Missing or Damaged Items

If an item is missing, you will be provided with regular progress reports until the item is located.

In the unlikely event that your item cannot be located, you are then entitled to submit a claim for the cost price of the goods provided that notification has been received within 7 working days of delivery for a damage claim and 14 days of dispatch for a loss claim.


The Loss Claims Process

Once the courier has been informed that a consignment has not been delivered,  an investigation will be opened, followed by a national depot search. If the consignment has been found, it will be delivered regularly. If the consignment has not been found, and you have notified the courier within the valid time-frame, the query will be forwarded to the Claims Department. You must notify the courier of a potential loss claim for your parcel within 14 days of dispatch.


The Damage Claims Process

Once the courier has been informed that a consignment has been damaged, the goods will be collected from your customer and we will assess if the goods are salvageable or can be repaired. If the goods are salvageable / repairable, they will be returned to you for assessment. Once this has been completed, the query will be sent to the Claims Department. If the item is unable to be repaired, your claim automatically goes to the Claims Department. You must notify the courier of a potential damage claim within 7 days of the delivery of the item.

 

Claim Pay Out

Once the claim has been processed by the courier and they have confirmed it has been paid out, the payment will come through to GoSweetSpot directly (not your account initially). Please keep in mind that the courier will only pay out the cost (wholesale) of the item, not the retail price. 

This will usually be in our account by the end of the following month and once it has been received we will pass the payment on to you. Please note you will most likely not be reimbursed the original or replacement item's freight cost.
