Knapheide Truck Equipment Company stands behind the quality and condition of all merchandise sold. All products are covered by Original Equipment Manufacturer's warranty. The Customer Service team of Knapheide Truck Equipment Company is available to assist with manufacturer's warranty service, exchange and repair if any item proves defective.

Defective Returns

If your merchandise arrives malfunctioning or appears to be defective, our Knapheide Truck Equipment Company Customer Service team will make every effort to assist you in obtaining technical support and warranty service from the manufacturer. In many instances, manufacturer representatives can diagnose and resolve product concerns via email or over the telephone.

If you decide to return the part, a request for a Return Authorization (RA) number for defective returns must be received within 10 days from the date of original shipment. All service requests for defective products are governed by the terms of the manufacturer's warranty policies.

A product must be deemed "defective" by our Service Department prior to RA issuance. Once an item has been established as defective, please provide your original order number when submitting the RA Request Form.

Following return and inspection, any product found to be non-defective is subject to a minimum restocking fee of twenty percent. Shipping and handling fees are not refundable.

Non-Defective Returns

Non-Defective Returns are subject to a minimum twenty percent restocking fee. Return must be submitted within 30 days of the time parts were received by customer.

All shipping & handling charges incurred by Knapheide Truck Equipment Company for the original sale of all products (including products shipped for free) will be charged to the customer.

Unauthorized Returns or Refused Shipments

Knapheide Truck Equipment Company cannot accept unauthorized returns or exchanges. Deliveries lacking a valid Return Authorization (RA) number will be refused.

Knapheide Truck Equipment Company will impose a minimum twenty percent restocking fee plus any applicable shipping and handling charges incurred by Knapheide Truck Equipment Company for shipments refused by the customer.

To avoid delays and additional charges on unwanted shipments, customers should accept delivery and then complete the RA Request Form. By following this procedure account credits can be expedited in accordance with company policy. Refused shipments complicate the process and could delay resolution for several weeks. Credit requests cannot be processed until the returned product is received and inspected by the Knapheide Truck Equipment Company Service Department.


Knapheide Truck Equipment Company cannot accept any product returns without first receiving a completed RA Number Request Form.

Returns Process
