Once a shipment has been picked up by the freight carrier, Miami Missionary Tent has no control over the timely delivery of the shipment, damage or shortage which may occur. Miami Missionary Tent cannot guarantee that a shipment will be delivered on time as estimated by the freight carrier. Carriers accept shipments from Miami Missionary Tent in complete and undamaged condition. We cannot be liable for damage or shortage caused by carriers.
If your shipment has damage/shortage, please do not sign the bill of lading and acknowledge the damage/shortage. This will assist you when you file your claim. We will do all we can to assist you if your shipment has damage/shortage. However, if you do not make a note of the damage/shortage on the bill of lading, it is very difficult to file a claim. Enclosed in your shipment, you will find a packing list. Please unpack the freight and check your order thoroughly as soon as possible.
(ANY DISCREPANCIES MUST BE REPORTED WITHIN FIVE DAYS OF RECEIPT OF SHIPMENT.)
Please note for overseas shipments:

This will also help you to get quick and accurate responses to your questions.
Miami Missionary Tent Company has no control over foreign governments, Customs or officials. Because we cannot guarantee services in a foreign country, we strongly recommend that you research with the foreign consulate (trade desk) to find out the duty and taxes for your shipment prior to exportation.
