  • What is the difference between RTB and Collect & Return Warranty (5 Year)

    A RTB warranty means "Return to base" - This means you will have arrange & pay to return the item to supplier - This can be costly and a nusiance if you do not have an account with a courier.

    Our R-Tech collect and return warranty makes this process very quick and easy. Once we have confirmed you have a fault with machine, we will do the following. 

    • Arrange collection via next working day UK courier (48hr offshore)
    • Quickly repair the machine at our Technical and R&D centre in Gloucester
    • Deliver back via next working day UK courier (48hr offshore)
    • All costs covered by R-Tech - Yes, Collection, repair and delivery!

    No questions, no hassle, just honest and reliable service - A true no quibble warranty

  • What are terms of your 5 Year Warranty?

    R-Tech offer a 5 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.

  • I am buying an R-Tech welder still under warranty, is the warranty transferable?

    The easy answer is YES, we feel it is only fair to transfer any existing warranty to the new customer.

    and we will transfer the warranty into your name.
