Maintenance Contracts FAQs

What are the health & safety implications if I don’t have a maintenance contract?

As the equipment manufacturer we recommend that regular maintenance visits take place throughout the operational life of your equipment. This is to ensure that the product is working correctly and does not contravene any health and safety regulations.

Frontier Pitts would undertake the responsibility of maintaining your equipment, thus limiting the chance of a breakdown and ensuring your site’s health and safety record is maintained. Without routine maintenance, as the owner of the equipment, you may become liable for any accident that occurs on your site. This applies especially if the product has not been maintained in accordance with the operation and maintenance manuals issued with the product.

 

How long does it take to process my contract?

We typically take 10 working days to process your contract once we have received the returned contract from you. This can be increased to 20 working days if you require a pre-contract inspection.

Once your contract has been counter signed, we will return it to you with your maintenance information pack which outlines our procedures and all the relevant maintenance details.

 

How do I request an engineer?

Frontier Pitts is an ISO 9001:2008 registered company, meaning we operate a quality management system to British standards. We also offer guaranteed response cover therefore all callouts must be in writing. Written confirmation determines the exact time of your request. 

 

What are the callout procedures?

If you have a 48 or 24 “working hour” contract then you can only contact us within normal office hours (8.30am to 5.30pm). You will have to make a written request by fax 01293 560650 or email. service@frontierpitts.com.
