Quality Compensation Guarantee

xChange guarantees quality compensation for container buyers on the xChange trading marketplace. Sellers must accurately state their container conditions on xChange based on the standard Container Conditions. We support and mediate when a container does not meet the agreed container condition after the drop-off is completed, ensuring fair resolutions for both buyers and sellers.

Claim Process for Gate-Buy Deals

  • General Rules for Gate-Buy Deals:
    • The buyer must report any quality issues within 5 days of receiving the units at their depot and provide relevant evidence:
      • Repair estimates
      • Clear photos showing every angle of the container where the damages can be identified.
      • Photos of the container's CSC plate
    • xChange will assess whether repair costs exceed $100 DPP for validation:
      • If repair costs are less than $100 DPP, the claim will be closed without compensation to the buyer.
      • If repair costs exceed $100 DPP, xChange will validate the compensation amount and transfer it directly to the buyer’s xChange Wallet, marking the claim as resolved.
