One of our strapping tools has stopped working but we can't afford to keep going without it. How do we keep our end of line packaging and dispatches running smoothly?
Don't panic! Call our Specialist Tool Repair Team for advice straight away!

Strapping tool repair formsWe can talk through your strapping tool problems over the phone to troubleshoot and provide guidance on how to rectify the issue. If the tool is completely out of action, we will ask you to complete our quick Tool Repair Form and arrange delivery to our Engineering Team.

Once we receive the tool, we will assess the issues, provide you with an estimate for the total repair cost and repair the tool promptly. We have a variety of spare parts allowing us to quickly repair your tools and send them back to you within a matter of days.

Do you provide a replacement tool and strapping tool rentals?
Yes, we can provide you with a strapping tool when your own tools are out of action. Simply get in touch with our team to enquire into manual and automatic strapping tools to rent.
We also provide long-term tool rental agreements to some customers who wish to spread the costs, as it simply works out better for them.
The most cost-effective option for our customers, however, has proven to be purchasing a tool outright as part of their company's capital expense, i.e., pay less tax when you buy assets. We also offer servicing and maintenance programmes alongside our tool and machine purchases, so you can rest assured that we will be able to provide you with a back-up tool, whilst your current one is being repaired, to keep your business running as normal.

What happens at your Service Centre?
Our experienced engineers will analyse your strapping tool, assess the issue, repair the tool using the necessary parts and rigorously test the product to ensure it is back to optimal working order.
Our new Strap Testing Station, part of our new Packaging Innovation Centre, has been a fantastic way to test the performance of all of our strapping products in our mission to continually improve and provide the best strapping products in the UK. In addition to testing, our new Packaging Innovation Centre has already proven to be an engaging facility for our current customers and new contacts to explore packaging products and the most effective solutions for their businesses.

How much will it cost?
If you are one of our customers already, you may be on a tool rental plan, or have purchased a tool from us within a service contract. The cost will depend on the fault and service agreement.
If you are not a current customer, we will provide a repair estimate prior to the work being carried out and can put together a maintenance plan for all strapping tools and packaging machinery going forward.

Are strapping tools worth repairing or should I buy a new tool?
This really depends on the original price and age of the tool versus the price to repair. We will be very honest with you about pricing and any recommendations to upgrade to a new strapping tool. 
The cost to repair the tool may not be justifiable, compared to the price of a new hand tool. If you are looking to upgrade to the latest model or to a battery-operated strapping tool, we can provide advice and outline the costs, to help you make a decision.

We have helped many of our customers to improve end of line packaging performance & save on costs, by providing free on-site audits, determining the optimal solutions for their business and ultimately streamlining their packaging process. A key part of this success is the evaluating current packaging performance and looking at ways to improve on efficiency, reduce packaging waste & suggest better packaging products which will offer better performance, resulting in you using less and ultimately reducing costs.
