There are many manufacturers, resellers, retailers and independent engineers that offer repair. How many actually champion repair?

For a lot of them, repair is offered but their preferred focus is on new product sales. There is a tendency for others to write off equipment from a visual inspection perspective rather than from a true technical inspection, which would actually confirm that equipment can still be repaired, assuming they have the means to do so. This may be because they don't have the capacity or expertise to complete the repair, or more often they would prefer to sell a brand-new unit. 

At CATS we champion repair because in our professional opinion, repairing where possible is better than replacement. In actual fact when we have been able to inspect units written off by others, we have been able to successfully repair over 50% of these.

Why are CATS repair champions? Well there a number of reasons, which include:

1. It's environmentally responsible to reuse fixable technology. (We live in a society that has a throwaway culture)
2. Most genuine policyholders would prefer to have their equipment repaired as their equipment is known to them and they were happy with their equipment before their incident.

To increase the chances of repair you need a good network of assessment engineers - CATS has that.

You need a good network of repair engineers - CATS also has that.

You also need to be able to repair within a reasonable time frame in order that the damaged equipment is returned to its pre-incident condition in a timely manner - CATS can do this too.

UK-wide, CATS can arrange for damaged technology to be assessed and repaired in a timely manner, for considerably less than the cost of replacement.

In addition, all CATS repairs come with a minimum 12-month warranty.
