It is the customer's obligation to follow the tracking on their packages.  Failure to track and ensure receipt when packages show as delivered will not warrant replacement after the fact.  Tracking is best viewed through your online portal.

Upon receipt of your package(s) please immediately inspect your products to ensure there is no damage that was caused during shipment or otherwise.  Customers have 14 days after their packages are delivered to declare any damage claims on their goods for replacement, refund, or exchange or any missing parts.  All packing materials must be kept until the UPS or FedEx claim is filed and completed by Specialty Marine in order to receive a replacement free of charge.  Do not discard of anything until an authorized party approves the disposal.  Charges may be incurred if packing materials are not saved for UPS inspection.  *Please send images listed below to specialtymarinepictures@gmail.com*

In order to proceed with the damage claim investigation, please provide the following (7) digital pictures.

  • Photo 1: A photo of the damaged item.
  • Photo 2: A photo showing the damaged merchandise, inside the original box, with all of the original cushioning re-wrapped how it was originally sent (picture should show the placement of the merchandise and packaging inside the box).
  • Photo 3: A photo of the packaging material used inside the box (e.g. bubble wrap, Styrofoam peanuts, cardboard dividers, etc.).
  • Photo 4: A close-up photo of the shipping label with tracking number (please zoom in enough to read the tracking number which usually begins with 1Z).
  • Photo 5: A close-up photo of the box manufacturer's certificate (BMC), if available. The BMC is a round stamp that details either the bursting strength of the box or the edge crush rating of the box. The BMC is generally found on a bottom flap on the outside of a corrugated cardboard box.
  • Photo 6: Two photos displaying all 6 sides of the package (1 photo should display the top and 2 sides, the 2nd photo should display the bottom and the opposite sides).
  • Photo 7: Dimensions of the box including the package height, length, and width provided in the body of the email.

 

If an order is placed and shipped and then it is determined by the customer that the address was entered incorrectly and the package requires an intercept, the customer will be required to pay for additional FedEx charges to reroute the package.  If no credit card is on file one must be provided or an invoice for the charges can be sent to PayPal.

 

International shipping quotes do NOT include duties or taxes which must be paid upon arrival in the destination country and customers must provide a phone number for customs prior to Specialty Marine shipping the package(s).

Any products that are to be returned to Specialty Marine should be repackaged with the utmost care to avoid damage during return shipping.

  • Stainless rails are to be unused (wrapped in original foam, no scratches/dings) and hardware (T-fittings, bases, stand-offs) in their original bubble wrap.  Rails must be bundled together along with hardware secured tightly to rail to avoid damage in return transit.  Original or new foam/padding should be secured to the ends of rail to avoid sharp edges piercing the box or breaking out rail sleeves.
  • Rub rails are to be clean, uninstalled, and recoiled in the box and include all hardware.
  • Damage to goods (including rail hardware) during return shipment due to improper packing will be subject to a deduction in the refund amount.
