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.
