11. Declared Value
If the grader determines, in its sole discretion and at any point in the process, that the submitted Declared Value has been understated relative to the market value of the item, the grader reserves the right to decline your stated Declared Value. If the grader declines the Declared Value of an item, the greader may require you to pay for the accurate Service Level as a condition of them completing the authentication and grading process as to the subject item. If you refuse, or are unable, to pay the grading company for the accurate Service Level, then the grader will return the item to you unprocessed at your cost, and you will be charged for the Service Level at which you submitted the item. The graders determination that you have understated the Declared Value will affect only the Service Level charge, it will not change the Declared Value for purposes of establishing the maximum item value for claim or shipping insurance purposes.
You acknowledge and agree that grading and authentication of items requires the individual judgment and professional opinion, which is subjective in nature, and can change from time to time. Therefore, Slabd offers no warranty or representation and shall have no liability whatsoever for the grade or determination of authenticity assigned to your card by the grader.
Graders have the right to refuse customer requests for any reason, including: items being too fragile to handle or encapsulate, items being of suspicious authenticity, items being of a type they do not wish to grade or authenticate, or any other reason that may come up. In some case you will be required to pay the full grading fee if your item is not authentic or has been tampered with (coloured, trimmed, restored, cleaned).
Slabd reserves the right to adjust services fees accordingly. Grading companies can change their service fees with no notice and this will impact your service fee. Slabd endevours to charge you the most up-to-date fee prior to submission. However, due to world events and current demand this can change suddenly and you may be required to pay the difference in service fees if this occurs.
13. Damage & Returns
The customer acknowledges that, despite SLABD and the grading company’s
(PSA, BGS, SGC) best efforts to ensure product quality and packaging integrity, there may be instances where items are occasionally damaged during transit or handling.
In the event that a product is received by the customer in a damaged condition, the customer must notify SLABD upon reciept. Failure to report the damage within 5 days may result in the customer forfeiting any entitlement to repair.
The customer may be required to provide evidence of the damage, such as clear photographs or videos, to support their claim. This evidence will assist the grading company in assessing the extent of the damage and determining an appropriate resolution.
Upon receipt of the notification and supporting evidence, the grading company will evaluate the claim and, at its discretion, may offer a repair and return.
SLABD reserves the right to request the return of the damaged item before proceeding with a resolution. The customer may be required to follow the grading company’s return procedure, which may include returning the item at the customer’s expense.
In cases where the customer is requested to return the damaged item, SLABD will provide clear instructions on the return process, including the address to which the item should be returned and any specific packaging or labeling requirements.
SLABD shall not be held liable for any further damage or loss that may occur during the return shipment of the damaged item. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the safe and secure packaging of the returned product(s) in accordance with SLABD’s instructions.
