  • R-Tech 3 Year Collect & Return Warranty

    R-Tech offer a 3 year collect and return warranty on the R-Tech Mig WeldersTig Welders , Plasma Cutter & MMA Stick Welders 

    Our warranty is a no-quible collect and return service, it means that in the unlikely event of failure we will arrange collection at our expense, fix the fault (normally turned around within 48 hours) and ship it back to you at our expense. 

    No other UK welding supplier offers this high level of service. Ask yourself if your current supplier would give you this kind of support. 

    As we are engineer's ourselves, we understand the hassle and cost of machine downtime so we always provide a very quick turn-around of all repairs thus reducing your downtime. Some manufacturer's can take up to a month to complete warranty repairs which we feel is ridiculous.
