Freight Damage Policy
Our shipping terms constitute an FOB agreement. Title to the goods transfers to the buyer as soon as the shipping carrier accepts the goods at our location, under FOB shipping point. It is critical that you inspect your shipment for visible damage before signing for your delivery. Damages that occur in transit are unfortunate, and we do sincerely apologize. These policies are in place to protect everyone and expedite the process of helping you finding a solution as quickly as possible. We advise all dealers and end-users to carefully read our policies which contain information on what to do if your shipment is damaged and outlines procedures for helping you to resolve your issue. Freight companies directly impact these policies as you must follow their rules and regulations when submitting a freight damage claim.
Current Connected, LLC will NOT be responsible for orders damaged in transit (including visible damage, concealed damage, and/or shortage of material). To proactively document your shipment for the Freight Carriers claims department, please follow the process below:
1. Inspect and alert the driver of visible damages before signing the delivery receipt
2. Document all visible damages on the delivery receipt
3. Take photos of the damaged product and/or packaging
4. Do not discard any product or packing materials
5. Notify the Freight Carriers Freight damage Claim team immediately and provide the delivery receipt and photos and other relevant documentation.
Freight Carriers must normally be notified of any visible or concealed damages and/or product shortages within 3 days of shipment delivery. If this time frame is not met, you forfeit all rights to a freight claim and are fully responsible for any replacement costs. Different Carriers may have different policies and time limits regarding claims. You should check with the freight carrier if you have questions regarding their time constraints for starting a claim, or how to file a claim.
Hazardous materials refers to HAZMAT items. Lithium batteries are considered a Hazardous Good by shipping carriers. These HAZMAT shipments cannot be shipped out of the continental U.S. without specialized certifications. Feel free to inquire so we can see if we have a dealer in your region as they may have the product you are looking for in stock without requiring cross-border shipping.
Orders from Current Connected may be eligible for pickup at our Southern Nevada location. In order to be eligible, the product will need to be ordered, and an additional $200 dock pickup fee will be added to your order. This dock fee is non-negotiable, no matter the volume of order. All pickups will require an appointment scheduled with our shipping department at least 48 hours in advance of the pickup time and date. For Pickup, we will require a valid photo ID matching your order, and the credit card the order was purchased with. We will make a copy of your photo ID with your pick up invoice which will also need to be signed.
Change-of-Address / Reconsignment:
If you need to change the address of your shipment, we will try our best to accommodate your request. We can only process a address change or reconsignment if the freight is being sent within the same state as the delivery address provided at checkout. A return to sender will need to be processed if you change the address to a different state than the address provided for your order at checkout. This is for your security, and enhanced fraud protection.
If a Freight Shipment address needs to be changed, we will follow up with the carrier. A $350 reconsignment fee per pallet will apply to your shipment. If a Ground package address needs to be changed, we will follow up with the carrier. A $75 per package change-of-delivery fee will apply to your shipment. If a return to sender needs to be processed because the new address provided for a shipment is located in another state, we will have the shipment returned to our shipping facility. The customer will be responsible for paying the cost of shipping, from the point where the shipment is located, back to our facility and will need to reorder with the correct address for fraud prevention.
Customers may choose to utilize a Freight forwarder address for the delivery address on their order located within the Contiguous US. Once Current Connected has delivered the product to the address provided by the customer, all liability and responsibility shifts from Current Connected to the customer. Freight Forwarding is not a service we offer assistance, recommendations, or will fill out any additional documents pertaining to HAZMAT other than what is already provided.
The customer and Freight forwarder will be responsible for any other items, documents, or information regarding the forwarding of your order. The customer and Freight Forwarder will be responsible for communicating, and arranging any and all other necessary information to successfully forward your order.
Freight forwarders may require other HAZMAT information for Hazardous shipments to be completed depending on if the shipment is going via Air (IATA) or Boat (IMDG). These HAZMAT requirements are not something we specialize in or can provide assistance. We are specialized in Ground (49 CFR) but cannot provide additional information or fill out additional HAZMAT / IMO shipping documents pertaining to forwarded shipments. These documents will need to be executed between the forwarder and customer directly. Most Freight Forwarders will have correct HAZMAT templates depending on the mode of transportation, and evaluate the shipment to provide the correct HAZMAT documents for transit. Oftentimes, there is an additional fee for this so please plan your shipment accordingly and make sure to communicate with your forwarder. Current Connected cannot guarantee the different modes of transportation a Freight Forwarder utilizes, or the various HAZMAT regulations required for each individual shipment that need to be properly documented and followed, and if the forwarder follows these regulations. This is why we do not offer any assistance, recommendations, and will not fill out any additional documents pertaining to HAZMAT, as these rules and regulations are very strict.
All Forwarding will be at the sole responsibility and liability of the customer, handled separately from Current Connected, and completely between the customer and the Freight Forwarder.
NOTE: This policy excludes shipments to HI, and AK. If an item is available for shipment to HI, or AK, it will ship USPS or another ecomomical route of our choice due to the increased cost of air shipment. Large items that ship Freight, and Batteries are not available for shipment to HI, or AK.
