72" Tool Box Inspection

Signs of freight damage

If you have any questions please contact us at 888.289.1952

Matching Locks

Not all toolbox combination sets will be shipped with the same number lock for each piece. We can provide you with matching locks after you set up your new tool box at no charge. All you need to do is note the lock number on the base cabinet and either email us at sales@strictlytoolboxes.com or call us at 888-289-1952 and let us know your order number and how many locks you need. We will then ship them out at no charge

THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IN PURCHASING A TOOLBOX IS PROPERLY INSPECTING YOUR SHIPMENT.

IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THIS PAGE THOROUGHLY FOR YOUR PROTECTION.

The freight carrier's terms and conditions clearly state that you are unable to inspect your shipment unless there are signs of damage to the exterior packaging. Signs of damage can be as simple as a tear in the shrink wrap or a broken pallet. You will always be able to find scuff or mark on the packaging somewhere that will allow you to inspect your shipment. If you have any issues with your freight driver not allowing inspection, call us immediately at 888-289-1952 and we will speak to him/her personally to arrange your inspection.

Please click here for a more detailed description and images of SIGNS OF DAMAGE.

In order to insure a positive customer experience properly inspecting your new toolbox becomes the most important part of your purchase. When you sign the bill of lading you are signing an agreement with the freight company that states that you or an authorized representative has thoroughly inspected the shipment. That you are receiving it without damage and are waiving any rights to file a freight claim.

Schedule a delivery appointment with your freight carrier.

Step 1. Schedule a delivery appointment with your freight carrier.

Once your toolbox is in transit and traceable on your respective freight carriers website you will be able to call your local terminal and schedule a delivery appointment.

Once you call your freight carrier and tell them your tracking number they will give you a date and time for when they can make your delivery.

All residential deliveries will require a delivery appointment.

Commercial deliveries do not require a delivery appointment but it is HIGHLY RECCOMENDED that you do so to ensure your shipment will receive a proper inspection. 80-90% of all damaged freight that is signed for is done by a co worker that was available and unaware of our freight inspection process while the proper consignee was away.

Be prepared to receive your shipment.

Step 2. Be prepared to receive your shipment.

Freight carrier drivers typically have 7-15 min to make a delivery. To make the inspection process go as smoothly as possible, please have the tools listed below available as soon as your toolbox reaches the pavement.

  • PRY BAR or HAMMER
  • TIN SNIPS
  • BOX CUTTER
  • WORK GLOVES
  • CAMERA
  • CELL PHONE - In case of damage please call us immediately at 888-289-1952

Note: The images for Step 2 and Step 3 show how a tool box looks when it leaves our warehouse.

Visually inspect the outer packaging for damage.

Step 3. Visually inspect the outer packaging for damage.

Please make note of any damage to the cardboard packaging before removing. If you notice severe damage on the outer packaging such as:

  • THE BOX IS CAVING IN
  • HOLES CREATED BY A FORKLIFT
  • ANY EXPOSED METAL

If you see any damage at this point STOP - NOTE THE DAMAGE ON THE BILL OF LADING and CONTINUE YOUR INSPECTION

***If possible write on the bill of lading yourself. If the driver insists on being the one to write on the bill of lading initial his notes showing that you agree with them. If you do not agree with the drivers notes do not sign the bill of lading.***

Note: The images for Step 2 and step 3 show how a tool box looks when it leaves our warehouse.

Bend Metal Hinges.

Step 4. Bend Metal Hinges.

Remove the top of the plywood crate.

Step 5. Remove the top of the plywood crate.

Once all of the hinges on the top of the crate have been bent you can begin removing the top portion of the crate. Be sure you are wearing your WORK GLOVES before removal since the steel edging may be sharp.

If you see any damage at this point STOP - NOTE THE DAMAGE ON THE BILL OF LADING and CONTINUE YOUR INSPECTION

***If possible write on the bill of lading yourself. If the driver insists on being the one to write on the bill of lading initial his notes showing that you agree with them. If you do not agree with the drivers notes do not sign the bill of lading.***

Remove the cardboard box from your toolbox.

Step 7. Remove the cardboard box from your toolbox.

At this point the cardboard packaging protecting your toolbox can simply be lifted off of the box. Once removed please set the cardboard box off to the side.

***If possible write on the bill of lading yourself. If the driver insists on being the one to write on the bill of lading initial his notes showing that you agree with them. If you do not agree with the drivers notes do not sign the bill of lading.***

Remove plastic lining.

Step 8. Remove plastic lining.

Although the lining is a thin clear plastic it is extremely important that it is completely removed before accepting your shipment. The plastic bag and shrink wrap can easily hide dents and dings that can occur during shipping. Once removed inspect your toolbox on each side thoroughly for any dents or scratches.

If you see any damage at this point STOP - REFUSE THE DELIVERY and CALL US IMMEDIATELY at 888.289.1952

***If possible write on the bill of lading yourself. If the driver insists on being the one to write on the bill of lading initial his notes showing that you agree with them. If you do not agree with the drivers notes do not sign the bill of lading.***

Signing for your shipment

Step 9. Signing for your shipment

When you sign the bill of lading you are signing an agreement with the freight company that states that you or an authorized representative has thoroughly inspected the shipment. That you are receiving it without damage and are waiving any rights to file a freight claim.

All products that arrive via common carrier freight must be inspected prior to signing for the product. If your product does arrive with damage YOU MUST REFUSE DELIVERY and note the damage on the bill of lading. THIS IS NECESSARY FOR YOUR PROTECTION although the responsibility is with the carrier, please notify and contact StrictlyToolBoxes.com immediately so that we may be of some assistance.

Awesome box! Look no further

This is my first REAL box I've bought and I am very pleased with my purchase. I looked at other boxes for months before I made my big purchase. Here were some deciding factors for me: (1) Price VS storage area, I looked at other boxes that were in the same price range and with the Tool Vault I am getting at least 4 more drawers. (2) Shipping was included in the price. Other boxes I looked at (because I wanted a blue box) would charge a ridiculous shipping price because they did not stock that color. (3) SIX CASTERS!! If you want your box to hold up over time you need STABILIZATION!!! (4) 100lbs per drawer!! (5) Want matching keys for both boxes?? No problem, Strictlytoolboxes will send you matching key FREE OF CHARGE!! (6) The drawers will open with the lid down and come with drawer liners. The only thing would have liked to have on this box is locking drawers instead of detents but the drawers shut good.

This box is well built and the finish looks great. I would highly recommend this box to anyone looking to upgrade. The shipping was super fast!! Ordered it on a Sunday night, was shipped on Monday and I received it on Tuesday!! Don't think you can do any better than that! I am highly recommending not only this box to everyone looking for a new box, but also STRICTLYTOOLBOXES.COM!! I will definitely refer you guys to everyone I know.

Thanks Again, Mike ...(Posted on 6/11/2013)
