WARRANTY
Extended Warranty Purchases After the Unit Sale
:
Updates:

Extended warranties can be added to units after the original sale.  This can be done within 24 months of the units warranty start date.  There is not an additional cost when ordered within the first 180 days.

Please be sure to periodically get the latest form from Info Central as we do continue to update the form to add units or warranties as needed.

https://iservice.thermoking.com/Warranty/Forms- look for the most recent form. Currently it is dated 2018-10.

The latest change allows you to more than 1 non-standard warranty in the bottom portion of the form. You can still do multiple warranties in the upper portion of the form or a combination of standard and non-standard. It is alright to mix warranties with different deductibles. The trick is to be sure to change your deductible if applicable to get the correct drop down menus to select from.

Reminders:

Please make sure to register the unit and confirm it has the correct dealership location and customer name assigned to it in Tavant.

Check your quantity total at the bottom of the unit serial list on the right hand side.  If your quantity is incorrect highlight several of the blank lines in both columns below your last serial.  Then right click and select clear contents. Then click into another area and give is a minute to update.
