Servicing Your Packaging Machines: How to Find Help

March 17, 2022

Machine Servicing

If you’ve been using packing machines for a while, you know how hard it is to find someone to service them.  As your business grows, you may find it necessary to find a packing machine service technician. But, how do you go about getting the right person for the job?

You could go directly to your manufacturer, but if it’s an older machine, they might not have the supplies to help you. If you’re stuck in this problem, keep reading to find out where you can find someone to service your packaging machines.

When Do You Need Your Machines Serviced?

There are a few different reasons you’ll need your packaging machine serviced. The main reason is preventative maintenance. Just like you get checkups at the doctor, your packaging machines need checkups too. You should be regularly servicing your packing machines to make sure they’re working properly.

Another reason you’ll need a machine servicing technician is for emergency repairs. When your machine stops working or you can tell something is broken, you know it’s time to call in a technician.

Why Can it Be so Hard to Find Help?

Packing machine service technicians are hard to find for a few reasons. First, the industry is relatively small and there aren’t many people who know how to service these machines. Second, most packing machine companies only hire people with a lot of experience. And finally, many technicians don’t want to travel or work on commission.

These factors come together to make it very difficult to get your packaging machines serviced.

How Can You Find a Technician?

Not every packing machine retailer will offer maintenance options when you buy from them. That’s a major thing you should consider when buying your machinery.

If they don’t offer maintenance options, you may have to reach out to your manufacturer. Some manufacturers have a list of verified technicians.

Another place you can find packing machine service technicians is through trade shows or industry events. There are usually a few people at these events who know how to work on packing machines. You can also look online for packing machine service technicians.

Whichever method you choose, make sure you get references and check them thoroughly. You don’t want to hire someone who’s going to do more harm than good.
