Service Level Agreement Line Image

This agreement is intended to confirm the Strickland MFG Ltd after-sales commitment. Strickland MFG
are proud of both our products and the quality of service we offer, and are confident that our products
will work efficiently and effectively, provided they are used in conjunction with our recommendations
and guidelines for use & maintenance.
❖ In the case of the Strickland S-LOCK Hitch only, the period of warranty against frame defects
in design, materials or manufacture is
o For Hitches 5T and above: 36 months or 6000 hours (whichever occurs first).
o For Hitches 3T and below: 12 months or 2000 hours.
o This includes the main body, frame & moving jaw.
❖ 12 months warranty is offered on the Hydraulic ram. Hydraulic pipework must be signed off
at point of fitment. If it is confirmed at this time that there is no leaks or faults, no further
warranty will be offered on the pipes.
❖ Labour is covered for the first 12 months.
❖ At all times, we will endeavour to respond to you as quickly as possible. All initial requests can
be sent to our service department hotline (01386 860 349) or emailed to head of service
Russell Sweeney ( One of our engineers may
contact you directly if more specific notes are required. Be assured that this is in the best
interest of a prompt resolution.
❖ We will respond to your request for repair in one of the following ways;
o By locating and instructing one of our network of independent service agents.
Strickland MFG will establish the problem and allocate the appropriate service
engineer to come to site. We will inform you prior to them coming out when you
can expect them on site.
o By instructing an external agent, a suitably qualified hydraulic engineer, where we
can be reasonably satisfied that the problem relates to a hydraulic component such
as a solenoid.
o By sending an engineer from our facility in Tyrone. This response method will be
slower and therefore we shall only use this option where the problem is more
complex and beyond the scope of the UK based engineers.
o In the event that Strickland MFG Ltd is unable to attend the site to resolve the
situation within the agreed time span, it is agreed that you, The Customer, can
attend the site to rectify the issue at the rates agreed below. You must obtain an
order number from Strickland Direct Ltd prior to visiting the site. On completion of
the job, you will submit a full engineers report to Strickland MFG Ltd, confirming
the serial number of the Strickland Product repaired and providing detailed
breakdown of the work carried out, components used and any photographs
available. You are also to provide a point of contact that Strickland MFG Ltd can
liaise with. This is to ensure the speedy resolution of the situation.
