Generator Servicing and maintenance is an essential part of ensuring your generator works
It is essential that standby generators and UPS systems are serviced and maintained regularly and correctly. Hampshire Generators can take care of diesel generator servicing and maintenance for you for any brand or age of standby power equipment.
Standby power systems sometimes sit there, just waiting, for a long time. Only when the lights go out will you find out if it works or if a latent fault has also been waiting for this moment – it is essential that regular servicing is carried out and we are the local company that can assist with all aspects of diesel, petrol generator or UPS system ongoing servicing.
Hampshire Generators are the experts in generator servicing, maintenance and repair with years of experience in all aspects of generator servicing – we only use fully qualified Generator and Uninterruptible Power Supply engineers so you can rest assured that your system is in good hands. We use our own engineers and have our own fully equipped workshop and our approach is to minimise distruption to the customer and reduce the cost of generator servicing as far as possible.

why do regular generator maintenance?
Standby or prime generators are expensive items and are often required to comply with statutory regulations. It is also normal that your insurance company requires a generator to be properly serviced and maintained. Faults in a standby generator may go undetected and only become apparent when it is required to work – preventative maintenance helps highlight the issues that may arise before the generator is needed.
