In addition the sender will be liable for any damages caused in transit to other shipments or property resulting from sending a consignment that is inadequately packaged.
Items not boxed or sufficiently packed are excluded from our services and could be subject to delay / return / held for collection by the customer. Such goods could also be discarded if:
they are damaged to such an extent such as smashed glass , or cause a concern in regards to health and safety regulations .
If goods have been held for collection by customer and the time limit advised has been exceeded. Please be aware in such a circumstance, the customer will be aware that collection of said goods must be arranged by a certain date or the goods may incur storage charges, and finally discarded at a cost payable by the sender.
If the Sender combines packages without putting them in an outer box and the packets come apart in transit, then no claim can be made against the consignment and the customer will be liable for any surcharges applied to the order.
In the event of claims for damage the Customer shall provide to BookMyPacket within 3 calendar days of the delivery being made photographs of internal/external packaging used and of the damaged item; a quotation for repair costs and a proof of value for the damaged item showing the item and the cost paid/sold for. In the event that a damaged item cannot be repaired, the Customer must provide written proof of this from a relevant specialist before BookMyPacket.com can consider the full claim amount.
In the rare event of damage all packaging must be kept for inspection by the carrier. The item must be available for inspection in the state it was delivered, at the address it was delivered to. If the item is moved/repaired or if the packaging is not kept any claim will be voided. Photographs of the internal and external packaging as well as the damaged item must be supplied to start a claim. Any item must be kept as the company may require collecting the item for salvage purposes. In such instances the customer accepts to make the packet available for collection and the item will not be returned to the customer and the company will become the owners of the item and do with the packet what they see fit.
No claim for loss or damage can be made on any Prohibited / Restricted items. Any additional compensation cover purchased on any Prohibited / Restricted items will be void and non-refundable. It is the responsibility of the customer to check that the item they are sending is not included in the Prohibited / Restricted items list prior to booking and sending the packet.
In order for a customer to make a claim for a damaged packet and/or contents - it is of paramount importance that the packet is signed for as 'DAMAGED' otherwise any claim for damage will be refused. It is therefore the customers / recipients responsibility to check the contents of the packet upon delivery to ensure there is no damage. If the recipient signs for a packet in 'GOOD CONDITION' or 'UNCHECKED' then no claim for damage will be accepted under any circumstances, regardless of any tracking information entered or advises directly from the courier. It is the customer's responsibility to inform the recipient of these terms and conditions.
In the event of damage, a Prohibited/Restricted item may be held for collection by the Carrier. This may be the case if the goods are prohibited and cannot be sent or damaged to such an extent that onward forwarding is not possible. If this is the case you will be notified in writing that goods must be collected within 7 days following this point they will be discarded. If the goods are so badly damaged that the contents are destroyed or that the goods pose a Health & Safety risk then they may be immediately discarded, again you will be notified in writing. No claim can be made on a Prohibited / Restricted item.
Each service includes a limited amount of Transit cover against loss or damage (the amount is dependent on the courier used and was advised at the point of choosing a service). Additional transit cover will automatically be added to your booking if the value of the goods exceeds that of the standard cover offered by the couriers. A charge of Rs.1 will be added for every Rs.10 more the goods are valued at over the standard compensation cover offered by the couriers - to a maximum cover value of Rs.1000. If you do not wish to have this additional transit cover added to your booking - then you must manually remove the additional transit cover by deselecting the tick box during the booking process.
Additional Transit cover applies to per consignment only and not per packet within a multi packet consignment. In the event of a claim, a cost invoice will be needed to prove the value of the consignment(s) and photos (along with the original packaging) must be supplied for all damage claims.
