You need critical service support for your Waste Handling Equipment

maintenance | servicing | breakdown cover

Waste handling equipment is built to last; purpose designed for sustained heavy duty usage. However, to get the most out of your equipment it also needs to be maintained and serviced regularly to ensure it is operating as it was designed to do.

Regular maintenance and servicing can minimise costly breakdowns and lost down time, ensuring hydraulics, electrical and mechanical components are operating at optimal levels and functioning within the appropriate, safe, parameters. Of course, breakdowns can still happen, but with correctly maintain equipment you can reduce this possibility; add breakdown cover and you have trouble-free operations and a reduced risk of financial and operational impact on your business.

Ideally, you will require a maintenance and service provider for your waste handling equipment who has a broad depth of knowledge within the industry and can provide a support solution that encompasses all your equipment maintenance and service needs.

All works are scheduled within a designated month.

This agreement does not cover equipment breakdown calls between service visits and additional charges will be incurred for any parts, hydraulic oil and filters required.

All-Inclusive Maintenance Agreement

The All-Inclusive Maintenance Agreement combines routine maintenance and breakdown cover into one inclusive ‘trouble-free’ package.

It encompasses all UK breakdown call-outs Monday to Friday within normal business hours (8am to 5pm); Pakawaste undertakes to respond to all breakdown calls within 24 hours. In addition you will receive 2 designated preventative maintenance visits per annum carried out by our own fully trained engineers and covering all aspects of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, oil/grease and operational maintenance. 

This agreement also has the added benefit of including all machine component parts.

Additional charges will be incurred for consumables such as oil, filters and wear pads; the service also excludes misuse and abuse, operator error, fire and vandalism.
