Inspections should include removing plastic wrapping and inspecting for potentially hidden damage not visible through the plastic wrapping. Damage should be noted in writing on the driver’s bill of lading, photos should be taken of the driver’s paperwork, showing the notation of damage, and photos should be taken of the actual damage.
