The contact information for the various manufacturers is listed in the warranty section. Send an e-mail if there is an e mail address indicated for the manufacturer who shipped your table tennis table ,and, call them to confirm receipt during their hours of operation which will almost be M-F. Always supply both the parties with the name and address of the person the product was delivered to and all reference number such as a bill of lading number, waybill number, etc. It is important to keep your receipt from the shipping company.
      If you call the freight company and talk to a person, make sure that you get the name of the person and ask them for a reference number of your report if one is available. You should also make sure that you do not rely only on phone calls.
      If the box has serious damage it is best to reject the shipment and notify the shipping manufacturer as well as us.

      Some game tables will have a warranty for residential use only. If your purchase is for a usage that is not residential, please inquire. Many tables that carry warranties for several years for residential use will have the warranty reduced to one year for any usage other than residential. Please inquire regarding this matter if you have any warranty questions regarding warranty length for non residential usage. Parts are acquired directly from the manufacturers.

      With most of our large game table deliveries, the table is taken off the end of the delivery truck. However, some deliveries are curbside so it is helpful to have a hand truck or a dolly available for delivery. The driver will need your help to unload the product from the truck. Due to liability conditions and the safety of the delivery person, drivers are unable to go inside or up or down stairs at the delivery location.
      Special delivery quotations can be made for customers who require inside delivery. Questions regarding table tennis table assembly, missing parts etc., are handled by representatives of that factory.

      Folding dimensions of a folding game table cannot be guaranteed. If a dimension is critical to make a purchasing decision, send an e-mail with a specific request. We will then ask the factory to confirm and certify the folding dimensions.

      Guaranteed Delivery
      Guaranteed delivery means that an actual freight routing estimate performed within the Freight carriers system indicates that a delivery will be made by the guaranteed date.

      Folding Tables
      Folding game tables have a folding mechanism that is flexible and often will not always allow the table halves to meet up perfectly even at the center of the table. The chassis flexibility, unevenness of the floor, and normal variation of the table top dimension, can all contribute to this variation.
