Preventative Maintenance for Restaurants

How Preventative Maintenance Works With 86 Repairs

We've built a restaurant preventative maintenance program helps you prevent equipment breakdowns and reduce maintenance costs. 

Wall-to-Wall Equipment Inventories

We keep comprehensive digital equipment inventories for our customers on all pieces over $250. We can lead an informed discussion on which service categories would benefit the most from preventative maintenance plans, and which ones you don’t need.

Source 3 Quotes Per Category

We source up to 3 quotes per service category and assemble the quotes in an easy-to-read format for you to make your final decision. We source quotes by individual category, instead of bundling, so you aren’t sold large-scale contracts you don’t need.

Schedule, Reschedule, Coordinate

We manage all communication with service providers and location staff to make sure preventative maintenance is scheduled, appointments are met, and any reschedules don’t fall through the cracks.

Documentation and Verified Proof

We provide comprehensive proof of work of work reports with verbal and written statements and photographic documentation of key PM activities, in addition to a blind verification process.

Preventive Maintenance in Action

Do you want a digital paper trail at your fingertips?

With a PM program from 86 Repairs, you can get a clear picture of what’s what's being done and when.

With preventive maintenance plans from 86 Repairs you can:

  • Access a check list of “chores” performed by the service provider
  • View before-and-after photographs of the work
  • Get full visibility into the status of all PM work

Overtime, we help you tell a powerful story about your equipment and show you exactly what happened and what work was completed when.

"Preventative Maintenance saves up to 18% YoY compared to costly reactive maintenance."

"As an independent operator with 5 locations of my own I'm pulled in every direction and always looking for tools to streamline our processes without additional overheard.
When I heard about 86 Repairs, I immediately saw the value. Their job is to handle one-off issues as they happen, create preventative maintenance (PM) services to limit future downtimes, and ensure all vendors are managed correctly. 
Because they speak the language of the trades, they can work with technicians to accomplish more, stay on time, and limit the scope of work to what is essential. 86 Repairs is a great partner and I highly recommend them to any organization."
