Buyer shall indemnify and hold harmless, and upon request by BendPak, shall defend BendPak, its officers, directors, agents, or employees, against any and all claims liability, loss or damage, including attorney fees, arising out of any personal injury or death or damage to or loss or destruction of property arising out of, connected with or incidental to Buyer’s provision of Goods or Services, whether or not said claims or actions are founded upon the negligence or alleged negligence of BendPak; provided however, this indemnity shall not apply where such injury to death of persons or damage to or loss or destruction of property is caused by the sole negligence of BendPak.
4.4. BendPak does not make and expressly disclaims any warranty, guarantee, or promise, whether expressed or implied, including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, of the Services of the Contractor selected and hired by Buyer. BendPak shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, special or other consequential damages of whatever kind (including without limitation, injury, death, loss of profits, anticipated savings or earnings, other revenues, data, goodwill or contracts), resulting from Services by Contractor hired by Buyer.

Either party may change its address for notice by giving written notice to the other party of the change.
7.1. These terms and conditions set forth the entire understanding and Agreement of the parties in respect of the subject matter hereof. No provisions shall be waived, changed, terminated, or rescinded, except by a writing signed by the party to be charged by any such waiver, change, termination or rescission. No waiver of any breach of any provision of this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of any similar or dissimilar provision prior to subsequent breach or shall constitute an amendment or modification of this Agreement.
7.2. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be unenforceable or inapplicable, such holding shall not affect the enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement.
7.3. No contract for the purchase of Goods from BendPak or the performance of Services by BendPak may be assigned by Buyer without the prior written consent of BendPak. The provisions of this Agreement otherwise shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns.

No issues here but I went through a reseller. I dont remember an agreement. Not much magic to these things, but I understand wanting to go by the book.

Bend-pac insulating them selves from 3rd party installers. Changes nothing about the product and the warranty between you and them.

Mohawk insulating themselves from homeowners.

Lift makers hate homeowners. I don't blame them ether. 99% or more of lifting failures are user and use related not device failures. Sell them one at a time and answer 2193 questions and have to ship them one by one or 30+ per truck load at a time and done.

The truth is for normal home owner use any 2 post lift regardless of brand will be more than enough.

Proper use is the key.

I purchased a bend-pac way back when. Unpacked it read the directions and installed it. Used it for many years then took it apart, moved it and installed it again. Got a little truck parked on it right now. No wavers no issues lots of use.

The mountains are calling and I must go.

You Matter.

If you want I can give you the BendPak POC I used to buy something through a garage journal group buy (bridge jacks for my 4-post) and you may have better luck with him as he's higher up the chain.

i didn't deal with bendbak at all. just went straight to SGS. i told him what i wanted, he ordered them and had them shipped to him. brought them over on his rollback truck and had the install done in a day. could not have been easier!

End result:

Champion Lift ordered on Dec 20 from Chesapeake Petroleum. Delivered and installed today (Feb 28). So far, happy with the installers and the lift. Not happy with the salesguy that called me after the lift was 90% installed and wanted to add extra labor charges to a contract that was signed in December. No, I didn't pay the extra charges but I don't like having to argue.

And a special thanks to Charlie/Intersport for help getting the lift from the flatbed into the barn which neither I nor the installers could have done due to a wicked driveway to the lower part of the barn.
