Preventative Maintenance Contracts

To facilitate the longevity of all Types of Shredding Machines we recommend that they are placed under a suitable Maintenance Agreement which ongoing saves Time, Money and Downtime on unnecessary Machine Breakdowns. A number of real advantages in having Machines covered under a Preventative Contract include:
  1. The machine will LAST MUCH LONGER and won't need REPLACING with a new model, which can be very expensive.
  2. You rarely have to pay for any additional BREAKDOWNS or SERVICE CALLOUTS as the engineer will adjust Belts, Grease Gears, Lubricate Parts, check Sensors etc. - anything that may require attention
  3. If still within the Manufacturers Guarantee Period you will NOT NEGATE YOUR WARRANTY (excluding misuse or general wear and tear)
  4. We can pre-empt any expensive Part requiring REPLACEMENT and take suitable preventative action
  5. The machine and surrounding area will be fully CLEANED and VACUUMED
  6. also very importantly with a Shredder - we check to make sure all of the SAFETY GUARDS, TRIP SWITCHES and SENSORS are working properly so that you do not contravene your HEALTH & SAFETY requirements. (We really do not want anyone shredding any fingers!!)
Maintenance: We will provide on-site Preventative Maintenance Services to include a pre-arranged number of visits that include Inspecting and maintaining your Shredders to ensure they are operating at an optimum level. The minimum level of Preventative Maintenance shall be accomplished in accordance with the Manufacturer's guidelines. Fully Trained, Experience Engineers shall provide all supervision, tools, materials, labour, facilities, equipment, incidentals and transportation, to perform the required maintenance. Parts and incidentals shall be chargeable*
Maintenance tasks include, but are not limited to:
  • Cleaning the cutter chambers and removing all compacted shredded material.
  • Clean the motor and electrical system to eliminate the possibility of dust contaminating the electrical relays, circuit boards, or switches.
  • All gears and chains are cleaned and re-greased to eliminate binding, rust, or dragging on the drive system.
  • Cabinet doors are inspected, and hinges repaired, adjusted, or replaced where required so the cabinet opens and closes without excess wear, and so that door open and close switches contact correctly.
  • Checking of all safety interlocks, trip switches and sensors.
  • Thorough testing, cleaning of machine and vacuuming of surrounding area.
  • Advice as to the general condition of the machine, and the long term wear and condition of the shredder's cutters.
