Very Important Note: Inspection

  • When any winch or parts are delivered the goods must be inspected thoroughly.
  • If any damage is found on the packaging the goods must not be signed for and a note added 'Goods Damaged'.
  • If the packaging looked good but the goods have been damaged the goods must not be signed for and a note added 'Goods Damaged'.
  • If you are unsure about the condition of any of our products when they are delivered to your address you must not sign for them.
  • Once the goods are signed for they become your responsibility and you are unfortunately unlikely to reclaim any costs or compensation from the courier company or RED Winches.
