ABOUT OUR SERVICING, MAINTENANCE & REPAIR SERVICES

Universal Services is one of Britain's leading contractors, offering a comprehensive maintenance service that is supported by our nationwide fleet of service vehicles.

Do you need regular inspections?

The regular inspection and maintenance of your indoor sports equipment and facilities is extremely important.

The Association for Physical Education (AfPE) has issued guidance for schools on the inspection and maintenance of gymnastics, sports hall, fixed play, fitness, and sports equipment. Their guidance highlights key requirements that schools and local authorities should consider when selecting a suitable company to carry out their sports equipment maintenance.

Why do you need to maintain your sports and fitness equipment?

Remember, keeping your site users safe is your responsibility under The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974’. The British Standard 1892 Part 1:1986 states: “It is important that all physical education apparatus is maintained in a first class, fully safe condition”. Rather than take on this important work yourself, it’s usually more effective and more cost-efficient to outsource regular checks and maintenance to specialist providers, like Universal Services.

Safety aside, servicing and maintaining your sports equipment on a regular basis will also:

  • Make sure the equipment you are using is readily available to your visitors
  • Make sure your equipment is laid out in a way that optimises the available space
  • Keep overall maintenance and repair costs to a minimum
  • Reduce the risk of having to replace your items sooner than expected
  • Give you complete peace of mind that your equipment is performing well, fitted securely, and enhancing your customers’ experience of your facility.

OUR GUARANTEE

With all our products – including our maintenance services – you are covered by our no quibble guarantee should a defect develop within 12 months which can be attributed to faulty workmanship or materials.

We guarantee to rectify the problem at our own expense. An inspection and report sheet will be completed by our service engineers during a visit, and a report will be emailed to you on completion for your records. A quotation will be generated and emailed in respect of any item of equipment considered to be beyond economical repair or requires further work to bring it up to standard.
