Equipment Program



Users of equipment are responsible for the general care and cleaning of their equipment. A repair service for equipment that is either faulty or damaged is provided.

Faulty or damaged equipment may be exchanged for an equivalent item, or if this is not possible, repairs are carried out by a technician, or one of our qualified contractors.

A repair may occur at the equipment's location or at a workshop, in which case a loan will be organised where necessary.

Any fault or damage that occurs while outside of South Australia becomes the responsibility of the user of the equipment. Any costs incurred for these repairs will not be reimbursed. If the item is not repaired and is brought back to South Australia, a repair may be organised.

Arranging Repairs

Between 8.30 am – 5.00 pm Monday – Friday a repair can be organised via a phone call or email.
