Claims/Packaging Policy
  • Holiday Bright Lights products are carefully inspected prior to packaging and are packed properly for shipment. We can not assume responsibility for damage occurred in transit. If you do not inspect the cartons upon arrival for possible concealed damage, you risk forfeiture of a freight claim. All freight claims for damages or breakage, whether obvious or concealed, must be reported to HBL within 24 hours of receipt.

  • If a product is damaged in shipment to you, please note any obvious damage or shortage when you sign for receipt of the shipment. Any shortage and/or damages should be noted on the freight bill prior to the delivery driver leaving. Counting, inspecting and signing for the number and condition of the cartons received on the freight bill are required by HBL before accepting a shortage or damage claim and request for replacement. If you do not inspect the cartons for damages or count for possible box shortages and you do not write any discrepancies on the freight bill, you risk forfeiture of a freight claim. Damaged goods and original packaging must be kept available for inspection and/or pickup by the freight carrier. It is advised to take photos of the damaged carton and product while the driver is still present. Please Note: That should a customer choose not to inspect, count the cartons and sign off on the freight bill with delivery exceptions, they are waiving their right to a shortage and/or damage claim with the freight carrier or with HBL.

  • We will replace or refund the purchase value of the damaged item(s) so long as the incident is properly documented and all claims are made with the carrier within the time allotted. If the same product is no longer available a refund will be issued for the purchase. HBL, Inc. reserves the right to refuse returns and not issue a refund or credit for products further damaged upon return shipment and will notify you of such damages at the time they are discovered.
