Hilti Tool Service Terms and Conditions

1. Hilti Tool Service

If a defect occurs with a Hilti tool, Hilti will take care of it quickly, professionally and completely free of charge for up to 2 years from the date of purchase.

 After that we continue to prove the quality of our products by putting a limit on what a repair can cost – for the lifetime of the tool – that is the entire estimated lifecycle of a Hilti tool.

 We even provide you a 20 years manufacturer’s warranty against manufacturing defects. That’s not just reassuring to know, it’s unique in this field.


2. Speed promise

We will return your tool in three working days or the repair is free. Any repairs which are returned to you after three days will be free of charge.

 To qualify for the speed promise, tool repair orders must be notified to Hilti via Customer Services or online between the hours of [8 am-4 pm] and the tools must be ready for prompt collection. Tools left at a Hilti Store will be collected the following working day. Day 1 of the speed promise is the day the tool is collected for straight repairs and if a customer needs a quotation, then Day 1 starts from the moment we received a purchase order and proof of payment.
