Dealer Warranty Procedures

Call the ACS Industries, Inc. Warranty Coordinator at 330-678-2511 immediately upon learning of a potential warranty problem. Prior approval by ACS is required for all warranty work. Repairs undertaken without the express prior approval of the ACS Warranty Coordinator are done at your own cost and risk and with the possibility of invalidating any remaining warranty on the product(s).

In response to your phone call, the Warranty Coordinator will, in a timely manner:

Collect all pertinent information, including photos, if necessary

Evaluate the problem and promptly advise you verbally and in writing:

  • What repairs are necessary
  • The repair procedure
  • Parts required for repair
  • Time allowance for repairs

Or, in certain instances, the Warranty Coordinator may request the return of the product to the ACS factory for repairs. In the event where an ACS product or component must be returned, ACS will send/fax a Return Goods Authorization (RGA) to claimant. Please refer to the RGA number on all shipping documents and future correspondence.

Where applicable, the Warranty Coordinator will immediately provide required replacement parts, billing the claimant for the parts pending return and evaluation of the defective parts (also requiring an RGA). If the returned parts are deemed defective, a credit will be issued against the parts invoice. All defective parts must be returned to ACS freight prepaid.

Approved dealer labor expense will be reimbursed with a credit memo against future business with ACS.

GOALS OF THE ACS INDUSTRIES, INC. WARRANTY POLICY

1. ASSURE MINIMUM CUSTOMER DOWNTIME by resolving the problem correctly and quickly.

2. ASSURE END USER CONFIDENCE while maintaining an equitable warranty expense for both your dealership and ACS

ACS will, at its option, repair or replace, FOB factory, any standard or heavy-duty product that in its judgment is defective.

Where a service part has failed it shall be the policy of ACS to send a replacement part and an invoice for that part. Upon prepaid return of the failed part to ACS, a credit will be issued to the dealer if, after examination by ACS, the part in question is judged defective.

ACS will make allowances for work performed on products deemed defective after examination of the defective product either by having the attachment returned to the ACS factory, freight prepaid, or by photographic evidence clearly showing the problem area and/or details of failure. Written approval is required from ACS PRIOR to the performance of all warranty work, in order for a warranty claim to be honored.

  3. Component parts not manufactured by ACS, including but not limited to all wear parts, fork tines and cylinders will carry the warranty extended by the supplier; ACS responsibility for these items will equal the warranty offered by the supplier.
  4. Any equipment that has been repaired or altered in any manner without the express written approval of ACS will void all warranty.
  5.  Once a product is determined to be defective and it has been determined it can be field repaired, ACS will provide parts (as necessary), a written repair procedure and will authorize maximum time allotted to accomplish the repair via a Warranty Claim and Authorization Form.
