by MM&D Online Staff

MARENGO, Illimois—UniCarriers Americas Corporation has upgraded its standard limited warranty to covers two years and unlimited hours on all Class I, IV and V forklifts ordered on or after November 1, 2014.

Previously, UniCarriers Americas’ basic limited warranty covered one year or 2,000 hours and its powertrain warranty covered two years or 4,000 hours.

“We understand that our customers need to keep their businesses up and running. Our forklifts are engineered, designed and manufactured to withstand the harshest conditions, the toughest jobs and the longest hours in order to keep them delivering outstanding performance for years,” said Anthony Salgado, president, UniCarriers Americas. “We know that we build the best forklift in the industry, now we are letting the world know it by backing up our equipment with the best warranty in the business.”

There are no SIC code limitations for the new warranty. The new standard warranty is also transferrable after one year, with approval based on oil analysis and review of service records.

Warranty claims will continue to be handled using the same process as in the past. The new standard warranty will have the same exclusions and limitations for wear parts, normal service and parts that are warranted by the original manufacturer.

UniCarriers Americas Corporation was formed in 2013, when Nissan Forklift Corporation, North America joined forces with TCM America. UniCarriers Americas Corporation is a division of UniCarriers Corporation headquartered in Tokyo. The merger positioned UniCarriers Americas as the fifth largest material handling equipment manufacturer in the Americas market.
