Tailored repair options: What are they and why are they important?

Tailored repairs are developed based on your specific equipment needs and unique business circumstances. You can get a lot of life out of your genuine Cat parts as they are built to be rebuilt. By taking advantage of their reusability, you can maximize the life and value of your machines.

We will walk you through a series of questions to determine four factors which will help you decide on a repair option: length of ownership, utilization, affordability and turnaround time. From there you can make an informed decision based on what’s best for your business.

It’s important to repair components before they fail because repairing them after failure can cost anywhere from two to three times more. Click below to learn more about rebuilding vs replacing your equipment.
