Rental unit damaged? How expensive is the repair and what is really damaged?
When a construction machine or a hire plant is damaged, the question often arises: How did it happen? Who is to blame? What will the repair cost? This often leads to a dispute between the parties involved. The hirer of a construction machine does not like to take responsibility and sees the fault with the construction machine rental company, the condition or the equipment of the machine. The lessor is of the opinion that he has delivered a perfectly functioning machine to the lessee. In such cases, only an external expert opinion can clarify the fronts.
Who can provide the expert opinion?
Contact us with details of your claim point in a short phone call we can explain what we can do for you. Our technician can inspect the machine on site. Together with you, we discuss the possible cause of the fault and check whether the machine was in a safe working condition. With this data, our management can provide a clear analysis and a written expert opinion.
Repair cost estimation for a damaged digger
Rising spare parts prices combined with reduced availability and a shortage of labour are shaking up the price structure in many sectors of the economy. The same is true in the construction machinery sector. That is why it is essential to independently check prices offered for repairs. The owner or the injured party will always try to set the price as high as possible in the event of damage to the construction machine. The insurance company on the other hand, or the user of the construction machine, are naturally interested in investing as little as possible in the claims settlement. They will therefore assess the damage as low as possible. Hire an independent expert to determine the amount of damage.
