Placing A Service Call On Your Document Binder or Laminating Machine
Office devices such as Document Binding Machines and Document Laminating Machines can be prone to malfunction due to user error or failure of the device itself. Failure of the device can also be caused purely from lack of preventative maintenance.
Performing some research is worthwhile prior to placing a service call on binding machines & laminators as breakdowns can sometimes be rectified over the phone on our product support, 1800 number.

In today’s throw, away society, you will only find a select number of suppliers that support what they supply. Generally, the more professional the office device, the greater chance there is for repairs to be carried out.
To help decide whether to place a service call, the main questions you could ask office machines repairers are:
Ask what could be wrong? By providing the manufacturer/service provider a description of the fault, they may know of the probable cause and work required. From this you may be able to get an estimate cost of the repairs over the phone.
Are parts available? Does the service provider have all of the parts “in stock” required to fix your machine? You will need to supply the manufacturer/service provider the brand of the device in question, the model and the product serial/machine number. This information is usually available on the rating plate, which is fixed to the front, underside or rear of the office machine.
What is the cost of a service call? Knowing if parts are available is the principal deciding factor as to whether you will commit to the costs of a service call. If no parts are available, there is a high chance you could be wasting your money by placing a service call. To have a service technician tell you parts are no longer available to fix your binding machine and charge you for a service call is something you can do without.
What is included in the cost of a service call? Does the service call out charge include any time in addition to the service call out? For instance the service call out fee may include the first 30 minutes?
What is the cost of labour and how is it billed? Is labour billed out in hour, 30 minute or 15 minute blocks?
What is the response time? How long would you expect to wait for your shredder repairs.
Ask if you can bring your Binding Machine, Laminator or Paper Shredding Machine to the repair centre? If undecided whether it is worthwhile outlaying money on a service call, ask if you can bring the machine to the repairer’s service centre. A repair quote may be less costly than a service call charge.
