Damaged On Arrival
If merchandise arrives damaged: it is best to REFUSE it back to the carrier attempting delivery. If you accept the package make sure it is noted on the carrier's delivery record in order for ACQUIRE to file a damage claim. Save the goods AND the original box and packing it arrived in, notify ACQUIRE immediately to arrange for a carrier inspection and a pickup of damaged goods. If you do not notify ACQUIRE of damaged goods within the first 5 days of arrival, our regular return policy will override any claim of damage, and will fall under all current manufacturer restrictions. Call 0800 444 774 or your ACQUIRE account manager to arrange for carrier inspection and a pickup of damaged goods.
