A POD is not simply a receipt of delivery, but an acknowledgment that the goods arrived intact. All too often, PODs are signed without inspecting your delivery.

We advise confirming that the shipment was intended for you, that the entire order has been delivered, and that it was delivered undamaged.

Anything not indicated on this form before signature will result in Castlery being unable to authorize any damage claims after your driver has left.

Please follow this checklist we have created for you to follow before the Point of Delivery (POD) is signed:

Checklist:
1. Please check all cartons for visible damage.
2. Please confirm you have received the correct items as per the POD and the delivery order.
3. If you have White Glove delivery: Please wait until all items have been assembled and there is no visible damage to the items. Then sign off on POD.
4. f there is serious damage to a carton point it out to the delivery driver.
5. If there is damage: Please take photos of the damage and cartons.
6. Please indicate any property damage caused by delivery on the POD. We will need to photographs to document the damage.

After you’ve gone through your entire shipment and documented any issues, you may obtain the driver’s signature or initials next to your notes about the damaged items on the POD.

*Please do not dispose cartons until the issue is resolved.

DELIVERY RESTRICTIONS

We reserve the right to refuse delivery to specific locations for items we deem at high risk of loss or damage, and also areas that are inaccessible with our home delivery services. In this case, you may choose to have an item delivered using your own couriers, in which case all insurance for loss or damage to the order caused by the delivery will be your responsibility.

We cannot deliver to PO boxes or Parcel Lockers because they're usually too small to accept most of the items we sell. Most of our goods are delivered by courier or specialist furniture carrier directly to your door and require a signature upon delivery.
