Preventive Maintenance Overview
US Fitness Products Preventative Maintenance Program is designed to keep your equipment working safely and efficiently and to limit the frequency of repairs through regular maintenance, calibration, lubrication and inspection. It’s a misconception that since a piece of equipment is under a manufacturer’s warranty that a service agreement is not necessary.
The best analogy is your vehicle: Although the vehicle is under warranty, the dealer does not pay for oil changes, tire rotation, alignment, tune-ups, etc. All equipment has a manufacturer’s suggested periodic maintenance schedule which should be performed beginning with the day you receive your equipment. During each PM visit, a US Fitness trained and certified technician will inspect, clean, lubricate, adjust, perform diagnostics and troubleshoot potential problems with your equipment. Repairs considered to be minor will also be made. Service required between normal periodic maintenance calls will be billed at a rate of $75/hour with a trip charge of $45.
What Tasks Are Performed?
During each preventative maintenance visit, ALL equipment covered under the agreement will be inspected for safety, thoroughly cleaned in the interior as well as the exterior, lubricated and adjusted according to manufacturer’s specifications. Upon the completion of your visit we will complete a Fitness Equipment Preventative Maintenance Checklist that will indicate any need for repairs that were discovered to avoid any down time in your facility.
Frequency of Visits
The optimal frequency of visits is based on a number of factors including the age of the equipment, the type of equipment, the physical environment, and expected use. For an unsupervised, moderate-use facility, health club or community center, quarterly service is typically recommended.
