Once your Merchandise is received, it will remain insured for this same amount until sold. In the event that your package is lost we will require that you: provide proof of shipping receipt, provide receipt of proof that goods are lost, and file a claim within 30 days of loss. In the event your package is damaged we will require that you: provide proof of shipping receipt, provide receipt of proof that goods are damaged, demonstrate that the package was not damaged prior to shipping, and file a claim within 30 days of loss.
