Scheduled Maintenance

Scheduled or Preventative Maintenance is a requirement for all machines to keep them operating at their peak level of performance. All machines require a daily inspection and topping up of fluids prior to start-up, as outlined in your machine’s operator and maintenance manual.

Depending on the make and model of machine, the intervals of service vary, and are clearly outlined in the operator and maintenance manual. Typically, the intervals are managed by hours recorded on the machine’s service meter, and the frequency of the intervals are every 250 or 500 hours, depending on the job site conditions and type of machine work.

While many customers prefer to do their own Preventative Maintenance, Strongco can provide the recommended parts and fluids you require to keep your machine operating at peak performance.

Strongco also offers Customer Service Agreements where we will perform these tasks for you.

Customer Service Agreements (CSA)

When it comes to Customer Service Agreements, there is no “one size fits all.” Strongco works with each individual customer to tailor the best CSA for all makes and models that we represent to meet your individual needs.

Why consider a CSA?

Strongco technicians are the experts when it comes to maintenance. Our factory-trained technicians inspect each machine for potential problems and recommend preventative actions, allowing you more time to manage the things that are important to your business.

Strongco will provide you with costs that are known and protected from the uncertainty of the day-to-day economy over the life of the Agreement.

We can also look after the tracking of the intervals and schedule the service accordingly. We’ll provide you with a complete history of all CSA work performed as proof of maintenance.

Strongco offers the following CSA options:

  • Preventative Maintenance CSA
  • Full Repair and Maintenance CSA

What does a CSA cost?

Each CSA is different, Strongco will construct the best program for your machine keeping your business needs in mind. Just ask any of our Customer Support Representatives (CSRs) for assistance and they will build a custom solution specific to your business needs and will provide the costs for your specific program. Even how you pay can be customized to your business needs, we can provide options such as monthly rates, hourly rates or pay per service level performed.

A Customer Service Agreement designed specifically for your machine is the best opportunity to maximize the machine uptime and production as well as to help lower the total cost of ownership.

Extended Warranties

Why purchase extended warranty coverage?

Simply stated, extended warranties provide peace-of-mind and total cost of ownership management without the surprises that can sometimes occur.

Extended coverage allows for protection of key machine components and removes the risk of an unplanned repair and expense.

Strongco offers extended warranty coverage for the majority of the equipment we represent today, either through the original equipment manufacturer’s own program or through preferred-partner providers.

Equipment Inspections

  • CARE Inspections
  • CASE 88 Point Inspection  
  • Machine function annual check up
