Manitowoc has a comprehensive Warranty Claim Process that ensures a prompt reply to address warranty issues as they arise.

  • The claim process begins with the end user requesting a warranty claim through a local Manitowoc Cranes dealer. The local dealer would then request a warranty claim number from Manitowoc and fill out a claims form fully identifying what the problem is as well as the parts affected and submit it to Manitowoc Warranty Department.
  • The warranty claim is received by Manitowoc and entered into the warranty system where it is reviewed to determine what action(s) are required. 
  • The claim may be processed for immediate payment.
  • Additional information may be requested to make a determination of the claims validity.
  • The claim may be declined.
  • Parts may be authorized for return for evaluation. Once parts are returned and evaluated, the claim may be paid or declined.
