Open transport damage

With his signature, the recipient not only confirms acceptance of the goods, but also that the shipping or transport packaging appears to be in good condition without any obvious defects. Therefore, you should definitely have the deliverer record a damage report immediately. Have all damage to the packaging and delivered items described in detail and have all missing items listed in detail. Photographs of the damaged items or shipments have proven useful as evidence.Otherwise claims for damages from transport damage are excluded
Concealed damage in transit
Hidden transport damage is present if the outer packaging is apparently undamaged, but the contents are damaged.
Check the goods immediately upon receipt. Hidden transport damage is present if it is only recognized after acceptance of the shipment. The recipient must report the damage to roomours within 48 hours of taking delivery of the goods by fax to
Our employee will then contact the recipient immediately to initiate further steps.
Defects discovered later, which are due to improper handling during transport, are no longer recognized and replaced by the insurance companies. The same applies if the outer and shipping packaging is missing.
Please refrain from accepting the shipment with the comment "under reserve"!
