Here are step-by-step instructions:

A pre-paid FedEx shipping label will be sent via email to ship your tool freight pre-paid to Makita for service

Step 3: Take your Makita Tool to a FedEx shipping location

Step 4: Makita receives and repairs the tool

You pay for parts only, unless under warranty (no labor cost and no shipping cost)

Step 5: Makita ships the tool back to you

Note: Items over 70 lbs. are excluded from pre-paid shipping and will still need to be brought directly to the Makita Factory Service Center. Users can call 1(800)4-MAKITA to contact your local Makita Factory Service Center to arrange a large item drop-off. This offer is valid only within continental U.S.A. (excluding residents of Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Alaska).
