During Delivery

We will try to have the delivery service use a lift gate to lower the pallet down to the ground/street level, but due to the size of our pallets, we cannot guarantee this service will be available to you, as regulations state that drivers are not allowed to operate lift gates if anything overhangs from the lift gate. Before removing from the truck or accepting delivery, please visually inspect the shipment packaging and make sure there is no severe damage to the pallet or its contents.

The only tools you will need are a #2 Phillips drill bit and an electric drill to disassemble the pallet and remove each piece one by one (Driver will not allow you to open the pieces separately, but will allow for you to remove each piece from the pallet to get them off of the truck

**Please note, that this delivery does not include inside delivery (Inside ), redelivery (if you missed a delivery and need to reschedule), or any other services that may incur fees. If the driver asks if you would like an inside delivery on site, please deny this, as it will be charged at minimum $100, which you, the consignee or authorized consignee, will be responsible for paying. We apologize, but inside delivery is not available with our shipments.

Assessing Damages

Visible Damages

If there is any damage to the freight that looks like it got into the boxes of the doors or into the frame as such that there could be considerable damage to the door (examples to the left), please completely deny the shipment and send it back to us at Pinky’s Iron Doors. Do not sign the Bill of Lading. If a shipment with significant damage is not denied, PINKYS is not liable for any of the damages. The consignee, or authorized consignee, should inspect the freight for damage(s) and record any obvious damage to the crate upon delivery. Under NMFC rules, the consignee, or authorized consignee, does not have the right to open and inspect the shipping containers prior to signing for the freight. If there are ANY marks or damages to the freight, the consignee or authorized consignee MUST report and notate these damages on the bill of lading prior to signing for the shipment. Contact PINKYS customer service immediately if any damages are found. PINKYS must be contacted the day of delivery if visible damages are found to qualify for a claim. Once received, you must open all packaging to inspect your order. Any concealed damages must be reported to Pinky’s Iron Doors within 3 days of delivery in order to qualify for a claim, so please open the paging immediately after receiving. Any damages not reported within 3 days of delivery will not be eligible for a claim and PINKYS, nor the shipping carrier, can be held liable.

Concealed Damages

When damage is discovered after delivery, it should be reported to Pinky’s Iron Doors Customer Service immediately (within 3 days of delivery). Once contact has been made, consignee will file claim with carrier. Pinky’s Iron Doors will provide this information. The carrier may complete an inspection. Please hold the freight until resolution is given. Do not Install your door if there is damage upon un-packing & inspecting. Once a door has been installed, we will not be able to accept returns for repairs or for exchanges.

For visible damages, the consignee or authorized consignee must report any damage marks to the carrier during delivery to be considered for a claim resolution. Failing to do so will result in an unrewarded claim. The carrier and Pinky’s Iron Doors are not responsible for any un-reported damages after 3 days from date of delivery.

STORING YOUR DOORS

Our doors are packaged for transport only, not for protection against the elements. If for any reason you will be storing your doors until a future install date, please make sure to remove the doors/windows, as well as their frames, from all packaging. Any type of moisture that gets into the packaging will not be able to escape and the packaging could cause the paint to suffocate, causing bubbles and/or rust. If your doors happen to get wet, they MUST be wiped down IMMEDIATELY to avoid this bubbling as well. If you take delivery of your door or window on a day that it is raining, be sure to be mindful of removing all packaging promptly and wiping the units down. Pinky’s Iron Doors is not responsible for any damages due to improper storage of your order or exposure to moisture, water, or humidity. The same goes for doors stored in humid areas. Doors stored in humid areas will need to be opened from transportation packaging immediately to avoid damaging the doors. The Wrapping of the door is only there for shipping/transportation purposes. Examples of the paint suffocating are below.
