The Importance of Service and Springs.

Equipment Health.

Have you had your equipment serviced by ANYONE?

Everyone should read this.

The reason why we say ANYONE, is when you buy Pilatesequip™ machines, we offer a free Service Checklist for you to perform in-house services. There is no reason why you shouldn’t have the safest and best running equipment in town. Your clients will pick up on this. Your clients may have been in other studios in your area, and this is a big point of difference to separate you from the rest. If you show you care, they will see this. If Pilates machines breakdown or springs often snap (rare on our equipment but common on other brands), they will see this. There is no reason to say that servicing is too expensive when you buy Pilatesequip™.

You should have a service plan in place to show that you’re servicing your Pilates equipment in case an accident ever occurs. The main thing is prevention, minimising the chance of this ever happening.

Cars get services to keep you safe, do the same with your equipment.

Springs: The Heart of a Reformer.

Why keeping springs up-to date could cost around $13000.

Your clients demand quality when using Pilates machines. They also need to be safe too.

When other brands request spring replacement every two years, it may be an attempt to disguise their use of cheap, poorly made springs. This can cost you many dollars in many ways. Cheap springs may fail and break within their two-year service interval, potentially resulting in bodily harm and the knock-on effect of a diminished business reputation. Additionally, the high frequency of replacing springs can be a costly exercise.

Pilatesequip prides itself on Australian manufacturing and quality, a great example being our far superior springs. Most manufacturer’s springs are sourced from China and purchased for around $3 each, and yet they retail for around $80-$90 each. Our Australian-made springs are made to last with a replacement interval of eight years. At a retail cost of approximately $85 per spring, five springs per reformer and an average of 10 reformers in a Reformer class, this saves you $13,000 every eight years.

This drive for quality means you can rest assured in the safety of all users of Pilatesequip products. However, it is still vital to look after machinery to maintain longevity and smooth operation. Free and easy to follow maintenance schedules for all Pilatesequip products are available on the instructions and service web page, to keep your equipment safe and working at its optimum performance.
