The carrier is responsible for a complete inspection of the products at the point of origin. Any damage must be noted on the BOL, CMR, DDT. The signed BOL is confirmation by the carrier that they have accepted responsibility for delivering the products in the condition in which they were received. Inspection of the boxed or crated products are limited to the exterior of the packages. Exceptions must be noted and the packages opened at once if the condition of the cartons or crates appear compromised.

Your refund credit will be issued after the item has been received and inspected. The cost of the return shipping will be deducted from the credit amount if you used our labels. In other words, you are responsible for the return shipping cost of any item you return.
If an order has already been shipped and is being refused by the client, the client is responsible for the cost of returning the product as well as any restocking fees. If the product cannot be returned to the sender (for example: if the return shipping cost exceeds the value of the merchandise), no refunds can be given in such a case. International Orders – orders returned from the other country will have shipping and any applicable taxes and customs duties deducted from the refund.
Please contact Customer Service and include your order number and a list of the item(s) you are returning.
Unfortunately, fragile items are sometimes damaged during shipping. Products with factory defects, missing parts or other problems originating prior to shipment - are handled differently than Damaged Goods (items that have been damaged by the carrier while in transit) which are discussed in the section below.
Should the Client or the person acting as Consignee on behalf of the Client find that products have visible defects, such as wrong number of packages, or lack of integrity of packaging, the Client or the Consignee shall immediately advise this by writing it in the shipment documents provided by the Carrier.
Moreover, we ask that you report the receipt of a damaged item to Customer Service within 48 hours of delivery and that you do not discard the damaged item and its packaging. If you fail to report damages within this time frame, we are not able to file a claim with the carrier; which means Viva Interiors cannot accept responsibility for the damages.
Once you notify us that your product was damaged, Viva Interiors will file a claim with the shipper. These claims typically take 8-10 business days to process. Please do not discard the damaged product or the packaging during this time. The shipper will typically be dispatched to pick up the item for inspection and processing. We ask that you assist us in this process by ensuring the item is available for pick-up at the scheduled date and time.
In most cases, we can order a replacement item at no cost to you as soon as the damaged item has been picked up. However, the claim is still considered outstanding and could result in a charge for the replacement item depending on the outcome of the claim. Replacements are subject to availability.
If you receive a product that has broken glass or a dented shade, we will provide replacement glass or shade at no additional charge as long as it is reported within 48 hours. If you wish to return an item that was received with broken glass or a dented shade and report it within 48 hours, we will provide a replacement for the glass or shade at no additional charge. If you wish to return a product that was received with broken glass or a dented shade, the standard return policy will apply.
Viva Interiors is not responsible for reimbursement of any labor costs or project delays that may occur due to the receipt of damaged goods. We always recommend that you wait to schedule installation of any items until after your fixture has arrived and been inspected.
Please contact Customer Service if you have any questions.
