Service Cranes (Limited Warranty, 2 Year Parts and Labor)

Auto Crane will warranty to the consumer for a period of (2) years parts and labor from the date of purchase. Each new Auto Crane unit they sell will be free under normal use and service from defects in material and workmanship. Date of purchase will be honored as the date indicated on the Bill of Sale, which must accompany the Warranty Registration and be on file with Auto Crane. Absent a valid Warranty Registration and appropriate documentation, the original date of manufacture, as indicated by the serial number on the product, will be used to determine the effective date of the 2 year warranty.

The obligation of Auto Crane under this warranty is limited to the replacement or repair of parts that appear to the manufacturer after review and/or inspection to be defective and paid flat rate labor for replacing defective parts. This warranty does not obligate Auto Crane to bear the travel time charges in connection with the replacement or repair of defective parts. Responsibility for customer's claims arising from misapplication, abuse, misuse or alteration of equipment or parts lies with the distributor or user and no warranty obligation is assumed in these circumstances by Auto Crane.

Auto Crane will in no event be liable for any consequential damages or contingent liabilities arising out of the failure of any Auto Crane Product or parts to operate properly.

Auto Crane makes no warranty in respect to component accessories, it being subject to the warranties of their respective manufacturers.

If field service, at the request of the distributor, is rendered and fault is found not to be with Auto Crane's product, the distributor shall pay the time and expense of the field representative.

Claims for service labor or other expenses that have incurred by the buyer without approval or authorization or Auto Crane will not be accepted.

When applying for warranty, claims may be handled by contacting your nearest authorized Auto Crane Distributor. All claims are to be filed in writing on an Auto Crane Warranty Claim Form.
