Tool Inspection

Once we have received both the tool, we will arrange for our technicians to carry out a thorough inspection usually within seven working days depending on our current workload.

Inspection outcomes:

  • Repairable
  • Scrap
  • Returned un-repaired (disassembled)

We reserve the right to charge for inspection.  This charge can vary depending upon the the tool but will be advised before we proceed with any work.  If you decide to proceed with the work then the inspection charge will be deducted from the total cost.

Repair Quotation

We provide you with a quotation along with a quote in some instances for a comparable price on a new unit.  If you decide to go ahead with the repair, we will advise the timescale for the work to be carried out.  We hold a large amount of common parts in stock but inevitably we cannot carry all parts and there may be a lead time on some parts which we are able to advise before proceeding with any work.

If the tool is beyond economical repair, and you would like it returned (disassembled) then a carriage charge will apply.

Tool Repaired and Returned

Once we have received authorisation, the repair will be carried out. We cannot guarantee a timescale for the repair as parts may be required. Most parts are usually available within five working days. In exceptional circumstances we may request a further deposit before repairs are undertaken.

When the repair has been carried out, we can either arrange for a collection and full payment or delivery and full payment which may incur a carriage charge.
