General questions (warranty, care and maintenance etc)


When will my awning be delivered?
• You will be contacted when your order arrives at the UPSFreight terminal to set up a convenient delivery appointment time. Please allow up to 2 weeks from the date of shipment for your awning to arrive (HI allow 3 weeks). If you have not heard from UPSFreight please contact them at 800-333-7400.

What is a freight delivery?
• Your awning is too large to ship via small package carriers and will ship with UPSFreight. Freight deliveries are curbside. The driver is not responsible for bringing the delivery into your home, uncrating, installing or removing packing materials.

I live in a gated community or a road restricted to trucks.
• Curbside delivery is subject to suitable access. Some circumstances may require an additional fee to the carrier. Be sure to discuss any restrictions when the local freight terminal contacts you to schedule the delivery appointment.

Do I need to be home to receive the delivery?
• Please have someone meet the delivery, sign for it, and take it from the curbside. If you are unable to do so, be sure to discuss and authorize an unattended delivery when the local freight terminal contacts you to schedule the delivery appointment.

How will my awning be packaged?
• 900XT/1000XT Awnings: Your awning will arrive in three packages. One Box will contain your awning support arms and hardware along with installation instructions. Your fabric and roller bar will be packaged in two separate tubes.

• VISTA/Motorized Awnings ship in one tube. If you ordered the remote control or an awning cover, those are included in the awning tube along with mounting hardware and installation instructions.

• The Freestanding OASIS will arrive in two packages: One box containing the support vertical legs and one tube containing the pre-assembled top (roller bar, fabric and arms).

What if my shipment appears to be damaged or is missing a package?
• It is your responsibility to check closely for any signs of damage or missing items before signing for the delivery. Keep in mind that the package may appear damaged but the contents may be unaffected. Mark any discrepancy or if a package is damaged on the driver’s delivery receipt with a written description of any visual damage. Please call us at 1-800-670-7071 to arrange for prompt replacement should you uncover any issues with your delivered items.

• Yes. Follow the Awning Tech Support link from Owner Services to preview the installation video and written instructions for your awning.

What if I need assistance during the installation process?
• Except for the Freestanding OASIS which does not require installation, all other awnings come with a DVD showing the installation process and a detailed installation manual.

What if I am not comfortable installing my awning by myself?
• Except for the Freestanding OASIS which does not require installation (only a few simple assembly steps), all other awnings come with a DVD showing the installation process and a detailed installation manual.
