Save 50% on repair costs? The nationwide repair bonus makes it possible!

With the repair bonus, private individuals receive a subsidy of up to 200 Euros for the repair of electrical and electronic equipment (50% of the gross repair costs) and/or up to 30 Euros for obtaining a cost estimate. The subsidy is subtracted directly from the bill when a repair voucher is presented.

The Reparaturbonus is a milestone for the international repair and climate protection movement and a continuation of the success story of the Viennese Reparaturbon. All eyes on Austria and recently you can hear Sepp Eisenriegler on US internet radio!

Stellungnahme zum EU-Kommssionsvorschlag: Wir fordern einen EU-weiten Reparaturbonus!

Sepp Eisenriegler from R.U.S.Z comments on the current EU Commission proposal for a right to repair from 22 March 2023. The main point of criticism is the lack of reduction in repair costs, where we in Austria are already further along with the repair bonus. But there is also a lot to be said about standardisation, warranty, quality assurance and spare parts availability.

The time is now!

With the systemic change from the resource-destroying, linear to a circular economy suitable for grandchildren (EU Green Deal, Circular Economy Package and adaptation of the Ecodesign Directive), Europe will clear the way for durable and repairable products in the next few years. This will require a nationwide repair infrastructure. From the 2nd quarter of 2022, there will be a generous repair subsidy throughout Austria, which supports repairs for consumers with 50% and means a massive increase in sales for repair businesses. With the current amendment of the VAT Directive, the repair of household appliances will be further cheapened by a drastic reduction in the VAT rate. As a pioneer company with over 20 years of experience, R.U.S.Z has developed an eco-social franchise system for this purpose.

Dear RUSZ team, you have given me pure joy! Right now I'm listening to my hot rock'n'roll music from the 53 year old studio tape recorder you repaired. Elvis sings "if you are looking for trouble..." ("if you are looking for trouble..."). I was not looking for trouble, I HAD trouble, sorrow. And you have made joy out of it. At minimal cost. Who still knows the old technologies? There is hardly any service possibility in Europe for these devices. Thank you very much!

My broken cooktop is working again! The technician came on time, was very friendly and was done within 10 minutes. Filled out online appointment booking, redeemed repair voucher and the whole thing was stress free.
I am quite thrilled and will certainly use the company again or recommend it to others!

Thank you for the prompt and perfect repair. My Marantz amplifier was a top device in the 70's, but the ravages of time have greatly diminished the listening pleasure.
Now he sounds again, just like he did back then. If he does it again for so long, he will outlive me :-))).

I would just like to thank you and your technicians for saving the life of my 30-year-old food processor. The device brought to you - error searched and found - repaired and lo and behold 2 days later picked up again. And all this at a fair price and also received and attended by very friendly staff. I will certainly recommend this company, or if necessary, take again in claim. So thank you again!
