German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering
German term or phrase:Garantiefahrten
contract for services rendered for "....mechanische und technologische Erprobung sowie Inbetriebnahme, *Garantiefahrten* und Übergabe der Anlage"
Explanation: I've had this a number of times, and I think this is the same again.
It's a service trip undertaken by a mechanic to answer a call from the customer while the plant is still under guarantee, and thus will not have to be paid for - not in full, anyway, depending on the exact terms of the guarantee.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks David but as I said it's got nothing to do with trips, call-outs or the like; I take it as 'run' in the context of installation, commissioning and approval of machinery.
