Contract Fine Print

AmeriGlide stair lifts may be returned within five business days of receipt for a refund less the following: All returned stair lifts shall incur a 15% restocking fee calculated from the gross selling price to cover the cost of handling and initial preparation of the unit. All returned stair lifts will be charged the outbound freight expense incurred by the company to ship the unit, which is $199. Return shipping is the obligation of the customer. Please contact Customer Service at 800-922-3659 to obtain a Return Authorization form prior to shipping the unit back. The Return Authorization will provide exact instructions on the return process. Refused Shipment Policy: If a stair lift shipment is refused by the customer at the delivery address, the customer will be responsible for a minimum $700 fee to cover prep, handling, track, and freight charges.

Warranty Fine Print

All warranty claims must be reported to the dealer from whom the lift was purchased as they have responsibility for handling your warranty claim. The dealer is to contact the Service Department of AmeriGlide and provide the serial number of the lift along with a description of the events leading to the warranty claim. Dealers may charge for labor, service, travel, or other associated costs to make repairs, and such charges are not covered by this Limited Warranty. It is permissible to have any repairs or replacement work done as a result of any defects in material and workmanship by someone other than the Dealer under this Limited Warranty. However, the Limited Warranty does not cover any charges or expenses assessed by any such other person or company performing such repairs or replacement work. All parts used to replace defective materials must be genuine AmeriGlide parts to be covered by this Limited Warranty.
Each and every stairlift that Handicare manufactures is engineered to the highest quality standards and designed to provide years of reliable service. As a result, its straight stairlifts include a lifetime warranty on their motor and gearbox, and the curved stairlifts include a 5-year warranty. A new Handicare stairlift will come with a two-year warranty as standard (excluding batteries). Of course, the warranty and service can always be extended by taking out a service contract.
