    Post Are these sentences correct?

    As you requested, we did not open any packages. We only checked for external damages, and we found that some boxes were received in external damaged condition and upon inspection, nothing was found damaged in those packages. Except that /Apart from that, we will not be held responsible for any concealed / hidden damage.

(This sentence is too long. See re-write below.) Except that /Apart from that, we will not be held responsible for any concealed / hidden damage. (Either word is fine.)

    Damage = uncountable noun, so express it only in singular.

    Here it is rewritten:

    As you requested, we did not open any packages. We only checked for external damage. We found that some boxes were received with some external damage. Upon further inspection, nothing was found damaged in those packages. Apart from that, we will not be held responsible for any concealed / hidden damage. (Either word is fine.)
