The package met our rigid standards and was 100% intact when we turned it over to the carrier. To assist us and to ensure quick and complete service:

  1. Please inspect your shipment carefully. If outward damage (heavy scuffs, crushed corners, tears in the package, obvious tampering) is present please have the delivery personnel make note of the condition of the package. Save all packing material & packing slips when a damage report is involved.
  2. Photograph all sides, top and bottom of the package exterior making particular note of the damage to the packaging. Photograph the interior making particular note of the packing material. Photograph the damage to the goods. The more photographs taken and the more detailed the photographs the quicker a successful conclusion can be obtained. You can email the photographs to sales@nationalstainedglass.com
  3. Every order is accompanied by a packing slip. The contents are checked off when packed, and double checked by another staff member before sealing and shipping. If an item is missing, please examine the box for outward damage when it is possible the contents may have leaked out. Please check through all of the packing material and save all packing slips.
  4. Report any shortages or damage to the sales staff at National Stained Glass as soon as possible. Please call us at 902.405.3747 or email us at sales@nationalstainedglass.com

We insure all shipments to value and keep records of the tracking numbers and shipping details. We will happily handle the claim for you as the shipper. Please be advised that the carrier (Canada Post or FedEx) may contact you to pick up the damaged goods.
