At the time of delivery you are expected to inspect your order carefully. You should confirm the accuracy of the order and verify that all products have arrived in satisfactory condition. Do not sign for and/or do not accept receipt of any products that are visibly damaged. If there is an issue with your order, please contact us within 24 hours. CECI cannot accept responsibility for any damaged product once you sign for a delivery, but we will work with you to resolve the claim with the carrier. Claims for damages and/or errors must be made with the carrier within 36 hours of receipt.

Larger items may be shipped by Common Carriers. The Carrier will call you in advance to arrange a delivery time for curbside delivery only. If there are larger items or large orders please make sure you have made arrangements in advance to have someone accept and inspect the order. It is very important that you inspect these common carrier deliveries thoroughly before signing for them. Inspect the boxes for external damage, remove the packaging and inspect the contents for any physical damage in the presence of the delivery driver. If there is any damage, visible or not, you must indicate such on the delivery receipt. If a product appears to be damaged to the point that it cannot be used - do not accept it. If you discover internal (non-visible) damages after the delivery has been signed for, please notify us immediately and also the common carrier. Your satisfaction is important to us. We will work with you to replace and/or correct any product that is refused upon delivery, please contact us.
