Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
What does your contract with them state? Is there a limitation of liability or an arbitration clause in the contract? What is the value of the lost items?
What is your specific question for us about this.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I have a copy of the signed agreement but I did not find out about the missing items until I was specifically looking for each item a few days later.
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 8 months ago.
Thank you for your reply.
I understand, but whether you can sue or whether you have to file for arbitration and what your rights are would be stated in the contract, so what does it say about lost or damaged items?
