Recognizing the importance of preventive service, Fitness Equipment Service & Setup has designed a program focused specifically on reducing maintenance costs and down time for our customers. The fitness industry is very strong in equipment sales but weak in servicing equipment. Once warranties expire on new equipment, it is difficult to get the service support needed by the equipment vendors. This is where Fitness Equipment Service & Setup comes in. We are committed to our service and make it our priority. When on a Preventive maintenance plan, our technicians run through an extensive check list to be sure that all servicing is completed. Here are a few things that are done during schedule maintenance.
