Warranty Claim Instructions
In our effort to serve our customers more efficiently and to expedite the warranty claim process, TIME Manufacturing Co. offers the following instructions for submitting a warranty claim.
1. All requests for warranty reimbursement of labor and/or parts must be submitted on a TIME Manufacturing Company Warranty Claim Form. Invoices for warranty reimbursement received without a completed warranty form will be returned, further delaying consideration for warranty reimbursement. A Warranty Claim can be submitted online through the VGPP, faxed to 1-877-329-7278, or by mail.
2. A Warranty Claim Form must be completed and returned to TIME within ninety (90) days of the work performed. Any parts, relative to the repairs, must accompany the claim form. Should a claim form arrive without the affected parts, a notice will be issued. Pursuant to that notice, the parts must be received within fifteen days. Failure to follow this policy will result in the denial of the warranty claim requiring you to resubmit your claim and start the process over.
3. When requesting a Return Goods Authorization (RGA) number, the following six items must be provided.
a) Part number
b) Description of part
d) Reason for return (defect found)
e) Model and serial number of affected aerial
