The key feature is flexibility
Cleveland Brothers Customer Support Agreements are customized to fit your business needs, your equipment and your applications. There are no pre-set requirements or specific services that you must agree to buy. Instead, we will analyze how you work, where you work and the extent of your service capabilities to determine the type of CSA that is right for you. A number of payment options are also available to meet your business needs or cash flow concerns.
TLC Preventive Maintenance (PM) Agreement
Preventive maintenance is one of the most effective ways to keep operating costs under control. But equipment maintenance is just one of your responsibilities—and if not managed effectively, it can keep you away from other business functions. We can create an agreement that places responsibility for preventive maintenance with our experienced technicians. In our shop or on your job site, all services are performed to factory specifications.
- Highly trained technicians inspect and maintain your equipment.
- Written reports and analysis provide additional indicators that should be addressed to prevent costly repairs.
- S•O•S SM Fluid Analysis maximizes equipment life by identifying potential concerns and abnormal wear.
Choose a specific machine system-engine, hydraulics, drive train, transmission or undercarriage, for example—and focus expert attention on the repair and maintenance of these components. This expertise supplements your current resources and strengthens your overall maintenance and repair program.
Equipment inspections programs
Our trained technicians provide complete inspection programs using years of experience and the most advanced diagnostic tools. Inspections are performed at factory-recommended intervals, and written reports are provided to let you know what's going on with your equipment and help you make more informed equipment management decisions.
Other recommended services
Minimize costs and maximize machine availability by focusing on three areas:
- Contamination Control—recommendations to prevent system contamination as well as steps to detect problems in equipment efficiency long before your operators notice them.
- S•O•SSM Fluid Analysis—analysis of component wear rates and recommended actions.
- Technical Inspections—visual and performance checks of critical systems.
Depending on your existing resources, a Total Maintenance and Repair Agreement may be your best option for maximum productivity and cost savings. We can provide all maintenance and repair for a pre-set price, for a specified period of time. Repair management and planned component replacement are important elements of this option. A TM&R Agreement can ensure that you achieve the longest possible equipment life at the lowest possible cost per hour of operation.
Customized agreements are available to suit your specific needs. We will handle all of the paperwork. We can maintain your service history and increasing your resale value in the process.
Always the best products
Another important benefit of every CSA is the exclusive use of genuine CAT parts and maintenance products. They're your guarantee of quality, performance and value in all of your equipment service.
