Repairing & Remanufacturing

We have a simple process for repairing or remanufacturing hoists.

  1. Submit an RFQ for remanufacturing; an email will be sent to you with an RMA number.
  2. Attach a packaging slip that includes the RMA number to the hoist.
  3. Mail the hoist to Harriman Material Handling or arrange to have us pick up the hoist.
  4. We will disassemble the hoist, send you a repair quote and if necessary a replacement quote.

If you decide to repair or remanufacture your part, we’ll take care of it and return to you the part you need quickly. If neither option works for you, we’ll return your hoist and only charge for the tear down fees. Either way, we work hard to ensure we find you exactly what you need and get it to you quickly and efficiently. Put our cost-effective material handling solutions to the test!

We make it easy for you to be up and running in no time. We provide maintenance contracts for preventative maintenance which saves you money on costly emergency repairs. Your emergency repair is available through your maintenance contract!
