THE REPAIR PROCESS:

First your ladders will be inspected for excessive wear or damage.

Inspection includes:

  • Check rails for cracks, bends, or other damage
  • Check steps for excessive wear or other damage
  • Check all rivets
  • Check all braces for bends or breaks
  • Check all safety labeling
  • On tripods check the entire third led assembly for excessive wear or other unsafe conditions

Next we will determine if your ladders are suitable for repair. Not all ladders should be repaired and may have outlived their useful life. Ladders that are determined to be unsafe even if repaired will be marked “NON-REPAIRABLE” and should no longer be used. We can destroy and dispose of them for you at your request.

Once we have determined the ladder is viable for repair, a quick calculation will be done assuring the repair will not exceed ½ the price of a new ladder of the same style/size.

The worn or damaged parts are now removed and replaced as needed.

All repairs are then recorded onto a worksheet to assure an accurate accounting of material and labor charges.

READY FOR PICK-UP:

Upon completion of the repairs to your ladders the total cost will be calculated and we will notify you by phone that your ladders are ready for pick-up. We will also email or fax your invoice to you at this time. Payment in full is due at time of pick-up unless other arrangements have been made in advance.

BEFORE YOU BRING THEM:

Go through your ladders and determine how many you would like to be inspected and repaired.

Once you have an accurate count contact us to make sure we have room available and that our turnaround time will be acceptable to you.

We typically repair ladders on a regular basis in the winter and summer months. Many years in the spring and fall months our turnaround times are much longer due to our increased workload in new ladder production. We strongly suggest you bring them in the Winter or Summer months.

We do not do written estimates as this is much too time consuming and costly on ladders.

If cost is a concern we suggest you bring a small sampling of ladders in for repair. This will allow you the opportunity to see our work and give you a better idea of what the cost will be to repair the bulk of your ladders.

We also will never fix a ladder that will cost more than ½ the price of a new one without your approval.

Our yard space is limited and we are unable to accommodate oversized trailers such as trailers with portable toilets. We will be happy to help you offload and load your ladders.

Please fill out the ladder repair service agreement found on this page prior to bringing in your ladders.

WE NEVER WANT TO CHARGE YOU FOR UNNECESSARY SERVICES, SO WE SUGGEST THE FOLLOWING:

Make sure all the ladders are free of "FIELD REPAIRS". This would include metal hardware such as nuts, bolts, or pop rivets. Tree rope, wire, wood, metal, or other fabricated parts that may have been used to make a temporary repair.

Ladders should be clean and free of mud, oil, sap, or excessive dirt.

These things can harm our tools and make it difficult to see damage and must be removed. We would be happy to perform these services for you but standard labor charges will apply.

**NOTE**   All ladders, new, used or repaired, must be inspected prior to each use as per manufacturer's instructions which can be found on our Safety page. We strongly urge all employers to make this part of your worker's daily routine.
