Why is Servicing, Calibration & Support so important?
A lot of leveling and surveying equipment available in stores and online, has not been tested, calibrated in New Zealand. This equipment has been delivered to the retailers, resellers and direct buyers, often with little or no service, parts and backup available. Many unsuspecting buyers are unaware of this.
Would you buy a brand new car without a WOF? Would you build a brand new house or commercial building with uncalibrated, out of level instruments?
The majority of New Zealand's major construction firms now only allow certifiied approved equipment to be used on their projects.
At Accurate Instruments, we calibrate and certify our Laser & Survey Instruments before you get them. On many of our products, we often perform QA and testing in line with local and international requirements.
Our Service Technicians provide the backup and support of our products, with calibration and repairs of our instruments when required. We have the computer software programs, specialised tooling, collimator jigs and baselines that allow us to test, calibrate the surveying equipment, all within a short time period.
How often is your equipment knocked around and you don’t know about it? Most instruments are fitted with a shockwatch, which is a good indicator of whether an instrument has been mistreated or dropped. Shockwatchs turn red with excessive impact. PARTS Our service departments carry a wide range of spare parts to service our product range. Other parts may be available to service your instrument.
If you purchased an instrument direct from an Accurate Instruments Trade Branch or sales team member, we can provide a loan unit if needed while your instrument is being serviced. This helps reduce the downtime to you, the operator as well as eliminating the costly exercise of hiring an instrument whilst your's is repaired.
