Central Receiving

Departments are required to inspect all packages before signing the bottom line.

Why Inspect a Package?

  • Inspect for damages.
  • Be sure all packages have been received when signing for multiple packages
  • By signing you become liable for the items received, returns for damages after signing will be at the Clemson University department’s cost.

If a Package is Damaged:

  • Ask the delivery person to take note of the damages on their receiving forms. This will clear you from any additional costs.
  • If the delivery person refuses to write down the damages, do not accept the package and return the item to the sender.

    • Receiving department name
    • Clemson University contact person name and phone number

  • Arrange with Clemson University department personnel to direct unloading of items
  • Arrange with Clemson University moving crew if necessary
