Mobile Hydraulic Hose Repair vs. Service Centres


When mission-critical equipment fails, you need the fastest, most effective repair possible. Fortunately, Australian businesses working in the heavy industry and construction sectors have a range of options when it comes to seeking servicing for hydraulic lines and equipment. 

But with so many options to choose from, which one is right for your operations? 1800 HOSE VAN is here to help. We’ll break down the differences between the two dominant forms of hydraulic maintenance providers – in-person service centres and mobile hydraulic hose repair. Read on and make the more informed choice for your business. 


No one wants to lug failed equipment across town to a service centre. When you suffer a fault to essential equipment, you’re already looking down the barrel of several hours of work stoppages – the need to transport  that to a distant service centre means that you could lose even more time. Mobile hose servicing solves the issue, allowing you to get on the phone the second a fault is detected and know that help is on the way immediately. 


Construction isn’t a cushy 9 to 5. Roadworks, civil engineering and large-scale infrastructure projects frequently work through the night and into weekends – exactly the time when a lot of service centres are shut. By comparison, many mobile hose repair businesses – including 1800 HOSE VAN – offer 24/7 breakdown service. So if your team is burning the midnight oil on a project, know that we can be there any time to ensure that you’re fully operational. Best of all, for job sites located far from your base of operations, you and your team enjoy the confidence of knowing that there’s always a hydraulic hose repair shop near you.  


Surely when it comes to the number of options, service centres have mobile maintenance vans beat? Not necessarily!
