Aluminum Boat Lift Warranty

Features - Specs

Midwest offers a 2/10 - year hoist protection warranty for both the Aluminum and Hydraulic Boat Hoists.

Your ShoreStation® Hoist Limited Warranties

During the terms of the Limited Warranties on your aluminum ShoreStation hoist, Midwest Industries, Inc. (hereafter referred to as "Midwest") covers the cost of all parts and labor needed to repair or replace any Midwest supplied item that proves defective in material, workmanship or factory preparation. These repairs or replacements (parts and labor) will be made by your dealer at no charge using new or remanufactured parts.

Your Legal Rights Under Midwest’s Limited Warranties

All of the Midwest Limited Warranties stated in this booklet are the only express written warranties made by Midwest applicable to the aluminum ShoreStation hoist. These Limited Warranties give you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. You may have some implied warranties, depending on the state in which your aluminum hoist is registered.

For example, you may have:

1. An "implied warranty of merchant-ability" (that your hoist is reasonably fit for the general purpose for which it was sold);
2. An "implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose," (that your hoist is suitable for your special purposes; if your special purposes were specifically disclosed to Midwest itself - not merely to the distributor or dealer - prior to purchase.)

These implied warranties are limited, to the extent allowed by law, to the time period covered by the written warranties set forth in this publication. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

This Warranty is extended only to the first buyer/owner of the hoist. This is defined as the first legal owner of a Midwest aluminum ShoreStation other than an authorized Distributor or Dealer who has bought the hoist from Midwest for resale to the public.

This warranty does not cover alteration of the aluminum ShoreStation hoist, or failure of hoist components caused by such alteration.

Midwest and its distributors/dealers reserve the right to make changes in aluminum ShoreStation hoists built and/or sold by them at any time without incurring any obligation to make the same or similar changes on hoists previously built and/or sold by them.

Your 2-Year Basic Limited Warranty

The 2-Year "Basic Warranty" covers every Midwest supplied part on your aluminum ShoreStation hoist and aluminum canopy support frame.

The "Basic Warranty" begins on your hoist’s Warranty Start Date. The Warranty Start Date is the earlier of (1) the date you take delivery of your new aluminum ShoreStation hoist, OR (2) the date the hoist was first put into service (for example, as a dealer "demo" or as a Midwest company hoist). The "Basic Warranty" lasts for 2 years (24 months) from this date.

The "Basic Warranty" covers the cost of all parts and labor needed to repair any item on your aluminum ShoreStation hoist that is defective in material, workmanship or factory preparation. You pay nothing for these repairs.
