Installation Labor Warranty
Each installation performed by an InstallerNet representative comes with a nationwide limited lifetime labor warranty for as long as you own your vehicle, residence, or business depending on what type of installation of equipment was performed. If at any time, the MANUFACTURER’s installed product becomes inoperable due to a faulty installation, the installer will correct the problem at no charge. Please note that any residential installation performed before January 2017 and any business/commercial installation performed before May 2023, held a 3-year installation warranty.
Defective Product – Removal and Replacement Warranty
In the event that MANUFACTURER’s Product does not work properly at the time of installation for a vehicle installation, an InstallerNet member installer will remove the defective unit and reinstall a replacement unit at no additional charge. In the event that MANUFACTURER’s Product does not work properly at the time of installation for a residential or business installation, an InstallerNet member installer will remove the defective unit and reinstall a replacement unit at no additional charge if replacement unit is available during initial appointment; if replacement unit is not available at the same time as initial appointment, customer is responsible for contacting manufacturer to perform an RMA, and a return fee will apply for installer to return to the site. If the MANUFACTURER’s Product becomes defective sometime after the initial installation, and it is determined that the malfunction is not caused by the installation, then the installer will replace the defective unit and the customer will be responsible for an R&R (removal and reinstallation) charge which will not exceed 50% of the original installation charge. These installation labor warranties apply regardless of whether the MANUFACTURER’s Product is in or out of the product warranty period. A travel fee may apply for residential/business installations.
At MANUFACTURER’s request (or MANUFACTURER’s customer request) an InstallerNet member will troubleshoot installation (where product/install issues are suspected). If, in troubleshooting, it is determined that InstallerNet’s Installation Labor or Removal and Replacement Warranties do not apply, an hourly rate will apply. InstallerNet Members may be required to contact MANUFACTURER’s Technical Support to confirm defective or compliant operation of products. For all warranty work the customer is responsible for acquiring the replacement product, and the costs related to doing so, subject to product warranty terms and conditions, if applicable.
NOTE: Check with your product manufacturer’s warranty – many times the warranty will also be extended when you use InstallerNet’s installation service or an InstallCard.
NOTE: Installation warranty follows original InstallerNet network installer. We must provide an opportunity for the installer to warranty their work.
