Warranty Policy / Returns



General Policy:

UPI offers a NO HASSLE WARRANTY RETURN policy to all our customers.  Warranty claims can only be submitted through an authorized UPI Distributor. UPI warranty is not transferable and applies to the original installation and purchase only.  In no event shall UPI be liable for incidental or consequential damages, nor shall UPI be liable for any claims or damages arising out of or connected with the UPI warranty exceed the purchase price of the products. There are no warranties, expressed or implied (including any warranty of merchantability or fitness) that extend beyond this warranty.  The warranty does not apply to costs associated with the loss of use of the product, loss of time, inconvenience, commercial loss, incidental or consequential damages.  UPI reserves the right to alter the designs of products without assuming any obligation to modify previously manufactured products and will only replace warrantied products with redesigned products.

Warranty does not apply to merchandise that has been drilled, cut, welded, modified in any way or installed contrary to normal installation and usage.  In addition, UPI cannot be held liable for damages caused by road hazards, accidents, misuse, neglect, abuse or corrosive environments including acid washes and highway snow/ice chemicals which can cause discoloration and corrosion in aluminum, chrome, stainless steel and light products.  UPI reserves the right to credit returned merchandise at the initial purchase price or at the current selling price, which price ever is lower.

Aluminum / Chrome / Stainless Steel Products: 

All aluminum, chrome, and stainless steel products carry a limited 6 month warranty (from invoice date) against defects in material or workmanship.

Lighting Products: 


All incandescent lighting products carry a limited 12 month warranty (from invoice date) against defects in material or workmanship.  The limited 12 month warranty does not apply to several applications, such as, buses, construction equipment, and off road vehicles.


Please refer to the Master Lighting Product Catalog for more detail.
