When It Comes to Motor Repair, You Have Options

Motors are what keep many companies running, so when one needs repair, a quick turnaround is essential. At French Gerleman, we understand minimizing downtime is important, so we make the process as simple as possible for you, and respond quickly.

We offer free pick-up and delivery when you have a motor needing repair. Our delivery fleet is always ready to transport your motor to be repaired overnight or with same day service. This can save you hundreds of dollars in transportation and downtime, and the headache of arranging moving your motors yourself.

Please note, due to variances in our delivery fleet, our free pick-up and delivery offer does have a weight limit which varies by branch. Larger weight motors or father delivery zones may require additional freight charges.  Please contact a French Gerleman team member for additional information.

What is typically included with repairs?

There are lots of reasons a motor may need repair and we address them, ensuring that your motor is cleaned, in working order, balanced, and looking like new when we return it to you.

When a motor fails, should you repair it or replace it?

If your motor is 25 horsepower and lower, it may be a better investment to purchase a new motor. Consider a cost factor of 60% of the new price when replacing. If a new motor does seem like the best option for you, we have an extensive in-stock inventory and competitive prices. Make sure to contact us for a quote so we can help you get up and running again.
