For the most part, the vast majority of the items we ship reach their destination safely without issue. However, when your item is delivered we suggest the following steps:
SHIPPING - WHEN WE SEND TO YOU
At the time of delivery, before signing, inspect the package for visible damage. If the packaging is clearly damaged notify the carrier that you are refusing the delivery because of damage. We recommend taking pictures of the damaged packaging as proof. As soon as possible, please notify us at (888) 575-4765 or firstname.lastname@example.org that your package was refused because of damage and we can prepare a replacement.
If the package appears in good condition and is signed for, any non-visible damage discovered upon opening the package must be reported to ToughOutlet.com within two (2) days of receiving the package. Please notify one of the members of our technical team at (888) 575-4765 or email@example.com.
EXCEPTION: If the product you purchased was a new special order item that was shipped directly from the manufacturer you will need to contact Panasonic at 1-800-LAPTOP5 (1-800-527-8675).
