A machinery warranty is a company’s written assurance on what you can expect on the service or part replacement when the machine fails to work, or the parts get broken. A good machinery supplier will offer warry on their products for a minimum of 12 months from the date of purchase.
After-sales service is highly important, and it should be on the top of the checklist before choosing your ideal machinery supplier. Your machinery supplier should be able to provide you with technicians whenever you are in need and not just on a day when they come on your route.

This will be a lot cheaper that paying the technician for each visit and will help you save a lot of money.
Hiring machines is the best decision when it comes to your short-term requirements. You don’t have to spend a lot of money when you have the option to rent.
