Damaged Product and Freight (LTL – less than load) Shipments

Packaging - Please retain all packaging materials until you are confident your item is in good working order. Should you need to return an item to Tillman Tools, all packaging materials including wood crates and large boxes must be included. If you have uncrated an item you will be responsible for rebuilding that crate, which might include the need to purchase and fasten new wood supports at your own expense.

Damaged Products - Please inspect your delivery prior to signing the receipt from the carrier. Inspecting your delivery should include the outside packaging AND the contents of the package, as well. Notes regarding possible damage should be written on the bill of lading prior to signing for any merchandise. If you sign for delivery without noting possible damage on the bill of lading, you will be responsible for filing a freight claim with the carrier and arranging for any repair or return of the damaged good.

Suspect Damage - On occasion, the outer carton may look damaged, but the product inside the box is perfectly fine. If you suspect concealed damage, notate "Possible Freight Damage" on the delivery receipt while the driver is present. This way, if you discover later that the product is damaged, the remedy of a freight claim is easily handled.

If after inspection you do find actual damage, please contact the Tillman Tools Custom Care team immediately by phone so we can assist with repairing or replacing your damaged item. Please note that engine powered equipment that has been gassed or oiled must be taken to a service center for assistance (additional information listed below).

Obvious Damage - If you notice obvious damage, please do not sign for the delivery and follow these steps:

  • Refuse Delivery - Do not sign for the delivery.
  • Call Us Immediately - Freight claims are time sensitive and must be completed immediately.
  • Do Not Email - It is important that you call and speak with our Customer Care team; email should not be used to communicate a package that has been refused.
  • Once we are notified of the damage, arrangements will be made to send a replacement.

Important Information about Engine Powered Equipment (Gas and Oil):

Engine powered equipment cannot be returned once it has been gassed or oiled due to federal shipping regulations. Once a product has been gassed or oiled, it needs to be taken to an authorized service center for any repair or technical assistance which may be covered under warranty. Gassed and oiled product cannot be returned to Tillman Tools for exchange, credit, or refund.

Tillman Tools is unable to arrange transportation of gassed or oiled items to or from an authorized service center. We are also unable to arrange for a technician to come to your location for service.

Cost associated with transportation to a service center, or repair work outside of what’s covered under warranty, is at the sole expense of the customer and will not be reimbursed by Tillman Tools.

Although we are unable to expedite replacements, be assured that we will work diligently with the carrier to resolve these matters in the most efficient way possible. You must contact us within two weeks of the actual scheduled delivery to guarantee that a lost claim with the carrier can be made.

I accidentally used the wrong address on my order. What should I do?

If a package is returned to Tillman Tools due to an incorrect shipping address provided by a customer, the customer will be responsible for any additional shipping costs or the return shipping cost, as well as the re-delivery cost. Tillman Tools is not responsible for packages delivered incorrectly due to incorrect shipping information. If the item qualified for our "Free Shipping" promotion, it will not be valid due to the error on the customer's part, and the customer will be charged for all actual shipping costs. In some cases, we may be able to reroute the package to the correct address. However, you will be responsible for the costs associated with rerouting the package.

How do I cancel my order?

Because we ship orders as quickly as possible, it may not be possible to stop your order from shipping. Once shipped, we are not able to cancel your order. If you decide you do not want to keep your order you may contact our Customer Care team to receive an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization).
