The warranty period is valid for (whichever comes the first), three (3) years or 10,000 cycles on parts and two (2) years or 6000 cycles on labour, counted three months after Unwin’s invoice date. If registering the product within 20 days from the installation date on the following lift’s power train parts are warranted for five (5) years or 15,000 cycles.

Replacement parts for Non-Warranty lifts carry a 90 days warranty with no labour ­reimbursement. Remote receivers carry a one-year warranty. Transmitters only carry a 90 day warranty.

Remuneration for work performed by an Unwin authorised technician shall be paid in accordance with the standard times listed in each product’s ”labour allowance” list. The labour rate is available upon request.

This warranty only provides for replacement of parts and work performed on the product, not the repair of ancillary equipment or the vehicle it is in. Travel expenses, towing charges, travel, lodging, or any other expense incurred due to the loss of use of the product are not covered by this warranty.

For the full warranty to apply, the product shall be installed correctly, shall not be modified and shall be serviced in accordance with the manual’s service schedule.

Unwin has the right to request additional paperwork and contact the retail customer to ensure repair satisfaction.

The following is required for warranty claims:

  • Model (e.g. VL998IB3452RP-2)
  • Serial number (e.g. 02-00123)
  • Spare part Numbers
  • Number of cycles (when cycle counter exists)
  • Repair Date
  • Customer/dealer name
  • Description of problem and resolution

Spare parts are shipped as standard freight. If express shipping is required, this will be billed accordingly. If, along with warranty parts, parts are sent that shall be paid for, all of the shipping costs will be invoiced to the customer.

Replaced parts may be requested to be returned. The part must therefore, be kept until the new part is delivered and/or the claim is resolved. Disputed claims must be advised within 30 days of posting.
