Inspection Reports Pickup and delivery reports help determine what damage is pre- existing and what occurred during transport. They also help pinpoint when the damage occurred along the route and which carrier is responsible.
Reasons for Denial Paint chips and windshield chips or cracks from road debris are unavoidable on an open carrier. This type of damage is possible during normal, everyday driving. Damage is marked as pre-existing on origin inspection. Damage is not marked on delivery inspection and reported more than 24 hours after delivery. Damage is mechanical in nature and cannot be determined to be transit related by a mechanic or technician. Damage is to the undercarriage or interior of a vehicle, which is not inspected by the drivers. Pre-existing damage (windshield chip) made larger by transport.
Things to Remember Transferees should perform detailed inspections with the driver at pick up and delivery, and make a note of any exceptions. Claims for new damages not noted on delivery paperwork must be reported within 24 hours of delivery.
