Shipping/freight charges, crating charges, duties and any applicable taxes are not included in the quoted sale price and will be invoiced as separate line items or under a separate invoice. The original quoted price of a BRADLEY product typically does not include the estimated freight charges, unless specifically requested by the Customer at the time of quoting. Please be aware that many of our furnishing products require special care, handling, packaging and environmental conditions for safe transport to your location.
Shipping can be arranged by your BRADLEY account representative or be handled directly by the Customer using a common carrier or delivery service. Once the order is transferred to any third-party shipping company, the products become the property and responsibility of the Customer and/or your agent (the carrier.)
BRADLEY cannot be held responsible for losses, product damage, shortage or delays resulting from the actions of any third-party transport company. BRADLEY is not responsible for damage due to heat, cold, sunlight, moisture, chemical substances, misuse or neglectful or inappropriate handling during transport, storage or installation.

When shipping is arranged by the Customer, BRADLEY is not liable for any product damage once it transfers to your agent on our dock. A representative of the Customer specified carrier will be required to inspect the product and sign our shipping release document that the product was in satisfactory condition at the time of pick up at the BRADLEY warehouse.

It is the Customer’s responsibility to inspect all orders for accuracy, defects, and damage incurred during transport at the time of receipt. Any claims regarding product quality, order accuracy or damage incurred during shipment must be made within 48 hours following receipt of goods.
If the order is delivered to your warehouse, your client’s location or a third-party receiving house, the receiving party must inspect all merchandise immediately upon delivery. If the product is crated or boxed, the product must be unpackaged and inspected for concealed damage before the shipping company leaves the premises.
If third-party shipping is arranged by BRADLEY, once the product has been received, inspected and signed for by your receiving agent, the product becomes the property of the Customer and BRADLEY responsibilities ceases, and therefore no future claims of damage due to shipping will be considered.
For shipments organized and handled by the Customer, if the product has been damaged during transport, the Customer must collect for damages from their carrier directly by notifying the carrier’s claims department immediately. If damage is not detected at time of delivery, request a “concealed damage report” from your carrier. Note that all packaging materials must be saved for inspection in concealed damage claims as well as photographs of the damaged product should be provided to document the claim.
It is the responsibility of the Customer to ensure that their chosen shipment receiving agent is aware and capable of these duties, responsibilities and liabilities. It is the responsibility of the Customer to discuss these policies and responsibilities with their selected carrier and receiving agent.
