Contracts

A Smart Way to Protect Your Equipment

You've invested in quality equipment that is vital to your business-and service contracts represent a smart way to protect your investment. A fixed annual fee provides comprehensive service support on your equipment and creates many strong advantages in your business.

" I don't like surprises with my equipment...we have enough surprises in this business. Reliability is essential...if my equipment is running and everything's going smoothly, it's a good day."

Financial Advantage

Predictable service costs are a real plus-a fixed-line item in your budget. Greater peace of mind results when you're protected against potentially expensive equipment failures-we take that risk for you at Hobart. Protect yourself against potentially expensive equipment failures-lock in future service at current prices-and save money by processing fewer service invoices

Performance Advantage

Properly maintained equipment will last years longer and experience less downtime-leading to increased operator profits and enhanced productivity. Equipment tends to be much better maintained while under contract-minor repairs and basic preventive maintenance are performed before small problems have a chance to become large problems. Professional and timely equipment maintenance doesn't cost-it pays!

Service Advantage

And you get quality service from Hobart, widely regarded as the premier service organization in our industry.

No one in the industry is as close to their customers.

We're within 50 miles of 95% of our customers. We have more offices-nearly 200-and more service technicians-1,700-than any other equipment manufacturer in the industry. We stock our Hobart service vans with $58 million in parts, so traditionally 85% of the time we can solve your problem on the first call. When we don't have a part in the van, we can typically overnight it from our National Parts Distribution Center, which houses 35,000 separate parts. And we're available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All you have to do is call.
