How long will it take to repair my power tools?

Power tools are essential for a variety of tasks around the home and on job sites. When they break down, it can be frustrating and time-consuming to get them repaired. The length of time it takes to repair a power tool can vary depending on several factors, including the type of tool, the severity of the problem, the availability of replacement parts, and what transport options are available.

Typically we could say the average repair take one to two weeks, but this can vary.

One of the most common repairs for power tools is replacing a worn or broken switch. This type of repair is relatively simple and can often be completed in just a few minutes. This is of course dependant on whether that particular switch, or spare parts for that switch, are readily available. If the problem is more complex, such as a broken gear or motor, the repair process may take longer. In these cases, the tool may need to be disassembled and thoroughly inspected to determine the root cause of the problem. This can take several hours or even days, depending on the complexity of the issue.

Another factor that can impact the repair time is the availability of a qualified technician, or in our case, how busy our repair shop is. If we’re busy and backed up with other repairs, it may take longer to get your tool serviced. In some cases, it may be necessary to send the tool to a manufacturer for repair, which can add additional time to the process. It’s important here to note that any customer who has purchased tools from our Melbourne store, or Online Shop, gets first priority for any repairs.

In general, it's important to be patient when dealing with power tool repairs. It may take longer than you expect to get your tool back in working order, but it's important to ensure that the repair is done properly to prevent future issues.

We are expert repair specialists, and the tool manufacturers even use us as their local repair agents because we’re that good.
Also, don’t forget to think about the maintenance of your power tools. Each tool is different and you should follow the manufacturers advice to keep your tools in top condition.

In conclusion, the time it takes to repair a power tool depends on multiple factors such as the type of tool, the severity of the problem, the availability of replacement parts, and the availability of one of our qualified technicians. It can be as quick as a few minutes , a few weeks, or if you’re really unlucky, we unfortunately have to tell some of our customers they’ll need to start looking for a replacement.
