Please keep in mind, you must submit the claims form within two weeks of receiving the item, or the claim will be forfeited.

One of my requested items was not delivered, what should I do next?
If you believe a requested item was not delivered, we ask that you first check your account to determine if the item is still in storage. If you don’t see the item on your account, please notify us right away so we can launch an investigation. Please provide a detailed description of the item, as well as the date it was picked up by our team. After a thorough investigation, if the items will not be available for re-delivery in a reasonable amount of time, you are welcome to proceed with filing a claim.
To initiate this process, please log into your account and visit our Claims Submission Portal.
For a missing item, we require a receipt, or weblink to the item, as well as any additional photos or documents to be submitted for review within the Claims form. You must initiate a claim within fourteen (14) days of the intended delivery of the item(s) and provide any additional information requested by MakeSpace in a timely manner to facilitate the claims process.
The process generally takes about four weeks from the time we’ve collected all the information.

Once Your Claim Has Been Submitted
I have the “Basic” Protection Plan, will I only receive .60 cents/lb reimbursement for damaged or missing items?
Your claim will be evaluated and approved based on your Protection Plan. However, the Claims team will take many factors into consideration when reviewing your claim, and we highly encourage filing a complete claim for any affected items.
With any questions about filing a claim, see our article on Filing a Claim or contact Customer Support.
