How do I make a warranty claim?
Generally, warranties cover defects in materials and workmanship. Warranties do not cover damage resulting from normal wear and tear, accident, misuse, neglect, improper installation, fire, vandalism, act of God, or any form of abuse or modification. Labor and shipping (including items that need to be shipped back using LTL freight for a warranty) are not covered under any warranty. This is the responsibility of the customer.
Visit our Contact Us page (https://gatorcovers.com/contact/) and use the form on the right side of the page if you purchased directly through Gatorcovers.com.
Select “Question about an existing order” from the first drop down box and “I’d like to submit a warranty claim” from the second, then fill out the form as directed.
Once we determine if the item is still under warranty, we will ask you for a brief description of the defect. Digital photos of any damage or defects may be necessary for us to determine the best course of action.
If it is determined that a product should be returned, please pack your return in a sturdy shipping carton using indestructible packing tape.
