How to Submit a Warranty Claim
Once you have logged in you will be taken to the Dealer Menu screen as shown in the
above picture. From here, click on the Warranty Claims menu option located on the lefthand
side of the screen. A warranty claim template form will appear. This form will be
the basis for all warranty claims filed online.
The claim form has many places for required information though it is possible to submit a
claim without entering the required data. Be careful NOT TO HIT YOUR ENTER
BUTTON until your finished filling out the claim form completely.
Begin filling out the claim form by choosing Bestway, Inc. as the manufacturer. It is possible that future claims will begin to populate with Bestway, Inc. however, it is a good idea to ensure the manufacturer is labeled correctly each and every time. Be sure the dealer information is correct for the submitting location. All remaining data fields are used to update the warranty claim’s unit information, failure, charges, etc. Please see required fields.
Though a claim can be submitted with out all relevant data, Bestway, Inc. requires the following fields to be filled out before a claim is processed. Claims missing the required data will be returned to the submitting dealer for completion. These claims will be in “PENDING” status when returned. Bestway, Inc. will add notes to the bottom of the returned claim asking for the specific missing data.
