Policies & Conditions of Sale
Restocking and Handling Charge
Only upon written consent from Anteo USA, Inc. may any liftgate or part be returned to the factory. If returned, subject to written permission and a Returned Goods Authorization number, the liftgate or part will be subject to a minimum 15% of invoice restocking and handling charge.
Claims for Damages or Shortages
All shipments from Anteo factory or regional warehouses are FOB and are the property of the customer once they leave Anteo USA, Inc.’s or the regional warehouse’s dock. As with all freight delivery, it is the receiver’s responsibility to note shortages and/or damages on their delivery freight bill. Consequently, all damage or shortage claims are the responsibility of the Distributor and are to be placed promptly by the Distributor with the freight carrier.
Anteo USA, Inc. reserves the right to make changes in manufacturing to comply with current or new engineering specification changes where applicable.
Paint - Shipping & Storage
Every Anteo liftgate has been treated with KTL hexacrylic electro-cataphorese painting process. No additional paint is required unless shipping or installation damage or outdoor storage exposure has deteriorated the Anteo paint. Anteo USA, Inc. will not be responsible for shipping or installation damage or outdoor storage exposure that has marred or otherwise deteriorated the Anteo paint.
Installation Compliance & Procedures
Before installing any liftgate, please observe the Vehicle Loading Limitations. These loading limitations are outlined in the Vehicle Owner’s Manual and the Safety Compliance Certification Label located on the driver’s door pillar. Liftgate installers are to treat vehicles as incomplete and are therefore responsible for vehicle compliance with all local, state, and federal regulations, including but not limited to all lighting Regulations (see FMVSS 108) and all rear-view visibility requirements (see FMVSS 111). Installers must also follow the procedures and specifications as detailed in Anteo installation instructions, including ensuring the proper placement of all warning decals.
Owner’s Manual & Operating Instructions
Liftgate installers are to take appropriate steps to ensure the customer/owner is aware that all warnings and instructions outlined in Anteo owner’s manuals must be followed when operating any Anteo product. Liftgate installers must also ensure that the Anteo owner’s manual is placed in the glove compartment of any installed vehicle and must also provide appropriate instructions to operators of said vehicles and Anteo liftgates.
Anteo liftgates are industrial products FOR MATERIAL HANDLING ONLY and are not to be used as a personnel or wheelchair lift. For safe handling and operating instructions, visit www.usa.anteo.com
