An Endorsement of “STI” (Subject to Inspection), “STC” (Subject to Check or Said to Contain) are not accepted terminologies for damage/s or loss.
PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT any damaged products. Please report to us within 12 hours from delivery with photos that shows damaged item. No claims will be accepted if you report us after 12 hours from delivery or if it is accepted by the signatory without"Damage/Loss". We do NOT cover any damage or loss on the item if you give the authorization to courier for drop off, or POD (delivery receipt) is signed for clean.
