68 JULY 2021 Storage In the event the purchaser request postponement of shipment beyond the scheduled shipping week after the goods have become work in process, or are ready to be shipped, Groupe Lacasse LLC can take arrangements to store the goods but at the purchaser’s risk and expense. Such transfer to storage shall be deemed delivery to purchaser for all purposes including invoicing and payment. Freight claims All FCA destination claims will be handled and filed by the Seller. In order to expedite any credit due, your help and assistance is required. Please adhere to the following guidelines. The merchandise is carefully packed and thoroughly inspected before leaving the warehouse. Responsibility for its safe delivery is assumed by the carrier upon acceptance of the shipment. Claims for loss or damage sustained in transit must therefore be made to Groupe Lacasse LLC as follows: A. Concealed loss or damage Concealed loss or damage means loss or damage that does not become apparent until the merchandise has been unpacked. The contents may be damaged in transit due to rough handling even though the carton may not show external damage. When damage is discovered upon unpacking, a written request must be made to Groupe Lacasse Customer Service within 15 days of the receiving date. No disposition will be taken until approved by the manufacturer. IMPORTANT: Groupe Lacasse’s policy in concealed damage is to replace the part or complete product if necessary at no charge to the dealer. However, it is the responsibility of the dealer to provide installation of the replaced part or complete product. Therefore, no labor fees will be accepted on concealed damages. B. Visible damage or shortage Any external evidence of damage or shortage must be noted on the freight bill or express receipts and signed by the carrier’s agent. Failure to adequately describe such external evidence of damage or shortage may result in refusing to honor a damage claim. When damage or shortage is discovered, a written request must be made to Groupe Lacasse Customer Service within 5 days of the receiving date. For claims, please contact Groupe Lacasse Customer Service by phone at 1-888-522-2773 or by fax at 1-888-248-1865 . Product A.

Installers can be contracted through one of the Seller’s dealer or affiliate on a separately negotiated basis. B. Service Service requests for design, installation, relocation, storage, trade-in, etc. are handled by the local authorized dealer. Contact the local authorized dealer for more details. C.
