2.How to deal with damaged packages upon delivery?
1. When you receive a package, it is best to open it up and check for damage before signing for it. Inspect the rims/wheels carefully for damage, especially if the box looks like it has been handled roughly during transit. If there is no damage, then it is okay to sign for the product. However, if there is damaged you need to report this on the delivery slip. Alternatively, refuse the shipment and it will be returned back to Light Bicycle. Light Bicycle will re-arrange shipment within 10 business days after receiving the returned package.
If you sign for the package and do not report any damage then there is no recourse we can have against the delivery company and, unfortunately, you would be responsible for purchasing any replacement product.
2. If you receive the package and the carton is in good condition, but the product is significantly damaged during shipment, please contact us within 7 days after signing and keep the original waybill, packing boxes etc. The return request needs to be made by customers. The shipping express company will provide customer compensation number. Please inform us of the compensation number for delivery tracking.
