Shipping Damage Policy

KAYAKS MUST BE INSPECTED FOR DAMAGE BEFORE ACCEPTING DELIVERY

It's important to inspect your kayak carefully and thoroughly upon delivery, so that you make sure you have everything you ordered, and that there were no damages in transit. If you have any problems, please call Riot Customer Service for help.

If the product is signed for without damage being reported or if the driver leaves the property without the damage being reported, Riot Kayaks will not be able to replace it. You will have to pay return freight charges which ranges from $250 - $400 or accept the kayak as is.


HOW DO I INSPECT A DELIVERED KAYAK?

Upon delivery, unwrap your kayak and thoroughly inspect for major damage. Major damage includes:

  • Holes
  • Dents
  • Cracks

If you find major damage:

  • Take pictures
  • Refuse the delivery and return damaged kayak to the driver
  • Have the carrier document in writing a detailed description of the damages before signing anything
  • Contact Riot customer service immediately

If you find minor damage, note the damage on the Bill of Lading, take pictures, accept the shipment and contact Riot customer service. Minor damage includes:

  • Scratches and knicks
  • Broken parts
  • Gouges
