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!

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.

Möchte mich einfach nur ganz herzlich bei Ihnen bzw Ihren Technikern bedanken,dass Sie meiner 30 Jahre alte Küchenmaschine das Leben gerettet haben. Das Gerät zu Ihnen gebracht - Fehler gesucht und gefunden - repariert und siehe da 2 Tage später wieder abgeholt. Und das alles zu einem fairen Preis und auch von sehr freundlichen Personal empfangen und betreut worden.
Also ich werde diese Firma sicher weiter empfehlen,bzw wenn notwendig selber wieder in Anspruch nehmen.
Also vielen Dank nochmal!

Herr Younes vom 14. Bezirk war wegen meiner Miele Waschmaschine, die keinen Muks mehr von sich gegeben, hat bei mir. Er hat in kürzester Zeit entdeckt, worum es geht. Hat mir einen Kostenvoranschlag gemacht und den kaputten Teil sofort bestellt. Nach einer Woche wurde ich angerufen, dass der Teil bereit ist zum Austauch. Er kam zum versprochenen Termin!! Er hat einen gebrauchten Teil mitgebracht und eingebaut. Es funktioniert einwandfrei und er hat mir – bin in Pension – auch noch viel Geld erspart. Vielen herzlichen Dank und ich werde euch bestimmt weiterempfehlen…. vielen, vielen Dank für die Hilfe

Ich komme wieder und werde euch auch weiterempfehlen!

Ich bin wirklich begeistert. Der Techniker war überpünktlich, sehr freundlich und vor allem blitzschnell.
Binnen 20 Minuten war mein Trockner wieder in Ordnung.
