Every piece of Cat® equipment is designed and built to provide maximum productivity and operating economy throughout its working life. With the addition of a Warren CAT Customer Value Agreement (CVA), you can minimize the downtime, improve the performance and extend the life of your heavy equipment, while in turn, reduce the burden of equipment maintenance and keep production costs low to increase profitability.
Have questions about your Customer Value Agreement options? Give us a call at 866-292-7736 or contact us online to speak with a Warren CAT service professional.
What Is a Customer Value Agreement
A CVA is a hassle-free ownership and maintenance agreement between you and Warren CAT that includes a custom-tailored package of services for your equipment ranging from simple Preventative Maintenance Kits to more comprehensive, sophisticated Total Cost Performance Guarantees, all designed to fit your business and help lower your cost per unit of production.
And you’ll never be locked into a long-term agreement. You can modify or cancel your CVA at any time simply by giving us a 30-day notice.
Our professionally trained and certified technicians assist you by maintaining your equipment, helping drive down your operating costs. These services can include inspections, oil change/oil analysis, remote monitoring, proactive repair work, guaranteed service intervals or “beyond the engine” maintenance/repair.
By preventing unscheduled maintenance and unexpected costs caused by premature component failure or unplanned repairs, CVAs are focused on maximizing uptime, reducing ownership costs and increasing productivity.
There’s a lot that goes into owning equipment, so there’s a lot that comes with CVAs. Check out this video to get an overview about what they offer and how they can help keep your machine easy to own and ready to work.
Customer Benefits of a CVA
As a full-scale solutions provider, Warren CAT focuses on offering value-added services that save your business time and money. A Cat CVA covers more than just regular maintenance and repairs.
Agreement Flexibility – adapt to level of support to meet your requirements with customizable, scalable plans
Better Budget Control – flexible payment options including prepaid (paid-in-full or financed*), flat rate (total price / total number of services), monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually or actual production hours
All Maintenance Parts and Tools – Cat maintenance parts/tools for routine services, including discounted filters
Accurate, Professional Testing – Caterpillar® trained technicians with specialist knowledge, technology, and global backup to check your equipment
Early Warning – advanced diagnostics to identify problems before a major failure occurs and schedule repairs, resulting in increased time savings and efficiency
Plan Ahead With Greater Confidence – improved reliability enables tighter scheduling of maintenance intervals and fewer unplanned repairs
Increased Uptime – engines run longer and more efficiently, improving profitability
Better Resale Value – Improved maintenance record-keeping to better track owning and operating costs
Knowing beforehand that service will be needed allows you to schedule downtime and save money with before-failure repairs which often cost less than half of after-failure repairs.
Customers covered by a CVA also do not need to worry about disposing of used oil/fluids, used filters or analyzing oil samples (SOS). Warren CAT can perform all of that work for you and dispose of the used materials in an environmentally friendly way.
How Does a CVA Work?
A CVA is an individualized plan for all your equipment, regardless of age or application, with no pre-set requirements. It can cover one piece of equipment, systems, or entire fleets. While a CVA is an excellent tool for managing new Cat equipment right from the start, agreements can also be written after the sale to help you control costs and improve availability.
Our Warren CAT service professionals will walk you through flexible CVA options: PM management according to working hours, whether you do the maintenance or prefer dealer service, amount of EPP coverage and more. In every case, you get access to trained experts who know more about your Cat equipment than anyone else. If preventive maintenance is not getting priority attention, a CVA can ensure maintenance recommendations are followed to the letter.
What percentage of your resources are spent on the following?
Finding and training mechanics
Repair tools, equipment and diagnostic tooling
Environmental disposal fees
Shop building upkeep, taxes, insurance, utilities
Service and lube trucks
All of these factors impact your bottom line. A CVA can minimize these and other costs by placing a variety of service duties into the expert hands of Warren CAT service professionals to provide this maintenance in a timely, efficient, and cost-effective manner, saving you money and improving equipment availability, leaving you more time to concentrate on other important aspects of your business.
