Fix OR Buy New – that is the question:

Often we get equipment in for repair and after a diagnosis we deem it to be “uneconomical to repair”.
What does this mean? We base this diagnosis on several things;
• Age of the equipment
• Availability and cost of parts
• Labour costs
• Reliability of the equipment after repair
Repaired equipment can sometimes be used a “spare” or “backup”; sold to staff for the price of repair or even donated to groups or clubs which may be in need.

New equipment has the advantage of warranties and keeping up with technology – budget allowing. But BEWARE of replacing an older but high quality unit, with a cheap (“on special”) replacement. These are generally domestic machines that lack image quality and solid construction (and/or backup and service).
