Damaged or Lost Packages

While we work with some of the most trusted shipping providers in the world, mistakes can happen. We’re here to help make this process as painless as possible, but there are steps we have to take due to policies in place by our shipping providers. 

If your package was left by the shipper unsigned or signed fraudulently and ends up lost or damaged, you will not be reimbursed for freight or parts directly by Ground Up, Inc. When this happens, we must file a lost or damage claim with the shipping provider so they can reimburse you for their mistake. Their decision is based on findings by their internal team and we have no control or say in the final decision. If you find yourself in this situation please call 203-235-1200, press 3 for customer service.  

Always make sure you check all possibilities before starting the damage claim process.

  • Check around your property for any packages that may have been placed out of sight.
  • Check with your neighbors to see if your package was accidentally delivered to their residences.
  • Call the shipping company, they should send the driver back to your residence within 24 hours.

 

If the driver cannot locate the package, a claim will be initiated with the shipping company. Claims take approximately 30 days to settle. During this time, we are not responsible for replacing any lost orders while your claim is processing. All replacement parts will have to be reordered until your claim is settled.

International Duties & Taxes

The recipient of international shipments may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient’s country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be paid by you the recipient; Ground Up, Inc. SS396.com has no control over these charges and can’t predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from city, province, and country; you should contact your local customs office for more information.

Please Note: When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
