CVA = Customer Value Agreement
What is a CVA? Here’s a crash course:
Regardless of machine size, age or its application you need to make sure that your equipment works
efficiently and has the lowest operating cost possible. Our Customer Value Agreements (CVA) are
available for your existing Cat fleet and Cat used equipment and cover individual systems, single pieces
of equipment, or entire fleets. Our CVA’s can range from simple Preventive Maintenance Kits to
sophisticated Total Cost Performance Guarantees, providing you with careful planning and ongoing
attention, allowing you to stay focused on running your business.

By properly maintaining your equipment with a Customer Value Agreement (CVA), you can maximize
the up-time of your equipment by identifying equipment issues before they cause failure. CVAs are
flexible. With no pre-set requirements or specific products and services that you must agree to buy, you
can be assured you are only signing up for what you really need. Costs can either be a flat rate monthly
fee or some other arrangement can be made based on your actual production hours.
