Lyon Freight Policy and Claims Procedures
Lyon takes pride in ensuring that your order is delivered in superior condition. There may be times when a product arrives damaged or missing from your shipment. To ensure your ultimate satisfaction, please see the below freight policy.
ALL MATERIALS MUST BE INSPECTED UPON ARRIVAL AT YOUR DESTINATION. THIS INSPECTION MUST OCCUR PRIOR TO SIGNING FOR THE DELIVERY AND SHOULD INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
- Verification that all items have been received.
- A complete visual inspection of the product and its packaging. If there is evidence of damage on the packaging or pallets, a more thorough inspection should be completed.
- Upon completion of the above inspection(s), if damage is found or there are parts missing, the delivery receipt from the carrier must be signed as damaged or missing. This must be done with the carrier present. If the delivery receipt is not noted as damaged or missing, claims to Lyon for replacement parts may be denied.
