Newbe with Warranty Questions

I've been smokin' on an old clay BGE for a couple of years now. At the same time, I have also been shopping around at the local BGE dealers for a new ceramic model. In two or three years, I have seen a couple of dealers disappear, so here are my questions:

1.) If I purchase a new BGE and the dealer subsequently goes belly up, is the warranty good at any other dealer?

2.) Does the warranty include shipping to the dealer, or is that my responsibility?

Thanks... Ron


  • Ron,

    You have some good questions there. The warranty issues usually would fall on the shoulders of the dealer you purchased from. However, with the economy in shambles and dealers coming and going, you can go anywhere for the warranty claims.

    Be sure to fill out the warranty card it comes with and mail it in ASAP. That is the list they use for claims.

    You are responsible for shipping costs. Sometimes shipping costs more than the part itself. If you find a cool dealer, like me, I can add it to an existing order and eliminate shipping for you. It all depends on where you buy from and the existing dealers in your area. Good luck!

    I bought an Egg at a Fest (New Eggland - 2009) - do not recall even receiving a warranty card. Do I have any coverage?
