Receiving Your Order:

 

  1. If you are picking up your material at the local terminal you must provide identification. If you are sending an installer or a proxy to pick up the material let the freight carrier know so they can release the material to that person.

  2. Always inspect the material for visible damage before signing the delivery ticket. If you notice visible damage note it on the delivery ticket so a claim can be filled with the freight company. If you do not note visible damage then all visible damage claims will be denied.

  3. Always verify the quantity of the material you are receiving and make sure it matches what is on the delivery ticket. Note anything whether it be additional or less material then what is on the receiver.  

  4. If you notice damage if possible call our claims department 706-712-507 while the driver is still there. In the event there is damage still receive the material and note it on the delivery ticket. This will allow us to replace the material quickier then refusing the shipment.

  5. If the material is being delivered to your home make sure you are able to unload it from the truck. Carpet and roll vinyl are heavy and will need enough people to handle the product. You will need 2 to 5 adults to unload most shipments.

  6. Never install material without first inspecting it. Things to look for; right product and color, concealed damage that you did not notice when you received the material, and visible defects. Any material that is installed with a visible defect will be declined.

 

Manufacture Defects and Warranties

 

If your product is installed and a defect is found you will need to notify the claims department by phone at 706-712-5407 or by email claims@georgiacarpet.com

 

The claims department will walk you through what information and documentation we need to open a claim with the manufacturer. All the required information must be submitted before a claim can be opened with the manufacture.

 

Once a claim is opened with the manufacture, the claims department will notify you if further information is required or a sample of the material is needed. In some cases the manufacturer will order an independent inspector to come inspect your flooring and investigate the issue.

Once the claim is approved we will order your replacement product and ship it as soon as it is available. The claims department will update you throughout the process.

 

All warranties are covered by the manufacturers.

 

Installation issues are not covered under warranty.
