To ensure that booked in work is progressed through the workshops in a timely manner we do not offer a telephone tech support service. To get help with one of our products you should first check the free down loads below for information or e-mail:
Our workshops work on the earliest systems through to modern day machines, parts are sent to us from the UK and around the World. We operate a system where each job is logged and the progress of your job is tracked through every workshop stage, this is regularly reviewed. Telephoning to chase progress when the workshops are busy is a sure way to delay the work - if our techs are on the phone - they are certinly not doing your repair!

Below is a selection of trouble shooting guides, useful background information and fitting guides that you may find helpful. The documents are free to download.
Our publications must be used in conjunction with the manufacturer's workshop manual and do not override any safety precautions the machine's manufacturer give. Some documents may go in to greater detail through our experience of in-depth strip down of components, we provide this data to make fault finding more accurate.
