We look at your machine as if it were our own. If we can find ways to help save you money, we will suggest them to you. If we do not feel it is worth repairing, we will tell you so.
To provide faster turnaround time, we ask you to approve service and repair charges up to $200, excluding delivery and pickup. If the repair or service will exceed $200, we will provide an estimate. This allows us to offer faster, more efficient service and allows the technicians to take care of minor issues they might find as they work on your generator.
