Repair Journey



Repairs are collected and delivered to our workshop in Sheffield via our own vans or through our dedicated courier service


Initial Identification

Decontamination status is checked and verified. All devices and instruments are checked against customers paperwork for both type and identification marks, everything is logged and any discrepancies are noted

Administered onto System

Each individual item within a customers order is uploaded onto our system. Works orders are produced for each item and items are separated into type, ready for inspection by an engineer

Engineer Inspection and Pre-Quotation

All instruments and devices are inspected, tested and risk assessed for suitability for repair. Any non-repairable items are flagged. Repair quotations are sent to customers if applicable and await authorisation
