Warranty only applies to the original purchaser.

Specific conditions of rectification may be negotiated between the Purchaser and Gibbs.

Where a third party is used to carry out warranty repairs the repairs must not be carried out prior to Gibbs being contacted, accessing the problem and approving action to be taken to rectify the failure. Any costs associated with this action will not be accepted unless an official company order is issued approving any action and will only cover the agreed dollar value of such action.

Where Product has been fitted in the Gibbs workshop the warranty covers reimbursement of parts and labour for the repaired Product only if such work is carried out with prior approval from Gibbs.

Gibbs will not pay, down time, freight, travel, towing, loss of profits or income, or any other expense other than the actual repair.
