Express often times do not require a signature.  Notification of the damaged product(s) must be made to the carrier on the day of delivery and to Approach by US Mail or email within two (2) business days.  Claims made after this point will not be received and it will be your responsibility to handle the claim directly with the carrier.
