If the carrier will not perform the inspection, recipient should prepare an affidavit that recipient contacted them, noting the time and date that they failed to comply with recipient’s request. This along with the other papers in recipients possession will support the claim.

All claims against BEGA, including claims for shortages and errors, must be made in writing ten (10) days after delivery. Failure to make any such claim within ten (10) days shall constitute acceptance of the merchandise and waive any such shortages, errors, or other claims.
