Shipping damages/Lost items:Upon receipt of the received item, Customer is responsible for inspecting the item, along with all contents in shipment, to verify and validate items are free of damage and/or defect(s).
An RMA must be submitted within 14 days from the date of shipment if the item was lost or damaged during shipping. Once the RMA is submitted Champion will issue a call tag to return the item and when the radiator is received and shipping damage is verified Champion will submit a claim with the shipping carrier. Exchanges or refunds will be processed after an RMA is submitted and shipping damage or lost item is verified. If upon inspection shipping damage cannot be verified the item(s) will be returned to the customer. An RMA submitted after 14 days from the date of shipment for shipping damages or lost item will not be approved and the distributor or end user assumes full responsibility.
