C -WARRANTY:  All T T E’s Aluminium Tray Bodies and Trundle Tray storage drawers are guaranteed against failure, under normal working Conditions, for the life time of the vehicle, to the original owner.

This does not cover normal wear and tear of the product, accidental or malicious damage or incorrect fitment to vehicle by someone other than T T E.

Where practical, the purchaser should return to T T E’s factory once every 12 months for an overall check and to have all mounting points tightened.  If this is not possible, then it is the responsibility of the owner, to have his/her mechanic tighten all mounting points, when vehicle is being serviced.

All T T E’s Aluminium Tray Bodies are built and fitted according to the ADR National Vehicle Standards, Bulletin No.6.

Where the tray body meets and is in accordance with the standard, T T E cannot take any responsibility for any partial obstruction of the side rear view mirror visibility.  If the dealer or customer is of the opinion that the existing mirrors are insufficient, then it is their responsibility to organise and fit an alternative.

Where a cab roof protection bar is fitted to a tray, T T E disclaims all responsibility as to the possibility of the bar creating wind noise.  Where possible, we endeavour to warn customers prior to purchase, of this problem.  As the problem varies according to the vehicle shape, no universal solution has been found, though every endeavour has been made to reduce the likelihood of it occurring.

Warranty on tool and storage boxes is limited to whatever is given or implied by the original manufacturer.  No guarantee is given or implied on any box as to its ability to prevent theft of equipment stored therein.  The purchaser makes the decision based on his/her judgement as to which is best suited to the job on hand.
