Spares Policy

Our support provides spare-up for each individual contract so our engineers always arrive on site with the spares required. They only carry original equipment vendor parts that are fully supported and recognised by the OEM. Each component is tested before being placed in to a spares location, and where possible before they are taken to the customer site by the engineer.

Spares Testing

All spares that our support provider purchases are fully ‘soak’ tested prior to being stored at one of our spares locations to ensure that they minimise any DOA. Also where possible all spares are tested prior to leaving a spares location for a customer’s site.

Spares Locations

Our support provider has a number of strategic spares depots across the UK & Ireland and Europe. The selection of where spares are held for each contract is calculated on the location of maintained sites and the specific time frame of the SLA.
