Some Things Should Be Left to the Professionals

March 16, 2015 by Savannah Adkins

Don’t wait until your half way in to realize you’re in over your head with drilling rig service & repair.

Do you ever catch yourself starting a project just to leave it half way complete? Better yet do you create lists of things you’d like to do and never quite get around to actually doing it? The good news is you are not alone! All too often our customer’s come to us mid project or after years of allowing their units to sit before they finally decide to hand it off to our shop.

While Rig Source will take on just about any project during any stage of work, we don’t always recommend it – for your sake not ours! Here at Rig Source, we’re set up to support you so why not just start with us and save yourself the hassle. Using a professional doesn’t mean you’re not capable of doing the work yourself, and it doesn’t always cost you more when you look at the big picture. More often than not, it’s just sensible.

Just in case you’re still on the fence, consider the 3 points below and then determine if your project is manageable or better left in the hands of the professionals.

1. Time: You don’t have it & we do. Consider how long your rig will be sitting before you’re schedule allows you the time to tinker with it. Professionals are available all day, every day, and commit to meeting your deadlines.

2. Down Time: If it’s not working, you’re not making money. The amount of down time the drill rig gets while you contemplate the when’s and how’s to fixing it can end up costing you more than the professional’s labor costs.

3. Expertise: You’re a driller so your expertise is working the rig while we’ve got highly skilled mechanics whose expertise is repairing it. Professionals spend their lives working on drill rig repairs and know most rigs inside and out just as you know the ins and outs of drilling.

Sample Drill Rig Remount Project

CME 55 Remount Before & After Photos

Bore & Core Drilling needed a remount and came right here to Rig Source after realizing time was of the essence. This CME 55 drill was remounted to a Morooka MST 800 crawler carrier so it could accommodate Alabama’s terrain, and upon customer request was painted black on black.

To get in touch with us or to schedule your drill rig unit for service, remount or repair call 630.365.1649. Interested in viewing more of our work? Continue browsing our blog or join us on Facebook or Twitter for the latest shop projects and updates!
