Grúas Sáez, S.L., as the “SELLER”, guarantees that the new crane purchased by the buyer is in perfect working order, and therefore free from any defect, both in materials and in manufacture.
The above mentioned WARRANTY covers exclusively the spare parts and parts against any manufacturing defect, as long as the use and maintenance of the crane are in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. All other expenses arising from the replacement of these parts or spare parts, such as the transportation thereof or labour, shall be borne by the buyer. The seller reserves the option of replacing or repairing the defective part.
The warranty period covered by the manufacturer will be the first of the following:
I. Twenty-four (24) months from the date of issue of the crane.
II. Twelve (12) months from the date of assembly of the crane.
III. Two thousand four hundred (2,400) hours of crane use.
Repairs are understood to be carried out at the manufacturer’s installations, and the buyer is responsible for the dismantling, packaging, loading, transport, customs, taxes, etc., caused by the sending of the defective material to the installations of the “SELLER”, however, the latter may, at its own choice, provide the buyer with the part for replacement of the damaged part under warranty, and this replacement of the damaged part must be carried out by personnel of Grúas Sáez, S.L. or personnel authorised by it.
In the latter case, the transport costs of both the part sent by the seller in replacement of the damaged one and the return part to be sent to the seller will be borne by the buyer. The parties hereby accept that the replaced parts are the sole and exclusive property of the seller, and the buyer is obliged to return the replaced part to the seller under warranty.
The repair or replacement of a defective part does not change the start date of the warranty period of the supplied products. The repaired or replaced products will have a warranty from the time of repair or replacement equal to the time remaining on the defective or replaced product until the stipulated time periods described above are met.
This warranty does not cover damage, malfunctions etc., resulting from:
- Normal wear and tear.
- Repairs, modifications or alterations to cranes carried out by personnel outside the Grúas Sáez, S.L. organisation, without authorisation from the latter.
- Improper use, replacement, repair, modification, conservation or alteration, or lack of maintenance in accordance with the maintenance instructions outlined by the manufacturer.
- Wrongful or negligent handling, abusive use, defective assembly, variation in the quality of the electrical supply, (voltage, frequency, etc.) modifications introduced without the approval of Grúas Sáez, S.L., installations made or modified later without following the technical instructions of the product and in general any cause not attributable to Grúas Sáez, S.L.
- Damages that occur due to any cause of force majeure.
In no case shall Grúas Sáez, S.L. respond to the buyer or third parties for direct, indirect or consequential losses or damages derived from or related to the object of this warranty, such as accidents to persons, damage to goods other than the object of this warranty, loss of profits, downtime, or any other. Any commitment or obligation on the part of the buyer resulting from the warranties existing between it and its customers which exceed the above and which have not been explicitly accepted by Grúas Sáez, S.L. in written form will be the exclusive responsibility of the buyer.
The liability of Grúas Sáez, S.L. with respect to cranes sold to the buyer shall be limited to that described in this document, and in no case shall this liability obligate Grúas Sáez, S.L. to pay an amount greater than the cost of the part or spare part, which is the object of this warranty.
