What if my order was damaged in shipment?

Most items that are shipped from Keating Machine, Inc. are in new and unused condition. Special care is taken to protect your items during shipment. Our boxes are amply sized to contain your items and enough packaging material to ensure they are well-protected.

If a package is delivered to you in damaged condition, you have the option of refusing delivery of a package with obvious damage. If you do receive a damaged package, please call Keating Machine, Inc. sales department immediately at (865) 269-4643. We will contact the carrier and file a damage claim. Keating Machine, Inc. will arrange for the carrier to pick up the damaged package. Do not install or use the item. Do save all boxes and packing material for inspection by the carrier. Once a damage claim is made and accepted with the carrier, a claim number is generated. At that time Keating Machine, Inc. will work on re-processing the order for the lost or damaged items.
