Our Maintenance Services

At Buy Manufacturers Direct, we are qualified to service any brand of concrete grinder, polisher, shot blaster, scarifier, floor scraper, and dust collector. Our technicians started in surface manufacturing so knowing the ins and outs of equipment comes naturally. Our technicians are surface preparation seasoned professionals with impeccable reputations. 

With decades of experience in both sales and operations, we have a team of technicians who can diagnose and repair most problems as well as perform comprehensive maintenance. All services are warrantied and conducted at our facility located in Morris, Illinois.

We know that most operators don’t have the time, equipment, or experience to confidently repair and maintain their surface prep machines. That’s why you can trust us to get the job done.

What is Included in a Service?

Service will vary from job to job. The scope of the work is determined by a customer’s request and what the technician finds in the exploration phase. Some customers want a quick fix while others want a complete transformation. At BMD, we want all of our customers to be happy and strive to make that happen every time.

Why Choose us Over the Original Equipment Manufacturer?

We know you have choices when it comes to service. But more people choose BMD because most manufacturers don’t offer repair services. Some contractors employ their own technicians who have various levels of experience, while other contractors rely on other, less experienced workers to repair and maintain their equipment.

At BMD, we have a combined 50+ years of experience specializing in surface preparation equipment. You can count on our team to get your surface preparation equipment working good as new!
